I. AM. LOST.
I truly admire those who can wander around through life without plans, schedules, organizers, alerts, banners, and alarms to get them through the day. Now don’t get me wrong. My Sundays are pretty unplanned.
However; I must confess, I’ve LITERALLY scheduled burrito Sundays, movie binging, and couch potato-ing into my google calendar. For Sundays.
So… you’re still scheduled.
Uhmmm…. yeah. Ya got me.
It’s possible I do have a problem. You do. Because yes, that may still be in the realm of being scheduled. I guess. *shrugs and shuffles feet against the floor
Right. Anyway, moving on to my currently “scheduled” post…
LET’S GET THE BOOKS (AND OUR LIVES) ORGANIZED!
Have you heard of bullet journaling? It’s an overview of your month, followed by a tracker for your daily tasks you want done, followed by a list of other things you may want to do; but may or may not have time to get to. Which, you can push to the next month God-willing. This may sound complicated. But I promise it’s not.
I’ve come up with a simplistic version that has proven to work well for me. I don’t spend too much time creating the BUJO (short acronym thats super cute for bullet journal!), I keep it’s design simple, page count to a few pages (never more than FOUR), and I color code each task and check mark for easy eye-catching satisfaction!
So, grab your markers, crayons, and stickers!
Mine are all items I already have on-hand. I don’t buy anything new except maybe the stickers. Which, if you know my obsession with Dollar Tree, you’ll completely understand… I find all my cute stickers and die-cut designs from, YEP. You guessed it!
*insert bells and whistles here. **with streamers, sound makers and celebratory cheers
If I can get it at Dollar Tree, I do. She totally does.
I do not feel the need to hit the stationary store or the big box retailers of
office confectionary to over spend. NO THANKS. Additionally, with the over saturation of “how much can we buy” instead of saving what we have and using a limited financially ambitious creative resource to accomplish the same thing someone else wasted their money on…. Why would you want to over pay?!
Of course not!
So, here we go! Let’s plan. Let’s get organized. Let’s save moula. Let’s BUJO.
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial on planning your own bullet journal to plot your month.
Speaking of plotting. I’ve barely mentioned it. But, I imagine that with
planning comes plotting and therefore; plotting is planning…? Or planning is a plot?
What the hell are you saying?
And so, the plot thickens.
