    BUJO Bullet Journalling 2018 4th Dec 17 at 11:46 AM
    Anyone here currently using or starting a bullet journal please?


    Using one of these seem to be a sensible idea to replace my usual scribbled list and notes on bits of random paper so I can be more organised for 2018

    I've never heard the term before, but having G00gled it, it looks pretty much like the method I've been using for donkeys' years.
    I use a lot of colour-coding, too.

    Yes I do. Cheapo notebook from the works. I follow the minimalist original method pretty much.

    It's the only diary I seem to be able to use consistently. It's messy, raggedy and I love it. The only thing I'm considering changing is writing up the monthly spreads at the start of the year, I hate having to do it every month.

    I have monthly budget pages each month, track what meals we eat and note down the odd idea. The review and transfer is important, it helps me decide what is important and what is not.

    I'd give it a go, not get caught up on the prettiness, and avoid 'bujo inspo' like the plague at least at first.

    I came across the concept earlier in the year on the Marie Kondo thread. I'm not sure I follow all the 'rules' (although obviously you make your own rules!), but it's been amazingly helpful.

    Instead of having lists on various scraps of paper they are all in one place, and I can see what I was doing a month ago if I need to. Details of projects that I am planning, measurements of things around the house etc are all somewhere I can find them. I usually start tomorrow's list before I go to bed, and I've found it really helpful in recording all the little tasks that I usually forget.

    I don't do the fancy drawings, nor do I do colour coding – I'm just using up an old notebook. Why wait until January, I think it would be really useful to do now when getting ready for Christmas!

    I aim to keep it plain and simple - I want to use it to be efficient and organised so decoration will be minimal.


    I use my diary a lot but its difficult to keep track of ongoing projects and its a pain to rewrite daily and weekly reminders soI think a checklist to reference will help
