If you've been following me for a while on Instagram, you may have known that I'm really into my paper planners. After dying a slow "death by calendar invite" in one of my prior work lives, I swore to myself, never again. Paper planners really help me slow down the chaos inside my brain and help me focus on what's actually important and what I can realistically accomplish during any given time frame.
I've done the Day Designer and the STIL Classics planner, and now, I'm at the point, where I really want to customize my own and have an all-in-one solution. I recently learned about the whole Bullet Journal idea and thought this would be the perfect next step in my planner evolution journey.
So of course, I ordered my favorite Moleskine journal (black, leather, soft cover, squared) in an extra large version and started bringing Pinterest to life with my very own Bullet Journal 1.0. Looking forward to keeping you updated on how it goes. I've already used it for one week and have some revisions to make with my initial setup--but that's the beauty of the BuJo--it's totally customizable.
