I am just about to wrap up my very first month of bullet journaling and I love it.
Not familiar with bullet journaling? In a nutshell, it is a streamlined and highly customizable way of planning. It is a system of rapid logging that makes use of bulleted lists, thus the name.
The whole concept was invented by a digital product designer in New York name Ryder Carrol. If you are just getting started, Ryder’s website is a great place to being.
Of course, we humans like to complicate everything – even things that were designed for their simplicity. Therefore, many of us couldn’t handle the simplicity of pages with just bullets and had to start adding pretty layouts and color and doodles and all kinds of things to our bullet journals.
I love how planning simplifies (or at the very least slightly organizes) my life but I am also a sucker for good design and beautiful layouts. For years, I have spent the months leading up to January searching the web for the perfect daily planner. There are some great ones out there but none really fit my needs and when I discovered bullet journaling I realized I had finally found the answer to all my planning needs.
So for those of you who are new to bullet journaling, those who are bullet journal junkies and those of you who are just looking for some more BuJo inspiration I have prepared a video that will give you a walk through of my January layout and show you what I have planned for February.

I hope you enjoyed the video. As promised I have a printable template of my February layout for you. Click the picture below to download and print the template. My template is for personal use only. Please feel free to pin this page or share the link with your friends.
This template can be used in two ways. Print onto card stock and carefully cut out the boxes with a craft knife and use as a stencil. You can also print the template and lay underneath your pages and use it as a tracer.
