I love my bullet journal so much that I honestly don’t think I could live without it.
I continue to create spreads or lists for anything I want to track.
Since I work full time and blog, I use them to keep track of upcoming projects for both.
Bullet journal can organize just about everything in your life and these ideas will help you think about what you want to include and track.

Who doesn’t love a beautiful bullet journal spreads?
We are intrigued by its beauty every time we stumble upon one we like.
At the same time, we are also intimidated by those with amazing skills. I lack these skills but I don’t let that stop me from creating the lists and spreads that work for me.
They keep my life in order. At the same time, they allow me to be creative and unleash my creativity with my own ideas.
Each bullet journal should be catered to each owner’s needs. For me, mine tracks my whole life from this week’s schedule to monthly, yearly, tasks and projects.
It takes awhile to get used to constantly using a planner and releasing that creative side. Simply start and look at it every morning and evening to get into the habit of adding to it and tracking everything.
What you need to start:
Before you move into the lovely bullet journal spreads I have to show you, I want to recommend some of the products I use for my own bullet journaling.
- This is the exact Bullet Journal I use.
- These are the markers I personally use. You can go with fancy Tombows but I like these.
- These are the stencils I use. They are metal with their own case.
- This is the washi tape I use. I like skinny tape.
Now let’s get you looking at these awesome bujo spreads…
Bullet Journal Ideas
Habit Tracker Spread
Habit trackers are used to track anything you want to hold yourself accountable with and improve on areas such as health and fitness or even how much sleep you get. I track a multitude of things from sleep to abstaining from alcohol, bread, etc.
Personally, I love to clean my own space. However, I find a tracker helps be sure I don’t miss a task and is especially useful if a party or event is coming up.
Most of us don’t drink enough water, myself included. I like to track my water intake to hold myself accountable.
Since I have such a horrible memory, I track my period. I really hate when the doc asks and I have no clue. It used to help me know when to add supplies but I have switched to a menstrual cup now.
I like to track what movies I want to see and mark them as I see them. Especially helpful since I never remember names (poor memory remember). Last summer I had to babysit contractors at the facility I work at (it was closed so it simply meant being present) and I watched movies the entire time. My list was called the summer of movies 🙂
Remember that poor memory? This tracker helps me track what I owe and what I’ve paid as well as due dates. There are a multitude of finance trackers and several following the Dave Ramsey plan.
Personally, I love the mood tracker. I think it helps know what might set off a bad mood. Especially if it is a source such as food or chemical and you are trying to narrow it down.
Having to deal with anxiety, I find it’s helpful to have a guide in your bullet journal. We are often so focused on the mood or issue that we forget what helps. This handy reference will help.
Sleep trackers are a great tool for those with sleep issues or that the lack of sleep causes other issues such as migraines, etc. One of my triggers was lack of sleep and I found it by tracking everything in my day to day.
Birthdays and Holidays
I am sure you won’t be surprised now when I say that I forget important dates. This spread helps me be sure not to forget anyone. Just check the spread and add the birthdays to your daily or weekly spreads so no more forgetting birthdays.
Savings Goal Spread
A savings tracker will keep you accountable so you can reach whatever your goal might be.
TV Show Tracker
Track the shows you watch and what episode you are on. I am a binge-watcher so I also track Netflix. I tend to not watch tv for a week or more and then catch up.
If you are trying to find motivation, keep track of your progress is great for accountability. Track any of your fitness goals for the month.
Dreaming of a dream trip? Track your savings and what you’d like to do while on the trip.
