Are you on the hunt for some simple bullet journal spread ideas? I’ve created some really cool, easy ideas to replicate. Check them out!
I love staying organised and motivated. That’s why I purchased my new productivity planner for this upcoming year, which I have written a post about already. This planner has daily spreads to stay organised each day, and then a weekly overview to complete at the end of each week.
However, the one thing this planner didn’t have, which I thought would help with organising the weekly tasks, and then distributing them throughout the days of the week, was weekly spreads. After watching A LOT of AmandaRachLee on YouTube, alongside a bit of Caitlin’s Corner, I felt inspired to start my own little bullet journal, which I can use alongside my new productivity planner, just for weekly spreads. As I really want to start a proper bullet journal next year, I thought this would be a great way to practice my creativity, and see whether I will actually utilise it regularly.
So, I rooted around one of my cupboards and found a pretty much empty notebook which I received as a gift when I was 13 (I always asked for stationery like this as gifts back then, and ended up never using it, so I’m so pleased I have finally found a use for this little item). I then just started doodling away, to create weekly spreads up until December, so I’m all ready for the academic year ahead, to achieve my goals…
Bullet Journal Ideas: Plan With Me
I firstly started off with a little overview of my final year; I added a little quote to inspire me, and then used this interesting timetable layout, so I can visualise my timetable more easily (I have not added in all my timetable, for internet safety reasons… safety first!).
I then added an overview of my year for each term of uni, using small “month at a glance” layouts, with space at the side to add important dates.
As September has not been particularly busy, and is nearly over, I pretty much skipped it, and went straight to my October spreads. I did a lovely little title page, with a very inspirational quote at the side:
I also created weekly spreads for each week of the month (my favourite few are pictured):
The idea is, I write all my weekly deadlines, tasks, and general to dos over on the left page at the start of the week. I then distribute these tasks across the week, over on the right hand page. This means I can easily view my week, and can ensure I evenly spread out my tasks over each day. After doing that, I can then thoroughly organise each days activities every morning for the day ahead, using the daily spreads in my productivity planner:
Moving onto November, I got even more creative. I have to say, I thought it might be quite tedious to do all the lettering and decoration for each page but, as I got more into it, I actually really enjoyed all the doodling! I am, by no means, an arty person, so this just goes to show that anyone can do it too.
Here is my favourite weekly spread of this month:
Finally, I finished my weekly spreads at December, as this will be when the holidays are, and I’m not sure how much I will use the spreads after the first few weeks of this month. This is my absolute favourite spread of them all so far:
You can see the progression of my creativity as we go through the bullet journal, as the weeks seem to get more elaborate as we progress through the journal:
So, those are some of my weekly spreads of my first ever bullet journal, so far. I hope this gives you some inspiration for your own!
If you have your very own bullet journal, let me know if you recreate any of these spreads in your Instagram stories. Tag me @joannajournals97, as I’d love to see, or leave a comment down below. Let’s get organised!
