My April Bullet Journal Layout

Hey friends! As you know I’ve been using the bullet journal system for the past few months and I wanted to show you how I’ve pared things down and what’s been working for me. I’m currently using my Emerald A5 Leuchtturm1917 (affiliate link) for my personal bullet journal and the Azure-Blue Leuchtturm1917 Master Slim notebook as my blogging & business bullet journal.

March was full of experimenting, I tried to skip the monthly layout and use a weekly format but I quickly realized that I was neglecting my dailies and the weekly layout was a total mess. So for April, it’s back to the monthly spread and my dailies!

I made some adjustments to my original monthly spread and I think it’s going to work out great! Instead of separating the days into AM and PM I’m using the original monthly log from Ryder Carroll’s Bullet Journal system except, I separated the weeks with a line and added some color coding.

The facing page has a place for me to record monthly goals, notes and a to buy list. I normally would have a to-do list in the blank section but I moved that to the next page. I’m thinking that I will switch the small notes section to the large blank area and use the small section for a May calendar but I’m not sure. I will post a new picture when I make the changes so be sure to follow me on Instagram.

With such a small space for a to-do list in my monthly spread I quickly found that I needed much more room, that’s when I decided to keep this separate. I always have a running list of things to do and new ideas to try and not having a dedicated space to record those things, there were still post-it notes everywhere and I was not accomplishing everything I needed/wanted to.

Now, each night when I’m planning for the next day, I look back at my to-do list, see what’s the most important and add that to my daily spread. I love how this is working for me and I think it will be a permanent fixture in my monthly layouts from now on.

The next two pages are for my monthly challenges. You can get this great printable for the Plan With Me Challenge over at Boho Berry. The daily prompts for the Rock Your Handwriting Challenge were just released today and I will write them in later this evening. I haven’t really been keeping up with either of these challenges but I’m going to try again and see how it goes.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope I’ve been able to spark a little creativity for you!
