Bullet Journalling... the notebook

In my last post (you can read it here... it opens in a new window) I said that I was going to try out a modified form of bullet journalling as a way to try and keep track of long-term goals and plans. I finished the post saying I now just needed to choose a notebook for this.

It probably won't come as any great surprise to those who know me, that I've gone for an A5 Leuchtturm notebook. There are a number of reasons:
  1. I have a few of them in the stationery emporium, waiting to be used
  2. They have space for an index at the front, ready made
  3. The pages are numbered already
  4. There is a space for filling in the date on each page (though I may not always use it for that, but for indicating the topic instead)
  5. They are fairly fountain pen friendly (though there is always some ghosting/show through)

I've not done much with it yet, as I am about to go on holiday (before the madness of the book launch starts...), other than label up the life-areas and fill in the index for the pages used so far. I'm going to take it away on holiday with me and fill in some of it there.

Pictures when I come back!

  1. I had trouble choosing a notebook for my bullet journal too, because most of mine are lined! I wanted a grid paper one, but alas, I don't have any of those! My next choice was plain paper, and I managed to scavenge up a spiral one that I bought for 75c at an op shop, just in case I give up bullet journalling and go back to ring binders. So honey I feel your pain! :)
