Bullet Journal Ideas

Bullet Journal Ideas

It’s no secret that I’m a legit planner addict (and planner maker, HOLLA!). My newest planning obsession is bullet journaling. The funny thing is, I’ve really always “bullet journaled” – it just didn’t have a name back when I was a kid (or if it did, I didn’t know it), and until recently, I used regular, lined paper journals instead of official bullet journals with graph paper. 

Bullet Journal Ideas

With my current bullet journaling set up, I feel newly inspired to journal, create, and make something awesome. When I am stuck on a work project or trying to settle a busy brain before bed, I work in my bullet journal. I find that directing all of my energy into creating a new page really helps settle my brain…kind of like coloring does for lots of people (I like to color too, but not as much as I like to create something altogether new). Sometimes, though, I get stuck. So I put together a list of more than 65 bullet journal ideas to help get unstuck…rather than sit around and complain that I can’t think of anything to journal about, I just pull from this list and get after it.

Many of these prompts are suitable for kids, too – but if you’re looking specifically for some ideas for kids, check out this Bullet Journaling Prompts for Kids post!

Be sure to check out the extra resources at the bottom of this post, as well as my very favorite bullet journal (that I just so happen to make!).
