Pen to Paper: April Bullet Journal

Last month I had posted about my Bullet Journal and it seems to have appealed to some of you, so I thought I would share my monthly set ups with you.  I wasn't as great about using my bullet journal last month as I usually do, so I started out this month the same but I think it is time to change up at least my weekly layout in the future.

Anyway here is my April Bullet Journal set up. . .
Cover Page: I think I need to use a bolder color for the month but I like it.

April's Calendar, I am super happy with the simple designs I added.

My Book blog and reading tracker page.

My habit tracker page where I track my stress levels, spending, exercise and monthly master task list.

My weekly layout: mini calendar, appointments, weekly tasks, reading tracker, coming up, daily tasks and water trackers for each day.  I do like how this layout has everything that I need on one page and clearly laid out but I have become bored with this set up.

And just because it is fun to see, here is my ratings and page counts for the year so far including March.  Each month has its own color (Jan. is blue, Feb. is pink & March is orange).

I am really happy I found this planning system but I do need to use it more and I need to set up some brain dump and idea pages and use them more effectively.  

Do you have a bullet journal? How do you plan your life? I would love to see your ideas too!


  1. I have a Passion Planner, and I love it. I thought about a bullet journal, but I don't want to have to draw EVERYTHING!

    1. I have heard a lot of people love the Passion Planner. I was worried about having to draw everything every month but so far it has been fairly okay. I start about a week before the end of the month setting up the following month. If I don't have time then I just don't add all the extras and go with a very simple calendar layout.
