How (& Why!) to Use a Bullet Journal

Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll have heard that normal notebooks are totally out. Don't even think about picking up pen and paper and writing notes in the way you, your mum, you're mum's mum and her mum before her have been doing for years. 

Because this year you need to get serious about your to-do list. Actually, you should've been doing that last year to be honest....maybe even the year before that. We might already have missed the cutting edge to-do list boat.

ANYWAY. I am NOT one for having a word of the year. And I don't journal, gratitude or otherwise, so you can take it from the depths of my cynical core that this journal is LIFE. It works, it's amazing and I can't live without it.

What is a Bullet Journal?

It's a book of blank pages you can fill with joy. And that's where the platitudes end and practicalities commence.

Because, in truth, the whole ethos of the Bullet Journal is practicality. It's about ease of use, and being able to quickly log what you need to do and be able to prioritise it too. 

Although a lot is made of the complex 'coding' used if you use your journal in a classic way, I honestly think it's crazy simple. And that's coming from moi -- who regularly leaves the house without nappies. NAPPIES. (For my baby, not me......)

Let's get into the nitty gritty then shall we? I made you a video for this because it's much easier (and less dull) than writing it all out for you. Even though I'm an incredibly skilled writer who'd make the monotonous task of telling you how to write a to-do list seem like a sonnet. Obvs.
