More than a week has passed since I published my first post about bullet journaling. And I have to say: I am completely overwhelmed by the attention this post got! So, a big thank you is in order. And of course, a welcome to my new visitors! Anyway, time for some new minimalist bullet journal madness! Last time I showed you my monthly – and today I’m happy to share my new weekly setup + my personal bullet journal benefits.

Let’s set the mood with my bujo benefits

Ever since I started bullet journaling I have spread the word about this wonderful practice. Colleagues, friends, family and even Petersky (my significant other) have been exposed to the thing that I (affectionately) call ‘the bujo disease’. So, if it hasn’t crossed your mind yet: start a bullet journal. And I mean this instant. Rush to the store, get yourself a fancy (preferably dot grid) notebook and be awesome and productive. Still not convinced? Let me share some of the best objectives for starting a minimalist bullet journal.

  1. You can finally control your urge to buy new notebooks – because this notebook will be the best place to collect all your lists, appointments and tasks
  2. Your bullet journal is a great way to keep track of your goals. Some examples: weight loss/health trackers, learning a new language and even goals for your blog/business
  3. It just looks super fancy to have an organizer on your desk that was completely created by yourself
  4. Speaking of which: you can customize each layout to your own preferences – so this notebook is almost an extension of your personality! (Please tell me when I start sounding crazy)
  5. And of course: your bullet journal is like a paper motivator to finish tasks and be more productive!

Oh, and get rid of people who are anti-bujo. You simply do not need that kind of negativity in your life.

I promised you a minimalist bullet journal weekly..

Minimalist Bullet Journal Weekly

As you might expect from a minimalist bujo lover: my weekly setup is very simple. The only thing I love to be creative with is handlettering and the leaf decorations around the daily entries. These are the things I add to my weekly spreads:

  • Of course, each and every day of the week  – except for the weekend, where I combine Saturday and Sunday
  • A short daily timeline – to have quick glance at my appointments for the day. The dotted line symbolizes the hours that I’m working or the moments that I’m not available
  • Every day I trackt my mood and the food that I’m eating – because food has always had a strong effect on my mental health
  • The available space I use for daily tasks and things that pop into my head during the day

I hope you like my minimalist bullet journal weekly! And of course: drop a comment if you have any questions or suggestions.
