Hello friends! I’m here today to share my first attempt at a monthly bullet journal!
I want to be clear: I’ve bullet journaled for a few years now, but I’ve never really set it up in a monthly format; I mostly just make pretty lists and dailies once in a while.
This month, I used the Tombow dual brush pen in 993, a Pilot .38 gel pen, and some washi tapes from Target. The stickers are from various Etsy shops and Target!
The first spread I made was the ‘traditional’ bullet journal monthly spread. The days of the month are listed along the side and the space next to it is where you put whatever is happening that day. I don’t think I’ll do this spread again; even though I really enjoy the way it looks, I don’t have enough going on in the month to make it worth a page.
I also made a grid monthly spread, which I definitely prefer! Apparently I don’t know how to count, though, because I made way too many squares for the month! I might try to fill it with random statistics from the month, but we’ll see. I’m using this spread as more of an editorial calendar, so all of my blog posts and Instagram posts are laid out for me to use as an at-a-glance.
