Guest Post: Bullet Journal Spreads You Can’t Live Without

Hey everyone!!

I’m super excited to be collabing with Charley on this bullet journal blog post: we’ve wanted to do this for so long and am just now getting around to it (#thankscorona). As the title may suggest, we are both doing each of our bullet journal spreads that we can’t live without. I’ll share mine here on Charley’s blog, and she’ll share hers on mine, so be sure to come check it out here!

I’ve been bullet journaling for four years now, and have used lots of spreads with differing uses and styles. Some I’ve found are more helpful than others, and so today I’m here to share the bullet journal spreads I can’t live without! Grab yourself a whipped coffee, because I’ve been OBSESSED with them recently (and you can see mine featured in all these photos 😂)

Yearly Goals

To start off, we have my yearly goals list. Every year, I set some goals for the upcoming year, and the best way to keep track of them, I’ve found, is to write them in my bullet journal so that I don’t forget! Every month, when I set up my new monthly spreads, I refer back to these spreads to see how I can be making progress towards them that month.

Grid Spacing Chart

I got the idea for this spread from AmandaRachLee, and ever since then, this spread has been a LIFESAVER. Basically, this spread makes it super easy to figure out how many spaces horizontally and vertically you have. If you don’t already have one, I highly recommend putting one in your bullet journal!

Photo a Day Tracker

I started using this tracker last year, and I enjoyed it so much that I decided to do it again this year! I try to take a photo every day of the year, and it gives me such a cool look back on what I did every day of the year! This spread doesn’t actually reflect the photos taken, but having this tracker in place makes it that much easier to keep track!

Books to Read

I always have a huge list of books I want to read, and this spread makes it a lot easier to keep track of the books I want to read! It’s super simple but super cute, and it makes my life so much easier!

Monthly Habit Charts

These habit charts are almost like daily routines: I have my morning routine, daily routine, and nightly routine all on this chart. Having everything written out makes it so much simpler for me to keep track, and keeps me from forgetting anything!

Weekly To-Do Lists

And of course, the weekly to-do lists, my second brain, which save my life several times this week! I’ve tried out all sorts of weekly spreads, from super fancy and with a ton of functions, to really simple and literally being just a list of things to do. Here are two of my favorite weekly spreads that I’ve done.

Those are all the spreads that are invaluable to me in my day-to-day life. Thanks Charley for letting me post on your blog! And make sure to come over to my blog to see what Charley’s favorite bullet journal spreads are!

Let’s talk. Which spread from this list is your favorite? What do you use your bullet journal for? Have you tried whipped coffee yet?? Leave a comment and let me know!
