With the school year quickly approaching, many students are looking for a way to keep assignments and deadlines organized. Since many classes are going to be online this year, it is more important than ever to be self-sufficient and stay on top of your schedule. School can also be stressful at times, so a creative outlet that also keeps you organized is the perfect solution. Bullet journaling has gained massive popularity in recent years and can be done with only one notebook and a few pens. This type of journaling, created by Ryder Carroll, involves writing down to-do lists, reminders, calendars, and schedules. These bullet journal spreads are so customizable and allow each person to show their personality through themes and color schemes. Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind if you’re getting started!
- Use affordable supplies to create spreads
When many people think of bullet journaling, expensive markers and journals immediately come to mind. While many journaling YouTubers recommend calligraphy markers and fine-tip pens that cost quite a bit of money, it does not require that much money! Bullet journal spreads can turn out just as nice if you use pens and markers you have at home. At Five Below and Dollar Tree, you can purchase notebooks, pencils, markers, pens, and washi tape for anywhere between $1-$5. As you begin to become more invested in journaling, you can purchase higher-quality supplies, but you definitely don’t need to spend extra money. Some of my personal favorite affordable school supply brands are Crayola, CraZart, and PaperMate.
