11 Bullet Journal Hacks for Beginners
11. Color Code your Bullet Journal:
The color coding system can be used for different life categories.
9. Use dutch doors (Life-saver!)
You have set up a beautiful spread and you didn’t give yourself enough space to write what you wanted to write.
Next spreads are already filled with other information and categories.
Creating Dutch doors for yourself is the solution in my opinion, so you do not have to guess how many pages to leave blank.
8. DIY a pen holder for your Journal:
I love to take a cup of coffee in the morning, open my journal and start writing my plans for the day ahead.
More times than I like to admit, I have to stand up and look for the pen. And it can not be any pen, it has to be my favorite! ( I am a picky person.)
If that is you, this is a lifesaver. Create your own pen holder on the journal.
You can thank me later!
6. Glue in an envelope:
Do you need to not lose some important papers, receipts and make sure your journal looks clean and organized?
Take a simple envelope and glue it in.
If your notebook does not have that option already, it is a 30-second DIY that will help to improve your experience as a Bullet Journaler.
3. Use stickers if you are nor artistic or just busy:
If you are reading this article, that means that you might still be struggling with the Bullet Journal set up.
I have bought this ebook, saved myself so much time and since my life is in order and very organised, I can focus on things that are actually important, not feeling bad that how disorganised my life is.
