Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great February. Mine has been pretty busy, and I’m really excited for March!
I always love reading plan with me blog posts, so I thought I would use this post to share my bullet journal setup for March. I’ll be showing you all some spreads from my bullet journal from February and my setup for March. Let’s dive in!
My theme for February was simplify. I had a ton of spreads for January, and it took too long to fill all of them out. I did my best to bring things down a notch and be a little more minimalist with my bullet journal spreads.
February was International Correspondence Month, or InCoWriMo for short. I found out about InCoWriMo through the bullet journaling community, and I’ve had a great time! The idea is that you send a handwritten letter every day of February, and so far, I think I’ve done a pretty good job. If you want to find out more about InCoWriMo, visit the InCoWriMo website—they have a ton of great resources, including a planning calendar and instructions for how to participate. It’s probably too late to start now, as it’s February 25th, but it’s never too early to start planning for next year! 😉
Here are a few of my spreads from last month—you can click the pictures to enlarge them.
Alright, on to March!
Every month, I like to review what worked from the previous month and what didn’t. To learn more about my monthly review, see this post. On the other side, I have my cover page for March. I like to draw these cover pages to serve as dividers between months, and they’re really fun to make. My cover page was inspired by this image on Pinterest, but I wasn’t able to find anyone to credit for it. If you know who made the original, please let me know so I can credit them!
I decided to go with a leafy theme for my spreads this month, and I have to say, I feel really good about how they turned out! I liked the calendar-style monthly layout I used last month, but I wanted to do a more traditional layout on the first page so I would have a full page for other things. The goals and tasks for the month are pretty self-explanatory. As I explained earlier, I like to have a little space every month for each week since I don’t use weekly spreads. The highlights section is something new that I’m trying out this month: as the month progresses, I’ll fill it out with highlights and memories. Then, I’ll be able to look back at all of the good things that happened in March!
Both my one line a day and my habit tracker are inspired by Kara from Boho Berry. Kara’s bullet journal is amazing—she is definitely one of my main inspirations. I’ve never done a one line a day before, but it seems like a nice, quick way to journal a bit about what happens each day. It’s also the first time I’m trying out a self care tracker. Every day, I’ll rate each of the four categories (mood, activity, sleep, and productivity) on a scale of 1 to 10 and place color-coded dots accordingly.
I did my first mood mandala last month, and I absolutely love how it’s coming along, so I decided to do one again this month. The mood mandala idea comes from @bujo.mama on Instagram. I was too lazy to draw out circles, so I printed out the mood mandala template from Boho Berry’s tribe resource library. You can access it by subscribing to her email list.
