Plan with Me | Bullet Journal Setup for December 2020

Happy December everyone! My Spotify Wrapped has just arrived. (Yes, the Glee cast was my top artist of the year yet again.) I am deep in online holiday gift shopping. My classmates are counting down the weeks until the glorious period known as winter break.

In other words, 2020 is coming to a close, and with the last month of a year comes one final bullet journal setup.

On a whim, I came up with this kinda chill, purple-y, nighttime theme, eschewing the traditional holiday-themed spreads that I’ve done a few times at this point. (Nothing against those themes—I was just looking to do something I haven’t done before.) I’m not sure what to name this theme exactly, but I hope you enjoy looking at these spreads as much as I enjoyed making them!

My cover page for December:

I carried the color scheme into my monthly spread, which has a newly-formatted goals section that I’m fairly excited to test out, despite its simplicity. The idea is that I’ll put general goals at the top, and more actionable weekly goals in the rows below.

I was very happy with the condensed tracking spread I used last month, so I decided to recreate it pretty much exactly how I originally conceived it. I’ve been especially enjoying making a little graph in the mood tracker section.

On the other side of the dutch door, highlights for each day and a sleep tracker:

For my last spread, I was inspired by @bookstaandbujo on Instagram. Throughout the month, I’ll use these two pages to keep track of things I’m enjoying, and at the end, I’ll tape in some related photos. I actually made one of these for November already, but it wasn’t in my Plan with Me post because I only started it mid-month.

  1. Hi Annie! A bit late here but I absolutely love your set up. It hits the perfect balance between minimal and decorated. I’ve just started in a new Leuchtturm1917 and am hoping to be consistent in bullet journalling this year.

  4. I’m thinking of trying to go with a bujo for 2021, wish me luck! Since I’m a newbie, and not really artistic anyway, it’ll probably be very minimalist, but I love looking at blogs like yours to inspire me to actually make one anyway. Thanks for sharing!
