I’m constantly looking for new bullet journal ideas to try.
I’ve found that bullet journaling is my life savior when it comes to planning and staying organized. It helps you to be prepared for everything in advance.
There are so many different pages and spreads you can add to your bujo, so I’ve decided to select some of the best ones for the upcoming month of February.
Here you’ll find all kinds of bullet journal ideas: weekly setups, mood trackers, habit trackers, and even a Netflix spread.
If you’re an organization nerd like me, you probably already have a bullet journal. And if you don’t, you should definitely start one right now! Here are some tips on how to do it:
Bullet Journal Tools
Turns out starting a bullet journal is way easier than what you expect.
Before starting my own bullet journal, I spent several months scrolling through bullet journal Instagram accounts telling me that I needed a $30 journal and a $50 worth pack of markers if I wanted to start a bullet journal. But you can actually do the same for a lot less!
If you’re just starting out on your BuJo journey, you don’t need to spend hundreds of money on professional tools as a lot of established bullet journals recommend you. Instead, I got more affordable options that do exactly the same:
WHAT I USE
Journal – I use this bullet journal I got for a really inexpensive price on Amazon. The pages are dotted, which makes it easier to draw straight lines and perfect squares. It has been designed exclusively for bullet journaling as you can see on the front cover. On the first page, it has a blank space led by “This bullet journal belongs to” that you can fill in with your name. I think this is so cool because it reminds me of the old vintage journals.
Pens – I use the Pigma Micron black finalizers for writing in titles and lines. These are a bit more expensive than usual, but you can get a pack of 6 for a really good price on Amazon. Each one has a different size, so you can do everything with them and you won’t need to purchase any other pens. When bullet journaling, pens are probably the thing that you’re going to use the most, so investing in good ones from the beginning is a great idea.
Markers – I personally prefer minimalist bullet journals with clean spreads, so I’m not a big fan of markers. However, I add small touches of color here and there and I do it with my favorite pastel markers. If you like decorating your bullet journal with a lot of colors I highly recommend investing in a pack of good quality markers.
Gold pen – on special occasions I’ll use this metallic gold pen. I only have one so I don’t really want to waste it writing everything in gold ink. It looks beautiful when combined with the Pigma Micron pens! This is definitely a good investment and I wouldn’t change it for anything.
Washi tape & stickers – I use washi tape to fill blank spaces where I don’t know what to write or draw and as an underlay for text. I also use mini sticker stars to mark the most important things about my daily to-do lists.
20 Bullet Journal Ideas For February
Money Savings Chart
Yes, you can also use your bullet journal to track your expenses and savings! The best thing about bullet journaling is you get to have it all in one place, so add as many different pages as you wish. This is a really good idea if you normally are bad at tracking your money.
Books To Read
Whether you have set a book goal or you’re a book worm by nature, you’ll love this «books to read» layout.
15 Minute Tasks
A good way to get motivated to do your tasks is by blocking time. Set 15 minutes for each task you need to do and you’ll feel more productive!
Choosing a cute weekly spread is so hard but also really fun. I could spend hours and hours on Pinterest just looking for weekly spread inspiration.
Keeping track of your cleaning routine can be a bit hard sometimes. Setting a cleaning schedule according to your preferences and needs will make everything faster.
It’s always nice to include a wishlist in your bullet journal. It can be a wishlist with things you want to accomplish or simple things you need to buy.
Habit trackers are my favorite bullet journal ideas. They help me to stay on top of my to-do lists and motivate myself to do more.
No Spend Rules
I’ve been trying to cut down my expenses since I want to shop more consciously. When you’ve been raised in a society based on consumption, this can be difficult. This is why I like to include a bullet journal spread with my “no spend rules”.
Working out is extremely rewarding, especially when you’re not feeling like it. To make sure I workout even when I’m not feeling motivated, I always include a workout tracker in my bullet journal.
This is my favorite tracker! My goal is to watch at least 10 movies per month, and this tracker is a huge motivation. Also, who doesn’t love Netflix, right?
Cross Habit Tracker
Another cute habit tracker you can try on your bullet journal!
Monthly Setup Preview
On the second page of each month, I’ll always add a monthly setup preview, to see what the month ahead is going to look like.
What Makes Me Happy Page
You can use your bullet journal for everything! You can write down what makes you happy and what you’re grateful for.
Circles and Marker Chart Habit Tracker
Habit trackers come in so many shapes and sizes, so you can vary each month and keep trying something new.
This is a great tracker to combine with the “no spend rules” page.
It’s always nice to add a pop of color to your bujo with some doodles. If you want to practice your drawing skills, I highly recommend trying these plant doodles.
Playlist Bujo Spread
Movies and music are life. Keep adding your favorite songs of each month to your bullet journal and by the end of the year, you’ll have a cool playlist with your favorite songs.
Polaroid Mood Wall
If you like vintage themes, this Polaroid mood wall is perfect for you!
Habits and Anxiety Tracker
This tracker is really helpful because it allows you to track your anxiety as well. It’s especially important to track how you are feeling in order to find a solution.
Self-care is so important, so make sure you add this spread to your bullet journal as a reminder to do something that makes you happy every day.
This is especially important in January’s spread. You can write your goals for the upcoming month, but also for the new year.
If you’re not really into long-term goals, you can write down a few short-term goals for the week or month that you know you’ll be able to accomplish.
