Bullet journal in review: August

What gets a thumbs up, and what doesn’t — in my collection of bullet journal layouts?

August was a weird month. It felt like there was a lot to do, but much of it was all in the same vein so I didn’t really have much to keep track of. At work, I was busy responding to wildfire-involved situations which meant almost every day I was writing “wildfire watch” in my bullet journal — because the situation is so fluid, you really don’t know what to expect until you find yourself in that very day. Sometimes things changes so quickly, I didn’t have time to write it all down in my bujo. Thank goodness I keep a list of work tasks I need to get done in a separate spot so I can jot it all down right away. But that’s just the way life works once in a while: you plan for your bullet journal to be the centre of your writing universe…and then it doesn’t happen.

First of all, this has to be one of my favourite cover pages. Simple, clean, some stickers — couldn’t be happier. I also loved the ‘at a glance’ page. This was cleaner to look at. I’ve actually set up the same kind of thing for September.

Once again, my decor was supplemented by Paperkumaco, along with a variety of washi tape. I also used a couple of post-it-notes to highlight key tasks to get done.

While I was overall pretty happy with my spreads, the set-ups felt a little claustrophobic. Instead of putting one week on one page, I’m going to set up one week over two pages moving forward.

I’m excited to share my September layouts with you. What did you do for August? Comment down below!
