Happy October everyone!
I’m wishing you all an amazing month full of planning and organisation 😉 I love it when a new month starts, because it gives me the chance to re-focus and start new! October also starts on a Monday, and this is perfect for us bullet journalists! New month, new week and everything fits on the pages like a dream ☺️
As always I like to plan my weeklies for the month in advance. That way I can plan everything properly and make sure that all my appointments and tasks are scheduled. For October the theme is 'Laundry' and you can see how I've setup my bullet journal for the month in this post, or you can watch the video here. For October I had to create 4 weekly layouts.
For the first weekly layout I chose to use again the dutch door system.
I used this layout last month as well and I loved it! So, I thought to use it again for October. I added 2 sections for my meals and my shopping on one side of the middle page, instead of my tracker. As you might have guessed it, the tracker didn’t work again so I’ve given up!!! 😬 I find that when I use any type of tracker I get stressed and upset with myself if I don’t do the things that I’m tracking or if I forget to fill in the tracker. Therefore, no more trackers for me - at least for now…
On the other side I added the sections for this and next week’s notes, as I always do. I find this type of layout really functional and I love the way it turned out!
For the second weekly, I used again the horizontal layout I saw from @organisedhustler . This is one of very few horizontal layouts that I really like to use, and the reason for that is that little line in the middle of the each day. It helps me to create 2 different to-do lists and separate my personal and work tasks! Love it!
The 3rd weekly spread is my most favourite of the month! I love the space, the functionality, the fact that I have room to decorate it the way I want… everything! I got inspired by the lovely @sheylara_shen ☺️ If you don’t know who she is, then you must go and check her out! I love her pages and her doodles! 😍
For the last weekly spread of the month I chose a layout that I use almost every month! I like the simplicity of it, plus the pastel colours and the doodles make it look so cute! The only thing that bothers me is that wobbly line…. 😬😫 I’ve decided for some time now not to use a ruler for my bullet journal and to embrace mistakes and wobbly lines. However, that line between Thursday and Friday is way more wobbly than I can handle, and I was ready to erase it and redo it. But, I decided to keep it and to be reminded that it’s ok not to have absolutely perfect pages. 😉 So, the line stays!
So, these are the 4 weekly layouts for October. I hope you liked this post and that you found some inspiration for your own weekly layouts. If you liked the theme and you'd like to recreate it, please send me some pictures. I'd love to see your pages!! You can always contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
