MY 2017 SET UP:
My current set up has three notebooks in (it will have four when I order my Monthly Overview notebook soon); A blank notebook that I cut down from A5 (for my main planning), a blank grid book from Travelers Times, that I have been using for bullet journaling/list making and a watercolour notebook for a bit of crafting. I still have last years Lyradori for my main art journal and smash book as this is a little bigger (extra wide/cahier size). I have also started using a Blog Planner, but there will be more on that in a post next week.
As part of the BUJO/Bullet Journal planning and my personal goal setting, I have used a key which I have adapted from some several bullet journalers so that it fits in with my own planning. I have used the coloured codes at the bottom as part of a daily tracker and added these to my tracker boxes each day - which I have cut down from my free Tracker Printable Boxes. You can see the trackers in action in the photo below and they can be adapted each week with whatever it is you want to track. I am liking this current set up, as I can still be creative with stickers, but add the bullet style to it and play around with layouts. I have also used my Freebie printable headers that you can download and print here. At the weekend I will be drawing the layout as a vertical one - my first attempt at them ever, watch out for that in my next post and a plan with me to go with it.
In addition to the main planner I am also using my bullet journal notebook (the grid one) to track different things throughout the year. I already use it to show what I have been up to that month or year and will be using it to track my fruit intake... it's not going well so far, hahaha.
I hope you are now feeling inspired to get planning and to get creative with your planning. I'd love to hear about your set up especially if you have just started or are considering going 'BUJO' or drawing out your own planner layouts from scratch.
