For today’s blog post I’m excited to share with you all how I’ve set up my bullet journal for the new year and for the month of January. Before we dive into the blog post, I have to say that this has to be one of my favourite bullet journal setups to date simply because I love the way that it’s turned out. I’m hoping that you will like it as much as I do. For the most part, I’ve made the designs simple which is probably why I love it.
I thought that I would also mention that I decided to utilise the same notebook for my bullet journal, despite it being a new year, simply because I didn’t want to waste the rest of my journal. I was debating for a short while as to whether I should buy myself a new notebook for the new year or not. I eventually decided against it.
Let’s get into my bullet journal set up for the new year/January!
Since I’m starting my 2019 bullet journal in the same notebook, I decided to divide 2018 and 2019 with a simple cover page which says ‘goodbye 2018, hello 2019’. It’s only very simple but and minimalistic, but I like it and it does the job!
Goals for 2019
On the page opposite, I decided to design a page for my goals for 2019. It’s a very simple and basic page, but I’m happy with the way that this page turned out. I like the idea of filling single page with goals that I want to achieve throughout the year whilst alternate between colours!
For the next available double spread, I’ve designed a page for a future log and I’m actually pretty happy with how this page has turned out. For the time being, I’ve only created a future log for the first six months of 2019 with the intention of creating a future log for the next six months at a later date.
I love adding a good quotes page in my bullet journal and I thought that this was fitting for the new year, the quote says ‘and the adventure begins’. Again, this is very simple and minimalistic, but I love it nonetheless. The simpler the better!
Of course, I had to include a cover page for the month of January. For January I wanted to go with a wintery kind of theme as you can see from the photo as it seemed very fitting! It’s a very simple and basic design, but I’m quite happy with how it turned out.
January Monthly Spread
On the next double spread page, I have my monthly spread, of course. As usual, I’m still going to be using this to aid me with planning and scheduling my blog content for the month of January. At the side of my monthly spread, I have also decided to include a ‘to do’ checklist as I’m hoping this will be useful!
As you may already know, this page is a staple in my bullet journal setups. For this month, I decided to switch it up a bit. I don’t always remember to write in my gratitude page each day, so I thought that I would change it so I didn’t feel the need to write in this page each month. I’m hoping this will motivate me more!
January in Pixels
For the new year, I thought about doing a year in pixels spread, but I knew that I would easily forget to fill this in for a while twelve months. Instead, I decided to do each month separately in pixels. I’m quite pleased with how this page turned out!
The pictures don’t do it justice because of the lighting that I was taking them in, but I honestly absolutely love how my set up turned out for the month of January. I hope you liked it too!
