Bullet Journal: You’re So Organized!

November 13, 2017 Leave a comment

That’s the other thing other people tell me when they see my bujo. I can see why, but I seriously am not. At least not on my own.

Bullet Journal: Eye of the Beholder

November 5, 2017 8 comments

I take my bujo to work with me. I think this is part of the key of it working for me, even if there are days when it sits in its bag (a Little Prince tote I got for the purpose) under my desk until I go home. Most of the time I need it, and it sits next to the postage meter on the weekly or shopping list page.

And coworkers come by and tell me how pretty it is, and how organized I am.

It’s not and I’m not.

Bullet Journal: Habits and their Tracks

October 30, 2017 Leave a comment

One of the most popular additions to a bulletjournal is a habit tracker.  While I don’t advise using one for a couple of months, I have found mine to be very useful, although possibly not in the way others intend. (This is fine, by the way. We all do things differently.) Read more…

Bullet Journal: Post Holiday

October 15, 2017 Leave a comment

I don’t think I’ll do many pictures. My layouts are basically the same.

This was the first time I really planned out the holidays, from brainstorming meals to when to cook what. This was also the smoothest they ever went, with fewer leftovers.

Bullet Journal: Holiday Planning

October 8, 2017 Leave a comment

This is the Jewish holiday season. The month of Tishrei, approximately September/October, has several weeks of Biblically mandated major holidays. They’re all two days long outside of Israel, except for Yom Kippur (no one should fast for two days) and this year, they’re all Thursday-Friday, which means we have shortened weeks to prepare for three days of work and cooking restrictions.

This means organization. It means menus, cooking schedules and shopping lists, plus guest reminders. And the bullet journal handles all of these.

Bullet Journal: Sunday and October Planning

September 24, 2017 Leave a comment

It’s Sunday, so I’m planning. It’s also the Sunday after a 3-day holiday, which affects other things.

For example, it’s hard to journal when you’re not permitted to write. So, no journaling. That prohibition also makes to-do lists hard. On the other hand, I didn’t have much to plan. Go to shul. Eat. Read. Nap. Eat.
