Last week, I did a deep dive into future logs. I was going to continue with monthly spreads, but something came up this week and I want to blog about it.

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.

Bullet Journal: Weekly Plan September 18-24 2017

September 17, 2017 Leave a comment

Every Sunday morning, I sit down with my ARC junior, writing instruments and a ruler to create my weekly spread. This is where I live. I stopped doing daily logs a couple months ago when I realized I was wasting space.

Note, this is just me. Everyone is different with different needs. Neither my job or my home life is that intense. I’m a part-time receptionist, and I have a wonderful husband with no kids. But I am autistic and this system is a big help with executive function and memory.

Yom Tov Planning in the Bullet Journal

September 14, 2017 Leave a comment

The Jewish holiday season starts in a week. That means long hours in synagogue, building and decorating sukkot, buying lulav and etrog sets, and lots of cooking and eating. And this year, that last takes extra planning because all those 2 day holidays run into Shabbat, making them 3 days long with extra cooking restrictions. But there still must be guests.

So, I opened my discbound bujo and started.
