Bullet journaling 101: The trend that will keep you super organized

Ever heard of bullet journaling? One of the coolest trends in planning and organization, it’s basically a to-do list, planner and journal *all* in one! You get to let your creativity shine with some awesome templates that you create and completely customize your bullet journal to fit the needs of your life. Keep track of everything from club meetings to parties to school assignments with your bullet journal, and modify it to meet your needs as you go! Here’s how to get started.

First, brainstorm what sort of template you’d like to use. Feel free to be original here! If you’re more of the artsy type, fill your pages up with some super cute hand-lettering and doodles.

If you’d rather spent less time bullet-journaling, go for a more simple template, like this one.

You can organize your bullet journal based on a month-at-a-glance, then a week-at-a-glance, and then add bullet points under individual days to plan ‘em out (include assignments that are due, homework you’ve gotta get done, etc.).

Alternatively, divide your page by goal categories (like school, family, friends) and write down your goals for each facet of your life.

No matter what style you choose, make sure to include some pages that have motivational quotes to keep you going.
