I’m currently in the process of planning out my bullet journal for 2018. I’m looking forward to starting with a fresh notebook on January 1st, and I plan on having the first few months set up and ready to go in advance.
This year, in my current bullet journal, I have chopped and changed between using weekly layouts or just opting for dailies as and when I needed them – mainly on those weeks where I knew I was going to be very busy with work.
And while I have really loved using dailies this year, when I did so I found myself occasionally missing my weekly layout too. I know, I know, I could have used both together but hey if I did that then it wouldn’t have given me the inspiration for this paragraph. 😉
Next year though I have decided that I will use weekly spreads as standard, and dailies too when needed. I like the versatility of weekly spreads. There is so much you can incorporate into a weekly spread, such as habit trackers, should you wish to that is.
I’ve been looking for inspiration from Instagram and Pinterest and have put together a snapshot of some of some of my favourite weekly layouts. From calm, minimalist spreads through to the most glorious and ornately designed layouts – there are so many different styles that inspire. Every time I log into Instagram I know that I will be mesmerised, and filled with awe, at the images that so many talented bullet journalers choose to share. Here are 6 of my favourites:
The sense of calm that washed over me when I saw Rita’s gorgeous weekly layout was like ahhhhhhh. Simple and efficient. And beautiful. Oh, so beautiful.
How pretty is Rhean’s weekly layout? Very pretty is the answer you are looking for.
Pretty! I really love how Liz uses one page for her daily todo’s and meal plan and then has her weekly goals on the other page.
Nicole’s weekly is #goals. It probably has everything I want from a weekly, and she fits it all onto one page without it looking cluttered or jumbled in any way.
Claire’s weekly spread is perfection. Simple, elegant and precise.
And my final choice for the moment. How fun, and beautiful, is Sara’s weekly spread? I love it!
All of the designs above are, I feel, relatively minimalist in their function (even Sara’s stunning riot of colour!). With the exception of Nicole’s spread which incorporates a couple of small trackers too, most of the weekly’s have just one or two functions – todo list / meal planner / goals.
It’s this type of weekly that I’m currently veering towards for next years bullet journal. Something simple. Something calm. And if my weekly layout is even just a teenth as pretty to look at as the ones I’ve shared today then I will be very happy indeed.
I just want to say a big thank you to Rita, Rhean, Liz, Nicole, Claire, and Sara for letting me use their images for this post.
