I am so excited to get started with the January 2020 bullet journal set up. It is a new year , new month, and a new journal! This year I decided to follow Shayda Campbell tutorials on YouTube. I highly suggest you go check out her January 2020 bullet journal set up video. She sets up each month with that month’s flower; January is the month of carnations. I have taken inspiration from Shayda but have changed and added spreads to suit my needs. That is the great thing about bullet journals – they are so versatile!
This is my January cover page featuring the carnation and a quote. I also include a quote “Who you are tomorrow begins with what you do today.” I thought it was fitting for the start of a new year. Next is my monthly calendar. I love having this spread nice and big so I can add in all my events and important dates. I, of course, reference my future log when filling out this spread.
These next two spreads are some of my monthly trackers. The first one is my expense tracker where I record my expenses for the year. Once the month is complete I will record in the my expense tracking section in the beginning of my bullet journal. In past months I just had an open page where I would list every purchase. However, this month I decided to do something a little different – I sectioned the spread off into the categories I like to track.
My next spread is my habit tracker and my brain dump page. The habit tracker is great for keeping track of whatever you need. I plan on keeping track of when I floss (I am trying to remember to do it every day and the tracker is a good motivator) and also simple things like when I water my plants. The brain dump is just that – a place where I can write down whatever is on my brain. Sometimes it helps to just get it down on paper.
The final spread I have is my weekly lay out. I have decided to give this version a try this year. In past years I gave each day a lot of space and wrote a to do list on each day. So this month I am going to try having a smaller section to record events for each day with a larger section for a running to do list for the week. I also include a section for a shopping list and a tracker for my posting.
So what do you think of this bullet journal set up for January 2020? Let me know in the comments below and check out my post on my bullet journal set up.
