What’s making me happier this week? 5

Guys, remember how I said before that my bullet journal was too pretty for scribbling?


It was all about the cute factor!

Well, I’ve got over that mindset challenge and I now scribble, make budgeting notes, highlight, use different colour pens on the same page, etc. I half-fill pages, I cross off things and I actually (gasp!) use my notebook.

And the fact that I have all the information with me in this little bullet journal makes me a lot happier.

Who else is bullet journalling?

Have you relaxed your standards, or were you realistic about the cute factor from the start? 😉

  1. I honestly never really looked at the posts by other people about the bullet journals so the cute and pretty is not what appealed – rather the practical. I love it btw – and think this is what I will do in future. May just do a post on it

      That’s a good thing but if you want to take a quick peek, click on the #bulletjournal hashtag on Instagram and you’ll see why some people get put off by the perfection and cuteness 🙂

  2. Love colourful pens, even have a multicolour pencil!

    Need to reintroduce some paper into my life!

      Jill, you should have a look around at the cute (but thin) notebooks. It doesn’t feel wasteful at all because you know there’s actually a finish line 🙂

  3. Now I have to go search bullet journals because I’m definitely living in the dark ages…

  4. I have only just started. No cute business for me!
