Bullet Journal Spreads I Actually Kept Up With

Bullet Journal Spreads I Actually Kept Up With

Just a little background on my experience with using a Bullet Journal. I began using a Bullet Journal in May of 2017. What attracted me to using a Bullet Journal is that it allowed me to be more creative with my planning compared to the planner that I had been using. WARNING WARNING!!! I do not use a Bullet Journal as a daily planner. I use it more as a place to put my ideas down on paper, to do lists, shopping lists, and trackers. I also use it as a place to doodle and practice my hand lettering. The following are the spreads that I was able to maintain and continued to use month after month. Just a disclaimer, at the end of May 2018, I will be switching over to planning on my iPad. 


I used my index as a page tracker. This is something that I continue to update each time I add a new page. I found this be very functional when it came to finding the page I was looking for. 

Movies to Watch

This spread is one of my favorite. I found this spread to be a great place to keep track of the movies that I wanted to see and loved coloring the movie reel in the colors of the rainbow.
I got inspiration for this page from and

Series Tacker

This is one of my favorite spreads. In this spread I track Netflix and TV series. Not only have I kept up with this tracker over the past 7 months, but I have ended up having to add a second spread to my journal due to filling up the first page. Just a tip, I use sticky notes on this page as a reminder for when the series start back up for the next season. 
These two posts were the inspiration behind my series tracker.

Mood Tracker

Another spread that I have managed to continue to update through the past 7 months is my daily mood tracker. If I am being honest I would not have been so successful with this spread if I did not have a reminder on my phone telling me to track my mood. Since coming to college I have made it a part of my morning routine to  update this spread. Over these past 7 months of using a Bullet Journal I have experimented with a variety of different trackers and ended up with creating my own that fit the notebook that I was using and was easy for me to maintain. 
This is the key that I follow for the different colors.

Monthly Playlist

Since August I have been making a monthly playlist of the different songs or albums that I listen to most that month on Spotify. 

100 Miles

A tracker that I started in October was a 100 box tracker that I use to track the number of miles I ran each time I went to the gym. Each running session is filled in with a different color. I took inspiration for this tracker from

Reasonable Dorm Room Cleaning Schedule

Reasonable Dorm Room Cleaning Schedule After my first semester of college I have developed a cleaning routine that I have been able to keep up with. You can read my previous blog post about What I Learned In My First Semester of College . Over the past few months I have experimented and I am confident in the routine that I have created.  Personalize When it comes to personalizing the schedule you could add or take out the different chores. For example I also wash my retainers weekly and monthly my roommate and I decorate the marker board on the outside of our door. We also only clean our mirrors when needed since we have found that they do not seem to become too dirty regularly. Something that I would make sure you sanitize every week would be the surfaces that you are constantly touching. That means light switches, door handles, and your desk. By doing this I managed to avoid getting sick when my roommate and other floor mates go sick. Another task that you could add to y

Bullet Journal Fitness and Workout Spread Ideas

If you want to purchase some of these spreads you can buy the digital bundle from my Etsy shop: Simply Paperless .  I had created six different bullet journal fitness and workout trackers/spreads. These spreads were made in my digital bullet journal using the GoodNotes App.   I highly recommend to use a stylus when using GoodNotes as a digital bullet journal. For this project I used the Adonit Dash 3 Stylus , which I highly recommend. I also recommend the Bargain Depot Stylus 2 Pack  from Amazon. Daily Workout Plan This first spread can be used to plan out what exercises you plan to workout each day of the week. I would recommend this spread for those who are just starting to workout. I did not created the workout that is used as the example for the content of this spread. The workout is from Pintrest Workout Plan .  Workout Tracker This next tracker is in the format of a monthly calendar. In order to track the different workouts accomplished throughout

Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus Book Review

Reasons For Reading This Book: Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus was Jackie's choice for the month of October. Jackie is the host of The Readheads Podcast Book Club. This is a monthly podcast book club that I have been apart of since it was established in 2020. I love getting to hear the thoughts of the hosts each month.  Content of the Book: Elizabeth Zott is a chemist but is much more than meets the eye. She is not only beautiful but also extremely smart, confident, strong, and not afraid to beat to her own drum. Elizabeth is one of the only female chemists working at Hastings Research Institute. She is viewed as different by everyone there. It's there that she meet Nobel-Prize nominated chemist Calvin Evans. Calvin who falls in love with Elizabeth is described as a loner, grudge holder, and extremely brilliant. Fast forward a few years and Elizabeth is now a single-mother working as the host of the most watched cooking show, Supper at Six . With Elizabeth's ways of
