Back to School Bullet Journal Spread Ideas

In the spirt of back to school season I created a number of different student and back to school themed bullet journal spreads. As always with the spreads I create I use the application GoodNotesApp  along with the  Bargain Depot Stylus 2 Pack from Amazon. Some of this spreads are from my blog post Student Bullet Journal Spread Ideas and some of them I have never shared on my blog.

August Book Review: Sharp Objects

My Reasons For Reading This Book Recently I have really been enjoying listening to podcasts about the books I have read so far this year. I was listening to a book club podcast on Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. I read and reviewed this book earlier in the year and absolutely loved it. One of the members of the podcast book club recommended reading the two books Gillian Flynn published before Gone Girl, one of the two is Sharp Objects .

Monthly Set Up: Digital Bullet Journal

This blog post will explain how I set up my bullet journal for a new month. Since I plan digitally, if you are curious for why I do that check out my blog post Switching to a Digital Planner- Paperless Planning , my set up for a new month does not take long at all.

I highly recommend this application for anyone interested in planning digitally. The price is worth it. The styluses I use are either the Pilot G2 Pen Stylus or the Bargain Depot Stylus 2 Pack . Monthly Trackers The first spread I paste into my digital bullet journal is my monthly trackers. Over the past few months this spread has changed to include different habits that I want to specifically track for that month. Most recently this spre

Over the past year I have been implementing zero waste practices into my life. Currently I am not living 100% zero waste. With that being said I have complied a list of four of my favorite zero waste products for those who are just starting to work towards zero waste and for those who are just looking for products that are overall better for the environment. All of the products listed below can be found on Amazon. Bamboo Utensils Bamboo utensils are a great alternative to using plastic silverware. By eliminating the use of plastic silverware you are lessening the amount of waste that is being sent to the landfill or recycling center. Aside from the fact that bamboo utensils are beautiful, they are also reusable and biodegradable. I make sure to always carry a set around wi
