Bullet Journal Monthly Page


My New Bullet Journal set up works really well to my advantage. I got to see all my tasks and do as many as possible. I didn't miss a day without planning and for me that's a major success so far.

Today is another installment on the Basics of Bullet Journaling. I started this series with Guide to Index Page and Keys and now we will be focusing on Monthly Pages. This is another core of the Bullet Journal system for it starts all the planning you'll do in your life. A good Monthly Page can amplify your productivity and avoid stressing too much.

Monthly Page

There are more than a dozen ways you can create your Monthly Page. Some follow the original method as seen on the Bullet Journal YouTube video which is the vertical style. Others create boxes that resembles the normal calendar view. Again the best thing about the Bullet Journal System is how versatile it can be. If something doesn't work for you on the first time you can easily change it. 

The best tip is to find inspiration on Pinterest or Instagram on how Monthly Pages are created. Famous Bullet Journalist such as Kara of Boho Berry, Kim of Tiny Ray of Sunshine and Christine of Christine77star are some of my go-to sites whenever I need creative input on my set up. A monthly page also known as monthly log always consist of the date and the task and/or event on the particular day. It should give you a quick view of what will happen over the next 30-31 days.

Depending on what layout/method you'll use to log your month all starts with dedicating a page or a spread of your bullet journal to the cause. 

1. Make a header for the current month followed by the days and dates of that month. If you choose the vertical method you can list the dates alongside the first letter of the day instead to save space.
