Bullet journals are trendier than ever and a new year is a great time to start a new bullet journal. There are so many benefits and reasons to use a bullet journal, but mainly to record the past, plan the future and live in the present. Bullet journals also help you stay on top of all of the things going on in your life. And there is no better place to get inspired with your bullet journal than on Pinterest.
I started using Pinterest in 2012, so I was a little late to the game. Pinterest launched in January of 2010 and quickly grew. Think of it as an online bulletin board. You can post (pin) recipes, décor, holiday ideas, hair, nails, wedding and even bullet journals! Pinterest is home to literally anything you can think of from home ideas to style ideas like cute outfits. I use Pinterest for all of these things so that I can get ideas. Plus, it is fun and convenient. You can even tag friends in pins and send them to friends easily. This social media site is different than other sites like Facebook, but it is extremely useful.
We have talked a lot about bullet journals in previous posts. So, let’s recap! There are many ways to use a bullet journal. As we have explained, you can record the past, organize the present and plan the future. Use a bullet journal to map out your goals and keep track of your accomplishments. A bullet journal can be used for many things, especially to organize your life in general and plan for the day, week, month or even year. You can go as in depth as you want and include things like your fitness plans, work schedule, cleaning schedule, mood tracker and organize holidays like Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. I love how it keeps me on track and holds me accountable. Plus, I can design my bullet journal in multiple ways!
