It’s been a few years now since I started bullet journaling.
In the beginning, I wasn’t sure it would stick. I made some natural mistakes: First, my journal was too big; then, I bought markers that bled and drove me nuts.
But I’ve stayed with it, and found that it’s by far the most effective organizational system I have ever used. In fact, I joke that my bullet journal is basically my brain.
As a busy working, homeschooling mom, I put EVERYTHING in my journal.
I also write about it. A lot.
So I wanted to put all of those posts in one place in case you want to give this organization system a shot.
