Q: How many planners are you currently using?

A: As of right now, I’m using my Erin Condren Life Planner and my bullet journal. I’m using the Erin Condren until I find my rhythm with the bullet journal system. I’m hoping I can use the bullet journal system as a gradebook of sorts when I go back to teaching in September.

Q: When do you normally plan?

A: I usually plan in the mornings, or whenever my son takes his naps. I usually will reflect on the day before, especially if I’m filling in my gratitude log or memories I want to include. I will then plan for the following day or add any other tasks for the day at hand.

Q: What supplies do you use for bullet journaling?

Q: What’s your advice for those that are just getting into bullet journaling?

A: Find supplies that work for you and don’t get caught up with what everyone else is using. Experiment with layouts, seek inspiration from Pinterest and Instagram and dive right in! The most important thing is to just have fun with it, because at the end of the day, your bullet journal will be a diary of sorts filled with your thoughts and to-dos, and whatever else you may include. You have to be happy with it because in the end, that’s all that really matters. 🙂
