November Bullet Journal Flip Through
I am so ecstatic to be continuing my Bujo Flip Through Series on my blog. My Plan With Me videos have always been very popular with my viewers, and I’m glad I get to expand on this series over on my blog as well. Anyway, keep reading for a more detailed view of how I use the systems I create in my monthly, weekly, and daily spreads.
By the way, if you’re not up to speed on what a Bullet Journal is, check this out.

November is the start of the colder weather, so a Sweater Weather theme is more than fitting. It make me feel so warm and cozy to look at this page.

I love to have a monthly overview that I can actually write in! I don’t create my weekly spreads in advance, so this page is helpful for times when meetings, appointments, or other events come up for future weeks. I’m still playing with how I work my SOCIAL TRACKERS, which track my growth on YouTube, Instagram, and WordPress. I’m not in love with this set up, but that’s the great thing about Bullet Journaling; I can change and tweak it as many times as I want until it’s perfect. I also included a master TO DO LIST, for those tasks that don’t have a set deadline, but I know I want to get done at some point. Finally, I have a QUOTE OF THE MONTH. I always try to stick to my monthly theme, and a theme-fitting quote just ties it all in. This month, I chose, “It’s too cold for you here and now so let me hold both your hands in the holes of my sweater” which, of course, are lyrics from The Neighborhood’s hit song.

Being that November is a time of giving thanks, I wanted to make sure that I took some time every day to count my blessings. But, more than that, I wanted to take some time to focus each day on thanking people for things that I don’t really ever say thank you for. November was a really tough month for me, and honestly, this page really lifted my spirits.

If you’ve been reading my previous flip throughs, than you know I’m a little over zealous about my workout habits. I have yet to actually workout more than a couple of days each month, but if it wasn’t for these little fitness trackers, I probably would never work out at all!

With the Holidays right around the corner, I try to take a little closer look into where my money goes in October – which is usually followed by a trim of excess spending in November, as then I know where I need to cut down. Although I liked the idea of this tracker, I don’t think it actually worked for me. I need to find a way to fit all of our expenses on this sheet, so I am definitely revamping this for next month.

Christmas is right around the corner, and I have a big family to shop for. I’m always keeping a close eye on my budget, so I tend to look at sales very carefully this time of year. This spread easily saved me a few hundred bucks on gifts. YAY!

Personally, I love having a weekly spread with a clear view of each day. If I had to keep flipping pages to get to each day, I would drive myself nuts! My spreads consist of a monthly overview, and events section (so they don’t get lost in my list of daily to-do’s), my daily sections, a tiny meal planner, habit tracker, shopping list, and a tracker for Alicia. This month, I also added a GOALS section.

I love incorporating my theme into the days of the month of my daily spreads, so I continued it this month. These little beanies came out exactly like I pictured which is a HUGE deal for a non-artist like myself! I also was able to draw a cute little footprint at the bottom left hand corner, signifying the amount of steps I took each day.

As I’m now working with full weeks, I decided to store all that information on the right side. I’m still making sure to clearly notate my EVENTS separately, and I love that this spread has plenty of space for my water and steps trackers. Obviously, my meal planner is looking extremely empty. I think that is by far my toughest tracker to keep up with. However, I love how my little scarves came out!

I decided to keep my spread the same this week, but switched my scarves out for these little set of mittens. The more I look at them, the less they look like mittens, though! Again, my MEAL PLANNER is empty. 😦

This week, I went for these cute little earmuffs! I kind of fell off the wagon on bullet journaling this week. If you notice, I didn’t even finish the actual set up for this week’s spread. I just had so much stress and was dealing with some anxiety this week.
E N D I N G T H E M O N T H
Again, I couldn’t even be bothered to finish my spread this week. When stress hits me, it hits me hard and I become immensely unproductive. But that’s life sometime, and we gotta keep moving.

Since I ended up having such a rough second half of the month, I ended up going for a really simple MEMORIES spread. After such a tough month, it was nice to be able to go back and look at these memories.
That’s it for this month’s flip-through! I hope you’ve gotten some nice Bujo/Planner/Organizer inspo. If you have any tips, leave them in the comments! Don’t forget to check out my December Plan With Me Theme here!
