I have a BUJO that I use on a daily basis. I started this back in August 2020. I would do a page a day of my to-do lists, reminders to drink water, exercise, declutter, organize, run errands, etc. I would decorate each day with stickers and add thin strips of washi tape around the edges of the paper.
That lasted a week. As my days got busier, I had less time for decorating. My detailed lists became brief and shorter.
As time went on, I continued to create my daily pages and tried out different formats that made more sense to me and my lifestyle.
My monthly calendar page changed from pre-printed calendars to a two page spread that I drew out with my fountain pens and inks.
My daily pages were a waste of space and I was able to come up with another configuration of putting all seven days across a two page spread. That made a huge difference in my ability to see the whole week at a time.
It was back in early 2021 that I started this monthly and weekly configuration you see here from the two pictures. As I have limited space, no stickers or washi tapes are used. I might occasionally sneak in a sketch or two.
The little red cups I sketched out are reminders to drink water throughout the morning and afternoon.
I also record the weather outside (sunny, cloudy, rainy) and the temperature for the day. This activity allows me to do a bit of sketching in my daily BUJO.
My Stalogy journal holds a lot of pages and can get chunky as a result of all the washi tape and sticker applications. It’s a lovely journal I can leave open on my desk and the pages lay flat.
