The perfect spread?

Something I am starting to think is almost near impossible to achieve would be the “perfect spread”. As a Bullet Journal Junkie I spend hours and hours just planning the perfect spread trying to decide what I need, don’t need, colors, stickers, well everything. Having only started my journey this year in June I have been changing my spreads a lot in that time trying to learn what works best for me.

After having tried many upon many layouts I can say that after tweaking my go to spread to include some different things I felt I needed and wanted I finally feel quite content with my spread. For the first week of October I tried a different spread that required me to draw them out the night before rather than a weekly view. I found very quickly I didn’t care for this style and soon decorated the blank spots so I could start a new week the way I preferred.

My go to spread has been shared in the past, I love it because it has my entire week on two pages as well as any trackers I need that aren’t included in my monthly, and any extras I feel to be useful. After spending some extra time last night planning and tweaking my goto spread I finally came out with a spread that I am quite proud of and think I might be using until I feel the need to change things up again.

As you can see I got a little bit more friendly with a few stickers I have. I also did some more bright colors and moved some things around. I removed my fitness tracker as well as my mini month view. I changed my snapchat/instagram tracker to instead include a goal for the week (filling in all the bubbles before the week is out). I also added a brain dump which was originally on it’s own spread but I felt it was more unused that way so this seemed much easier to use rather than page flipping. Lastly I added a 7 little boxes, these will be used for the Drawlloween Challenge. I like the idea of the challenges being on my weekly spread rather than their own. They are much smaller and cuter looking.

I really like my spread this week. I couldn’t resist sharing it. It’s a lot more colorful than I used to do and I think it has inspired me for how I want to continue my Bujo. I know I’ll make changes as time passes but for now this is perfect!

  1. This spread looks really pretty. I’m having some problems trying to create the perfect weekly spread for me. I just find all my weeks to be different so I have to change my layout each week

      I tried a few different ones before I finally found one I liked. I ordered a Happy Planner though to give it a shot, not sure I’ll use the preprinted layouts though, I like the idea of drawing my own since it’s nice relax time. I think for me though seeing my week on two pages really helps. I’ve done the dutch door and even tried having a daily per page but in the end I find myself back to a week setup like this. I do change my little trackers though quite often. I can’t ever decide how I want to do them outside of my monthly tracker.
