Bullet journaling is the new craze to hit the planner world and it is gaining some serious traction. This new way of planning requires only a notebook and a pen. I knew nothing about Bullet journaling a few months ago, but as I began my deep-dive into this new way of planning I instantly knew this was the method for me. This Bullet Journal review will cover what Bullet Journaling is, what you need to get started, and what I love about this new system of planning.

What is Bullet journaling?

Bullet Journaling is an analog system that is customizable and uses a series of symbols and modules to organize to-do lists and collections that are created. The main goal of Bullet Journaling is to teach you to do more with less.

What you need to get started:

All you need is a notebook and a pen. Leuchtturm1917 makes A5 notebooks that work great with Bullet Journaling. They also have a Bullet Journal Notebook that is made specifically for Bullet Journaling. Any pen will work, but I really like Stabilo, Tombow Dual Brush Pens, and Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. They help being your Bullet Journal to life.

What I love about Bullet Journaling:

- The system is forgiving and flexible. You can change the way you plan based on your needs since the book is a blank slate.

- You can neatly organize and keep track of all aspects of your life from books you want to read to monitoring your weight loss goals.

- You can use your notebook as a creative outlet by adding doodles, sketches, and pops of color with markers or pens. You can also keep it simple and omit all of the additional flair.

- You can find a notebook that best suits your preferences, however, I do love the size and look of the Leuchtturm1917 A5 and Bullet Journal Notebooks.
