One of the biggest pros of the Bullet Journal system is the way you keep Collections in one place. I was always a list maker and rapid-logger of various things – errands to run, gifts to give, trips to coordinate, books to read… all on Post-Its and half-filled notebooks littered around my apartment. Then I discovered the Bullet Journal and the concept of collections all in one place.
In my Traveler’s Notebook system, I have an insert devoted to these Collections. This way, they would be more enduring than my Planning insert, which is dedicated to my weekly planning layouts. The best part is that I can just turn the page and start something new. Some lists aren’t surprising, and others are more unique. I have noticed I keep a few types of collections – archiving information for future reference, planning larger projects, and tracking progress and development.
A lot of Bullet Journalists wonder about what lists people keep, so here’s a peek into a few of the lists I’ve kept:
There are so many ways you can use collections – I’m about to migrate to a new notebook and will get to be creative and reflective about what I move over. See my updated collections here! What collections do you keep?
