To pair with today’s #PlanWithMeChallenge prompt, I wanted to highlight parts of my October set up.
I still have my trusty FoxyDori traveler’s notebook cover (about 8.5″ x 6″) to hold 3 inserts. I just scored a beautiful pink cover from the big Clearance sale a few weeks ago, and I’m debating moving into it in the next few weeks – but I really want to just have no more than two covers. It’s such a trap to keep buying a ton of stuff – and one of the things I want to work on is being content with what I have.
Inside, I have a collection of different notebooks – a fresh YellowPaperHouse dot grid for my bullet journal (because lists), a gridded May Designs notebook for a daily log (jotting a few thoughts down every day), and a Moleskine grid for Notes and Collections (for lists, ideas, project planning, tracking histories of things, etc)
My Monthly spreads have been the Last Frontier in my modified Bullet Journal – the original lists didn’t work for me, so I tried the standard monthly grid like I’m used to in other planners. I’d decorate it and mark my events… then literally never look at them! So in August I tried a different strategy, and printed off a blank calendar for daily doodling challenges. Nope, never happened.
This month I’m ditching the calendar altogether in favor of a Monthly task list in different categories, and space for October Instagram challenges. I KNOW I will refer to those pages, and perhaps keep the other planning on my Google Calendar. I think this will work!
And of course, my beloved weekly layout. Here, I have adapted slightly.
Well there you have it, folks! That’s how I getting things done in October – how about you?
What do the letters at the bottom of your daily schedule blocks mean? “HL $ GA”
I like your layout, still working on my daily and definitely going to try your new monthly – I was exactly like you, did the traditional BuJo monthly list and then never looked back.

[…] Breakdown: I used this to capture the PlanWithMeChallenge and the tasks I had to do that month. You’ll see a theme for me is that I like loose categorization but a flow for rapid logging. There are two columns inspired by Dee from Decade Thirty, where one is where you can put a date that the task is due and the other is where you check it off. Read more about this set up. […]
