Plan with Me: January 2018

Wednesday, January 10th, 2018

Hello 2-0-1-8!!! Hope you’re ready to Plan with Me all year long 🙂

I can not believe we are already back to January and into the year 2018, but here we are! And here I am with another Plan with Me bullet journal video for you.  Like so many other folks around the world this time of year, we are sitting down and reflecting on last year, while looking at the year ahead. Making new dreams and plans and revisiting ones we fell short on previous years.

The past couple of months I have really enjoyed jumping in on this whole bullet journal trend, and I plan to continue it into 2018. It truly is relaxing and productive, at the same time. Doodling and writing out things in your bullet journal is like therapy. It helps you clear your mind, organize your thoughts and create a ‘plan of action’ type approach to your day/week/month ahead. I’m hooked!


Being the start of the month and a new year, my Plan with Me January video is a bit longer, as it includes a few extra spreads to help me map out the year a head. In this video, I am using my Blue Sky Papers Leather Refillable Compostion Notebook with grided pages. I love using this leather journal because it is refillable and  can be used for years to come. And even though I can order my refills right through Blue Sky Papers, I know that I can go nearly anywhere (grocery store, drug store, etc.) and find a composition notebook refill.


I highly encourage you to start a bullet journal if it is something that you have been thinking about doing. Check out this post Bullet Journal for Beginners for tips on getting started and finding supplies. My biggest suggestion is to just start and don’t worry about all the BuJu “rules” (rules are for suckers, anyways! ;p), it is more important to just jump right in.

Find a journal you love and start using it. Over time, you will figure out how you like to use your bullet journal and set up your pages. Some folks get really into setting up their pages traditionally, and perfectly, making sure to use all the correct symbols- and that is awesome and fine (and there are plenty of youtube videos out there to help you do that) if that is what you like. But donnot let any of that stop you from starting. YOU CAN DO IT!

Check out our new Plan with Me January video below, and do us a favor and be sure to go to our youtube channel and like this video and subscribe to our channel! Thank you 🙂 We appreciate the support, always!

And here’s to being more creative and more organized in 2018! Cheers to the new year!
