Happy New Year!

Welcome 2015

I hope that you had a memorable and safe New Year’s Eve.  Our house was pretty calm as we watched movies, cooked dinner, and enjoyed the last night of 2014.  Today we will be watching my husband’s alma mater, Michigan State University, play in the Cotton Bowl against Baylor.

Because it is January 1st, it’s only appropriate to show you my 2015 Bullet Journal.  I started a brand new Moleskine journal for my day-to-day needs, and a 3-ring binder for other tracking.

Bullet Journal 2015

I’ve been spending a lot of time on Pinterest and a Facebook page, Bullet Journal Junkies, and collecting ideas for how to create the most Amanda-friendly setup.  I’ve pulled inspiration from a few sources:

Another amazing pin that I found talked about indexing hacks.  I don’t like the idea of having tabs sticking out of the side of my Moleskine, so this was perfect!

Using an X-ACTO knife, I was able to create my own “internal” tabs:



For now, I only made two tabs:

1.  Monthly List

2.  Lists

Lists and Months

As if I weren’t documenting every single thought and event that is going to occur in 2015, a good friend shared a 5-year Q&A journal that I just HAD to have!  I used my birthday gift/Amazon card and purchased my own copy.

What I thought was so interesting and cute about this journal is that each day of the year provides not only a topic to reflect upon, but five years worth of space to see how your perspective changes.  I am going to make this a task to track because I want to see how I change over those years.

I’m off to get ready for a delicious lunch of homemade chop suey and smashing Spartan football!

Enjoy your January 1st!
