Lesson #1 – be really careful when you order Leuchtturm1917 journals on amazon.
As I neared the end of my sunshine yellow Leuchtturm1917 dot grid journal, I knew this was the bullet journal for me. So I took to my favorite online shopping avenue, found *what I thought* was a dot grid in red and completed my purchase. The journal showed up on my doorstep two PRIME days later and unfortunately it was a SQUARED!
Insert sobbing here…
I powered through though, because is it just me or is trying to return things to Amazon always such a chore – especially when they tell you its “your fault” and deduct fees out of your return.
I made the best of it and basically did a page of daily planning per day, with a few random things thrown in there.
I think what I hated the most about this journal was that the top of each page has a section that is blank (no grid) with “DATE” written in. ON EVERY SINGLE PAGE. It totally messed with my ability to function in my beloved planning state.
I made it through two months though, but as I said, each page really became a day, because I just couldn’t make multiple days on a page work. And I was incredibly tired of adding washi tape to the top of every page!
I was pretty excited when it came time to purchase a new one, and I made extra sure that my journal was DOT GRID!
If you’re wondering – I skipped purchaseing from Amazon this time around, and opted for Goulet Pens. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM!
