Anatomy of the Bullet Journal: Daily Planning

And here we are with the next post in the Anatomy of the Bullet Journal series!  We’re getting there! Today is all about Daily Planning.


I would consider there to be three forms of daily planning within the bullet journal.  At least, there are three forms that are most commonly used.  I have attempted all of them.  Some I use and some I don’t, and as always each of them can be completely customized to be what you want it to be.

Monthly Planning

The first form of daily planning is really “monthly planning.” Now let me explain that I feel monthly planning is not future planning because this is just the month you’re in; you don’t get this detailed in your journal unless you’re dealing with the current month.

I’ve used the common list style, a monthly gird on one page (or even two pages).  My favorite is definitely the most common list format.

a little more detailed month style, with a no spend calendar (that I stopped tracking…)

Weekly Planning

The second form of daily planning is weekly planning.  Honestly weekly planning does not work for me.  I just can’t justify using the space in my journal when I don’t look back at the pages.  But I wanted to try it just to see. Now, my sister is a mom of two (she’ll be guest posting here soon) and she weekly plans all the time.

Daily Planning

The last form of daily planning, is just that – actual daily planning.  I swear by this – and if I’m going to skip out on something in my journal it would be everything else BUT this!

One thought on “Anatomy of the Bullet Journal: Daily Planning

  1. The aforementioned sister here 😉. Weekly planning is my life saver and keeps me sane. I use the monthly list style as well, but the thought of doing dailies is overwhelming with two little ones. Will chime in soon with how my Bujo is my “me-time”
