Bullet Journal Setup: October 2017

September is ending very soon. It’s just crazy how fast time flies, right? I can’t believe it’s already October and we’re only 3 months away from 2018. September has been pretty busy for me, in a good way, even though I haven’t had the time to keep up with my regular posting schedule. One of the many things that keep me busy this month is my two little guinea pigs. They are handful but, also, a huge bundle of joys. You can follow me on Instagram where I post about them daily. Anyway, October is right around the corner which means it’s time a another Bullet Journal Setup post. If you want to see how I set up my bullet journal for September, check out this link HERE.

Because it’s Fall season, I decided to go with the Autumn leaves theme and warm brown color for the month of October. My drawing isn’t very good, but hey, I think the leaves still turned out to be pretty okay!

Usually, I would make a cover page for every month. However, for my October bullet journal setup, I didn’t do that because I wanted to save papers. My journal only has a few pages left and I want to keep the entire 2017 in the same journal. Of course, we still have 2 months left in 2017 so I gotta save as much papers as I can.

Last month, I tried out the typical standard calendar layout for the first time. I found that it works very well for me; therefore, I recreated it for October. In each box, I have 3 small squares in pink (for Instagram photo-posting), blue (for 15-min cleaning) and green (for exercising). It’s like a mini habit tracker.

Next is my monthly notes page. On the left page, I created 4 sections for Goals, Important notes, Next Week (I realized that it’s supposed to be “Month” not “Week” haha) notes and my Shopping List for October. On the right side, I dedicated a whole page for deadlines. I’m no longer in school but I’ve recently started a new job which has a lot of projects’ deadlines. Therefore, I wanted to make sure that I have them down somewhere that I can check back and keep track of.

Finally, we come to my weekly spread. My weekly spread has changed a little bit from last month. You can check my September and August bullet journal setup to see what I previously used. Basically, I have the whole week on the right side to write down important tasks that need to be done on a specific day. The left side is my running list of tasks that can be done any day of the week.

That’s it for my October bullet journal setup. I hope this post gives you some inspirations for your own bullet journals. Please, don’t forget to check out my other social media handles and tag me @joliecious in your October bullet journal setup. Your creations will be a huge inspiration for me.
