May Bullet Journal Spread

Hello! I have not shared a bullet journal spread with you all since FEBRUARY because my spreads have all pretty much been the same. My 2020 bullet journal is very minimalistic because I wanted it to serve a specific function & not just be a pretty design (there is nothing wrong with making intricate spreads & I LOVE looking at them, it just wasn’t effective for me personally!!).

This month, I did change some things up, so I decided I would share the spread with you guys!

May BuJo 2020

First up, we have my goals and TBR page. I don’t do a monthly calendar anymore because I don’t use it that much. Most of my monthly planning goes on a google sheets page I have, or on my phone calendar!

I use my overview page to instead write down some goals, as well as my TBR for the month. I like having these written down because seeing it helps me to say on track.

Next to this, I have my expenses sheet, which is one of the most important pages in my monthly spread. I think it’s a really great habit to track your expenses so you can see where your money is going. Plus, knowing that I will have to write down everything I buy makes me want to save my money even more. Each month I try to make this sheet emptier than the previous one!

May BuJo 2020

Next up is my habit tracker! I changed up the format from my previous posts because I think it is easier to use and much cleaner. I also changed some of the habits that I’m tracking because my priorities are different. Plus, I realized that I was tracking some things unnecessarily because I was already doing them every day, or they just weren’t important.

This month, I will be tracking…
1. reading
2. writing
3. working out
4. running
5. drinking enough water
6. meditating
7. any days that I bit my nails (hopefully none)
8. getting enough hours of sleep

May BuJo 2020

Moving on, we go straight into my weekly spreads. You could see some of it in the last picture, but here is a full week’s spread.

I decided to give myself room vertically this month instead of horizontally because I like to plan my days out by hour. This way, I can write down my most important tasks, and I can write out a schedule for myself each day.

So far, I am really liking this method of to-do list-making.

At the bottom of each day, I also write down what workouts I am doing (including the days I want to go for a run). For now, I kept them in pencil just in case if I decide I want to do a different workout one day, or if I injure myself and can’t run (which happened last week).

I also have room at the end of the week to write down any notes that I have. This space is usually dedicated to grocery lists or tasks that I need to move over to the next week!

let's chat

Overall, I’m really happy with my spreads this month, despite how simple they are. I am very glad that I decided to go with a minimalistic BuJo this year because it has been much more sustainable for me. I’ve actually been sticking with it for months now!

Let me know what you think in the comments :)

  1. So cute!! I like writing down my goals/to do list for the day also ‘cause it makes me feel so satisfied every time I put a check mark next to it. Makes me so productive and want to do all things 🤣

  3. I adore your spread!! I wish I had the patience to start a bujo, but as my handy planner works wonders for me, I guess I’ll stick to that for now :’) However, if I were to start, I would definitely go for a minimalistic spread to save time and for functionality. I love the exercise tracker!! Such a great idea xx

    1. It definitely takes a lot of time which is why I stuck to my regular planner for so long (and still do use one for school), but I like how customizable it is when it comes to blogging and lifestyle :)
