Join me for my 2019 bullet journal setup!
The end of 2018 saw a lack of bullet journaling. It was not very consistent. In 2019 I want to change this, as when I have a journal spread, my organisation level is far better. Rather than carrying on with monthly spreads, I wanted to start afresh in 2019 – albeit in the same notebook – and have some official ‘introduction’ pages, before jumping into January. I was inspired by Amanda Rach Lee after watching her 2019 setup video and have incorporated aspects of her design in my year setup.
2019 Bullet Journal Setup
I really liked the simple black and white layout of Amanda’s setup. We can definitely say that my love for minimalism will not be disappearing anytime soon in 2019. The clear, bold text stands out from the page, and the diamonds give a decorative touch without being over the top.
This is the first time I have done a full calendar page, as I started my bullet journal in July. Although writing out all those numbers is a bit monotonous, it makes life easier when designing monthly spreads as you already have the information to hand.
Changing My Key
For my 2019 bullet journal setup, I decided to change my key to a more traditional bullet journal key as I feel this is clearer to follow.
Unlike 2018, before creating any monthly spreads, I have included an important dates section. This allows me to note down events now and keep on top of my planning.
Something new for 2019?
Whether your New Year’s resolution is to be more organised or just to get creative, bullet journaling is a great way to achieve both.
I hope you enjoyed this 2019 bullet journal setup. If you have a go yourself, then let me know how it went. My January monthly spread setup will be on the blog soon. Have a Merry Christmas everyone!
