Welcome back to the second post in the Anatomy of the Bullet Journal series! Today we’re all about the Index.
The index is just as it sounds. It’s a record of all the pages in your notebook, and what is on them. You can go super detailed and write down every single page, or just do the basics. Generally I just do the basics which include a range for my monthly pages (the monthly overview, memories, gratitude, tracking and daily pages), and then any important collections.
My first bullet journal was a Moleskine Squared notebook. I had only left two pages for the index, and this wasn’t enough. Towards the end of the book I created a third index page.
After the Moleskin I moved on to my current notebook of choice, the Leuchtturm1917 Dot Grid. These notebooks have pre-designed index pages (3 of them).
As with anything in the Bullet Journal, the index is what you make of it. I love being able to quickly find a page I’m looking for, but that only works when I update my index.
What about you? What does your index look like?
