Bullet Journal Anatomy

New to the Bullet Journal system? Well here’s a basic overview of its anatomy!


I spent a little time sentence discussing this in my first post. But lets dig a little bit deeper into this.

The official Bullet Journal webpage describes the bullet journal as “the analog system for the digital age.” Ryder Carrol (founder/designer/freaking mastermind) has created a great video explaining the basics.  Its a must-watch for those new to the BuJo.  And since we just surpassed the BuJo’s third birthday (August 18, 2016) there’s a great blog post from Ryder about the back-story. Mostly what makes it so unique is its incredible ability to be customized to everything you’ve ever wanted in a planner.  Its basis is an empty notebook – so the possibility’s are literally endless.

After you’ve chosen your empty notebook (mine are the Leuchtturm1917 dot grid A5 journals) it just comes down to these 5 basic parts. Over the next few week’s day’s I’ll be rolling out in-depth posts with MANY photos about each of these 5 parts.

Are you a bullet journal-aholic?
