    The Bullet Journal Method by Ryder Carroll

    I first came across the bullet journal method in 2014. I loved it because it came across as such a simple way to stay organised. Since then I’ve moved between a number of different planners. But I’ve always come back to bullet journaling. For the way, I work its the best tool to help me stay organised. The thing I love most about the bullet journal method is how simple it is to get started. You don’t need to go out and buy an expensive notebook, planner or any other stationery items. You can literally start with whatever notebook you have lying around. Everything you need to know to start…

    How To Start A Minimal Bullet Journal

    Today I want to share my process for setting up a minimal bullet journal. I use small, minimal bullet journals when I have lots of work to be doing. The small size means I don’t feel pressured to make my bullet journal look nice. It’s purely functional and when I have a lot going on it really helps me organise my time. YOU WILL NEED I like using a small A6 notebook for my minimal bullet journals. There are lots of notebook brands you can choose from but I can’t see past the Leuchtturm 1917. I own 3 or 4 notebooks at A6 size now and I love them. The…

    Papergang Unboxing | December & January

    Today I have two Papergang boxes to share. I’m getting a little behind when with my Papergang posts so I thought I would merge two boxes together.

    My 2019 Bullet Journal Set Up

    I recently got into bullet journaling again after picking up the new Ryder Carroll book on Bullet Journalling. For the last 3 months at university I’ve been using a regular agenda style planner, and though useful for mapping out where I needed to be, there wasn’t much space for task planning. I eventually resorted to using something like the bullet journal system with sticky notes. Which while still helpful resulted in me having to keep track of each individual list. In the end, I decided I should just take up bullet journaling again. The Bullet Journal Method really helped me with this part, figuring out a system which was minimal…

    March & April | Papergang Stationery Box

    Today I want to share two Papergang boxes from earlier on in the year. For various reasons I never actually got around to sharing these at the time. Papergang is a stationery subscription box run by Ohh Deer. Every month they get a different illustrator to create artwork and apply that to various paper items. In the past, I’ve mentioned how Papergang can be quite hit or miss with the quality of the box. These two particular boxes show that very well. One was an experiment which didn’t go over well. The other was a particularly good box which I really liked. THE TUBE EXPERIMENT In March of 2018, Papergang…
