While my journaling articles tend to focus on personal growth, bullet journaling is organisation oriented – however the concept of bullet journaling lends itself well to being adaptable to all lifestyles.

Whether you’re a student, or a busy professional or parent, bullet journaling can benefit you. 

And while it’s designed to support planning and organisation, it can absolutely be used within the wellbeing sector of journaling too.

Finding Ideas For Bullet Journal Collections

In order to make bullet journaling work for you, simply create a collection that’s relevant to your life.

As ever, being so open-ended is what can make beginning the process daunting, which is a shame because it’s a highly regarded method of journaling. 

And that’s where this post can help you. I’ve put together this mega list of ideas for bullet journal collections to make getting started as easy as possible. 

What is a Bullet Journal Collection?

If you’re new to bujo you may not have heard the term bullet journaling collection before; essentially it refers to a group of related data from a particular topic.

Think of it like a section within your journal collating all the tasks, notes, and events around a specific theme or purpose.

To create a new collection, flip to your next blank double page in your journal, and write the topic name at the top. Next, find and migrate all related tasks, notes, and events into the collection.

Then simply add the topi name and page number to your index, and you’re done!

Not only is it a great journaling technique for organisation, but it’s also versatile enough that it can be a really creative process – if you want it to be!

Make Your Bullet Journal Your Own!

Once you’ve chosen which collections you’re going to include in your bullet journal, you may choose to keep it simple, but otherwise there are lots of ways to add splashes of colour and originality to make your journal unique.

Washi tape and journaling accessories.

Some people choose to use stickers, colouring pens to create striking headers using a variety of elaborate bullet journal fonts, or washi tape is an excellent way to brighten up your bullet journal key and other pages, with the added bonus of being practical too.

If you have pages you’ll want to update on a weekly basis, such as meal planning and shopping lists, then washi tape is ideal as it should peel off easily.
