I’ve recently become obsessed with bullet journaling and day planner coloring pages. I know… what busy mom has time to spend designing a bullet journal or coloring pages in her day-planner? Well, this one doesn’t! As much as love expressing my creative side, ain’t nobody got time for that! And I know if I don’t have time to doodle those super creative and artistic bullet journal pages (like these), then you probably don’t either. Also, you might not have a creative side but that doesn’t mean you don’t want to try bullet journaling. I mean, doesn’t everyone want to try it and see what the hype is all about? So I decided to create these free printable bullet journal pages so you can save time and try bullet journaling for free! 🙂
In case you’re curious (or in a hurry):
✅ These specific dot journal is the most popular with my readers. It’s a printable Planning Dot Journal that’s already been done for you!
The best part is – you don’t have to spend any money for these journals (unless you count paper and ink, hehe). What I mean is… a really nice bullet journal (like this one) is not cheap and if you are just trying it out, you don’t want to buy one only to find out you hate it, right?
Try a bullet journal for free!
I’m making it super easy for you to try it out and if you love it, then maybe you keep printing my freebies or maybe you invest in a really cool journal and start posting pics of your beautiful pages on Instagram 🙂 If you could just mention that my free printables were your inspiration, that would be great 😉
You might be wondering what a bullet journal is.
I had no clue what it was until I did some research a couple months ago and found a bullet journal description to be a combined day planner/journal/diary/sketchbook/to-do list. But what I found most interesting when I started designing my bullet journal pages was that I could make each page anything I wanted it to be.
You see, there are A LOT of different planners and journals out there. Like a blogging planner, business planner, mom planner, meal planner or a gratitude journal, meditation journal, travel journal… and the list goes on and on!
A bullet journal simplifies all those planners, journals, and to-do lists into one system.
The best part is… you can design and decorate it however you want. Now, I know some people have no artistic ability and need structure telling them how to use each page, so I’m going to show you how I used these blank pages and once you start yours, you will probably come up with your own pages and ideas.
Just keep in mind that your bullet journal doesn’t have to be pretty or perfect. All that matters is that you can read it and it’s functional for you.
Here are few pics of my binder (from Target One Spot) with the free printable bullet journal pages. The binder is 7″ x 9″ if you are wondering if these pages will work for a binder you already own. The pages measure 5.5″ x 1.5″ and are there are 6 free printable BLANK pages included in the PDF file. I went ahead and outlined the pages so you can just fill in whatever you want in the boxes. There are small bullets (dots) on each page to make it easier to write or draw your own images.
- 7″ x 9″ 3-ring binder
- Copy Paper
- Various colored pens, marker or pencils
- Various colored washi tape
I use these small 3- ring binders because they are a perfect size (and cost) for these printable bullet journal pages!
Use a laser printer like this one because the quality will be better. You will see the “bullets” on each page which makes it easier to doodle your own creations if you wish!
Having colorful markers like these fine-tipped ones makes it easy to write smaller and color-code your journal.
I use this washi tape so if I make a mistake I can easily cover it up or decorate my pages 🙂
Use washi tape to cover up mistakes like I did on the 2017 calendar below.
I used the below blank pages as a goal setting page (you could do daily, monthly, quarterly or yearly goals) and the days of the week on the next page. If you really like your designs you can just scan and copy the page to repeat in your binder for a lazy method, hehe. I’m sure dedicated bullet journalers are laughing at me right now for saying to copy the pages 🙂
On the below pages I made myself a gratitude page (it was November when I took these pics) and specific monthly goals/reminders on the next page.
Below you can see how the pages look blank.
✅ Once you fall in love with bullet journaling (you probably will) invest in one of these bullet journals 🙂
The possibilities are endless when it comes to bullet journaling and you have nothing to lose since it’s completely free! Print these now so you can get organized for the new year and combine your blogging planner, business planner, mom planner, meal planner, gratitude journal, meditation journal, travel journal…etc, etc, etc!
✅ My readers also love this printable dot journal that’s full size with coloring pages and more!
