Bullet journaling is very popular right now. You can find a lot of inspiration on Instagram and Pinterest; there are also Facebook groups for bullet journaling. Bullet journaling has its own hashtag #bujo. The concept of bullet journaling was started by Ryder Carroll; you can find more at bulletjournal.com.

My favorite Bullet Journaler is Boho Berry. Kara is very creative and shares everything that she does. She also has an Etsy shop where she sells stickers that she creates for you to use in your bullet journal. You can also find a lot of inspiration on Instagram and Pinterest and a Google search will give you lots to look at as well.
I was using Evernote for my planner but I found that I did not use it like I thought I would. After being in front of the computer all day at work there were nights that the last thing I wanted to do was sit in front of my computer. Writing things down helps me remember them. I can take my journal with me in my purse. So far the bullet journal is working great for me! It is much easier to keep track of what is going on and any notes or other things I need to remember.
Do you bullet journal??
