Bullet Journal – September Setup

Hello sunshine!

it has been a long time since my last bullet journal setup. as I have told you in my last Bullet Journal – August Setup I changed my system. I’m no longer preparing a whole month at once but every week as I need it.

This month the theme is all about leaves and the beginning of autumn.

I loved the simplicity of line art designs lately, so I went for another one. Every page is decorated with different kinds of leaves.

My August has been very bright with all the yellow parts. I konw that it does not look that yellow on the pictures, but in reality it is the colour of sunflowers.  So this month I wanted something muted more like gold but not as gold as my July (which you haven’t seen yet but I’m sure you will see it soo. Anyway: this month’s colour is „deep ochre“ from Ecoline (No. 07).

My Bullet Journal monthly spread for September

During the last months I have used this layout quite often. It’s big enough for every important date or deadline, and it has space for notes underneath. 

I had to blur some information, because as I said I have used this spreads for 3 weeks now. Usually I edit the pictures so you cannot see that there has been any note on the spread before, but this time it was not that easy and I want to show you, that I actually use my own spreads.

I went for a vertical lettering for the word „September“ on the left side edge. The leaves are inspired by a drawing I saw on pinturest, as all my drawings are. To make them looklike they are behind the calendar-box, I used a bigger black for the main drawing and a tomwob grey (N75) for the parts behind the calendar.

This is my first weekly spread for Septmeber

Honestly, this week was a mess. I had so much going on and this spread was a perfect fail. It is not enough space for each day and I ended up not using it, as you can so on the days of the weekend.

But first things first: why did I organized it the way I did?

Well, I thought that one page fortwo days was to much. And so I tried to put a whole week on one spread, but I wanted to keep my running to do list. I made theschedule for the week on the left and the running to do list on the right side. The special about the running to do list was that I tried to prioritise my tasks. First all the things I try to do on a daily basis, such as a habit tracker, and then priority 1,2, and 3. Well…. I did not have the time to do any of my prio 1 tasks,and everything else was done on the weekend.

So I wanted to make it better the next week.

Again, I went for a weekly spread on one page.

Now, you might think I did not learn anything from the fist week, but I did. I changed the running to do list one the right side back to the basic layout. So I had much more space to use… but actually, I did not use it.

It looks prettier though, but it was not much better than the first week. Again, I had not enough space for each day. It is a perfect reflection of my current feelings. Having to much to do and not enough time/ space to even start everything.  

Although they have not been as handy as the should have been, both weekly spreads look beautiful.

I love the golden colour with the simple line art. It gives me the perfect vibe for early-autumn or late-summer.

And this is this week's spread.

It is different than the weeks before but still one week on one spread. I had a similar design in august, shich I loved and so I recreated it. Instead of the whole week on one page,I made four days a side and the other three days on the otherside. And at the bottom right corner is enough space for my running to-do-list, which has never been longer than 8 or 10 tasks.

I went for a autumnal leave desing.

the divider between the days is made of different kinds of leaves. Some of them are colored with my golden monthly colour.  Honestly, I have not expected it to look that good. I’m in love with this page. Not because of the layout – we shall see whether it is good or not, but with the whole autum theme.

I already added all my daily times (wake up, train, start working, done with work, gym) and some important meetings. It became my routine to write down my daily to-do’s the night before and so I have still enough space left to do so.

And this is my current monthly setup for September!

I hope you like the look of it and my honst stories about the spreads so far. I’m a fan of posting beautiful pictures on Instargram, but I also want to show you the truth.

Have you ever had a spread that turned out beeing the unhelpful page you have ever created? I would love to hear your story!

See you next time! ❤
