To ease the chaos (that is life), people who keeps a BuJo have start to discover what they need and don’t need for optimal life efficiency. The New Yorker likened the result of bullet journaling to “Marie Kondo for the notebook”.

To clear the confusion in the air, BuJo is not keeping multiple notebooks for organisation–it is lots of different planning occurring in one journal.

What You Can Have in a BuJo

By listing things down, the ability of crossing it off the list upon completion–even the smallest matter–gives an indescribable sense of control and fulfillment in life.

Meal Plan
Draft ahead in what to cook for the week and curate a wholesome grocery list. The functional list helps to save time in grocery trips and prevent overlooking items while shopping.
