Bullet Journal Set Up for October 2017

Each month, I create a different image to set the mood for my monthly spread. Here, I have the beloved quote from Green Gables. Just because I don't get to see real leaves changing color doesn't mean I don't love October!

I know I've been promising a blog on bullet journaling for a while and this is not that, but I wanted to share my October spread because I'm super excited about it! 

This is my opening spread. On the left are my goals, monthly birthdays, the mark of the new monasticism for October, and more. On the right is the quote from Anne of Green Gables and a calendar at the bottom.  Stickers from the Planner Fairy, River Street Stickers, and Lovely Planner Nerds. Note that I did not purchase these--they were freebies from the meetup I did last weekend!

I love to keep track of my habits each month to see where I'm making progress and what I need to work on.

As someone who lives with celiacs and PCOS as well as anxiety and depression, keeping track of symptoms, outbreaks, etc. is very important. My doctors are pretty impressed with this! Definitely helpful!

I'm really trying to focus on my writing, from my blog to my academic work to simply journaling.  Super cute stickers from Lovely Planner Nerds and The Planner Fairy (both from meet up), Lillie Henry, Stickeriffic (bought during PBC sale), and other sheets I got at the swap.

I'm trying a new weekly set up with a center calendar/to do list to see if that keeps me more organized. We'll see!

Overall, I'm loving my new set up and I'm really enjoying integrating stickers into my planner. It's definitely a lot more fun to look at and use. 

What are you using to stay organized this October?
