We love bullet journals. But even more than that, we love the people behind the bullet journal. Welcome to our Featured Bullet Journal series – where we give you a peek inside the brains, and journals, of some cool people. Want to get featured? We would love to have you. Learn more here.
Today we are chatting with Jen from Liv Laugh Love.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and what prompted you to start a bullet journal?
I am a mom, PhD student, Full Time teacher, and freelance writer. I needed to get organized!
Why do you bullet journal over other planning systems?
Other systems didn’t give me the flexibility for my crazy lifestyle! I am non-stop, and it’s hard to keep all my ducks in a row. Sometimes I need two pages for a day, sometimes a half a page. I love the flexibility!
What are your ‘can’t live without’ tools for bullet journaling?
I love my Papermate Flairs and Sharpie Pens. I also bought a less expensive journal from Peter Pauper Press. What I really need is a black Pilot pen, Sharpie pen, or Flair. The rest is just bonus. (Editors note: see our favorite supplies)
What is one piece of advice you have for someone just starting out?
Make it your own! Do not worry about mistakes. A bujo is supposed to make your life easier, not complicating it by spending hours on a layout. If you love doing that, go for it, but it doesn’t have to be complicated.
Where do you go for bullet journal inspiration?
Thrifty Bullet Journaling (my group) or Bullet Journal Junkies. I also love Instagram.
That handwriting though, right?! Heart eyes emoji all the way.
