2018 Bullet Journal Setup + Goals

Happy 2018, y’all!

I hope everyone’s year is off to a great start! After taking a break to wrap up a year that can only be described as a child on two cans of Monster energy drink, I’m glad to be back with exciting plans for Anhthology.

As a hoarder of all things stationery, I always welcome the new year with open arms because a fresh start means a brand spankin’ new bullet journal (and an excuse to buy more supplies, but that’s not the point here). Rather than looking back at 2017 for my first post of the year, I thought I’d combine my goals for 2018 with a peek into the bullet journal setup that’ll help me work towards those goals. And if we happen to have the same goals, (1) congrats on taking that first leap and (2) I hope this flip-through helps you turn your goals into measurable and achievable steps!

A Beginner’s Guide to the Bullet Journal

So, you promised yourself that you’re going to be more organized this year. You ditched the scattered sticky notes and five mobile apps that just weren’t working for you and began your search for a good ol’ planner. With hundreds of options in the market, there’s bound to be one made just for you – or so you thought.

There’s not enough space for everything.

I’m never going to use these sections.

The design isn’t for me.

What do you mean that planner is $60?!

No matter where you looked, there wasn’t a single planner that met all of your needs. But I wouldn’t throw in the towel just yet, especially not without giving the bullet journal system a try.

MUJI Stationery Favorites

For me, there are two places where the word “restraint” loses all of its meaning: LUSH and MUJI.

For those who aren’t familiar with MUJI, it’s a Japanese retail company that sells simply-designed and practical items, ranging from clothing and household goods to beauty products and snacks. Its full Romanized name is Mujirushi Ryohin, which translates to “no-brand quality goods”. Don’t let the name fool you, though – MUJI prides itself on creating simple, good quality products at a low cost to them and, therefore, their customers.

There’s something for everyone at MUJI, but the busiest area in any given store would have to be the stationery section. Their writing utensils and notebooks were my go-to supplies throughout college, and I still use them to this day. Over the years, I found that there were products that my MUJI trips wouldn’t be complete without. And after going on a little shopping spree a few weeks ago, I thought I’d share some of my favorites!
