#onebookJuly2016 Week 1Review

Well, it’s been 1 week since I started #onebookJuly2016. Here are my thoughts so far on this challenge:

*Heavy. I forgot how heavy this Maverick TN could be.

*Loving my bullet journal insert. This will be continued.

*Missing my system pre-planner addict world…The inserts I have in the Maverick for the month mimic the set up I’ve used my whole life, except for when I was falling down the planner rabbit hole and trying to force myself into a new system. I’ve always used a brain dump notebook and a single wall calendar to stay organized. I’m kinda back to doing that now.

*As lovely as my colletto pen is (Thank you again, Canyon!), I’m burning through ink so quickly! I do have refills, but if I run out of them, I’m switching pens for the rest of the month.

*Piccadilly insert doesn’t lay flat like my daily insert did. Needs binder clips.

*Wasn’t using the Brain Dump/Random Writings notebook at all at first, but once I filled up the Musings and Brain Dump pages in my Collections #2 notebook, I started using the first one.

*Weekly insert helps me see an overview of what my week looks like, but I don’t use it very much.

    The heavy aspect would definitely not sit well with me! But at least you’re getting a work out from the deal 🙂

    I have never tried using a bullet journal you make it sound so easy and very useful.

  4. Do you have a picture of the book you;re using? I’m having a hard time visualizing it.

  5. I have to have lay flat pages. It is just a must for me.

    Maybe I need to try something like this.

  7. Bullet journals are becoming so popular!

    What is #onebookJuly2016? Are you reading 1 book per week?

    • caendicott says:

      #OneBookJuly = 1 book (1 planner actually) + 1 pen for 1 month. Pairing down your planning system to the essentials and figuring what what you really need.

  9. Angie Scheie says:

    Sounds like you are observing a lot with this challenge. It’s hard to be without things we are so used to!!

    • caendicott says:

      Yes, it is. I find myself reaching for certain things and then I have to remind myself that I have to wait until August.

  10. Liz Mays says:

    It sounds like you’re totally fine-tuning your system as you go. That’s exactly how it should work.

  11. Emily says:

    I have never heard of a bullet journal! How interesting.

  12. Amber Starr says:

    I’m not sure I know what a bullet journal is either. You’ll definitely know you preferences after this challenge.

  13. Do you have a link to your first post? I’d love to compare! I keep reading about journalling, but can’t seem to get myself started. Any tips for getting started?
