What Is A Bullet Journal Weekly Spread

The weekly spread in a Bullet Journal is essentially your upcoming week at a glance. It helps you plan each day while keeping an eye on the whole week ahead, ensuring nothing slips through the cracks.

At its heart, a weekly log includes daily boxes where you jot down your to-do lists, appointments, and important notes. If your weekends are usually quieter, feel free to merge Saturday and Sunday into one section for efficiency.

One of the joys of the Bullet Journal system is how adaptable it is. You have the freedom to experiment with your weekly spreads, ensuring they fit your unique needs. Maybe you need more room for daily tasks, or perhaps you’d benefit from adding other elements to streamline your planning.

Here are some creative additions to consider:

  • Weekly habit tracker: Keep tabs on habits you’re building.
  • Weekly water tracker: Stay hydrated by tracking your water intake.
  • Notes: Jot down random thoughts or important reminders.
  • Weekly review: Reflect on what went well and areas for improvement.
  • Meal plan: Plan your meals to save time and eat healthier.
  • Calendar for the month: Get a quick monthly overview.
  • Number of the week: Note down the week’s number for reference.
  • Weekly to-do list: Highlight your most important tasks.
  • House chores list: Organize household tasks to stay on top of chores.
  • Plans for next week: Prepare for the week ahead with ease.

Dive in, play around, and make your weekly spread uniquely yours. The flexibility of Bullet Journaling means it can grow and change with you, helping you stay organized and inspired every step of the way.

Stationery Recommendations

There are plenty more ideas for your weekly spreads, but before we look into that, I wanted to mention some of the supplies that I think you’ll find useful when creating a weekly log.

But keep in mind that you can definitely just use whatever you already have in your collection!

  • Fineliners. These are the basics for every Bullet Journal page, perfect for drawing and doodling. I recommend Sakura Pigma Micron, which also comes in a set with different nib sizes, allowing you a variety of line thicknesses.
  • Markers. If you want to add color to your pages, you’ll need some markers. Your choice will depend on what colors you like. My top choices are Zebra Mildliners and Tombow Twin Tone.
  • Brush pens. To add beautiful brush lettering to your weekly spreads, you need a good set of brush pens. I recommend Tombow Fudensuke since they are smaller tips and pretty easy to master. If you’re looking for a larger brush pen and soemthing with tons of colors, you can’t go wrong with Tombow Dual Brush Pens.
  • Stencils. These little helpers are great to allow you to set up your weekly spreads faster. I recommend these weekly spread stencils that are built specifically for your weekly pages.

With all your supplies prepared, let’s dive deeper into the world of Bullet Journal weekly pages.
