There are so many styles for your Bullet Journal, everyone can create something perfect just for them. Today I want to talk about simple weekly layout designs.

Minimalist Bullet Journal Supplies
To be honest, all you really need for a minimalist weekly spread is a notebook and a pen. In case you still haven’t gotten any, check my post on How To Pick A Perfect Notebook For Your Bullet Journal. If you go for a classy minimalist design you can try Leuchtturm 1917 or even the official Bullet Journal notebook.
When it comes to pens any pen works. Some of my favorite ones for Bullet Journaling are Staedtler Fineliner and Muji Pen. One of my favorites and a long time love among minimalist Bullet Journal artists is also grey colored Zebra Mildliner Highlighter or even greyscale Tombow Dual Brush Pens.
Now that this is out of the way, let’s get to the spread ideas. If you’re interested in getting more stationery, there will be some recommendations there. You can also check my post on Bullet Journal Essential Supplies, where you can find plenty of recommendations about different kinds of pens and highlighters.
Easy Minimalist Bullet Journal Weekly Spread Ideas
Minimalist Bullet Journal spreads are stunning, and all you need to create those are a notebook and a pen. They can get very artistic and elaborate as well, but here I picked some very simple and easy to follow designs.
Can’t get any easier than this one! All you need to create this weekly layout is a journal, a ruler (if you prefer your lines to be extra straight) and a fineliner. And since the design is very minimal, one page has enough free space to write down all the tasks
Super simple but extremely good looking weekly spread! As an option instead of a little calendar in the first rectangle, you can always just write down your weekly to-do list. One trick I learned – to help you speed up drawing the days sections, use stencils. With them you can draw your daily rectangles is no time at all! And they are very affordable.
True minimal weekly spread with not a single extra element. Olivia herself said it took her just a few minutes! If you wonder what notebook this is to copy the measurements – it’s Scribbles That Matter.
Perfect setup if you have very busy working days, but your weekends are kind of free. And here you can see one more favorite thing for minimal Bullet Journal – grey Zebra Mildliner highlighter. It’s really small and barely noticeable detail but adds that little something to your spreads.
Don’t have that many tasks, but have lots of everyday routine things you need to track? Then this weekly layout is for you – have a whole page for your trackers! Again pretty easy, just some lines put together. And a splash of color. If you feel like you’d like some metallic shine on your pages, try out these Kuretake Zig Fudebiyori Metallic Brush Pens.
For a more fun school-ish look try out this weekly layout. You can even skip the ruler and draw the lines by hand – it’ll just add some extra charm to your journal. As you see, Mandy used my favorite Sakura Pigma Fineliners and Tombow Dual Brush Pen in grey-blue color to set the page.
You also can see she has a white Uniball Pen. Not sure if she used it, but it’s a little neat trick – if you make a mistake in your journal just draw with white pen over it to hide! This is actually my favorite way to fix my mistakes, you can learn about other ways in my post 11 Creative Ways To Fix Mistakes In Your Bullet Journal.
The easiest weekly setup is actually the original Bullet Journal one. Just write the date and the tasks right under it. If you feel like adding some color, I definitely recommend you Zebra Mildliners, like the ones Sarica used on the picture above.
Best decoration for your page is your handwriting! That way, even an easy spread like this one, can look extremely cute. And again enough space to fit the whole week in just one page.
This wonderful spread is as simple as it can be! And yet it has all you need for planning a successful week: daily planning, weekly to-do list, habit tracker and even space to prepare for the upcoming week. I also really like the little touch of color.
I also had a busy time when I switched to a simple weekly layout. What I love about this spread, is how much space I had, in the end, to write down all the notes and tasks! As for the materials I used, it was just a ruler, Sakura Pigma Microns and grey Zebra Mildliner for an extra touch.
I found these pages being very aesthetic, but also super simple to make. Wouldn’t you agree? This only proves that even in the busiest of time you can still find time to Bullet Journal and sort all the tasks.
