It’s that time of the year to get together and enjoy our families and friendships. However, it can also be pretty stressful so prepare everything for the big day.
Your Bullet Journal is always there to help you through. Today I’m sharing some page ideas with you on how to add a happy Thanksgiving spirit to your journal, as well as a few ideas on how to use your Bullet Journal to help you organize the big dinner.
There is also a Plan With Me video at the end of the post with me setting up 7 Thanksgiving themed Bullet Journal pages.
Some of these pages are available as a free printable in our Resources Vault, so make sure to drop by and download it from there.
If you aren’t a part of Planning Mashers yet, join us in the signup form at the end of the post to get access to a wonderful community and TONS of free printables for your Bullet Journal.
Once we’re done with the spreads, we’ll also look into different tutorials and stationery that can help you create your own beautiful Thanksgiving Bullet Journal pages.
1. Quote Page
I love quote pages, they are a great way to fill out an empty page in your BuJo and are a strong tool to set the mood.
Plus, making a quote spread is yet another opportunity to get creative and enjoy a moment for yourself.
2. Gratitude Log
It’s Thanksgiving, so isn’t it the perfect time of the year to give gratitude log a chance, even if you’ve never used one before.
3. Bucket List
Creating bucket lists is one of my favorite things to do! It really helps you to remember all the good things you can do in the season.
Create a bucket list for November, Fall or Thanksgiving day. It’s a fun way to have a moment for yourself and build up excitement.
4. Weekly Spread
Whatever your monthly theme for November is, you can always make an exception for Thanksgiving week and create a weekly dedicated to the holiday.
Just take a look at the weekly spreads below for inspiration.
5. Thanksgiving Planning
If you’re the one hosting the big dinner this year, you better be prepared. Make a whole plan of all the things you should do and assign a time slot for them.
You don’t want to run around preparing everything last minute, so take it easy and start working on the big dinner right now. There are plenty of things you can prepare in advance.
6. Guest List
One of the things you can start thinking of right now is the guest list, so why not create a separate Bullet Journal page just for that.
I bet you have a few recipes you love the most, or maybe you just found several new ones you’d like to try out this Thanksgiving, courtesy of Mom or Granny.
Just add them to your Bullet Journal! And leave some space for future comments on what you liked and what you want to improve.
8. Thanksgiving Meal
Planning a meal for the whole family is hard work, so make sure you use your Bullet journal to help you out.
9. Grocery List
This page definitely has to come right after your meal plan. You can just write your grocery list, divide it by types of a meal or maybe divide it by how in advance you can buy things.
Bonus: Travel Pages
A lot of you will probably be traveling for the holidays, so here are a few travel page ideas.
