My Bullet Journal Hacks

Today I thought it would be fun to share with all of you some of my bullet journal hacks that I’ve picked up over the years. These are all little things that I have incorporated into my BuJo, that have helped me stay organized.


I use just the simple stick on post-it tabs to label pages I frequently refer back to. Like the current month, no-spend tracker, financial review, and any other spread I am always looking for.



Color Coding Pages

Color coding pages is an easy way for me to categorize my spreads, and easily find what I’m looking for. There are two ways that I do this:

1. Highlighting individual pages

I will highlight each page with one of the 4 colours I use to code my pages: Pink for personal, Blue for business, Orange for health & fitness, Green for financial, Yellow for daily pages.

Coloured Pages 3
Coloured Pages 2

2. Stickers on the sides of pages

This is a much more obvious way of colour coding my pages. I don’t do this on every page, as I find it bulks up the journal too quickly. But I will do it for any major spreads that I want to come back to throughout the months or year. It also makes it easy to see what pages are marked when the book is closed. I generally use just plain Avery labels for this.

 Printing my Own Labels

Another thing I love to do, is print my own labels. I don’t use these often, generally only in my editorial calendar….but they’re handy to have. I love that I can colour code them and customize them any way I want. I use Avery labels for this as well. Stayed tuned to my YouTube Channel for a tutorial on this coming soon.
