My 2019 Bullet Journal Setup

Happy 2019!

Whether you’ve been journaling a while or this is the year you’ve decided you’re finally going to commit to it, welcome to the club!

At the beginning of each new year, I start by purchasing a new journal. There’s just something about having a new set of crisp, clean pages that really helps make it feel like a brand new year. Since it’s been a while, I also purchased a new set of pens this year (which I’m loving!).

For a full list of supplies, check out the end of this post

Now in my third year (and third journal), I’ve narrowed down the way I set up the beginning of each one. (Do a simple Google or Pinterest search and you’ll find a ton of examples of different ways to set up your journal, so remember that this is just one way.)

Welcome page/Hello 2019

This is the second year I’ve started with a “Hello” page and I love it. It’s just for fun and it can be as simple or complex as you’d like.

With just a righthand page to start off the journal (the left side is blank), this is the perfect way to start the new year!

Important dates

This section is good for a whole year calendar, since I no longer use monthly spreads or calendars. It lists out all major holidays, but (most importantly for me) I’ve got everyone’s birthday and anniversary (along with the years for both!) here.

Packing List

This has been a game changer for me when packing for trips. No longer do I make a list every time – I simply refer to this whenever I pack!


I’ve been using this one every year, and still love it. I play around with a new design every year, too, which makes such a simple spread a little more creative and fun.

At the end of each year (and at the end of each journal), I rewrite the goals I started with and list out what worked and what didn’t. It’s a super helpful practice to keep on track and, speaking of, I always check back to this page regularly throughout the year to remind myself of my goals.

Blog goals

I really enjoy having a visual representation of where I’m at for my blogging goals for the year – for both this blog and my business blog. I’ve included this one in every journal and also play around with the design each year.

Savings goals

Splitting the page with blog goals, this is a new spread for this year and I’m so excited to have it! Since we’re adding a little one this year, money’s on the brain more than ever. Having this visual savings goal spread is going to be a game-changer, for sure!

What pages did you include in your 2019 journal setup? Tell us in the comment section below!

Born/bred in MD. Raised in ME. Transplant to FL. Entrepreneur, wife, mama, writer, puppy momma, Scorpio, fitness/nutrition enthusiast, eternal optimist.
I’m a strong, passionate, intense woman who has a thirst for life, knowledge, love, and the never-ending question of the meaning of life. I figure I’m bound to find it sooner or later.
