Journal Me Organized: The Complete Guide to Practical and Creative Planning

5 out of 5 stars on GoodReads


I got so many wonderful and creative ideas for my planner from this book! I love how the information is organized, with chapters about different planning methods, notebooks, styles, and supplies, along with ideas for doodling, creating lists, using watercolors and acrylics, brush lettering, and even making your own notebooks from scratch.

The beauty of it is that you don’t need fancy paints, pens, or notebooks to use the ideas in this book. You could just as easily set up a planner or bullet journal in a simple lined composition notebook from the dollar store. And the author gives tips about how to set up in a plain composition notebook versus a dot grid notebook.

I love all the different styles of daily, monthly, and yearly spreads! Whether you want a minimalist style or an artistic style, there is something for everyone.
There are even tutorials on how to use paints in a simple, easy way that is accessible to all of us non-artistic people. And there are tutorials on creating your own custom tabs, decorative paper clips, and adding custom pockets in the pages of your journal/planner.

At the back of the book, there are several removable pages with doodles, dividers, and banners that you can trace or copy into your own notebook, and I already traced a few into mine!

I found so many imaginative ideas in this book, with practical tips on actually scheduling, organizing, tracking, and planning. I love it! This book has it all. Literally, everything I was looking for and hoping for… this book has it.
