A future log in a bullet journal is essentially a place to organize more than one month at a glance. The official bullet journal set up includes one, however I do not use one in my personal bullet journal for a few reasons. First of all, I don’t really have that much going on in my life right now as far as events. I’m pretty much a hermit with 5 little kids and an addiction to writing so I stay home, sip hot tasty drinks, and do tasks. I have a LOT of tasks in my day, very very few events. For this reason, I got rid of the future log entirely in my personal BUJO and instead have put it in my business BUJO and am using it as an editorial calendar.
This works GREAT for me because I can see at a glance my calendar, set up reviews as product comes in, and write in any important meetings or events that may be related to my business. I purchased 2 Leuchtturm1917 journals and they actually fit in my extra wide leather Traveler’s Notebook (get 10% off if you use coupon code HipHome2).
How to Set up Your Bullet Journal Future Log.
There are so many ways to set this up and no real rules. You can have it with just one or two months and more space for each day if you have a lot of events or things you want to put in it (like kids’ activities, etc.), or you can simply have it with 2-4 months and just 1 box per day if you are using it like I am. The beauty of bullet journaling is that you can do whatever works for YOU. If it works for you and you can find a use for it, great! If not, scrap that idea and try something else entirely! This week I’ll be sharing how I used windows in the top of my pages to show a week at a glance for some time (and why I am not going to be continuing).
Don’t forget to follow my bullet journal ideas board on Pinterest, this is where I post all my inspiration and a great place to see some new layouts, collections, and spreads. I also have a new Instagram feature account for all things planning: planninginspiration4u PLUS I’m on Periscope every Monday to take you through my planning pages for the week. This week is all about brush lettering, eeek!
