The first time I saw the timeline was on Boho Berry and I really liked the idea.
What is a timeline?
A time-tracker for your day, so you can schedule and plan all events and tasks that are time-sensitive.
What’s the purpose?
Having a timeline allows you to have a glance of how much free-time is left in the day, and adjust accordingly (removing or adding tasks).
Pros and cons
The pros are almost all said — you can have a better idea of what your day is going to look like, you can see how much time you will actually have to do the tasks you have scheduled, and, of course, it looks more organised. But there are cons, like the inflexibility that a time-based schedule gives (which can be helpful for some people, but it just drives me crazy) and it takes up some space, after all.
I wanted to post something different, so here it goes: some layout ideas, to be a series. Once a month I’ll post some new layouts here for you guys to get come inspiration.
The first one I posted (June weeklies) so you can see it there, in detail.
I had a similar layout in may, that you can see here:
The second one is a part of the next post (about the timeline), in which we have the days of the week on top, weather info, to-do list for the days with marks for the time-sensitive tasks as well as a shopping list, a master to-do and a tracker. Nothing new here.
And in the last one we have the weeks on the first page and all other info on the second page. I love this minimalist style, I’ll try for my next weeklies.

I have used the Bullet Journal system for three months now (somehow, it seems more than that) and I can already see some things that do not work for me.
For instance, complex headers or colored weather. Most of my stationary never leaves home, I only carry a black pen (UniPin 0.05) and that has to do. When I started bullet journalling, I always carried something like: a black pen, mechanical pencil, eraser, lots of post-its and markers, and washi tape. And I never use them, because when I’m out, I have no time or place to work properly on my bujo, just ended up with a sore shoulder. Now that I stopped doing that, I’m feeling a lot better and my spreads are also prettier. Before, there was just too much going on, now it’s simple and I can focus in what matters.
Another thing that is not working how I planned is my health tracker. I added it in april to help me track my shoulder pain (I have been in a car accident in 2012, and I’m in pain since) and my RSI (repetitive strain injury). But I just.. don’t use it. Maybe because it’s not inside my monthly calendar, so I just don’t see it and don’t remember to fill it every time I’m in pain. Maybe in my next bujo I’ll try to merge it in my weeklies or something like that.
And that is it. The great thing about the bullet journal is that you can simply try to make things work, and if they don’t, there are no hard feelings about it, you’ll try something else. 😀
