Hello! I didn’t actually expect that many people to request this and I was going to make this anyways soooo… Let’s get to it!
Before we get started to actually making the spread, you first need to answer the following:
- Do I want to follow a theme?
- If so, what theme do I want?
- What are the things that motivate me?
- Are there certain people that motivate me?
- Do I want to plan my weekends?
My weekly spread isn’t the same every week and I change some things very often because I feel like it’s necessary to do so but I’m not one to change my over all color scheme very often although there are some studygrams who change theirs every week. It’s hard to keep on changing your theme if you are a studyblr so I suggest to stick to one for a long time. It’s not necessary to have one but it makes it more neat and pleasing in the eyes and makes it look more organized. I don’t know what they’re originally called, but I call them ‘space-fillers’ mainly because they fill up space (duh). To sum it up, these are basically little things you can add to your bujo to make it more handy and useful. (* - my favorites) Some examples are:
- Weekly Playlist*
- Sleep Tracker
- Water Count
- Thought of The Day (TOTD)*
- Quote of The Day (QOTD)
- Daily Mood
- Weekly Expenses
- What I Eat in a Day*
I want to make this clear, because I live in the Philippines, I don’t really have access to expensive stationeries that you could always see on tumblr and instagram such as Tombows, Muji pens, Artline Stix, and Mildliners. I know that there are some MUJI branches in Manila but it would mean climbing Mt. Everest, crossing the Han River, and spending your life savings. Not worth it (in my opinion because I’m like 14 who basically depends on her parents). So, learn to use what you have and supplies are just supplies. Expensive stationery don’t equal to immediately having beautiful lettering. I just use the Faber Castel ones but depending on where you live, these might not be available for you. I use it because it’s cheaper and does the job. Although the tips do fray overtime, you’re still getting more than what you paid for. So definitely a must-try.
Before we start. Checklist (* - optional)
- Washi Tape*
- Colored Paper*
(I didn’t list any specific brands because you can always substitute supplies)
Okay and now we can finally start!
