Welcoming in the New Year with a New Bullet Journal

After a very successful 2 month trial of the Bullet Journal system, I’m pleased to say my old wirebound Clairefontaine journal is being retired in ¬†favour of a Rhodia Webnotebook. The Clairefontaine will now enjoy a second life for holding all my review notes for work. The paper is an off white dot grid that feels thinner than the Clairefontaine notebook paper, which is strange because both are supposed to be made from 90g Clairefontaine. Since the new notebook isn’t exactly pocket friendly, a 3.5″ x 5.5″ Davis Leatherwork notebook cover that is currently loaded with Fabriano Eco Qua has taken up pocket duty. I have a hand written review of the Eco Qua paper I will be polishing up with some typed content that I will be uploading shortly!

It’s me, not you, I swear! However, the Bullet Journal system has been going really well for me. I’m not 100% sure on why it has managed to work so well for me, but it does! I think everyone should give it a try for a week or two.
