My 2021 Bullet Journal Setup || Bullet Journaling

Hello friends! It’s 2021, can you believe it! Welcome to my 2021 bullet journal set up! In this blogpost, I’ll be sharing with you a flip through of my completed bullet journal, but if  you would like to see the process of me setting it up, I filmed the whole process and there’s a video up on my YouTube channel now that you can go watch! I’ll link it at the end of this blogpost as well.

Setting Up My 2021 Bullet Journal

The supplies I used this month are very similar to the ones that I have used previously: the Michaels Dot Grid Notebook, the Pentel Energel 0.7 black pen, and the Zebra Mildliners, but this year, I’m also using the Neutral Portrait 10-Pack of Tombow Dual Brush Pens, which I got for Christmas and that I’m super excited about!

Some links are affiliate.

To start off, this is the bullet journal that I’ll be using: I’ve decorated it with some stickers from Redbubble and etsy such as this one (the rest are gifts so I’m not sure where they’re from).

The first couple spreads in my 2021 bullet journal are my index and grid spacing chart, exactly like the ones I made last year, so I’m not going to show them. The one after that is my 2021 future log: I’m super pleased with how it turned out, and while it’s super time consuming to make, it’s also my favorite spread every year.

After that, I have a couple of my yearly trackers, as well as my 2021 New Years Goals and Resolutions page. The left column of the yearly tracker is my photo-a-day tracker, which is a habit that I love keeping up, and the right column will be a very similar one, but one to track my reading instead. My goals and resolutions spread is the same as the one from last year: I felt it worked really well for me so I just duplicated it this year.DSC_0018

Next up are some spreads that are new, which I’ll be trying out this year! Instead of doing monthly habit trackers like I have been in the past, this year, I’m going to be trying out yearly habit trackers! It will save me the time of setting it up every month, and I think that being able to see habits tracked throughout the whole year will really motivate me and keep me on track with them!

They are structured like the photo-a-day one, with the months of the year written across the top and the days of the month going down the side. I’ll make a colored dot if I complete the habit that day, and I’m really looking forwards to seeing my habits tracked across a whole year!DSC_0020

Next up is my TBR and my 2021 favorites spread. 2020 wasn’t a great reading year for me, and so I really want to make an effort to read as much in 2021 as I can. On the left, I’ll be writing in books that I want to read, and on the right, I’ll be writing in books that I have read and enjoyed. I will also make another spread to track all the books that I’ve read this year, but it definitely won’t be as elaborate as this spread!DSC_0023

After that is my address book and happy mail tracker! In 2020 I really fell back in love with the art of pen-palling, and I wanted a place to track the addresses of the people I’m writing to, as well as when I wrote to them. On the left is my address book, where I’ll write the name of the person in the envelope “flap,” and their address in the envelope “body.” On the right is my happy mail tracker, with the columns “recipient,” “from,” “sent,” and “notes” to track the letters that I’ve received and sent out. I’m super excited to keep writing letters in the new year, and this spread will be perfect for organizing it!DSC_0025

After that is my social media growth tracker, as well as my blogpost tracker. Like last year, my Instagram growth tracker is in the shape of the notifications on Instagram, which I’ll color in as I hit milestones. My YouTube growth tracker is similar, except instead of Instagram notifications, I’ll be coloring in play buttons.

My goal for the year is to put out 24 blog posts and 12 videos, so the circles at the bottom of the YouTube tracker, as well as the entire spread on the right, is for tracking that. I’ll be able to mark whether I’ve put out a video, as well as write in the title of the blogposts that I publish.DSC_0029

Next up is my minimalism tracker. This is the least thought out spread I have, but on the left side, I’m tracking my decluttering process (the beginning of which I’ve been logging over on my Instagram) and on the right, I have a wishlist of things I want, so that I hopefully won’t impulse purchase as much.

The last spread that I’ll be sharing is my January monthly layout! I’m really pleased with how it turned out: now that I don’t have as many monthly habits to track, it’s much easier to make it pretty. At least, that’s what I think. This year, my goal is to focus on making my bullet journal more usable, and I definitely also want to make it prettier as well!DSC_0033

So that’s a flipthrough of the bullet journal I’ll be using for 2021! Like promised, here is the video of me setting it up:


So that’s my bullet journal for 2021! What was your favorite spread? Are you trying out any new trackers in 2021? What is your favorite stationery product? Leave me a comment and let me know!

    Ahh I love your color scheme and your beautiful artwork!!! I did a very minimalist, only-what-I-need approach because I tend to make a bunch of spreads that I don’t ever use. But I got some pretty pens that spruce things up 🙂 Wishing you all the best in 2021!
