Hello friends! Today I’m sharing my 2022 bullet journal set up! I think this is my 6th year bullet journaling, which is pretty crazy to think about. Setting up my new bullet journal is my favorite part of each year, and I’m excited to be sharing my set up with you this year!

To start off, the supplies that I used this year basically the same as the ones that I’ve used previously. I’m once again using the Michaels Dot Grid Notebook, this year in tope, which I’m very excited about. I love the quality of these notebooks, especially at their price point. As usual, I’m also using the Pentel Energel 0.7 black pen, Zebra Mildliners, and the Neutral Portrait 10-Pack of Tombow Dual Brush Pens. I know there’s a Sharpie gel pen in these photos, but honestly I’m not a fan of them lol and would not recommend.
I used the first few pages for my bullet journal for the index, although the notebook came with a few pages of “index” that I didn’t like the style of.
Next up, I have a grid spacing chart (which I *finally* remembered to put on the left side instead of the right . . . on my seventh bullet journal), as well as my 2022 goals/resolutions. I really like dividing my goals into 5 categories, and using these boxes to denote that has worked really well for me (as in, it works better for me to visualize them, not necessarily achieve them . . . lol).
Instead of a future log, this year I’m doing a memories spread instead, which looks basically the same as the typical futurelog, but instead of using it to prepare for upcoming events, I’ll use it to write down memories from over the course of the month. This is a new spread for me, and I’m excited to see it working! I think it will be much more beneficial to me than a future log, which I don’t ever really use.
Next up, I have some social media and photo trackers. I’ve been taking a photo a day for multiple years in a row, and this tracker is always how I keep track of them! I also have some trackers for Instagram followers and YouTube subscribers (shameless plug: Instagram and YouTube!). On the right side of the spread, I have space to write in the blogposts I write and videos I make, so that I have a way to keep track of what I do over the course of the year.
Next up are my reading trackers. I always forget to fill in these bookshelves spread, so this year I only have one, to track my TBR (books that I want to read this year), as opposed to previous years, where I spent a long time making these bookshelves only to not use them. I also have few pages to write the titles of books that I read over the course of the year.
The spreads after that are for more overall life maintenance. First, I have a financial tracker, just because this is the year I’ll hopefully get a job and start having more money moving in and out. I’m not 100% sure if I’ll use this spread yet, but I’ll have it here so that I can use it if I need to.
Next is my letter/pen pal trackers: on the left side I have an “address book”, where I write in the addresses of my pen pals/people I send mail to the most, and on the right side, I have a tracker of when I have letters to respond to, as well as anything else that I need to remember for my pen pals.
I also have a spread for room renovations: I’ve been slowly redoing my bedroom at home, and this spread will be for all the little tasks that I need to do before my room is fully complete. I have the page split into three categories: decorations, things to buy, and tasks. Having all of the stuff I need to do in once place will really help me keep on top of what needs to be done!
Lastly, I have my first few January spreads. I like my monthly spreads to be functional, while still being cute, so this is the layout I have. There is a section for goals, important dates, habits, and books to read. On the back two pages, I am tracking my sleep and focus tasks, and for the first time, I also have a brain dump page, where I can just put notes and random tasks that I need to achieve over the course of the month.
The weekly spread is where I get the most mileage out of my bullet journal, so I usually keep it pretty basic. It’s basically just a to do list for each day, and what I want to get done over the course of the week. It’s easy but works well for me!
All in all, I’m really pleased with how it turned out and I’m excited to use it this year!
