When I started bullet journaling, a few years ago, I honestly didn’t think I’d ever go back to using a traditional pre-designed planner! I love the freedom of the blank notebook and the simplicity and speed of daily logging. But, I’ve found myself craving a little more structure and a faster, more practical way to plan for the future. So, after researching traditional planners I’ve decided to spend a few months experimenting with a Classic Happy Planner. What I’ve discovered is that it’s possible to use a Happy Planner to be a more creative and productive bullet journaler. I’m sharing how I created my ‘Happy Planner Bullet Journal’ and the methods I’m using for planning and journaling.
