Tape an envelope to the inside of your bullet journal

Whether it’s to hold washi tape or just to help you stay organized, keep an envelope inside your bullet journal. You may need sticky notes or other supplies that don’t really do well outside of the notebook.

Don’t make it too complicated

The more complicated you make your notebook, the more difficult it will be to keep up with. Keep it simple and straightforward and only journal the things you need to.

Use sticky notes to hold any temporary notes or information

Instead of wasting a page in your journal, use sticky notes for temporary notes or info that you need to hold instead of wasting a whole page.

Learn how to thread

One of the downsides of bullet journaling is that you can sometimes have similar info but on different pages in your notebook. To fix this, “thread” the numbers by adding a note on the bottom page number so you know there is more info on another page.
