Well, Hello, 2020! // January Bullet Journal Setup


Well… 2020. You have a ring to ya!

Happy New Year, friends!

Have you ever accidentally taking a break? Well, I believe that hath happened to me the fine December past. XD Whoops!

Well, I’m back now, and I have a new bullet journal I really wanted to break in.

To start out, I want to show you my 2020 bujo! I’m thinking of a name, any suggestions?

I really wanted an Archer and Oliveย bullet journal. They’re just so beautiful, but they were constantly sold out, and they came back in stock the other day, but I wouldn’t have gotten one until mid-way through January, so maybe next year!

I found, after searching for “like journals” I found this Tekukor bullet journal on Amazon. Actually, i’m very well impressed. It’s very much similar to the A+O bullet journals: cloth cover with gold embossed design, 160 gsm paper (Ahh) and 192 dot grid pages. And it came in two days! (Can we take a moment to appreciate Amazon prime??)

If you’re thinking about getting a bullet journal, so far this, and Minimalism Art, are great ones!


There’s always that one first page where only one side has dots, so I just put a opening page. I used a black Tombow dual brush pen, a hard tip (my sweet) Tombow fudenosuke brush pen, and a white signo broad gel pen.


I added a short quote to start off the year, “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are” by Roosevelt.

To the right I have my “year at a glance” page.


I use certain color for different things, such as Holidays, Events, and Birthdays. It’s also helpful for me to see what days are on what days of the week and such. I refer to it a lot throughout the year, it’s very helpful!


Ah, now January, at last!

I used a little flower theme I made up I call “September” (you can see it here). I liked it best from 2019, so I chose it again for January. I put my calendar to the right, though I only fit 24 squares on the one page so could have enough room.


I stretched the remaining days over to the next pages. Since I had extra room at the bottom, I put the goals froms the month of January down there, and added the same leaves as in the previous page.

My habits for the month (to the right) include 5 or more cups of water, reading my bible daily, practice all my instruments *sweats*, and my daily skin routine.


I made a “to do” page and a “reminders” page side by side. I like how neat and simple it looks (now, at least. XD)


This is my monthly money tracker, I started this in November and I really like it. It’s helpful to see the amount I spend and save.


I made a page for books I want to read in 2020, so I’m hoping the books on these shelves will all have titles soon! I made this page into bookshelf form. It makes me happy to glance upon.


My January letter tracker has the same green vine as the opening page, but otherwise, it’s fairly simple! I check the little “stamp” in the corner when I’ve responded. It’s very helpful for me, I often get lost in responding quickly or knowing ifย  I have or not. I wonder if I’ve ever sent a pen pal two letters with the same content. XD


This is a new page I’ve added to my bullet journaling. I needed something to help me track savings, and what I’m saving for. I hope to meet my goals by 2021!


My last pages are (left) my January blog post ideas page. I have a lot of ideas for the new year, but please be sure to let me know what you want to see! the next page, instead of “resolutions” I put 2020 hopes. (I don’t know, something about the word resolutions…)


I hope y’all enjoyed seeing this, and let me know what you’re looking forward to for 2019–no, (ugh, we’re in for about 4 months of this. XD) 2020!

I hope you’re having a wonderful day!

  1. What a cute bullet journal, AK!! My favorite page is the one that you used the “September” theme. So cute!! I cannot believe that it’s already 2020. Time flies by so fast!

    1. Thank you so much! Isn’t bullet journaling great? I love having everything all in one place, that’s my favorite part. Rather than having everything in separate books, a planner here, calendar there, you can keep everything together and include all your lists and things to do. Oh thank you! I like the bookshelf page, too. (:
