Bullet Journaling 101


In this interview, I chat with Jessica Chung of @prettyprintsandpaper about bullet journaling! I used to be kind of against bullet journaling but now I am totally HOOKED!

Check out the video bellow to watch the interview for yourself and then scroll on down a bit for my key takeaways!


  • What bullet journaling even is (in case you still aren’t sure!)
  • How to get your bullet journal started
  • What tools and supplies you’ll need TO get started
  • Why you should go from “big to small” (and what that even means)
  • Why you don’t have to feel overwhelmed by all the bullet journal inspo on Instagram
  • How you can totally customize your journal
  • What “rapid logging”, “dutch door” and “planner peace” mean
  • And so much more!!


  1. You don’t need a specific type of journal (i.e.: a dot grid journal) to start! Any journal you have will work fine.
  2. Embrace whatever it is that makes YOU work! Whatever styles and/or layouts that work for someone else might not work for you!
  3. Don’t be afraid to mess up! If you don’t like how something works, you have a new opportunity to try something new with a flip of a page!

Like this episode?! I’d be SO GRATEFUL if you’d leave a comment on the video!


  1. This video is ideal for anyone who wants to start bullet journal. I watched a lot of youtube videos on bullet journal but Jessica’s advice is splendid and useful.

Tell me what you thought!
