If you are just starting out on your bullet journal journey you may be looking for a few easier designs. The last thing anyone likes doing is putting time into something that they aren’t going to stick to using. I’ve put together a fantastic list of minimalist bullet journal pages to help you get started and get into the habit of using your bullet journal.


A minimalist bullet journal spread usually just focuses on the tasks that need to be accomplished. There aren’t fancy colors and the look can usually be accomplished with a ruler and a pen.

The most appealing part of having a minimalist bullet journal is they are easy to read, easy to follow, and don’t take a lot of time setting up. If you aren’t a doodler the minimalist bullet journal might be for you.

Before we get started here is a list of my recommended supplies.

Bullet Journal Success

The key to bullet journal success is making sure you get in the habit of using it daily. First use it for only the really important things, like tracking your schedule. Then later slowly add in extra pages and trackers to use.

If it’s not helpful you don’t need to keep it in your bullet journal. At this point my bullet journal is simply a place to right down my thoughts, plan out, brainstorm, and keep a gratitude log. That is what keeps it super useful to me so that is how I use it.

Your bullet journal could just be a place to keep you on track with your goals. It could only track habits. Or it could be everything you need in once place.
