Keeping with our perfect spreads for beginners theme we are going to cover some easy bullet journal monthly spreads. Easy monthly spreads are great for more than just beginners. Bullet journalers who want a minimalist or simple look for ease of creation can take advantage of the easy to duplicate spreads.

I highly recommend that bullet journal beginners go with minimalist spreads and layouts for at least the first month or so. By keeping things simple while you are first getting into the habit of using your bullet journal you are less likely to feel overwhelmed and give up.

Bullet journaling is an amazing creative outlet as well as productivity tool in your daily life. In order to reap all the benefits a bullet journal can give you, first you need to get into the habit of working in it daily.

You may find that you don’t need a large monthly spread that gets filled in but rather a one page spread for a quick go to for date reference. You may find the monthly spread is a great way to keep track of events to add to your daily spreads. Skipping the monthly spread entirely you may just want a one page weekly spread and daily spreads.

While you are figuring out which spreads work best for you in these beginning stages keep them simple till you make the decision on which ones you really want to keep.

How To Fill Out Your Monthly Spread

Just like with other planner spreads how you use it is completely up to you. I personally use the monthly spread as a way to track birthdays, events, appointments, and various important tasks.

Some people like to add notes, monthly goals, or monthly long trackers to their monthly spreads. While others create a different spreads for these things. It’s really all about what works best for you and your needs.

There are people who do the monthly spread only to have a spot to be extra creative. The monthly spread is usually where you start a new theme for the month so it makes sense that it would be a great place for extra creativity.

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