When you are first starting your bullet journal there is a massive appeal to going all out with your design and layouts. I actually recommend against doing that. I recommend that you start off with easy designs and layouts at first. I’m sharing some visually appealing easy bullet journal weekly spreads that anyone can do.

The big reason why I recommend you go with easy simple designs at first is because you still need to figure out what works for you. It’s easy for us to add every spread under the sun to our bullet journal and then be completely overwhelmed by it all.

In the beginning it’s really easy to fall out of the habit of using a bullet journal when you have to put so much work into it. So instead of doing a bunch of different layouts, collections, and spreads. Start off small and gradually add to it.

You could find that the daily spreads are just too much space while the weekly spreads are the perfect planning size. You could figure out that you don’t use a weekly spread all that often. It all boils down to making your bullet journal work for you.

Bullet journaling should be soothing and fun. If your bullet journal is stressing you out because you’re trying to create intricate designs, it’s probably doing more harm than good. Take a step back do some minimalist spreads or easy spreads like the ones I’m featuring here and slowly step into the world of creative bullet journaling.

How To Use A Bullet Journal Weekly Spread

The weekly spread is mostly a snapshot of your week ahead. It holds appointments, important notes, and things you want to get done that week. It’s not meant to be a place for journaling but a place to plan everything out.

The weekly spread is usually never large enough to hold things like journaling. If you are trying to use your bullet journal as a journal as well you will most likely need daily spreads for that.

The way I use my weekly spread is a precursor to plan out the weeks ahead without yet needing to fill in all my daily needs. I have put my weekly spreads back to back through the month and then filled in daily spreads as I go but recently I use a weekly spread at the beginning of the week and plan out my daily spreads.

Ultimately how you use your weekly spread is up to you.

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

This spread is extremely simple with a couple pops of color. You can do something similar and use stickers or washi tape for a pop of color on yours. Or take away that pop of color all together. This spread will take no more than a couple of minutes to set up.
