What Makes A Good Bullet Journal Collection? 52 Ideas To Try!

Once you’ve got the fundamentals of your Bullet Journal sorted, the next step is to decide what collections you want to add!

What is a Bullet Journal Collection?

A Bullet Journal collection is a page (or group of pages) in your journal that are dedicated to a particular topic. i.e. Reading, Movies, Music, etc.

The pages could be physically clustered together, denoted via page numbers in the index, or colour coded with Washi tape.

How Do I Decide What Collections To Include?

The collections you include in your journal will totally depend on your individual hobbies, goals and lifestyle! For example, there would be no point in me adding a reading tracker, just because I like the look of spreads that I’ve seen on social media. I just don’t read enough to warrant a page in my journal dedicated to it!

Three Questions To Ask…

Whenever you are considering adding a spread to your bullet journal, ask yourself these three questions:

  1. Will I use it?
  2. Is it useful to me?
  3. Will it bring me joy?

If you don’t answer yes to at least one of these then don’t include it!

I live in Essex in the UK with my gaggle of furry friends including Daisy the dog. I have had lifetime passion/obsession for beautiful stationery and to do lists which has lead me to the wonderful world of Bullet journals. When I first starting bullet journaling it struck me the lack of UK based resources for journal accessories which lead me to create my own. I know have my very own webshop selling my hand made journal stencils and ship all over the world and am just as enthusiastic as I ever was about stationery and organisation!!
