Plan With Me: March Dashboard Setup

Hello March!  I am very excited about March for a number of reasons: it’s a new month in my bullet journal where I get to try out a bunch of new ideas, it’s my birthday month, it’s one month closer to the long beautiful warm days of summer, spring is about to start in full swing, and it’s one month closer to meeting my baby!  There is so much to look forward to 🙂

After all of the trial and error and learning about bullet journaling in February, I have set up my March ‘dashboard’ to start the month off right.  Well, right for me anyway!  But that’s the great thing about bullet journaling, you can pick and choose, combine, eliminate, and make it your own.

The biggest improvement in my journal was beginning the month with a dashboard.  I have multiple pages that I’ll be using all month long: Monthly Spread, March Memories, Habit Tracker, Baby Weight, Wellness, Smile Log, Brain Dump, Next Month (I want to change), and the Plan With Me Challenge.  I put all of these pages at the beginning of the month and folded wash tape over the edge for easy locating.

If you have the opportunity, please check out the March Setup video that I made.

In case you can’t watch the video, here are some photos of the various pages along with a short explanation.

The biggest change is the dashboard itself.  As I added pages in February, I found myself spending too much time searching for them.  This month, I wanted them all in one place in the journal and each page has washi tape folded over the edge so that I can easily flip to them.  After the dashboard I’ll start my daily pages, new collections, and random pages here and there until April comes.

Monthly Spread: Kept it the same as February.  I have a column for all day, appointments or events, and weekly tasks.  I also kept the monthly tasks and weekly tracker sections.

March Memories: This is my first time doing a monthly memories page and I’m really looking forward to it!  As it gets filled in, I’ll share an update.

Habit Tracker: One of my absolute favorite bullet journal pages!  Thank you Kara (Boho Berry)!  I updated the daily tasks but kept the basics of it the same.  Last month, I had too many numbers, so this time it’s only going to be color fills.

Baby Weight: Kept it the same as last month because it worked really well for tracking my pregnancy weight gain.

Wellness: This is a big change from last month.  I’m going to graph my radar chart wellness scores here as a bar graph.  I’m excited to see how it fills up!

Smile Log: Basic gratitude log.

Brain Dump: For random thoughts, tasks without a deadline, etc.

Next Month (I want to change): I loved this page last month so I kept it.  As I find things that I want to change in my bullet journal, I jot them down here.  That way, when setting up for April, I have a quick reference of all the ideas and changes that I want to implement.

Plan With Me Challenge: This is my first month doing the #PlanWithMeChallenge and I’m really excited to join in.  I’ve had a blast seeing everyone’s submissions!  Please check out the hosts! Tiny Ray of Sunshine, Pretty Prints and Paper, and Boho Berry.

The supplies I used in the video and photos above are the following:*
My BuJo: Leuchtturm Medium Hardcover Dots Lemon
Pens for color: Staedtler Triplus Fineliner
Writing pen: Sakura Micron-01

Happy Journaling!
