March Bullet Journal Set Up

I'm so excited to be sharing my February review and March Bullet Journal set-up today!

I don’t know about you, but February has flown by for me! I know that it’s a short month and all, but to me it feels like the middle of the month still. So imagine my shock when I opened up my editorial calendar only to realize that it was time for a monthly Plan With Me!

For over a year now, I’ve been doing monthly “Plan With Me” videos over on YouTube. I absolutely love filming these videos every month, and I thought it would be fun to bring a little of that joy over to the blog!

So today, I’ll be catching you up on all of the new and fun things in my Bullet Journal during the month of February as well as showing you my set-up for March. Ready? Let’s go!

FEBRUARY REVIEW

February has been quite the busy month for me. After returning from Bali in January, I set out to accomplish some of the big goals that have been looming unfinished for quite some time.

The first big goal was to get off my butt already and go rent an office space! I’ve known for a long time that this is what needed to happen in order for me to continue to grow my business. Once that was done, I was finally free to reach out and hire my first local employee… talk about HUGE leaps this month!

As if all of that wasn’t enough already, I thought it would be fun to do a One Month in my Bullet Journal video series, documenting every single thing that went into my journal during the month of February.

Oh, and did I mention that I finally tackled that other big goal of hiring a personal trainer? Yup! Starting on Monday, I’ll be working out with the fabulous Marissa Herbstler 6 times a week!

Somehow, I’ve managed to keep up with it all and I even squeezed a “Me Day” in there. I’d say February has been quite the success!

 MARCH SET UP

I decided to keep my March Bullet Journal setup pretty simple this month.

I'm so excited to be sharing my February review and March Bullet Journal set-up today!

On the left side of the page, I’ll be setting up my traditional monthly log. On the right, I’m keeping my “One Line a Day” spread. It was SO fun to write down one little thing each day during the month of February and I’m looking forward to filling up March as well.

I decided to keep my Gratitude Log to one page this month. In hindsight, I probably should have made it a two-page spread since March is a longer month, but we’ll see how it goes! I can always add another page if I run out of space.

On the right, I have my monthly Tracker and Self-Care Tracker. These have been serving me well the past few months, so I’m excited to keep them as well :)

I eliminated my Time Log altogether. I began keeping track of my time a few months ago with the intention of finding out where the heck all of my time was going. After tracking and analyzing my time for a few months, I now have a very good understanding of where I’m spending my time, and what I need to do to start gaining a little bit of work-life balance back.

I'm so excited to be sharing my February review and March Bullet Journal set-up today!

The final spread that I set up for March is my Mood Mandala.  I was heavily inspired by Fiona (@Bujo.Mama on Instagram) a few months ago to try out this brilliant mood tracker. It has quickly become my favorite spread in my journal each month, and I can’t wait to watch it fill up!

PS – I have a FREE printable Mandala Template available in the Tribe Resource Library. If you’re not a Tribe Member yet, you can sign up right here :)


That’s it! Short and sweet for this month’s set-up! I’ll be starting in with my weekly and daily spreads on the very next page :) Be sure to check out today’s Plan With Me video below to watch the set-up process :) See y’all soon!

    Always something to learn and incorporate when I watch your videos- thank you!

  • I was just drawing out March this morning! I love the mood mandala, I’m definitely adding that for March!

  • Jan Barlow

    I have had the MOST fun with the mood mandala as well. It’s also my favorite page to play with each day. My 7 y/o granddaughter has been planning with ME this past month and I can’t wait to surprise her with her own mood mandala to put in her book and start for March. She just LOVES to sit down next to me and do what I do in my journal each day from tracking, to “to-do’s” to daily pages. Her “to-do” lists always make me chuckle. ♥ I love that she loves it – it will serve her well someday! :)
    I’m SO inspired by you (my bujo is set up very much like yours) and I love watching your videos! I’m off Facebook now and find myself on your blog more often. I do have one suggestion, sweet Kara. The fancy writing at the top of your blog page is pretty, but very difficult to read. Maybe make it so it’s not in all caps or a slightly different font? Love all you share! :)

    Instead of a mood mandala, I like making it a temperature mandala for the month. Yours are always so beautiful. Thank You for all the inspiration.

  • Peggy Coffey

    You have inspired me to revamp my planner. My husband retired and it completely discombobulated my planning. Now that we have both made our adjustment to the new normal, I’m back with my bujo planning. It gives us both the room and structure we need. I’m ready for March!

  • Iva @ This Side of Perfect

    Most favorite part of this video: you messed up and kept on going. As a perpetual perfectionist, this makes me very happy. I love your March spread – it is so inspirational!

  • DiAnn Iverson

    Thank you Kara for doing the daily video. I’m new to bullet journaling and it has been really helpful to watch you every morning. Not only am I getting more tasks completed each day but I get to create!
