October 2020 | bullet journal set-up ideas

Hey there! Another fine day in October. And guess what I’ve got for you? ding ding. Yeah, a short trip through my October bullet journal set-up. My October spread is my favorite spread so far and I thought it would be great to share with you guys. You are granted my permission to copy this spread into your own bujo 😉. So let’s get into it, shall we?

So unlike my usual Halloween themed spreads this October I decided to include the cozy elements of October to my spread. So I went for shades of beige and black to get that warm aesthetic.  And my main element for this month’s spread was paper bags, which have a very textured faded brown color. And that color screams October.

So for the October cover page, I went for very boho and vintage vibes. I tore off a piece from my paper bag and crumbled it to create a wrinkled texture on the paper.  On this wrinkled paper strip, I lettered October using my black brush pens and glued it into my bujo. Then I tore off a little piece of newspaper glued it under the October sign before it dries. I also made a little calendar under the title with a wrinkled brown paper as a header. I then drew some flowers on the top of our title using my black gel pen. Yeah, that’s all for my cover. It was a very easy and quick cover page.

Monthly log

So this the monthly log I did for October. I went a bit minimal for this monthly log. So I did the title just like my main title on the cover page, but smaller. I drew my monthly calendar with enough space to add the events to come this month. also, I made a section under the title goals to write down my goal for October.

Mood tracker

Same title style with brown paper for mood tracker too, but with a small piece of newspaper beside it for complementing the theme Of the month.

In order to track my mood, I drew these lines vertically on a slightly tinted paper and randomly added 30 black dots for each day of the month. And every day in accordance with my mood I will add a full-bloomed flower (😀), flower bud (😐), or a dried flower (😕) on the dot assigned to that day, easy!.

Habit tracker.

For the habit tracker for this month, I cut little squares from the tinted paper I used earlier and drew calendars on it. Then I added the title of the habit I wanted to practice this month. Then stick these habit checklist randomly in my journal.  I used some brown papers to fill in the gaps between them. And whenever I completed a habit I will circle it off.

Ps: if you don’t have any tinted paper, you could use any coloured paper of similar shade.

Pps: If you don’t even have colored paper you could leave a plain paper under direct sunlight to make it tinted…
