Bullet Journal Basics

I've been slowly working on getting my bullet journal started for a few months now.

Now when I say slowly, I mean slowly. Agonizingly slowly. Ridiculously slowly. So slowly that half the year will be done by the time I'm finished getting things set up (which, incidentally, is why I gave up on doing it quickly and I'm focusing on doing it well - the plan is to have it last a year and a half now).

Of course, the advantage of doing it slowly is that I'm really finding what I want in it, and what I don't.

I am not:
  • Making it a weekly planner. I like my planner from Erin Condren, and I plan on hanging onto it.
  • Having it become a daily grind list book. 
  • Charting my daily moods. There's no way I'll keep it up, so I'll end up frustrating myself and staring at blank pages.
The pages I AM working on are:
  •  Meal ideas and tracking. I need to find a way to both inspire myself and see where we're getting stuck.
  • Car upkeep (for both the end of my current car's life and to track the new one)
  • Long term lists (wish list for the house, for myself, for our homeschool, projects to tackle)
  • Tracking for random things (when I last did those "major" jobs, like the pantry, laundry closet, etc.)
  • Ideas - for co op classes, writing ideas, things I'd like to try.
I'm anticipating I'll have things put together in the next couple of weeks, and then I'll probably work out the kinks, but I love the idea of creating something that's useful!
