A bullet journal is more than a to-do list. It's also a planner and a diary, making it perfect for tracking day-to-day tasks and activities, big goals, smaller goals, ideas, and inspirations. Any blank notebook or small sketchbook will work.

Most bullet journals begin with an index (found at the end of other books). You just set aside a couple of pages at the beginning, then list topics and page numbers as you add to your journal. Many bullet journals include calendars, monthly and daily to-do lists, even space for diary entries and drawings.

Life can be busy! A bullet journal can help you stay organized, refocus, and recharge. P.S. These handy (and fun!) journals can help you stay organized around college planning and application deadlines.
