If you haven’t got time to draw, decorate or doodle your way to a beautiful weekly spread this week, don’t worry – I’ve got you covered. With just a pen and a roll of your favourite tape, you can create one (or all four!) of these weeklies in no time at all.
What is a weekly spread?
My favourite part of a bullet journal is the weekly spread. Although it’s not officially included in the original bujo set up, it’s a really great way of keeping track of your week. If you’re not convinced then why not give it a try next week?
With a column for each of the next seven days and extra space to jot down tasks and upcoming activities for the following week, it’s the perfect way to be organised from your Monday right through to the next Sunday (and beyond!).
Not only that, as preparation for your upcoming week, you can pre-fill any appointments you may have, any tasks that need completing or things you need to remember. As you go through the week, things can be added or ticked off as necessary. If you don’t manage to get something done, you can easily migrate it to the following week.
A weekly spread will really help to keep on top of things aaaaand if you’re in the habit of forgetting things *raises hand* then this is the spread for you.
Each weekly spread below only took me 15 minutes or so to put together. So you can get down to the nitty gritty of planning your week ASAP!
You Will Need:
Washi tape (in any design and as many rolls as you like!)
Fine artist pen
And that’s all you need, so let’s get started…
I used a stencil for the lettering but you could just as easily go freehand. Simply write out your days of the week in a horizontal line, cut a few triangles from your roll of washi tape and that’s it – productivity, here I come!
Out of the four spreads, this one took a little more effort but only because I had to cut up a few more shapes from the roll of tape. I’m really liking using triangles this month!I was really happy with the combination of metallic and patterned washi tape. I’ll definitely be using this spread again soon!
The most basic of the four weekly spreads, I used a diagonal print washi tape and cut narrow strips to separate the days of the week. Even though it’s a simple design, there is lots of space to jot down daily tasks, appointments, memories or doodles – whatever you need to stay productive!
Pretty and functional, I used strips of washi tape to divide up the sections and add a splash of colour to this spread.
So if you’re in a hurry or you just don’t feel like being creative this week then grab a roll or two of washi tape, a pen and you’re all set to recreate one of these awesome spreads above!
