Bullet Journal Dream Logs (plus templates)

Dream Log

A dream log, aka dream diary or dream journal, is simply a place where you can record your dreams.

According to Wikipedia:  A dream diary is a diary in which dream experiences are recorded. A dream diary might include a record of nightly dreams, personal reflections and waking dream experiences. It is often used in the study of dreams and psychology. Dream diaries are also used by some people as a way to help induce lucid dreams.

Curious to see if my dreams were truly random or there were any patterns I might find useful, I started a dream log of my very own.

The more I log, the easier it is to recall the previous night’s dreams.

11 Bullet Journal Expense Trackers (you’ll want to copy!)

Bullet Journal Expense Tracker

Several years ago, we decided to start tracking our expenses so that we could go on our dream vacation.

After researching various books, articles, and YouTube videos, we decided to keep track of our monthly expenses so we could get a handle on where the money was going.

The first month was strictly writing down every expense. At the end of the month, we could see which categories needed to be reined in and  where we should tighten our belts.

This worked for us because I’m useless when it comes to sticking to a budget but if I know where I need to economize, I’m good. And honestly, knowing that I’d have to write it down made me think twice about those impulse buys!

It worked so well that we’re still keeping a monthly expense tracker! Ours is pretty basic, but I love all of these cute trackers I found online, so going to try and incorporate them into our next tracker!

Bullet Journal Ideas for August

While the official end of summer isn’t until September, I’ve always felt like August is when summer really starts winding down.

Maybe because September is usually back to school time?

Putting together my August bullet journal spreads, I’m always drawn to designs featuring watermelon, cook-outs, and beach scenes.  Anything celebrating the end of summer.

Hopefully you’ll get some inspiration for your own bullet journal spreads from the following examples of August designs.

Birthday Bucket Lists (for your bullet journal)

While I have heard of (and made) a Bucket List, I’ve never heard of a Birthday Bucket List until recently.

Apparently, they’re a thing.

The idea is that you create a list of items you want to complete before your next big birthday, usually one of the milestones.

No reason you couldn’t do one for every birthday, but that seems kind of tiring.

The list can include practically anything:  adventures to go on, tasks to complete, places to visit, people to meet, experiences to try, items to purchase, etc.

Most of the lists I’ve seen have been for the big 3-0, but I’ve also seen 25th, 40th, 50th, and a few 60th birthday bucket lists as well.

The only real “rule” is that the items on your list must match the birthday deadline, as in 30 before 30 or 40 Things To Do Before I Turn 40. Although even that rule is flexible, as I’ve also seen 29 Things Before 30, and 39 Experiences Before I Hit 40 lists as well.

Hey, it’s your birthday bucket list, so your rules!

Since I have a few years before my next milestone birthday, thought I’d try my hand at a Birthday Bucket List for my bullet journal.
