Fun Fact: Weekly logs were not originally included in the original bullet journal setup!
The Bullet Journal system started way back in 2016 and although it didn’t include the weekly log, bujo enthusiasts the world over have ensured that the weeklies have become an integral part of a functional Bujo. PS: The weekly log is widely known as ‘weeklies’.
Basically, weeklies have the exact same function of a monthly spread, but using only one week at a time, a ‘week-at-a-glance’ if you will. You can plan out the next seven days in detail, covering your schedule, appointments, deadlines, goals, and other information you want to add. It’s sometimes used in place of dailies, and sometimes it’s used in place of monthlies. Some people like using monthlies, weeklies, and dailies. Personally, I find that to be a bit of an overkill, but if it works for you, then more power to you. There’s no planner police here!
To set up your weekly spread, you can either use a single or two facing pages. It can be vertical or horizontal, plain or creative. You decide! I cannot stress this enough, do what works for you!
There are a million fun ways to set up weeklies, we’ve pinned loads of ideas to our Pinterest board Bullet Journal Weekly Spreads along with some guides and hacks on how to achieve a functional and well laid out spread!
