Bullet Journaling at Scotch Plains Public Library

Scotch Plains Library

SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- ​Learn all about the new Bullet Journaling organizational craze and how it can transform your life on Thursday, August 24, at 7:00 p.m. 

A bullet journal is a completely customizable system for keeping all of your calendars, lists, plans, and reflections in one place. Although the bullet journal can inspire your creativity and increase your productivity, the biggest benefit is the freedom you experience when you externalize your memory. When you can properly visualize everything in your brain come to life in one convenient journal, you free up your most valuable resource – head space!

At this workshop, Allison Weigel will teach you how to set up a bullet journal and how to customize it for your needs. You will also learn tips and tricks to help you get started. It is recommended that you bring your current calendar/organizer/journals with you, and that you bring a blank notebook with you (you may wish to bring a notebook with grid/graph paper, as many bullet journals use that type of paper, but it is not necessary).
