Bullet Journaling at Scotch Plains Public Library

Scotch Plains Library will welcome young eclipse watchers.

SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- It is a new organizational craze and how it can transform your life.

A bullet journal is a completely customizable system for keeping all of your calendars, lists, plans, and reflections in one place. Although it 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 a workshop on Thursday, August 24 at 7:00 p.m., attendees will learn all about Bullet Journaling at Scotch Plains Public Library as presenter Allison Weigel will teach how to set up a bullet journal and how to customize it for individual needs.
