These minimalist bullet journal layouts might just inspire you to step away from the colored markers and embrace the simple life!
Minimalist Bullet Journal
When Ryder Carroll shared his bullet journal setup it had Rapid Logging at its heart, and clean and simple spreads that allowed you to document your tasks and notes quickly.
Of course the bullet journal has been embraced by many who are creative at heart and embrace all kinds of hand lettering, doodles and embellishments to turn their journal into something they WANT to use each day.
Today though I’m taking you back to basics to show you that a minimalist bullet journal can be just as beautiful, engaging and inspiring as the creative bright and colorful spreads and layouts I usually share!
If you want to try your hand at simple minimalist spreads you’ll need to make sure you have a decent black pen (fineliners like this are the least prone to smudges), a ruler and a stencil because the one factor all these layouts have in common is that they look crisp and clean.
1 | Minimalist Weekly Spread
This minimalist weekly spread is just GORGEOUS! I love how it looks so simple but has room for a weekly schedule, task list and a habit tracker!
2 | Minimalist Daily Log
If you’ve avoided minimalist layouts so far because you want to include a creative element in your spreads take a look at this daily log. It’s black and white with clean lines but there is still room each day for a doodle!
3 | A Simple Spread that Follows the bullet journal System
I LOVE this spread because it looks beautiful but is also a perfect example of how the bullet journal works with the daily entries and the bulleted list with the signifiers to explain each item.
4 | Simple Weekly Spread
Here’s another great example of how to lay out a simple weekly spread. This one has room for a weekly doodle, a menu plan for the week and also a kid highlight! So sweet!
5 | Minimalist Cover Page
If you need minimalist cover page ideas for your journal you can’t go wrong with something simple like this with an illustration and inspirational quote.
6 | Simple Habit Tracker
Here’s another example of how you can lay your habit tracker out in a simple spread.
7 | Simple Last Replaced Tracker
The Last Replaced spread is one of the most popular in our bullet journal tracker collection and I really like this minimalist spin, especially the little doodles to identify each entry in the list!
