Loving these minimalist bullet journal spreads - so many reasons to stick with black and white this month!

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.

These minimalist bullet journal spreads are so simple and clean. Check out the daily and weekly spread examples if you're ready to embrace the simple life!
