Have you heard of bullet journaling? The latest trend in list making, it really just requires a notebook, a pen, and maybe a ruler if you're a stickler for straight lines. Part planner, part diary, all bullet journals start with an index, and the rest is up to you. You can add yearly overviews, monthly calendars, daily habits, shopping lists, class notes, doodles—you name it. Of course, some get pretty fancy with it, and the #bulletjournal hashtag on Instagram is a source of inspiration (or for some, intimidation). If you're curious about this method of keeping your life organized, here are five Instagrammers who make notebooks look noteworthy.
Artist Lavennz Ooi combines minimalist grids with drawings, images, stamps, and washi tape for an eclectic mix.
Natascha takes a clean grid and illustrates around it, like in this ocean-themed weekly view.
Hand lettering artist Jennifer Trafton unsurprisingly has gorgeous pages. As a relative newbie to bullet journaling, she's a great follow for beginners even though her illustration is advanced.
Maren Janka is a German art history student, and we dig her minimal style that combines a touch of watercolor with adorable icons.
The OG—Ryder Carroll started the bullet journal practice three years ago. Carroll mostly regrams other people's bullet journals, so it's a great follow to see who's out there.
