Something I’ve been watching on YouTube lately is bujo layouts.
Because I’m poor, I can’t always afford to order some bujo stickers, so I was wondering what I could do instead. Considering I have quite a few sticker collections, I decided to create my own themes using what I already have (which makes a lot of sense, doesn’t it?)
For the month of July (aka hot-as-fuck month), I decided an Ancient Egypt theme using the sticker book I got in Glasgow.
First things first, supplies.
- red and gold washi tape
- red, peach, and golden brown Crayola Supertips
- brown skinny Crayola marker
- forest green, light brown, orange brown Pen+Gear markers
- the stickers
- and of course, your bujo
My title page, as every month has one, has the quote “All things are possible. Who you are is limited by who you think you are.” It’s apparently from the Egyptian Book of the Dead, which seemed to fit. The symbols is hieroglyphics for July. I thought it was a cool touch, and I hope I got it right.
My monthly page with important dates and goals. I also have a challenge tracker since I dubbed this month Challenge Month, so it’ll keep me on my toes or whatever.
Then, I have a habit tracker. Yeah, I’ve got a lot of habits to track being under a commitment contract.
And finally, I have a weekly page. I have a to-do list, a tiny section for work (though, it’s not often used, it does offer a spot to put meetings or goals), a section for my digital stuff like blogs and videos, and notes for whatever I need at all.
If you want to use any of these, go right ahead.
The point of this is you don’t need expensive kits or whatever. Use what you have already and you’ll probably have a fun time.
