I started bullet journaling a few months ago. While it’s taken me awhile to get into the daily habit of using it, it has been a lifesaver during hectic or stressful times in my life. My favorite part is the bullet journal weekly spread and I’m constantly looking for new bullet journal ideas to add to my spreads.
I have used several different spread options. Currently, I am using a very minimalist approach as the holiday season is a stressful and busy time. Additionally, we are moving in a few weeks which means I need to be on top of everything between now and the move.
In looking for a weekly spread to better help me track all of my plans through the month of December I decided to show you some of my favorites. I plan on trying each of these out and eventually I will create a weekly planner that suits me by picking the best parts of all of these.
Weekly spreads are an essential part to the bullet journal process especially when trying to use it as a planner and life tracker. You can keep track of upcoming events, schedule your days, and leave notes about the day for yourself.
Additionally, if you are a work at home parent like me the bullet journal weekly spreads really help you to plan and keep a schedule. This is important for several reasons. You are more productive and you know when to stop working. As we all know stopping work when you work from home is a difficult task in itself.
Due to the popularity of the Bullet Journal Posts on MommyIsAWino, I decided to start an in depth blog for bullet journaling. Check out Bullet Journal Addict for more bullet journal ideas and inspiration.

Finding the perfect weekly spread can be a bit difficult. It helps to look at a bunch of different bullet journal ideas and then pick and choose what you like from each spread.
You may want to track your sleep or even add a full blown habit tracker. You can include meal planning and shopping lists. Or you may want to keep it super simple and only track your tasks.
Looking through different bullet journal ideas for weekly spreads can help you to find the best type of spread for you. I recommend trying them out and seeing what works for you too. Don’t add anything that won’t help you stay on track with your goals and tasks.

Prepped for Thanksgiving week! 👉🏻 (swipe for more) . Normally I don’t prep for the following week this early, but I had to get this idea out of my head and into my journal before I lost it 😂 I’m not thrilled with the ghosting from the page before – but that happens, so I just went with it anyway. The more I fill it in, the less ghosting I’ll notice 👻 . . . . . . . . . #bujo #bujospread #bujolove #bujolover #thanksgiving #bujojunkies #bujoinspire #bujoaddict #bulletjournal #fabercastell #bulletjournaljunkies #nextweek #bulletjournaladdict #journal #journaling #journals #planneraddict #planning #bujoblossoms #leuchtturm1917 #tracking #bulletjournalweeklylog #bujoweekly #showmeyourplanner #bujobeauty #weekly #weeklyspread

Ahhh guys I've written about 3,000 words today my brain hurts! This week's long post is super long, plus I'm working on another super secret project! 😉 Today's prompt for @floralsyourway was Chinese Lantern! I really don't feel like I did it justice (hence the other spread to hopefully cancel out the ugliness 🙈) but ah well, here's my entry anyway! What do you think of my Chinese Lanterns? 😶
