June 2019 Bullet Journal Setup
Brian’s mom and I are hardcore bullet journalers. We both love getting organized and being productive. For June’s bullet journal setup, I’m proud to say I worked on it with her side by side! Crystal is definitely more about efficiency than I am and I completely acknowledge that all of the pretty designs, calligraphy, and colors I use can be considered excessive. However, I honestly enjoy making my planning spaces look pretty and it’s really therapeutic for me so I make time for it. If you’re not into that, you can definitely create a bullet journal spread that is not as elaborate or as colorful as mine of course, but I make these bullet journal posts for those who are up for a bit of a challenge or are in need of spread or theme ideas!

As you guys can see, this month’s theme is pineapples! I really love this fruit and its tropical flavor seemed to be a great idea for the month. I first drew a pineapple in the center and wrote out “June” on another piece of paper and cut it out and glued it to the middle of the pineapple. I am really loving the way it turned out and the pop-out effect! I found a washi tape with pineapples on it to use as a monthly marker on the side as well. I’ll definitely be using that on my weekly spreads in the future as well!
I used two accent colors this month - the brownish orange for the body of the pineapple and a green for the stem. I added drop shadows onto each date box and drew pineapples all over. Looking back, I wish that I put in a quote in place of the large pineapple on the left side of the page under my social media tracker but it’s too late now. Oh well, live and learn, I guess.

Habit Tracker and expense tracker
I went back to the drawing board when it came to both of my trackers this month. For the habit trackers, as much as I love the look of individual trackers, I just didn’t want to deal with the hand cramp that came from writing all the dates down nine times in a row. You may remember this particular type of habit tracker as one I used to use often last year. It’s easy to create and easy to track so I went back to that… at least for this month.
Same with my expense tracker. I decided to be experimental with my expense tracker last month, only to realize I just ended up never using it because I think I confused myself on how it would work. I just like this simple easy layout. No fuss, no muss!
Apparently I’m pretty boring this month because this is probably the same kind of spread I use all the time. I can’t help it. I find this spread easy to use and easy to draw and it has everything I need - a space to track my goals, my social media growth, a few reminders and space to write my blog posts for the week.
