Plan With Me September Bullet Journal Layouts

This is my first bullet journal style monthly layout in my binder planner, and I am really happy with how cute it turned out! This is also my first plan with me post. I hope that you like it! :)

Monthly Bullet Journal Title Page

The first page for the month is my title page. This month, I decided to go with a plant theme and a hexagon theme. For my monthly pages, I used only one color marker, to try and make it a little bit more minimalist.

Below the hexagon garden hanging, I added a box for my goals because I love having a title page, but I don't like the feeling of having a page that is just for looks. I like having the goals on the front page because it reminds me of what I am working on for the month.

Bullet Journal Supplies Used


The supplies I used for these spreads were...


  • A Black Sharpie Pen - I use my sharpie pen for almost everything in my planner. If you see anything in black, it was probably done with my handy black sharpie pen, unless it is calligraphy or hand lettering. :)
  • A Green Crayola Super Tip Marker - I bought the Crayola Super Tip 50-pack recently, and I love them! I use them for pretty much all of my spreads because they can be used for practically everything with their special tip that can be used to draw thick and thin lines. I don't know what color this marker is because they don't say on the side, which is a minus for some people, but it doesn't really bother me. You can read my full review of these markers here.
  • A White Gel Pen - White gel pens are super handy to have. They can be used to white out small mistakes. Even though they don't entirely white out the mistake on some colors, (Like darker colors) they still make it less noticeable.
  • A Mechanical Pencil - I actually draw out most of my layout in pencil before I use pen because it eliminates most of the mistakes I would make and then I can decide if I like how the page looks before I draw it in with pens and markers. This does take longer though so if you don't make many mistakes or large mistakes, then you can save time by drawing it out in pen.
  • A Small Stencil - The small stencil, which I used for the hexagons in the monthly calendar portion, is one of the accessories, which I usually don't use on my layouts. I used it since I was doing a hexagon plant theme, and I wanted to incorporate the hexagons somewhere else on the layout besides just the garden hangings. The small stencil I used can be seen in the picture below.
  • A Ruler - Now this technically isn't a ruler because it is really just a small strip of laminated cardstock, but it can be used to draw lines, and I don't need markings on it because I use dotted pages. I like using it because it is flat, and thin so it is easy to store. Plus it has a pink watercolor pattern on it, so it is cute!
These are all of the supplies I used for these bullet journal layouts, besides my planner pages of course! :)

Monthly Bullet Journal Calendar Layout

At the top of this page, I added the header in caps. On the other side, I continued the theme of the plants and then I added the "Choose to be kind" quote.

When I made these pages, I actually started with the monthly calendar page, before making the other two pages, so I could figure out what theme I was doing, and what type of fonts I wanted to use.

For the calendar portion, I did a weekend column instead of having seven columns, so I wouldn't have to figure out having three columns on one side and four columns on the other side. Or having one column in the center covered with rings, so it would be practically unusable. I usually have fewer tasks on the weekend, than during the week, so I don't need as much room.

I did hexagons around the day number. At first, I was going to color in the hexagon, but then I tried it out on the first day, and then the lettering for the day number was too dark, and I didn't really want to do it in white, so I just left that one and then did the rest of the days in with the hexagon outlined in green.

Monthly Bullet Journal Tracker Page + Next Month

On this page, I really liked how I did the small headers coming out from the side of the box with the black lettering on top.

For my habit tracker, I added small numbers going down the side. Every day I do my habit, I add a dot to the corresponding habit. I use to do a checkbox, but the small dots look more minimalist, and it is easier at a glance to see how well I am doing on a habit.

Next to the habit box is my gratitude box, which has my word of the month at the top next to my small hanging garden. The word I chose for the month "kind" matches up with my quote, so I can remember to be more kind this month. Below that, I have enough room to write down one thing I am grateful for each day which is one of my monthly habits.

Below that box, I have space for me to write down the tasks that I have to do next month. I am putting a bullet point next to each task so when I make my new layout, I can transfer those activities over to my next monthly layout.

These were all of the pages I made for my monthly bullet journal section. Next month, I will tell you how functional these layouts were and maybe switch up the design for next month.
