When we first decided to do a bullet journal webinar, it was because of a few factors:
- We have more than once been asked, “How do you keep track of everything?” It has sometimes been asked with the tone that might indicate they are politely leaving off the phrase, “and stay sane…” from the end of their question. We do have 4-5 children each, run nature study clubs, homeschool with babies underfoot, drive our kids to lessons and activities, and regularly (though not necessarily often… but regularly!) shower. Neither of us currently employ a housekeeper (though, we’d love to!) or nanny (ditto!). We love to read and go out on dates with our spouses and to relax. We also decided to begin a blog and webinar series in our spare time. Maybe we are a bit nuts.
- We realized that we are able to do these things because of a few small changes in our lives. We like to talk about them here – using the Charlotte Mason method in our homeschools, making our homes easier to maintain, and keeping organized using a bullet journal.
- We like to share these small changes with others because they have been such a blessing in our lives. It seems wrong to keep this great information to ourselves when some small, inexpensive changes have made such an impact on us and our families.
Well, you see we soon realized that while the bullet journal is the tool we use for organizing, it is really the act and then habit of organizing our days that was the real gem here. You can use a spiral notebook and a bic pen if that is your preference. The tool can vary to some degree, but the method is the key to opening up time in your day for you to find joy and contentment as you fill the roles of mother, teacher, wife, daughter, and human being.
So, won’t you join us February 21, 2017 at 8pm EST as we chat about how we use our bullet journals to be better homeschooling mothers, homemakers, wives, and women? We can’t wait to see you there!
