What is a Bullet Journal Collection? (aka bujo page)
If you are new to bullet journaling you might not know exactly what a bullet journal collection is.
Simply put a collection is a just a bunch of related ideas grouped together, think of them as like bullet journal inserts, and they can be in any form!
It could be a list of things you plan to do, places to visit, things to buy, stuff to try, your future log… The list goes on indefinitely.
It could be literally anything!
In regards to the bullet journal method ( the original bullet journal concept ) some collections are inherited to the system, such as you daily and month logs, and most people use them.
Every log and entry in your bullet journal is a collection – because they are groups of related things.
However, we have also the Custom Bullet Journal Collections. These are collections that people make based on their own personal interests and needs.
It is pretty much anything else other than your bullet journal calendar pages.
For instance a person may add bullet journal collections such as cleaning tasks, books to read and bucket list destinations.
Another person may have collections such as date night ideas, movies to watch collection and home improvement spreads.
Your awesome bullet journal collection spreads will be a reflection of what you need or want to track.
