Bullet Journal Brunch - September 2016
Bullet Journal Brunch - A Tradition BeginsIt's that time again! The end of the month is drawing near and it's time to start updating your Bullet Journals for the upcoming month. Not only do we get a fresh start at a new month, it's also the beginning of a new season. Fall is finally upon us! Time to trade in long, hot days for the cool, crisp breezes, tank tops for scarves, and iced coffees for warm, spiced lattes. To usher in the new month, my sister Meghan, one of my best friends Jade and I held our first Bullet Journal Brunch.

Each new month in a Bullet Journal means several new pages to create, especially if you're using things like habit trackers and various logs. We decided to get together and share our supplies and ideas (and food!) rather than create everything alone. From now on, during the last weekend of the month, we'll have brunch and spend the afternoon creating all our new month pages.

Each of us had slightly different lists of pages to create. My monthly pages consist of:
- Previous month retrospective
- Month overview by day
- Tasks for the month and an overview of next month
- Gratitude log
- Budgeting page
- Habit tracker
- Chores log
Meghan also included a half marathon training tracker for the Good Life Halfsy she's running in November. Jade added an grocery expenses tracker so her and her boyfriend could log how much they're spending each month. The diversity of collections is one of the reasons I love Bullet Journals. Everyone can include exactly what they need to organize their unique lives!
Here's what I ended up with for September.

|Gratitude log. I love how perfect this washi tape is!|
|Budgeting worksheet to help me come up with weekly budgets|
|Habit tracker and cleaning tracker|
I'm already looking forward to our next Bullet Journal Brunch in October!
What do your monthly spreads look like for September? Did you include any new pages or features this month?
