From Drab to Fab with Bullet Journal Headers

Bullet Journal Headers

If you’re looking to take your minimalistic bullet journal to the next level, an easy way to do that is with bullet journal headers. What is that you ask? Simple. A bullet journal header is whatever you choose to put at the top of your page or section. Your header might be the date, the name of a tracker (check out my bullet journal tracker post), the month, or even a collection (any important list that you want to keep track of).
