It’s never too early to take some time to Setup a Month for your Bullet Journal and get everything ready on time, December can get so busy so it’s better to get everything ready before it gets crazy!
Can’t believe we’ll be soon be thinking about what to do for Christmas and for New Year’s Eve and getting so busy with all those things we need to do to get everything ready.
Family, work, personal things to do and also you should not forget to get everyone something they will love as a Christmas present and get everything to decorate the house for the Holidays and a thousand more things to do!
It’s never too early to take some time to get all the spreads you will need for this month, I can’t believe I started to share a month setup on February and month after month I kept doing it, and today it’s time to share a December month setup.

How To Setup A New Month For A Bullet Journal
This time I started working on a month cover with some drawings of something that’s representative of the month… “snow flakes”
As I kept working on making all the spreads for my Bullet Journal every month, it’s getting easier to work on it, what it used to take me half day, today it was all made in an hour or so.
Once you get the habit to work on it, and once you have some previous month setup already done, you’ll know what spreads you need and which ones will be no longer necessary to have them on your Bullet Journal.
As everything, the more you work on it, the easier it gets… and this is one of the main goals to keep working on your Bullet Journal, you can master anything you want to.
I try to keep it simple, with some decoration according to the month, now I don’t miss getting a month calendar, this way I don’t miss any day.
I keep working on dotted paper A4 and I fold it in half to make the cover, in the other have I make the Future Log for the month.
This time it has 5 weeks, don’t forget to write down your goals to achieve on each week and also those events or important appointments you don’t want to miss.
This spread will give you a quick look on what is important to work on during the month, later you can work to make a detailed plan for every week and write down the tasks you will be working on to achieve those goals.
Don’t let the time just go by, make it count, get those jobs done and soon you’ll see how far you have gotten.
This time I added some washy take with snow flakes designs on it.
The calendar spread will help you to have an over view of the month, I made an undated spread and I made a few copies of it, each month it will take just a few minutes to write down the month and dates and it will be ready to add some appointments, birthdays, events and some notes to highlight, this way I won’t forget any of them.
As the month goes by, if I get more appointments or events to attend, I won’t forget about any of them because I keep everything on this month calendar.
This month calendar spread has enough room to do some doodles on it or enough room to add any decoration on it.
Hope you get inspired and draw a month calendar on your own Bullet Journal.
You might want to keep working on a Gratitude calendar, I came to the idea to make a whole month of Gratitude in a single spread, this way I can write a word about what I’m grateful of every day.
When the month is finished it will show how many good things happened during this month and it will be an easy reminder of how good life is.
Sometimes as life happens so fast, there’s no time to stop and look around us to see there are many good things going on around us, small and big, there are good moments and nice things happening all the time even during hard times.
You can get inspired to start working this way and take a note or write a word of what happened in your life every day and you’re grateful for.
I could not finish my work to get all the spreads ready for a good month if I don’t make a mood tracker, it will help me to know how do I feel every day and keep track of it.
Nothing nicer and more appropriate for this month than a happy Snowman, it might look like it’s having some problems with the Christmas lights, but it may be having just some fun with them.
Get inspired by my mood tracker and feel free to copy it!
When I finish the drawing of the mood tracker with ink, I decided to add some color on it, it looks nicer and this way it will help me to keep working on it.
A good idea to add some color to your Bullet Journal spreads is to use the Bic Color Collection markers, they don’t leave any mark when you use them, and it looks like you bought the spread as it looks like it was printed and not drawn.
Note: if you use these markers to add some color to any paper, be sure to place an extra paper under as the ink is strong and goes to the second paper.
I also add a habit tracker every month, you can download a copy of it here.
