There are so many reasons why August is one of my favorite months. First of all, it’s my birth month! While that’s super exciting on it’s own, throw in: back to school madness, the return of football season, the first inklings of autumn and you’ve got a pretty exciting month.
This is one of the busiest months for a lot of people and a lot of families. It can be hard to keep track of it all. That’s okay! For the sake of your sanity, and the sanity of everyone around you, I highly recommend keeping a planner.
Let’s take a look at my bullet journal spread for the impending greatness that is August.
As many of you know, I started using a bullet journal over a year ago and found that excel spreads work best for me. This month’s spread is no different.
Sipping on Peach Tea
This was originally a color scheme I played around with for the month of June. I had decided to go with a more “water” themed scheme instead and saved this one for later. It was an instant no-brainer to use this combo for August. First of all, the nice bright coral color in a sea of more mute browns and peaches is one of my favorite things. That color is gorgeous and one of my favorites. Second of all, who doesn’t love sipping on some iced tea on the front porch on a warm summer night? It just fit.
My August Spread
In all honesty, my August spread isn’t much different from the spread I used for July. July had been such a crazy busy time for me that I didn’t completely keep up with my life and the things I needed to do as much as I would have liked… Especially blogging. So I decided to give this spread another try. August is looking to be a little slower and much calmer than July was for me.
My weeklies haven’t changed in months either. They’re working for me, so I’m a little apprehensive of trying something completely new.
On the right side of my weeklies, is my weekly trackers. Cleaning, spending, menu, etc.

Of course, I’d love to see every one of my followers have a completely organized and stress free month! Bullet journaling is such a good method and I regularly shout it from the rooftops.
