Bullet Journal Collections to blow your socks off!
Let’s get straight to it with these amazing bullet journal collection ideas…
Let’s start off simple!
Starting your bullet journal collections with a goals spead can be a great way to give your bullet journaling some purpose and clarity.

And take a look at this beautiful goals bullet journal collection idea by journalrella on Instagram – gorgeous!
Here’s a simple bullet journal collection of goals that I created near the beginning of my bullet journal…
You can make your goals bullet journal collections as straightforward or as in-depth as you like, depending on what works best for you.
The bullet journal collection below is a great example of something more detailed – you can check out the accompanying post on pageflutter.com if you’re interested!
The bullet journals above and below both use a Leuchtturm 1917 dotted notebook, which I highly recommend.
You can also create goals for your routines like this bullet journal collection by sleeplesspage on Instagram.
As well as setting goals for the future, it’s nice to stop for a moment and remember all the nice things that have already happened!
Doing this can really help to keep you feeling positive and grateful, so bullet journal collections of monthly memories are really worth trying out!
Here is one of my own ‘Monthly Memories’ collections…
I created this with my PoooliPrint pocket printer, which I love!
They’re a fantastic little addition to any bullet journal kit, as they allow you to create gorgeous collections like the one above in minutes.
Here’s another gorgeous bullet journal collection for memories created with a Poooliprint…
Birthdays Bullet Journal Collections
Another staple bullet journal collection idea is a birthdays and anniversaries page, so that you never forget an important date. You can use a standard grid/calendar layout, or experiment with one of these beautiful ideas…

Family & Friends Bullet Journal Collection Ideas
There are lots of great bullet journal collection ideas to help you be an extra-wonderful friend or family member! These are some of my favourites:
- Gift lists – keep track of all those ideas you have throughout the year for perfect presents. Then, when the date arrives, picking something out will be easy-peasy.
- Wishlist – these type of bullet journal collections keep a list of all the little things you covet throughout the year! Then you’ll never be short of good ideas when you’re asked what presents you’d like!
- Gifts log – don’t forget to keep track of the gifts you’ve received too! Bullet journal collections like this can be great if you’re lucky enough to receive so many birthday presents that you forget who to thank for what. And can also help to avoid awkward re-gifting situations!!
- Favourite family meals/recipes, and everyone’s favourite restaurants.
- The last time I called… use these bullet journal collections for friends and relatives who live further away, to make sure you don’t go too long without checking in. Or adapt it to ‘last time I emailed’!
- Favourite family/friends memories – cherish all those precious memories by logging them in a special bullet journal collection. This is a great way to remember to feel grateful for having loving friends and family in your life. This can also work really well if you have kids, just devote a special page per child and note down all those special moments and hilarious things they say! The PoooliPrinter I mentioned above in ‘monthly memories’ is brilliant for this too.
- Date night ideas/ ideas for places to take the kids. Self explanatory really!
- More bullet journal collections for kids – craft ideas, activity ideas, schools info, chores schedule, milestones… the list of bullet journal collection ideas for keeping track of kids is endless!
Goals Trackers – to go with your goals collections
As well as your bullet journal collections for goals, you can create a tracker so that you have a visual representation of getting closer and closer to your aim.
This idea works really well for any goal that you can break down into increments.
For example, if you’re training for a 10k run, make a tracker that represents each 1k you reach in your training schedule.
I love the example below, which represents my goal of achieving a law degree. There are 12 boxes to represent each term, right up until the final one when my main goal will be achieved.
After each term is completed, I color the box in, and can see myself getting closer and closer to my ultimate goal!
This is great to keep you motivated when it gets tough, as you can literally see how far you’ve come.
Meal Planning Bullet Journal Collections
There are lots of different bullet journal collection ideas to log your meal planning.
You could create a small selection of weekly mix and match options to help make your Sunday evening planning quicker and easier.
This also helps with shopping as it’s much easier to identify what you need if you plan your meals in advance.
This meal planning bullet journal collection by gothamhaus on Instagram does the job.
Health & Fitness Bullet Journal Collection Ideas
There are any number of bullet journal collections relating to health and fitness!

Last Appointments Bullet Journal Collections
This is one of the most useful bullet journal collection ideas, even though it’s a pretty dull one!
A couple of pages dedicated to recording your most recent appointments can be really useful.

I keep a list of the last appointments with all of the below, and have separate lists for family members (and pets!) too:
