What are bullet journal collections?

‘Collections’ in your bullet journal are the names of those special pages where you collect information on one particular topic.

Another name for collections could simply be ‘lists’, but when we think about bujo collections, they’re often a bit more creative.

Collections pages are sometimes very useful and practical. For example, maybe you need a page to record all your deadlines for a school or work project.

Or maybe you want to keep a list of your family’s addresses all in one place, you so can find them easily when you need to write your Christmas cards.

On the other hand, bullet journal collections can be a way to express your fun and creative side.

Bullet journal collection ideas such as your favorite flowers or dream vacation destinations may not be essential to your day-to-day personal organization, but creating these pages is a chance to daydream and doodle to your heart’s content.

Why make bullet journal collection pages?

If you’re an arty person, your bullet journal collection pages are the perfect opportunity to express yourself and have fun doodling and decorating your bujo.

Of course, there are also dozens of options in between ‘arty’ and ‘functional’! Think reading lists, recipes to try, mood tracking… maybe not essential,  but sometimes it’s good to get these things out of your head and down on paper.

This brings me on to another benefit of collections. They can clear so much mental clutter!

How many times do you end up trying to remember a hundred things at once, or trying to sort through random notes on your phone, open tabs on your laptop, scrappy bits of paper with names on…

If you have a collection page on that topic, you can simply note the new information down and move on. Save your headspace for more important things 🙂

It’s also really useful to have all your ideas in one place when you’re looking for inspiration. This especially goes for things like books to read or movies to watch.

Once you’ve set up your bullet journal, your mind is probably turning to collection ideas.
