If you saw my last post, you probably saw that I was going to use a big black sketch book as my new bullet journal. Boy was that a mistake! After about 10 failed attempts at drawing lines and creating boxes (with a ruler), I realized why everyone chooses to use a dotted or grid journal. Lol. With that said, I hit Amazon and decided to purchase a dotted journal. I considered buying a Leuchtturm1917 Hardcover Journal, which nearly everyone uses, but I wasn’t sure if I wanted to pay $20 for a book I would probably abandon in a few days. I added about 5 different journals to my cart, but in the end I decided to purchase the “UNNI Classic Dotted Notebook.” I chose this journal because it had almost everything in common with the Leuchtturm1917, at nearly half the price ($10.95). From what I can tell, the only thing the Leuchtturm1917 has that this journal doesn’t, is a dedicated Index section and numbered pages. There is also only 1 bookmark ribbon instead of 2. Those things weren’t a deal breaker for me because I actually like being able to determine how many pages I dedicate to my Index section, and I can just number the pages as I work on them, so that’s no big deal.
