Alternating text spacesThis one provides variety and consistency at the same time. The placement of each day’s tasks alternates on one side, but is grouped together vertically on the other. (via @nini.journal)
Washi tape cornersI thought this was such creative placement of beautiful washi tape*, since most times people lay them straight horizontally or vertically. (via @bujo.birdie)
Layout template set upIf you look closely at this spread, the filler information is not straight on the page but on cut-outs. If you do like a specific layout, make it into a bullet journal printable, or draw it once and log your weekly tasks on fun, colorful post its* instead. (via @nohnoh.studies)

Time tracker with color coding
Take note of how you use your time down to the hour with color coded time ladders like you see on the left. Also love the checkered table of the right side to record things such as your:

- Travel in your bullet journal
- And other notes
Time logAdding the hours of the day to your daily spread will allow you to pinpoint time blocks to tasks on your to-do list or events. Easier and more likely to accomplish your goals when you can specifically designate time to your projects. (via @nohnoh.studies)
Daily task migration
