Journal Along With Me | Best Bullet Journal Cheats

Using washi tape to make tabs

Here are my top three cheats to get your bullet journal to the next level

Washi tape

Use lots of tape to decorate your pages, divide up sections or make tabs so you can easily find the pages you use the most.

Wrap washi tape around the edge of the page to make a colour coded key.


Design boxes and grids on a spreadsheet, print them out and stick them in. Look for free downloadable printables too.

Fake writing

  1. Type your headings in a fancy font, print them out and stick them in, or
  2. Print them out and trace over them, or
  3. Use clear acrylic stamps as I have done below

  1. Washi tape is my fave! I got loads for Christmas so been very liberal with it in my bullet journal so far. It just adds so much colour (and mine are mostly cat themed to quite a lot of personality too!)
