Elite bojo’ers definitely favour the Leuchtturm1917 journal for their bullet journal needs.

Bullet journal weekly spread ideas
1. For those who like a color scheme
This is a great example of what you can do with your favorite color scheme! It shows that limiting yourself to only a few colors can actually have amazing results.
2. For just a pop of color
I love this minimalist design. And keeping it black and white really makes the pop of blue stand out. Super simple but effective!
3. Everything you need on one page
This is a great weekly spread idea to have everything just where you can see it. A great idea of what you can do if you’re looking to track a whole range of things in a beautifully minimalist way!
4. Color your life
Just to move away from the more minimalist designs for a moment, this is great inspiration for those of you who are looking for more color in your life! The shading is spectacular – you won’t even know where to look first!
5. Pretty in pink
This is so beautifully neat, I’d almost be afraid to write my actual notes for the week in it. I love how there’s clearly a pink theme without it being overwhelming – and if pink isn’t your thing, you can definitely replace it for another color!
6. When all you need is a timeline
Who needs color when this amazingly elegant layout is available? Not only can you easily see what you need to do each day of the week, but it lets you see the week flow across the page. And I don’t know about you, but a bit of calming flow is what I need sometimes!
7. Cursive minimalism
This beautiful black and white bullet journal weekly spread should give you some elegant inspiration!
The triangle theme as both decoration at the top of the page and to form the headings really makes this bullet journal weekly spread pop off the page! The range of colors used are pretty incredible – tracking your week has never been more fun!
9. A minimalist’s dream
This is simply a minimalist’s dream weekly spread. The simple design is so effective and would be amazingly easy for you to copy for your own bullet journal.
10. Cartoon hero
I don’t know what it is about this one but it reminds me of a comic! A very chic comic, I have to say, but the way it just pops off the screen means that this is a great example of bujo inspiration.
11. Flag this one as bujo inspiration!
The flags strung across this page make a normal week seem like so much more! I love all the colors used, although you could certainly make this into a more limited color scheme if you prefer your weekly spread to be a bit more minimalist.
12. A chic monochrome week
It’s really incredible what some people can do in a bullet journal without any color. This beautiful weekly spread is emphasised by the colorful tabs, helping the monochrome look of the layout itself look oh-so-chic!
13. Pick a color, any color
This is a great bullet journal weekly spread idea for bujo beginners. By relying on the boxes to form a great layout, you’ll start to see what works for you – and adding just a hint of color like the designer of this has done with the green lets you start to see just how far from the monochrome look of some of the others you want to go!
14. A truly pastel week
The soft colors used in this weekly spread are gorgeously subtle. Using this to track your week would be beautifully soothing – with an emphasis on beautiful, clearly!
15. Straight and curved lines
What drew me to this bullet journal weekly spread is how it first seems very brick-like…until you get to the stunning cursive message on the bottom left. It’s like your eyes are drawn down through the strict order of most of the page and then rest on the softer cursive look of the title. A great mix of styles!
16. A week you truly want to track
This is great inspiration for a weekly spread that’s just begging to be filled in. I especially love the bars used to track how the person’s time is spent and what they’re reading. Not only is it an excellent way to see how your week is going but it’s also super motivating to use your time well and get through that book you’ve been meaning to devour!
17. A bullet journal weekly spread that really ensures that every moment matters
“Every moment matters” is the tagline on this weekly spread and with a layout this gorgeous, I see exactly what they mean. I especially love how they’ve used a grey pen to create lines for the tasks and notes sections – super subtle but beautifully elegant.
18. Simply beautiful
This bullet journal weekly spread is simple while being simply beautiful. And did you notice the super subtle bit of color in the month title, which is navy blue while the rest of the page is monochrome?
19. To add a pop of anime to your week
I know your eyes are drawn to the amazingly creative characters showing the designer’s mood each day, but can we also take a moment to appreciate the detail along the top of the page? I’m not sure if that’s a sticker or it’s been drawn but if it’s the latter…wow.
20. A pinkful week
This is a weekly spread where the chosen color is used more than the black for a great effect! Of course, you don’t have to go with pink and this would even look great simply in black and white – but we all need a bit of color in our life, no?
21. Meals and habits and weather, oh my
Here’s a bullet journal weekly spread where tracking things other than the days are given the same amount of space as the days themselves. I especially love the habit tracker and meal planner, especially when the latter can save you hundreds of dollars on your groceries each month.
22. Add a little confetti to your weekly spread
Using the dots on the right as “confetti” is a super simple way to decorate your bullet journal weekly spread. Who says that black and white can’t be fun!
23. It’s easy being green!
Way to make you want to do your weekly to-do list! Using a set color in each weekly spread lets you keep things beautifully simple, while letting you change things up each week depending on how you feel.
24. A font extravaganza
This has got to be one of my favourite weekly spreads on this list. As far as bujo inspiration goes, this is definitely up there. The different fonts work amazingly well while the peach theme ties it all together perfectly!
25. A serene week
The soft fade-in and fade-out of colors in this weekly spread makes me feel immediately calmer. It’s almost like looking at an ocean at sunset – which may be just the breath of fresh air that you need if real life is keeping you chained to your actual obligations!
26. All the colors of the rainbow!
I don’t know if I like this one because they’ve used every color of the rainbow…or if it’s because the designer is clearly a blogger who has their stuff under control! Things to do for blog administration, blog posts to write, email course to set up…this is definitely something new bloggers (and existing ones *raises hand*) can use.
27. All you need is love
And for a beautifully romantic end to this list, why not get some inspiration from this bujo example. The pink isn’t over-powering and neither is the heart theme – but it definitely sets the mood high for your week!
