My Bullet Journal Wingman :)


I’d like to introduce y’all to the new member of my bujo family—the Leuchtturm1917 A5 soft cover, squared notebook affectionately known as the “Wingman” or the “Sidekick” as Kim Alvarez from Tiny Ray of Sunshine calls it.

The Hobonichi Cousin is fabulous—I mean totally awesomely fabulous BUT as fans of the Hobo have been discussing …

Where to put collections?

There is only a small number of pages in back of the Cousin and I needed WAYYYY more than that.  I searched high and low for a notebook with high quality paper so I could use my new fountain pens in it if I so desired. Numbered pages was also something I wanted if I could get it and an index (this is one of the problems with Moleskines, which were previously my fav, unpaginated with no index 😦 ).

The other thing I needed was a thin notebook with a soft cover to slip in behind my beloved Hobonichi Cousin and still use the strap on my Hobo cover to keep it all together…this was all before I discovered and ORDERED the AMAZING Roterfaden that has the supernatural ability to solve the “bundling” problem…

Stay tuned because I’m going to give you a look at how my hobo-bujo-roter family are changing my life 🙂 very very soon…

I soon found the Leuchtturm brand had the perfect thing.  I bought mine (I ended up ordering 2 just coz) from Larry Post in Australia.  It ticked all my boxes and some boxes I didn’t know I needed ticked!

So I’ve started setting up pages that spoke to me from other amazing bullet journalers like:

Kim – @tinyrayofsunshine

Kara – @boho.berry

Jessica @prettyprintsandpaper

Kacheri –

Dee – @decadethirty

Jess – @plannerbynature

and some of my own inventions (well it’s impossible to know actually if it is your invention or if you saw it somewhere in the past and forgot where the idea came from), which I can’t wait to share and get your feedback on so I can make my bujo wingman as successful as possible 🙂

Love this community, love you guys!  Keep on bullet journaling and supporting each other coz it’s kinda inspiring 😉

    1. I totally agree Claire! Having a list stops a great deal of the impulse purchases – especially if you get the kids to make it with you before you leave! Love the sidekick 🙂 Thanks so much for your comment…sorry I didn’t reply straight away I forgot to follow up after I vetted your comment :/
      Hope to hear from you again soon!
