Being well into the second semester of 2020, I found my bullet journal in need of some kind of bookmarking system. My cover already comes with two bookmarks, one of which always stays at the current month and the other at the current week. Mind you, I very rarely do dailies as I find that I can better focus and plan if I have the whole week in a spread. At least for this year, which was pretty unproductive, the one-week-at-a-glance approach was more efficient for my needs and rhythms. Anyway, as we all know, collections that we need to refer back to keep piling up during the year and a few more bookmarks would be very handy. The bulky decorative approach so many follow in the bullet journal community, although fun to look at, is not for me. I prefer function and minimalism over volume and visual clutter. I like my planner pretty and minimal and functional.
Brainstorming and browsing for ideas, I zoomed in on this Rivet Bookmark Connesso from the official Hobonichi store and thought it had the potential to fit into my style of planning. And, like all crafters with a bunch of tools and supplies at hand, my first instinct was to try and diy it. Besides, the cost of shipment and taxes could not be justified in my head for such a small item. So, I made my own super easy and minimal triple bookmark for my Hobonichi (a day-free A6). Goes without saying you can use it on your planner of choice. In the video above you can see how I did it and maybe try one of your own.
