Most people (myself included) tend to use their planner portrait page orientation as that’s the way printed planners come. However, if you’re bullet journaling it’s a good opportunity to try something different.
Before the Pen
You might recognise this weekly spread as one of the landscape bujo layouts I did in this post. After experimenting with those few layouts I decided on this one:
Landscape page orientation spread
I can see why most people prefer minimalist designs these days. Adding the washi plus the yellow dots on the page was too much. I love the covers of this Happy Notes book, but I’m not a fan of yellow dot grid paper so rarely use it.
Yes that is a mistake with the highlighter colors for the letter Q. I can usually remember what the different shades of colors for each highlighter brand look like but this one I forgot to do a test swatch on scrap paper to see how it would look with the washi tape. As a result the the colors are ok but not a perfect match.

Would I use this spread again?
I like the layout, but not the colors. They sort of did but sort of didn’t go together. I’ll normally use one brand so everything coordinates and as you can see in this spread where I used a bunch of different brands, that the colors look ok but don’t look quite right together.
Planning landscape ways gave plenty of room for list making and is something I’m likely to try again!
