As soon as I got done setting it up, I knew the bullet journal was a preposterous idea for me. I didn’t see myself doing it for long. That it lasted through April is longer than I would have expected. The most impact it had was tracking my monthly spending habits. I wrote down everything for a few months. To sum it up, my spending pretty much consisted of eating out, random Amazon or Target shit, and grocery shopping. And I noticed that while my grocery bills came out to about a hundred to two hundred a week, eating out, even ordering non-fancy takeout Chinese could run over $50 (with leftovers) for a meal or so. So I stopped eating out unless it was with other people. Meaning eating out for sustenance was a don’t. Eating out for socializing was a do. I’ve since resumed eating out (for convenience, enjoyment) again and have noticed how salty, sweet, greasy stuff can be. In other words, tasty! But then also sometimes less tasty than I remembered.
