Dot Journaling—A Practical Guide

I have never been able to get and stay organized, I would start so many lists and then it would get lost. Then I tried the Dot Journaling—A Practical Guide by Rachel Wilkerson Miller and immediately fell in love with it. This post is a sponsored post, but all opinions, stories, and my experience are all personal and true (like always)!


What the heck is a dot journal? It’s a planner, to-do list, and diary for every aspect of your life: work, home, relationships, hobbies, everything.

Early adopter Rachel Wilkerson Miller explains how to make a dot journal work for you—whether you find the picture-perfect examples on Pinterest inspiring or, well, intimidating. You decide how simple or elaborate your journal will be, and what goes in there:

  • Lists of your to-dos, to-don’ts, and more
  • Symbols that will make those lists efficient and effective
  • Spreads to plan your day, week, month, or year
  • Trackers for your habits and goals (think health, money, travel)
  • Accoutrements such as washi tape, book darts, and more!

My Thoughts:

This book comes with a how to guide for getting organized. It helps you with making to do lists, plan your days weeks or even the entire year out and has a tracker to help you with your goals. Then there are also pages for you to journal. It has been really helpful with planning our move. It was nice to use this to make a to do list for packing and staying organized on our long drive. Now I use it for staying organized for when school starts and also using it for helping with my weight loss. I love that I can set goals and use the tracker to help me keep on track with my healthy habits such as exercising and working on eating healthier. If you are looking for something to help keep your life a little more organized then look no further and give this book and dot journalling  a try.
