2020 September Bullet Journal Setup

September 2020 Bullet Journal Plan With Me

2020 September theme and cover page

First and foremost, my 2020 bullet journal theme for September is Gossip Girl series, in particular Blair Waldorf aesthetic. For this reason, for my bujo cover page I chose to doodle some cute, girboss vibes stuffs like a sleep mask, a Chanel bag, makeup products, etc.

Brain Dump Page

Next spread is a braindump page.

After working with braindump session for a couple months, now I can’t imagine not to set up this kind of bujo layout in my notebook.

For solely decoration purposes, I drew a fashion figure in a pencil skirt (so Blair Waldorf!), carrying a shopping bag with a Channel logo. On the next page, in the right, the upper corner I repeated the same motive.

September Monthly Calendar

Then I set up September monthly calendar.

Although I like my “productive” spreads to be rather minimalist, this time I went a little bit over the board. What I mean by that, I added a lot of doodles and Blair Waldorf’s famous quotes.

In general, this bullet journal 2020 September spread is my favorite.

Obviously, I had to make a mistake. Luckily, it was easy to fixed. The wrog word was covered by black ink pen. Later, I wrote on it the correct one with a white gel pen.

Trackers for September

The next spreads are my trackers.

As you can see, I chose to make mini calendar habit trackers. Definitely, it’s the most tedious part of bullet journaling. However, I really enjoy using this type of trackers. So it was worth it.

On the next page is my mood tracker. Basically, I repeated almost all drawings from my bujo cover page. In my opinion, this layout will look amazing in the end of September, after completeing.

2020 September Weekly Layout

Last but not least, my weekly one-page bullet journal layout is the most basic layout. Basically, I put a mini-calendar in the right, upper corner, and drew perfume bottles as headers. Also, I left space for my monthly goals, next week’s tasks, and notes.

September Bullet Journal Themes

Undoubtedly, September is this weird month, stuck between late summer and early fall.

For this reason, some of the bullet journalists decide to go with typical fall themes. 

At the same time, there is a strong group in a bullet journaling world that wants summer vibes to stay as long as possible. 

For this reason, they make their September bullet journal still bright and colorful, sticking with summer themes.

However, if you’re struggling with which bujo theme to choose, below you can find the list of the statement September themes.

Harry Potter Theme

Personally, I don’t know if any September bullet journal theme is more suitable than Harry Potter one.

Indeed, back to school has been always strongly connected with the Harry Potter series.

Besides, there are many cute step by step doodle tutorials on Pinterest. So it’s so easy to decorate your entire September bullet journal layouts and stay on theme.

School Theme

Undoubtedly, while speaking of back-to-school season, the school theme is the most obvious choice to make.

But it doesn’t mean your bujo spreads have to be boring and repetitive.

Last year, I chose the school theme and I drew simple flat lay including a notebook, washi tape, pens.

Indeed, you can be crazy creative even with such a basic theme.

Fall Theme

Again, as I mentioned before, for some of us September means fall.

With this in mind, the basic fall bullet journal themes are everything connected with this season like fox, leaves, pumpkins, mushrooms, acorn.

Also, feel free to use fall color schemes like yellows, oranges, reds, greens.

Personally, I think the sunflower theme allows you to stay in summer mood longer. Along with this, it’s pretty easy to draw sunflowers.

Moreover, creating weeklies you love motivates you to use a bujo every single day. With this in mind, here are a few examples.
