5 Beautifully Simple Minimalist Bullet Journal Spread Ideas

December 05, 2019

We all love bullet journaling here at Yop and Tom, but we have to admit we have a particular soft spot for the minimalist style. There is something about the simplicity of black and white spreads with clean simple structures which we find particularly calming and elegant.

When you start bullet journaling, it can be daunting to see everyone's beautiful spreads with incredible doodles and artwork on every page. A simple and clean minimalist style can be easier for beginners whilst still being beautiful and easy to use.


There are thousands of inspirational minimalist spread ideas out there but we've selected a few examples to showcase this style.

For a full collection of our favourites don't forget to follow our Minimalist Pinterest Board.
