homeschooling with bullet journals

Bullet journals can be fantastic tools for kids and adults alike for everything from tracking days they’ve done math to planning next year’s curriculum choices to keeping track of the year’s read-aloud books.

We’ve been using bullet journals in our homeschool for a couple of years now and the kids and I all love them.

You can buy bullet journals at store like Michael’s or online at sites like Amazon.  You can cut out the middle man and find all kinds of really fantastic deals on bullet journals at eBay if you’re willing to wait a bit longer, though, and shipping is generally included in the price.

This is great if you’re planning now for the next season or school year, since the wait can be as long as a month in some cases.

With five kids who love art, writing and bullet journaling, I tend to stock up and buy a lot.  I don’t mind waiting because the deals are so much better — and some of the most fun and creative designs are only available on eBay.

Here’s an assortment of types of bullet journals you can get for under $5 (shipping included) at eBay right now.

These simple 30 page BUJOs are currently $2.94 with free shipping.  I didn’t see a photo of the inside but I’m assuming they are regular ruled pages as opposed to blank or dotted pages, but note that they may be blank or dotted inside.

This simple BuJo with a black cover has plain white pages inside and is currently $4.49 with free shipping.  Note that the inside photos make it look as if the pages are black, but if you look at the side of the book or look at the books they have listed with other covers you’ll see they’re actually white.  For black pages, see the next journal.

Kids (or grown ups) who like to use gel pens are likely to love these black journals that cost less than $2 with shipping.  The listing says it’s for “two pieces” so you may get two journals, but I’m not positive.  Either way, it’s a great deal for blank black journals!

Lastly, these little portable mini journals (currently $2.13 with free shipping) are not really bullet journals at all, but they’re so cute that I’m really tempted to get a few and find a fun way to use them for some sort of homeschooling fun!

Note that this is a small sampling of the bullet journals eBay has for under $5 and there are some really fantastic ones for just a little bit more.  If you want to splurge and get yourself a higher end BuJo, they also have great deals on those.

Remember that you do typically have to wait longer for eBay buys than you do at places like Amazon with Prime shipping.  It’s a trade off, but a great one if you have the time to wait or if you’re trying to spread your money around other places besides the big corporations.  🙂

If they’re out of a certain design, chances are you can just do a search and find a half dozen other vendors who are selling the same product for about the same price, too.

Do you use bullet journals in your homeschool?  What are your favorite ways to use Bujos?
