Setting Up My Bullet Journal - Part 4 The Hole Punch




DearREADERS,
Linda Stufflebean and I have been having a conversation on Facebook about the rings getting in the way of left-handed writers. The right-handed folks have had the same problems for decades but on the opposite page. One thing I like about the Levenger Rings is that one uses eleven instead of the usual 3-ring binders that as school girls we used for our paperwork.

Either way the pages can be written on and then added to the Levenger Rings just as we did with our paperwork in school.

However, 11 rings hold the paper instead of a measley 3. How many times did you have to use those old-fashioned reinforcement labels because top loading sheet protectors hadn't been invented yet? A young grandchild once tried to eat these "flat Cheerios" but I digress.

So to go with the program, I ordered a Levenger paper punch. There are several models:  
And this isn't just any hole punch since the resulting punch-outs look like this:

SO WHAT DID LINDA AND I DECIDE TO DO?
Being the smart gal that she is, Linda suggested writing on the page and then inserting it into the Levenger Ring binder we've made. We both like the idea that we can move pages around using this ring binder system.

What are the plans for your bullet journal?
