BLE and Bullet Journaling — Katie’s Bright Kitchen

Have you tried bullet journaling?  I wanted to, but it seemed so complicated.  I read articles and even a book on how it MUST be done.  The thought of being so organized sounded wonderful, but it also sounded so complicated that my perfectionist self wouldn't even try it in fear of doing it "wrong."
