When you first start using a bullet journal the entire idea of collections can take some getting used to. I was accustomed to a more rigid system. But with bullet journal collections you can adjust it to meet your unique needs. There are so many cool collection ideas out there so I put together this huge list, though I’m sure there are more.

Productivity Collections

The thing I love about bullet journals is how much more productive I’ve become with them. Seriously, I’ve learned to manage my time so much more effectively since I started using a bullet journal. It has made it easier to keep track of class assignments, work schedules, and even setting aside downtime for me to rest. Here are a few collection ideas I’ve used:

  • To-do lists
  • Task Lists
  • Homework assignments
  • Business plan lists
  • Time block notes

Personal Bullet Journal Collections

At this point, I’ve used every single one of these collection ideas in my bullet journals at least once. The habit tracker and shopping list are probably the most consistently used.

  • Habit tracker
  • Mood tracker
  • Personal goals
  • Health tracker
  • Future log
  • Events and appointments
  • Wishlist
  • Shopping list/Grocery List

Health Collection Ideas

These types of collections have been huge for me. I always considered myself a fairly healthy eater but until I started keeping a food diary, I didn’t realize how much little snacking I was doing throughout the day. If weight loss is one of your goals I definitely recommend adding a weight log or a food diary collection to your journal.

  • Log of weight loss/gain
  • Food diary
  • Fitness diary/workout routine
  • Weight loss goals
  • Fitness goals
  • Tracking your measurements
  • Sleep Tracker

Household Collections

If your house is feeling a bit chaotic one of these collections can be great tools to help you reign things in. While my home repairs/project list is ever growing, it is incredibly satisfying to see how much I have accomplished on that list.

  • Chore list
  • Spring cleaning notes
  • Daily cleaning to-do lists
  • Weekly cleaning to-do lists
  • Home repairs to make
  • Numbers of home repair contractors
  • Recipe list
  • Food ideas
  • Meal plan/meal prep

Favorites/Compilation Lists

These collections are always fun to compile when I want to let my mind wander. Or when I stumble across something new that I want to remember for later.

  • Favorite movies
  • Favorite TV shows
  • Favorite songs and artists
  • Books to read
  • Books already read
  • Things to do
  • Places to see
  • Bucket list
  • Favorite quotes
  • Personal affirmations
  • Crafts to try

Financial Collections

Struggle to keep your money in the bank? One of these collection ideas may help you out with that. Keeping a record of my daily expenses definitely helped me reign in my spending a bit.

  • Specific savings goals
  • Budget
  • Daily personal expenses
  • Daily business expenses
  • Records for tax returns
  • Household finance info
  • Debt tracker
  • Bill payment tracker
  • Money savings challenges


I keep a log of all the places I’ve traveled to. The list is short but it’s been growing every year which is fun to see. While I’m traveling I also like to add a little trip journal to my bullet journal to remember the people I meet and the fun things we did.

  • Places you want to go
  • Saving money for travel
  • Places you have been
  • Trip log
  • Shopping list for traveling items
  • Souvenirs to bring back


I haven’t really used much here but my sister has a collection of funny things her kids say. It’s hysterical to read through. I’ll definitely be doing that when I have kids of my own. I also really like the idea of keeping a list of family game night ideas. Seems like a great way to always have a go-to list of the families favorite games.

  • Funny quotes from your kids
  • Places to bring your family
  • Kid’s activity ideas
  • Family game night ideas
  • School shopping lists
  • Allergy/diet info for each kid
  • Insurance info
  • Pet tracker/info
