Using my Nuuna as my Bullet Journal

Hello lovelies, 🙂

Our world seems to be a weird place at the moment. One little virus attracts attention around the world. In my city, we have 17 people who are ill and a lot of tests are still going on. So, please stay safe and be careful.

Yesterday, I realised that I wrote about the situation in my journal. I wrote about it a couple of days constantly. At first it was just a sentence and now it is one of the biggest topics. Because of the browsing through my journal I thought of a review to the usage.

At first for those of you who have a quick or first view to my blog: I used a Leuchtturm1917 in the last three years of my journaling. I totally adore these notebooks. I like their thin paper and the dot grid pattern as well.

But for the year 2020 I decided to try a notebook by Nuuna.

Here are some quick facts:

  • 256 pages in bright white
  • the pages are numbered
  • Dot grid (3,7mm)
  • 120g heavy paper
  • DIN A5+ (165 mm x 220mm)
  • Softover
  • no index, no pen loop, no book marks and no elastic band
  • price: 25,90 Euro

I have been using it for three months now and I miss my Leuchtturm.

The Nuuna has great advantages like the bright white pages and the size of the notebook is bigger than a standard A5 notebook. Even with the small dots the notebook looks bigger. The paper thickness is great because you can use different types of pens and highlighters. And the cover of the notebooks have a wide variety.

If you are someone like me, who loves book marks and an elastic band to secure it, then this notebook may not be your first pick. The missing index is not a huge deal but I like notebooks where there is one prepared. 😉 But my personel difficulty is the dot grid. 3,7mm is too small for me. I have a quite big hand writing; one square is too small and two squares are too big. I am a 5 mm dot grid girl. 😀

Am I going to go back to my Leuchtturm notebook? After these three months? Nooooo 😉 because the points which seem to be disadvantages for me, are not a huge thing for me. I will use it for the whole year. But I am not sure if I would use one as my bullet journal next year again. It might not be a good bullet journal, for me, but it definitely is a great notebook.

I have started a gigantic planner and journal chaos this year, I will give you an update soon😅

So this is all for now. Sorry that there are not any pictures but you can visit my Instagram account where I post regularly pictures of my journal. 🙂

Wisdom of the day: If you do not try it, you would not know if you could love it. ❤️

Love to you all and stay healthy,

Chrissi

  1. I always love a good notebook review! 💕 If you’re looking for a notebook with similar page thickness but 5mm dots and an elastic band I can recommend the Lemome notebook for very bold dots and Perfectly Penned for very subtle dots. I have used them both as bullet journals and they held up really well. They don’t have a pre-made index though.

    • Dear Emmie,
      Thank you for your advice. 🙂
      I have one in my collection, but I haven’t tried it out yet. Your recommendation makes me want to give it a try as soon as possible 🙈💖
