If you want to take charge of your life by planning in advance or you simply want to write down your thoughts somewhere, you must try bullet journaling. By maintaining bullet journals, you can track the past, manage the present and design the future. I personally prefer the bullet journal weekly spread as you can plan a week in advance. You can draw up the layout every week and add tasks to each day to get a visual representation of how your week is going to be like.
This article is a list of weekly spreads that you can use to organize your week. We have divided the list into minimalist bullet journals and some decorative ones. So read on.

Here is the list of top 20 minimalist bullet journal weekly spreads:
