Keeping your privates private – The Dutch Door Dilemma
We’ve all seen Dutch Doors over the internet and we know you have been thinking about trying dutch doors in your bullet journal. Creating a bullet journal dutch door can help give you a ton more realestate to write in during your week!
Another clever way to use your bullet journal dutch door is to make a “fauxbonich” which is a fake hobonichi notebook, you can learn more in our post on what hobonichi is
You have a journal – and one of the biggest issues that come with it is keeping your “intimates” intimate. It could be anything from conception trackers, period trackers, all the way through to passwords, card expiry dates etc. Now – I want to be clear here – its ever a great idea having important passwords in a journal that could go missing. However – I KNOW I am naughty because I do pop them in there – so this post is to go through some clever ways on how not to make them overly public.
One great way to do this is through a dutch door. Now if you haven’t heard of a dutch door, don’t feel overwhelmed, simply put its a cut in your journal to make the pages smaller OR its where you fold a page to hid information. I have rounded up some great examples below. Now another example of this is to use an envelope and place your unmentionables in the envelope! Either on a wee card or on some dot paper to match your journal.
So having said that in the most simple way; lets get to some great examples!
