If you’re looking for a clean weekly spread that could easily be set up in under 10 minutes… Then look no further! I love the simple to-do list on the left side of the page and the small calendar up top really giving it that minimalist vibe. Plus, it doesn’t get much easier than using some bujo stickers to get a very uniform look!

Horizontal Weekly Spread

Instead of setting your week up vertically, this basic spread is the perfect example of a horizontal layout! I love the super simple and large numbers for the days and her handwriting for the daily tasks is so satisfying… If you just want the bare-bones layout, this is definitely going to give you some ideas. Get back to the basics with this one!

Ok, I can always appreciate a perfectly straight line when it comes to bullet journals since mine never look this good lol… I’m definitely going to have to get the stencil she used to make this!. So if you’re a stickler when it comes to the actual layout of the weekly spread, you’re going to like this one. My favorite part is the icons for each day of the week. Stencil your way to a super minimal (and almost perfect) layout!

There’s just something super satisfying about the headers she’s using for each day of the week on this one. It’s simple, to the point, and can easily be replicated in no time! So if you want a minimal spread with a little bit of color and a nice cursive monthly header… this is the one to take inspiration from. Block out your days and get to work!

Drop Shadow Minimal Spread

Now, if you’ve read any of my other posts… you’ll know that I’m in love with drop shadows. So it’s no surprise that I really like this spread. I love how she added just a little bit of color at the top to break things up and her handwriting for the daily headers is amazing. Set up your week and drop a shadow like its hot!

Ok… so if you aren’t a fan of drop shadows like myself, then this might be more your style. I think this is the true definition of minimalism when it comes to bullet journals. The “M” in the top left corner is signifying the month of May and each day of the week is spread out horizontally. Plus, she has a small and super neat calendar overview in the top right that you can’t see in this picture. Go 100% minimal with this May weekly spread!
Geometric Minimalist Spread

This is a great spread for anyone that whats the minimal look but still wants a little character or “warmth”. I love the daily layout for each task but where I think this one really shines is the simple border that they put around each one. It takes away from the basicness of a minimal spread and that’s definitely something I’m going to take inspiration from! Add some geometry to your weekly layout!
Bold Minimal Spread

This weekly spread is a great example if you want more of a handwritten vibe but still want to keep it pretty basic… I love the bold daily headers! After her week is complete, I’d love to see how it turned out with the big dividers and how things filled out. Go bold this week!

Gosh… I’m really digging this layout! Everything from the amazing “font” / handwriting for the daily headers to the colors she chose, I’m in love. She even had room to include an inspirational quote sticker on the bottom right beneath the to-do list. Add some color to your minimal spread with this super cute spread!
Butterfly Minimal Weekly

I don’t think I could draw those adorable butterflies but I’m definitely going to take some inspiration from how this spread is laid out! The daily numbers and the clean-lined borders are something I think I can handle lol. So if you want to break out the ruler and get your week set up in a matter of minutes, this is the spread for you! This minimal spread might cause a butterfly effect

Speaking of breaking out the ruler… This easy minimalist weekly spread is as easy as connecting the dots! It’s just about as basic as it gets… plus, the best part is that you can easily use any color for the headers to match your theme. They even have a super cool abstract drawing on the bottom right of the page that goes perfectly with the minimal vibe. Don’t rule this one out!

How about this super fine-lined weekly spread?? This weekly spread is the epitome of a basic layout. With a simple calendar up in the top left corner and the daily tasks spread out over both pages, this one is a perfect minimalist spread! Break out the microns and get to setting up your weekly!
Minimalist Weekly Spread With Circles

Looking to add some shapes to break up the harsh lines of a basic spread? This is the best of both worlds when it comes to a super minimal spread! I love the numbered daily headers paired with the simple layout of the tasks. Plus, she adds some flower doodles on the sides to give it a little flair. Well, I guess it’s not really fair to call them doodles but if I tried, they would definitely be doodles. Circle back to this spread anytime you need some ideas!
Outlined Weekly Spread

Speaking of adding some circles and color to your spread… how about this fun layout?? I love the way she outlined the daily boxes and used rounded corners to give it a warmer vibe. You could even keep it all black and white, remove the doodles at the bottom and go super minimal. Outline your week with this fun spread!
Black Paper Minimal Spread

What do you think of this black paper?? I love the contrast between the paper and the white ink but I’m not sure if I would switch over to something like this full time. But the way she sets up the daily tasks then starts the next day right after is something I’m really digging. She even had room for a tiny little habit tracker in the bottom left. Go for the chalkboard vibe with this bujo spread!

I’m a sucker for a super simple highlighter header! They’re just too easy and look good every time… plus, it’s hard to mess up lol. With the option of any color and adding a bolder monthly header, this is a spread I’m going to take some ideas from. Make this the highlight of your day!

Now if you aren’t a fan of the highlighter headers (how could you not be! ) then this easy spread might be up your alley. The headers are simple little drop shadow boxes with alternating colors and they’re almost as simple to set up as the highlighter ones! Just choose colors that match your theme, drop a few shadows and you’re done. Keep it simple!
Minimalist Cursive Weekly Spread

This is similar to the handwritten spread from above but I love the way they use the entire width of the page. But my favorite part has to be the way they have the daily header on the right side instead of the typical left side. It makes it super easy to see the daily tasks and keeps it clean at the same time! Stay on the write page!

Sticking with the full-width theme, here is an awesome weekly layout for the minimalist in you! If I were setting up a spread like this I would use a purple for the borders and would have it set up in a few minutes. But even if you don’t like the full-width look, you could split the space in two and have an even more compact look. Choose your favorite color!
Dotted Weekly Layout

Ready to break out your dot work?? This weekly layout has super simple dotted borders breaking up each day and the simple font is perfect! You could even add an easy habit or mood tracker on the right-hand side where the flowers are. Do(n)t sleep on this one!
Cute Minimal Weekly Spread

If you’re looking for a cute weekly spread while still having a minimalist vibe to it, then this one will surely give you some inspiration! The way she blended the two colors for the background of the daily headers almost makes it look like watercolor… Plus the font she used for “June” and each day is super pretty. Easily add a watercolor vibe to your minimal weekly spread with this idea!
