Setting up a September bullet journal is exciting. Why? Because September tends to be a month of change; it’s a month where life moves forward whether we’re ready or not. There’s no better way to live in September than to celebrate it.
As the summer days fade into chilly fall weather, embrace the season! Dig out your fall flannels, cover up with a warm beanie and line up for that Pumpkin Spice.
And, of course, bring your notebooks and pens for some fun September bullet journaling and planning.
September Bullet Journal Ideas
The bullet journal ideas you’ll see for September can be hard to summarize, although don’t be surprised that fall themes are popular for this month.
You can dress up your bujo for fall by drawing leaves, twigs, acorns, mushrooms, and other natural items and plants that we typically see more of in the fall.
One thing I haven’t seen very much yet is squirrels. Here in the US we have squirrels pretty much everywhere, and they are busier than ever in the fall – building their winter nests and most of all, burying nuts.
Birds flying south in a V-pattern is another traditional fall motif that hasn’t been overdone in bullet journal art. Just throwing some ideas out there!
Alright, ready to see what kind of bujo ideas we love for September? Keep ‘a scrollin’!

Cute Fall Themes – Mushrooms
I love using mushrooms as a theme in my September bullet journal. First of all, I see mushrooms all the time in September, so it makes sense! Secondly, mushrooms are super easy to draw. And the result is so cute!
I was inspired by one of thejournaltea‘s old posts to make this September bullet journal cover page which features boho style fall leaves. I like the color combination of the light orange and lavender purple. It’s a fun take on the classic autumn leaves motif and it also reminds me of the magic leaves in the wind from the movie Pocahontas!
