Weeklies

Weekly spreads are mainly to list down your to-dos for the week. More often than not, many bujo gurus use this to summarize the activities they need to do for the entire week.

Here's another scenario. Take for example an event that you're trying to plan for. Most people plan days or weeks in advance right? So for a certain spread, you dedicate the entire space for everything related to that event you're planning. It is better for organization and more effective in terms of segmenting info.
