Weekly layouts are often the most prevalent layouts in a bullet journal. When you create this layout so often, you might become bored or tired of the same layout all the time. I like to change up my layouts every so often and keep them fairly minimal. Below are some great minimal weekly bullet journal layouts that I love and recommend!

Vertical Weekly Layout Ideas
Vertical layouts are my absolute favorite weekly layout. Vertical designs are ones with daily sections that are taller than they are wide. This style is my favorite because it is laid out similar to a to-do list (top to bottom) which I find helpful for organizing my days and weeks.
Here is one of my most used weekly layouts. I love it because it is simple, practical, and can be changed up easily. Since there are 8 boxes and only 7 days in a week, the 8th box can either be removed or changed up to be a tracker, goals, or really anything you’d like.
This is my current layout. I love that it uses few lines and does not take too much time to create. Plus, you can change up the color and washi tape each week to keep things fresh. I also love that it is a vertical layout.
I have always loved weekly layouts which include a section that is dedicated to the week itself and not only the individuals days in the week. This layout by evydraws has just that! It includes an overview of the week and some week-based to-dos before it goes into daily details.
This layout by @bujowithkat is gorgeous! Its very similar to my layout but is even more simple and utilizes really creative washi tape details! I love it!
This weekly spread by @flyingpaperwords has no lines! I wish I felt comfortable working with no lines, I aspire to be able to use this layout one day! Great work, you’ve really nailed a clean, minimalistic look!
We only get to see a snippet of this layout by @inkbyjeng, but I love that it splits the daily vertical sections into two rows. This is perfect for someone with a smaller to-do list each day. I love that it also shows a view of where the week lays within the month, that is always helpful. This layout shows beautifully how a minimal spread can incorporate some simple art too!
This layout by @pipettesandpens has a neat spin on a normal vertical weekly spread. It functions similarly to a timeline and keeps the daily sections flexible and functional. So, if you have a busy day that needs more room next to a chill day that needs less room, they can share space instead of wasting or cramming.
I love the look of stamps in bullet journaling, and @sab_terri does an amazing job of keeping her layout minimal, while still incorporating some amazing photography and stamps!
This weekly spread by @the.paperholic does an amazing job of keeping her layout very minimal utilizing white space but still keeping it creative. This makes it so easy to look at without feeling overwhelmed.
This last vertical weekly spread by @journalbeanie is a cute little spread that separates each day using @mildliners. This gives the layout a pop of color and makes it more easy to use. I also love the little doodle!
Horizontal Weekly Layout Ideas
Opposite of vertical spread, horizontal weekly layouts are wider than they are tall. This style is more popular than the vertical ones, though not my personal favorite. These layouts are gorgeous, check them out!
This spread by @bujo.auslife is so neat and easy to create! It appears like she creates it as she goes using only two pens. It is minimal and so very easy to use. Sometimes we cant decide in advance how much or how little space we need for each day. A layout like this one allows you to decide that day or that week, instead of months in advance.
Here is another layout by @bujowithkat. I love the lack of lines, the washi tape, and the brown paper look of this minimal spread. It is simple, clean, functional, and great to look at!
If you haven’t noticed already, I love a clean looking layout, and this might be one of my favorites by @bullet_journalish. I love the molded clean writing and the simple bullet style. Brings a person back to their bullet journaling roots!
I really love layouts like this one by @cocorae.bujo; they do a good job at being functional, minimal, and still incorporating other important things into a week. Great work!
Like nearly all of the spreads before and after this one, it does a great job of staying minimal and keeping to bullet journal roots but also incorporates some creativity and art. Great work @feeneve!
This layout is one of my own from September 2017. I tried by hand at layouts without lines and learned that I didn’t love it. However, I have learned a lot and think that it could easily be improved by utilizing bolder daily headers.
I created this layout for a client and absolutely LOVE it. Since creating this layout for her, I have used it countless times for other clients. It incorporates color and utilizes white space very well! You can get a hand-drawn bullet journal made just for you here!
This layout is unique because the daily headers are as big as the spaces underneath. Its fun and incorporates space for the future instead of weekend spaces. I love this super unique minimal weekly spread by @letteringbyrebagel
Here is another layout I created for a client! This was a special request, and I love how it utilizes the bold lettering and gold detailing but is still minimalistic. This layout inspired the one I talked about previously. What do you think of it?
@minimal_almanac has an Instagram profile absolutely fun of beautiful minimalistic layouts, and I love it! They are so cohesive and clean looking. I highly recommend checking it out!
Here is another layout by @ofpipettesandpens! I love the simplicity!
This layout by @helenes.journal is the journal that inspired so many of my own layouts. However, I cannot find her social media anymore to give credit.
This layout by @vanislebujo is another cute yet minimal layout that incorporates geometric art. Doesn’t get much better than that!
Other Miscellaneous Layout Ideas
These layouts do not easily fit into any of the previous categories, but still deserve limelight as a gorgeous minimal weekly bullet journal layout.
This minimal layout by @wolkenmeere is beautiful utilizing white space, creative doodling, AND stamps. Very well made!
This last weekly spread is less minimalistic than those that came before it; however, it is still very simple, and it utilizes space very well. If you are looking for something minimal but still very detailed, you might want to try something like this spread by @the.bullet.journey.
