I found out about the 'Dutch door' system for your bullet journal when I watched @Alexandra_Plans's video on YouTube. After that I just knew I had to try it out!

The 'Dutch door' system is a way of creating a weekly spread in your bullet journal, where part of the page remains stationary and the other part is normal and you can turn the pages as usual. This system can be applied horizontally or vertically. The difference is that with the horizontal you have to tear off part of the pages, while with the vertical way you just have to fold a page in half vertically and move it around as needed.

I decided to try the horizontal way, because I believe it's gonna work better for me (and I was feeling very daring on that day!!!). The first thing you need to do is to plan ahead how you'll use the space on the pages and measure everything in detail, because once you've cut those pages there's no turning back!!!

When you're ready, cut with a pair of scissors horizontally the pages where you've marked them.

Then hold the cut pages and pull really carefully towards you. This can be a bit tricky and nerve racking but just be patient and carefull and you'll do it ;)

After that just go ahead and fill in the pages as you've plant from the beginning. You may also add some washi tape at the top of the pages you've cut. I decided to leave it as it is and here is the end result:
