Bullet journaling is a great way to keep yourself organized, but it can be a little daunting to see all the options you have when it comes to supplies. There is a seemingly endless supply of pens and notebooks and stickers to try, and no one has the time or money to give them all a go. I thought it would be helpful to post an updated roundup of the bullet journal supplies I know and love.
If I had to pick my must have items, which I use to create 90% of my journal, it would be these 4 things:
- a notebook – Leuchtturm1917 A5 Dotted Hardcover Notebook
- a ruler – 12 inch and 6 inch
- a black ink pen – Marvy Le Pen Technical Drawing Pen 0.05
- a gray marker – TombowABT Dual Brush Pens in N75 and N95
These are my basic supplies and if I were limited to only these items, I know I could still have a great looking and functioning journal. There are other journal and pen options out there, and if you read on I’ll list a few of the ones I’ve tried. I’m really glad to be able to narrow down to just these items if I need to, because it saves a lot of weight for travel. In some cases I only take my journal and a pen and nothing more.
