I hope your weekend was awesome. We are experiencing some warmer than normal weather which is awesome. Sort of….because, fruit flies!
Today’s post is another Bullet Journal one. I wanted to show you all my bullet journal supplies. I love stationary. I even volunteer at work to put it away. Now clicking on these links are cool. They are not affiliate links so no problem there. So here we go!
- My Journal
My first Bullet Journal was just a random notebook from my local Dollarama. I didn’t know if I would like Bullet Journaling so I didn’t want to use something too expensive. My second journal is a Leuchtturm 1917. I got it for Mother’s day from Goulet Pens. I also found out that my local Indigo Bookstore now carries the Leuchtturm. I love my dotted notebook because no rulers are needed. Well, I don’t need one.
- Fountain Pen
Along with my Leuchtturm I got a PILOT METROPOLITAN. I love this pen. It came with 6 cartridges and also a demo ink. The pen itself came with one black cartridge. As a little tip when shopping, Goulet Pens offers a bullet journal starter pack. They throw in a hand written note and a lollipop.
- Post-it Notes
I use my post-its to mark the pages for things I turn to a lot. I have one for each month so I can easily flip to them. The only other page marker I have is for my grocery list. I got the idea from Little Coffee Fox. Why write it out all the time? I just put a post it next to each thing in my list and remove it when I buy it. Easy- Peesy.
- Fine Liner
When drawing my lines out for my many spreads, I use my Faber Castell pen. I use the ‘F’ size. I just found a set as well in the bookstore of colored inked ones. It is on my birthday list.
To add some jazz to everything I use my Sharpie Pens (Fine Point). My weeklies are always done in these pens. They are easier to use to draw lines. I also love that they don’t coat the side of my hand with ink. They rarely smudge.
- Color Coding
I color code in my journal. Makes life easier. Especially when I am using my time line. To do this, I use Staedtler Triplus Fineliners. They do ghost a little on my pages but they don’t bleed which makes me happy. I got mine on sale at Walmart.
- Washi Tape
I hardly use it, but when I do it is to stick something in my journal. In my first journal, I was using it to separate days. You can get Washi absolutely everywhere. A colleague who just got into bullet journalling messaged me last night excited that she found some cheap ones at work. I have even used some from the Dollarama.
So there you are. My supplies, to which you in no way need to use. Like I said before, all you need to bullet journal is a notebook and a pen. I just like colors.
What do you all use to keep track of your days?
Keep smiling all,
