My Bullet Journal Supplies

Ever since I discovered the world of bullet journaling, I've been wanting to up my game. I find the whole concept of customizing my own planner to be incredibly helpful and useful! I can create my own trackers, my own goals, my own weekly spreads, and even my blog planners!
If you haven't heard of this method, check out my post on bullet journaling here or read about bullet journals from the creator here
In any case, here are a few things that I've been using to take my bullet journal to the next level. I may even do a flip through of my weekly spreads if you guys would like to see that in a future post (and if so, please leave a comment below!)


  • Leuchtturm1917 notebook: I've upgraded from my grid Moleskine to a Leuchtturm1917 dotted. I'm still trying it out but I do like that the Leuchtturm is a bit wider as it gives me more room to work with. I can do a side-by-side comparison if you guys would find that helpful. 
  • Muji pens in 0.38 tip: I love a very fine tipped pen and Muji makes the best ones! I got a bunch of the black pens in the ultra-fine 0.38mm and I also got them in a lot of other colors as well. This is my primary writing utensil when filling out my bullet journal with to-dos. 
  • Tombow Dual-Tip Brush pens: These pens have taken the calligraphy world by storm and for good reason - they are perfect for hand-lettering! The brush tip helps create beautiful letters and the ink is water-based, meaning you can draw on watercolor paper and use a water brush to create beautiful water-color paintings! 
  • Staedtler Triplus Fineliner pens: Fineliner pens are an absolute must for creating cute illustrations. These fineliners are my favorite but I also have friends and fellow bullet journalers who swear by Micron pens. It's all up to you. 
  • Crayola Super Tips markers: Believe it or not, these pens are actually really good for hand lettering! If you're starting out hand lettering or calligraphy, I recommend practicing with these because they're super inexpensive (the 50 pack is $25 making them 50 cents per marker!) and quite forgiving to use. 
  • Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pens: I love using the small writing version of the big dual brush-tip pens I mentioned above. It helps me create a lot of the calligraphy you guys see here!
  • Washi Tape: Like any good crafter, I use washi tape in my bullet journal. You can get them anywhere but I like this gold foil set because it adds a bit of luxury to my bullet journal, I think.  
Are there any bullet journalers out there? What are some of the supplies you use?

  2. Dear Deborah,
    I have to admit that I nearly stopped writing by hand. If I do this I take only very short notes about things I don't want to forget. Normally I use my notebooks or my phone where I write everything important for me.
    Honestly, I think this is a pity when I see and read your wonderful post ...
