THE FAVORITE JOURNAL OF ALL TIME
Seriously, this little red book goes with me everywhere!
- Notebook – One popular notebook for bullet journaling is the Leuchtturm1917 Hardcover Medium Dotted Notebook which comes in a multitude of colors. It is a durable, quality notebook, priced under $20, that will stand the test of time which is something I’m willing to splurge on.
DOODLE THE RAINBOW
A life without color is pretty gray.
- Colorful Pens – Colorful pens will bring life to your bullet journal. My favorite is Staedtler Triplus Fineliner Pen Assorted Colors 10-Color Set. If you like 5-star reviews like I do, you will love these!
BEST BASIC BLACK
Because you need the basics, and the basics need you.
- Black Pens – I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like a fine black ink pen. The Sakura Pigma 30061 Micron Blister Card Ink Pen Set is a bullet journalist favorite. With these Micron pens, you will enjoy skip-free writing with a fine 5-point ideal for both writing and drawing.
TRACE WITH STENCILS:
It’s not cheating – don’t worry – all the Instagramer’s use it.
- Stencils – Remember using these when you were a kid?! They were so much fun and you have the excuse to use them again to enhance your bullet journal layouts. It’s an inexpensive DIY way to decorate your journal!
Because you’ve loved stickers since you’ve been 5 years old.
Bullet Journal for Productivity
I used to journal a lot when I was younger. I would doodle and make lists and paste little stickers all over my planners.
But today, using a bullet journal is turning into a science. There are rules and templates and beautiful pages.
I wanted to see if my productivity methods can be adapted into a bullet journal. Everyone loves the magic that Post it notes can do to your life – but can a bullet journal provide the same results?
