Before diving in, I would like to share with you the materials that I wish someone had shared with me when I first started my bullet journal journey(tongue twister haha) instead of the overpriced books and markers that the pros always recommend.
Getting these good basics tools will allow you to explore and find out if you like bullet journalling without spending a bomb. Plus, they can last you for quite awhile.
- I use this notebook now, which is a good but cheaper(less than half the price) alternative to the popular favourite Leuchtturm1917.
- These colorful markers have a broad tip and fine tip that you can use for most of your decorations. My favourite!
- These stencils are less than $10 and there are 20pcs of all kinds of shapes that you can play around with. Super fun.
Yup, that’s all you need for a start! 🙂

You will eventually be so familiar with them that you won’t have to refer to it anymore, but for the first few entries, you will still need this page for reference. 🙂
Let’s look at some examples of them!
