I have recently fallen back in love with my bullet journal! For several months I lost interest in it – I didn’t know how I wanted to display content and so I lost all confidence. However, I have been reading lots of bloggers’ bullet journal posts, scrolling through Pinterest and watching Youtube videos and made me miss journalling.
I have some bullet journal essentials that I am always reaching for. If you are looking to start bullet journalling you can read some items I use and how I use them in my journal. I have listed 5 of my essentials that I use the most.
Washi tape is so fun to use. You can get so many different colours and designs, so you can design your bullet journal how you want too. I like to use wash tape around the edges of my pages and sometimes to break pages up, so it isn’t too overwhelming with lots of writing. My bullet journal is the perfect place to display my ever growing range of washi tapes. I love cutting and sticking, haha!
I have been loving stickers lately, especially the plush stickers. By adding stickers to my pages, they are immediately more colourful and animated. I enjoy using stickers to decorate the front of my bullet journal too. You can get so many different things in sticker form, so there is something for everyone.
I am a sucker for buying colourful pens, I have far too many, but I just can’t help myself haha! I like to use different colours for titles and subtitles. Using the different colours not only makes my pages more colourful and pretty, but allows me to use them to categorise lists. By using various colours for different tasks makes it easy to find content.
Highlighters are a great way to tick tasks off my to-do list once I have completed them. I sometimes use highlighters to decorate titles or subtitles. Also to highlight specific tasks or lines to bring it to my attention when I reflect on my bullet journal. Makes my pages bright and colourful.
I use a ruler to draw tables for my habit trackers as well as to design my weekly or monthly layouts. As I cannot draw a straight line freehand even if there are dots to follow, haha!
These are 5 of my essentials for my bullet journal. If you journal, what are your essentials for you? Be sure to link any of your bullet journal posts below, so everyone can read your content.
