These are the supplies that I use, in case you were ever curious! :)


Bullet Journal Supplies

A notebook and a pen.

All you really need for the Bullet Journal is a notebook and a pen. 

I use the Official Bullet Journal Notebook. Here's a review I wrote on it and 10 reasons why you should grab one.

I personally prefer using a fountain pen to write with. I use the Classic Mini TWSBI 580, Pilot Metropolitan, and Pilot Vanishing Point for everyday writing. I keep it simple with a gray or black ink.

I use a separate notebook to keep track of some collections related to my blog & business. You can read all about it here

I enjoy using tabs to flip to page easier.

I prefer drawing straight lines with a ruler. 

 

If you have tiny handwriting like I do, then you might enjoy the Slicci. It's a fine-point gel pen with vibrant color.

These are the most popular colorful pens that Bullet Journalists swear by, with good reason. They are versatile and have a fine point to make adding touches of color easy.

The Rhodiarama is what I like to practice my handwriting with, especially for the #RockYourHandwriting challenge

It has fantastic paper at 90gsm, which means it can handle nearly all pens except for really wet inks and markers. Bleed-through is very rare. 

I highly recommend it. It has very little, if any, show-through.

I tend to use calligraphy dip pens and fountain pens in it and it holds up beautifully. 

Rhodia pads are pretty great for a variety of reasons. You can sketch out ideas, practice your handwriting, draw on them, anything you want. They are fountain-pen friendly and tend to be a joy to use. They're great if you're practicing calligraphy or practicing your handwriting with your fountain pens. 


Fountain Pens

Both the Pilot Varsity and the Platinum Preppy make great starter fountain pens. If you want to make the absolute lowest investment, you can't go wrong with these. They write well and the colors are vibrant. 

If you would like a disposable option, grab a Pilot Varsity

If you want a refillable option, grab a Preppy.

The Pilot Metropolitan is THE best starter fountain pen when you're ready to step into the world of fountain pens. It is fantastic for beginners and experienced fountain pen users alike. I recommend the fine nib. You can get them in a variety of colors and options.

 

The Mini TWSBI 580 Classic is one of my favorite fountain pens to write with. Even though it has a fine point, the shading is fantastic. 

It is a piston filler so it makes refilling pretty simple. If you already like fountain pens, I highly recommend grabbing a TWSBI at some point. 

If you're looking for a more economical TWSBI, the TWSBI Eco is another great one.
