Went a little nuts this morning putting together a list of bullet journal supplies I love and use. This was fun to put together and I am hoping you will get some bullet journal ideas and inspiration.
Why All The Stuff?
You can start a bullet journal with just a notebook and a pen; however, to me the fun comes in decorating it and making it look pretty. I get bullet journal inspiration just from playing around with all of these supplies. I’m not talking about Instagram worthy shots, although I would be really happy if I had that type of talent.
Yet, the stickers, pens, markers, and nice paper that I added to this kit make bullet journaling so much more fun.
But Isn’t It Wasting Time To Do All That?
I’ve heard some people ask on social media whether it is a waste of time for those of us in the planner community to spend so much time decorating our planners prior to using them.
While one could certainly argue that it takes up good productivity time, for me it helps me to keep on task because I like using my bullet journal. I like looking at it.
I have Attention Deficit (ADHD) and it is hard for me sometimes to stay on task and remember all of the things I have to do. It is even harder to keep it all organized.
Having a bullet journal just works for me.
I think it works largely because I decorate it. Otherwise, looking in or writing in my journal would just be another thing I have to remember to do.
I hope that makes sense.
I find it worth it.
Also, It is FUN
We need to bring more fun into out lives. We live in a world that is always busy. There is rarely time to just stop and do what you love. Combining creativity and art with something you have to do to be productive makes it feel like you have a great excuse to have fun!
Anyway, I hope you find this list of stuff fun. If you click on the items, you will see I wrote a written description of why I recommend the stuff and a link to purchase. Enjoy 🙂
