As somebody who’s been Bullet Journaling for the longest time and buying stationery like it’s my job, I’m a bit of a specialist, and I can recommend you some good stuff you’ll definitely love.

Are you starting a Bullet Journal? If so, you may be wondering just what supplies you’ll need to start your journey.

Don’t worry – it doesn’t have to be overwhelming! This blog post provides a comprehensive list of all the Bullet Journal supplies for beginners that you’ll need.

There is also a free guide to Bullet Journal supplies at the end of the post, so be sure to scroll until the end.

But first, here are a few tips.

Tips For Buying Supplies For Beginners

It’s easy to get overwhelmed by all the supplies out there and spend a lot of money on things you don’t need.

So here are a few tips for buying your first Bullet Journal supplies:

  • Don’t overdo it

As a beginner, you might want to buy ALL the supplies, but if you do (like I did), you might spend a lot of money n things you’ll not use in your journal. So start with some basic supplies, and as you Bullet Journal more, you’ll get a better feeling for the supplies you’ll use.

  • Start cheap

As you explore your Bullet Journal style and the supplies you need to create it, I recommend you get something affordable because chances are you won’t love ALL the things you’ll buy.

  • Swatch your pens

Depending on the journal, the paper color will affect the way the colors of the markers are displayed. And you’ll want to make sure there are no issues like ghosting or bleeding.

Ok, you got all the most essential tips, time to talk about supplies. Oh, and be sure to scroll until the end for some more recommendations.
