In this guide, we’re going to explore the must-have journaling supplies that can transform your Bullet Journal experience from good to great.

As a fellow stationery enthusiast, I know firsthand the thrill (and occasional anxiety) that comes with shopping for new Bullet Journal supplies. Picture walking into a store or browsing online, only to be greeted by an endless array of pens, notebooks, stickers, and washi tapes. It’s like being a kid in a candy store, but instead of sweets, you’re surrounded by a rainbow of ink colors and a variety of paper textures.

And then there’s the global community of Bullet Journal enthusiasts! From Tokyo to Toronto, people are using different tools and supplies to create their unique journals. It’s fascinating to see, but it can also add to the feeling of “Where do I even start?”

I’ve been on this journey myself, trying out different pens, testing various notebooks, and succumbing to the allure of decorative stickers. Through all the trial and error, I’ve found a set of must-have supplies that I always reach for when it’s time to plan, doodle, or jot down my thoughts in my Bullet Journal.

But here’s the most important piece of advice I can give: Your Bullet Journal is a reflection of you. So what works for me, or the thousands of other BuJo enthusiasts around the world, might not work for you. And that’s perfectly okay!

Must-Have Journaling Supplies

The world of Bullet Journal supplies is a bit like a giant playground, isn't it? So many colors, so many possibilities - it can feel like you're on an endless quest to find the perfect pen or the ultimate notebook.

Just as our journals are unique expressions of ourselves, so too are the tools we choose to use.

However, through my own Bullet Journaling adventures (and the occasional stationery shopping spree), I've discovered a few universal gems that I believe can enhance any Bullet Journal, regardless of your personal style. They're like the secret weapons in my Bullet Journaling arsenal โ€“ always reliable, always useful, and sure to bring a little extra sparkle to your pages.

So, buckle up, fellow stationery lovers, as we embark on a journey through my top picks for must-have Bullet Journal supplies.


The first thing you'll need is, of course, a journal! And I always recommend you get a heap training journal first. I had my first jurnal fo two months before I felt like I was ready for a r4al journal, and when my first journal literally fell apart.

But your journal quality actually matters. To avoid bleeding and ghosting, you need to get a quality journal. A notebook is a bass of your Bullet Journal, so you'll want to get a good one. Here are a few of my favorites.


Net up are pens! You'll need some pens for writing and generally creating your pages. There are plenty of options in this category, but not to overwhelm you, here are my top three choices.


Next up are the markers, which is what you need if you want to add color to your Bullet Journal pages.

The choice of markers will depend on what colors you like, but here are some of my recommendations.

Brush Pens

Brush pens are perfect to add those beautiful ettering element to your pages, but can also be used for adding color or even just drawing.


The final set of recommended stationery from me are the rulers, because you definitely need them for drawing all your pages and I gave a few geat ideas for you.
