After half a year of bullet journaling, I’ve really started to hit my stride with what works for me and what doesn’t. I’m still experimenting and perfecting my entries each day, but that is something that will continue on forever. That’s the beauty of bullet journaling: you are not confined and it is up to you to adapt your journal to your needs.
Now, ever since I started my second instagram account, @plananotherday, which is dedicated to sharing my journal progress, I’ve gotten many questions about what supplies I use. In the photo above, you can see everything I used to create my August 2016 calendar page. Sometimes I use lots of elements to spruce up a page, but more often than not I stick with the less is more philosophy.
All you really need to bullet journal is something to write with and something to write on. Everything else is just extra to help make your journal yours.
