Hi guys! It's been a while since I talked about my bullet journal. Like three or four months—but I assure you I'm still very obsessed with keeping my life and business recorded in the bujo!
In the few months since I started using my bullet journal, a Leuchtthurm 1917, I've come up with a small gathering of accessories that I'd like to share with you. Scroll down to the bottom of the post for the quick walk-through video.
The Pen: Pilot G2 05 in black or blue
Somewhere in my life, I became very attached to the Pilot G2 pens. For bullet journaling, I typically use black, but I've been trying to use up the blue ones I found in my stash. The color doesn't matter so much, but the 05 tip size ("extra fine point") is what I really like. The pen usually stays stuffed in the pages somewhere, or with the holder stuck in the elastic of my bullet journal.
Forgot to mention the post-it notes in the back of my bullet journal. I love having these around because sometimes I'll take messy notes on them, while other times I will create a movable task list that needs to be done in the future, and will move it forward in my bullet journal as many times as needed (without having to re-write a list). In the Getting Things Done (GTD) world, they're called "someday" tasks.
I keep a few short stacks of post-its in the back of my bullet journal so I can grab one quickly.
Favorite bullet journal washi tape and masking sticker supplies
As much as I like to keep a minimal journal, having washi and pretty masking tape stickers on hand help me stay organized. I will use a strip of washi tape as a way to find an important spread quickly by taping the edge, or to highlight an area of my bullet journal that I want to stand out while flipping through the journal. Jessica from Pretty Prints and Paper sent me this particular collection of washi tape. I love how she used an old gift card to make the washi travel-friendly.
The masking sticker set is something I ordered on a whim from Amazon, but it turns out that this masking set is so multi-functional and nice and small for travel. I use the masking tape to cover up mistakes, to highlight, and to create a quick tab in my journal.
Correction tape is my sanity. I'd like to be the type of person to make a mistake and scribble it out, but I function way better if things aren't crossed out and if things look neat. I bought these Bic correction tapes as a way to keep my bullet journal looking clean. I've even purchased several of these to keep one in each desk (upstairs and downstairs desk).
So there you have it: my minimal bullet journal supplies! What do you always carry with you for your planner?
