One of my favourite things about bullet journaling is having an excuse to get all the pretty pens and cute supplies that I need to decorate my bujo spreads. Of course you don’t have to have every pen in the world to make a beautiful spread - as long as you have a good notebook and your favourite pen, you’re good to go!
The first thing you will need is a bullet journal Notebooks!Honestly, this can be any notebook - dotted, plain, lined, grid, it doesn’t matter. What I absolutely love about bullet journaling is that there are no rules.
The most popular type of notebook in the bujo community is of course the dotted journal. It’s also my favourite type because it makes journaling A LOT easier. You can use the dots to guide you and they’re not going to be as distracting as lines or grids.
If you’re more relaxed with the doodling but still want to use brush pens and other heavy ink pens, I would recommend a journal with at least 120gsm paper. Anything less than that can cause ghosting and bleeding.
