The first step of any project is to gather the necessary supplies. The same is true when you start a journal or a Bullet Journal. You’ve got to have a dedicated notebook and pen ready, or your journaling dreams are toast. Now as I’ve said before, there’s no wrong way to choose your notebook and pen. The only thing that matters is your mindset about keeping a journal.  But I’m of the firm opinion that starting off with high quality ( and pretty!) supplies keeps you more motivated over the long term.

So, in an attempt to make your life easier, I’ve done the work for you! I’ve been journaling every single day for over 2 years and I’ve field tested dozens of different notebooks and pens. ( To see my top picks for notebooks, click here! ) in the selection below I’ve picked the not only the highest quality but the most affordable pens on the market now. So scroll down and get started on building your ideal journal kit with any one of these 8 sure to please pens!

Getting organized: why is it so hard? The house, the kids, the deadlines. Life gets complicated fast and it’s easy to be overwhelmed by all the tiny details that go into every day. While there are planners and apps that can help you organize your time, there are very few options for organizing everything else. This is where starting a journaling practice can be a lifesaver.

I can’t believe we’re already a month into 2018. February is on its way and that means I have new printables for all my peeps! Take a look at my February Bullet Journal Set-up and download it for your own!

You can print these pages out to use in your A5 size journal, or download them to use in your digital journal! So grab your watercolor planning pack below!
