Bullet journal supplies : 10 products under 10$

January 30, 2018

Even if a notebook and a pen are enough to start a bullet journal, many users own a large collection of supplies : pens, pencils, brush pens, washi tape, stickers…

When we decide we want a beautiful and aesthetic bullet journal, the first thing we do is searching for inspiration on social medias. Instagram and Pinterest are great for that : tons of pictures showing gorgeous spreads and lots of supplies. But supplies have a cost! So here’s a list of products for your bullet journal, all items being under 10$!

Please note that the prices indicated in this article are the ones in effect at the time that this post is written.

    Hi, Thanks for the tips.

    I have a Stabilo Boss highlighter, and when I finish a stroke, it leaves extra ink (just when I lift it from the paper). It gives both a darker spot and some bleed through. How are the Pilot FriXion highlighters on this?

    Thanks in advance.

      Hi Maja,
      FriXion highlighters don’t do that (or just a little bit, nothing compared to Stabilo Boss). They don’t bleed through either.

      Just a little tip : when you use your Stabilo Boss highlighters, put a little piece of paper on your page. Finish your highlighter line on the piece of paper. This way, when you lift the highlighter, the extra ink will be on the piece of paper and not on your page 😉
