I was introduced to Bullet Journaling by Anne Bogel of Modern Mrs Darcy. She did a talk on Bullet Journaling for Readers. I had been trying to find something to put all of my notes in place, and this was it!!

Let me tell you! I was so excited. After watching the podcast, I told my husband all about the bullet journal. He was excited too. He had been looking for a way to organize his work projects but hadn’t found the right system. We watched the video by Ryder Carroll explaining how he came up with the system.
So then, it was time to decide what we wanted to use for our bullet journals. Of course, I wanted something feminine while my husband wanted something a little more masculine.
Here are some options we found:
This seems to be the favorite bullet journal of many bloggers. The pages are a nice thickness, and yet it is still lightweight.
At first, I liked the Pilot FriXion Clicker Erasable Pens…until my husband left his journal in the hot car. Everything disappeared!! The gel is erasable because it reacts with heat or friction. I contacted Pilot, and they said to put the journal in the freezer, and the ink should become visible again. This worked, but we decided it might not be a good idea to use these for important documents. However, I think the boys might like writing coded messages now.
Washi tape is not something my husband wants to use, but I think it is pretty. I am not very artistic, so this helps to spice up the page.
I can’t draw a straight line, so a stencil set is nice to make lines as well as all the cute little pictures.
A great way to mark your place for items you refer to often…monthly calendar, daily list, etc.
