It really is great and customizable for everyone!
There are a ton of options on the market for bullet journal options, so we thought we’d share our top 3 to get you started.
The Original Bullet Journal
Bullet Journaling is actually the brainchild of New York Times best-selling author Ryder Carrol. His original book, The Bullet Journal Method takes you through everything you might need to know to get started. Because they’re the original, we had to highlight their Edition 2 Bullet Journal. It’s packed with updated features, printed on 120 GSM dot-grid paper, and comes in two colors – black and blush. It’s $25.95 but it is coming from the original creator of the method, so it includes features the others don’t.
Paperage Dotted Notebook
If you’re looking for a simple, inexpensive solution to try out bullet journaling, this Paperage Dotted Notebook is perfect! It’s 5.7 x 8 inches, so it’s easy to take everywhere and it comes in 14 different colors so you’re able to select one that’s a great fit for your personality. Its hardcover keeps your journal safe with water-resistant vegan leather and an elastic closure band. The best feature is definitely the fact that it lays flat, making it easier for you to write! It’s also only $9.95 so it’s a great way to get started without breaking the bank.
