I’ve seen a ton of people say they can’t start journaling because they can’t afford a journal or supplies, to that I say – Dollar Tree! Yup that’s right, you’ve caught me, I’m a Dollar Tree addict. Not only can you find the best organizing bins there but you can also find some great bujo supplies! Check out all these awesome supplies they have for only one dollar, stickies and pens galore!
First let me start by saying your journal is just that, YOUR journal. Don’t compare yourself to others. The only thing that matters is that it sparks joy for you!
Now that I got that out of the way, here’s what I grabbed for my bujo on a budget…
So I spent the full $5 (plus tax) on these items, however you can really do it for $2 – all you need is a pen and a notebook! (If you have a hard limit of $5 you can skip out on one of the washis – I bought two rolls of washi tape because I couldn’t help myself!) I was surprised with the quality of the gel pens I bought – they write so smoothly I might have to go back and get a few more packs! I also bought a bottle of Mod Podge to add a a custom feel to my journal. Check out my finished product! I Mod-Podge’d a paper bag over the cover and I love it! You can also use wrapping paper, gift bags, fabric or anything else you have lying around the house to make your bujo yours!
So how do you bujo on a budget?
