It’s stationery week (woohoo!) and if you’re a self-confessed stationery fanatic (like me), then this is the perfect time to get upgrading your stationery stash. And to help you do that, here’s a list of some fab items that we’d love in our toolbox. Of course, all these goodies will help you with your bullet journaling too (not that you need an excuse to treat yourself!)
Let’s dive in.
If you have small handwriting (guilty) or you want to be able to draw intricate details and sharp lines in your BuJo (or favorite notebook) then this is the pen set for you. With a fine 0.3mm tip size, detail here you come!
These Staedtler Triplus fineliner pens come in their own carry case too so you can keeping your colors neatly organized. The case makes a great travel companion as well. There are 20 colors in total giving you plenty of choice and because these pens won’t bleed through paper, you can color happy.
Sticking with pens, this set of three 5-packs from Zebra is another great pick. [Yup, you get 15 pens in total]. Great for highlighting, you’ll be spoilt for choice with all the different colors included – many of which aren’t of the neon type.
Great for your BuJo, you can get busy color-coding your journal – and with so many pens to chose from, you can go overboard with your breakdowns, categorization, and detail.
Are you ready to go back to writing with something a little more traditional?
While we love the explosion of pen choice that’s happened in recent years, there’s something compelling about writing in your BuJo or journal with ‘proper’ ink.
This lovely retro pen from Pilot gives you choice. Either pop in an ink cartridge, or use the converter to ‘squeeze’ ink from a bottle for a more authentic experience.
Looking to improve your lettering skills? Want to practice caligraphy? Or simply want to include more doodles, drawings, and artwork into your bullet journal?
Either way, you’ll love these dual brush pen markers from Tombow. This pack of 10 pens includes 9 different colors plus a colorless blender pen which you can use to soften or blend different colors together.
These pens have two different tips. Use the brush tip like a paintbrush to create different types of strokes (fine, medium or bold strokes). Then flip the pen over and use the fine tip for more uniform, consistent lines.
With these in your hands, your artistic skills and creativity can go wild!
While I enjoy writing in pen, I LOVE writing in pencil – it has to be a super sharp pencil though which is why I love mechanical pencils. This one has a fab design too 🙂
No need to pull out the pencil sharpener, simply pop out more lead. Thanks to the fine nib, this pencil is perfect for drawing, sketching, and of course writing. It works well with rulers too for super sharp lines (ideal for mapping out those BuJo templates).
With a pencil in your toolbox, you can worry less about mistakes. Simply mark up your ideas first and easily make edits and adjustments.
Looking for a new notebook? Whether you’re ready to start a new BuJo or you want somewhere to journal, capture your ideas, or map out a new project, you can’t go wrong with a Moleskine.
This one is packed with dot-grid paper (which is perfect for all kinds of notetaking). It’s got a hard cover too so it won’t spoil when popped into your bag. This journal also opens flat so you can write on both sides with ease.
If you want a notebook that’s eco-friendly, this cork design from Lemone could be just the deal. Cork is natural and sustainable and the paper itself is acid free, recyclable, and contains no fluorescer (which can be better for your eyes).
This notebook also has a 180° opening to ensure it lies flat (for effortless writing on both sides). We also love the perforated pages which make archiving a doddle.

It’s fair to say that washi tape is pretty much a bullet journal essential, right?
We love its versatility. From borders, to underlining, to just adding a quick decoration, there’s so much you can do with this brilliant tool.
We like this pretty pink collection of 10 rolls. These cute repeating patterns will look fantastic in your BuJo spreads. What’s more, this tape can be removed and repositioned without leaving a sticky residue so you can change your mind about where to stick it – even use it again.
