How to Start a Bullet Journal for Under $10
It’s confession time. This is my first post on Sweet Sandbox. And I want to be honest with you. I am loving this bullet journaling thing. And I have no idea if I’m doing it right or not. But heck, I am tracking stuff and feeling accountable to myself.
It all happened one morning as I walked into Target. And there it was, the Target dollar spot. Who can resist that sweet temptation? The cutest, most Pinterest worthy items, all for under $5?
Well, I believe the easiest way to get rid of temptation is to give into it. I found myself with this little orange notebook in my hands. Little did I know it was a $3 bullet journal. Whoa? What?
Becoming a Bullet Journaler
Fast forward a few weeks, and I stumble upon countless posts on Pinterest about this new craze of bullet journaling. I research. I read. I follow.
And before I know it, I’m creating spread after spread. Beautiful bullet journal layouts. Tracking my exercise routine, my money saving goals, my ideas.. well, just about everything.
For under $5 I was a bullet journaler! I welcomed myself to the club.
I wish I could link to the little book I use, but I found similar products on Amazon that are both under $10 each. And they have fantastic reviews.
If you are the simple, minimalist soul, this one is for you!
“Five stars! Great paper quality!”
If you need a pop of color in your life, this is a must!
“Great for bullet journaling! Great for the price!”
