My advice is to start with one of the good everyday writing pens I’ve listed. Once you get the things, you will stratified it.  Starting a bullet journal shouldn’t be a big production. Let your system drive your supplies. Don't ever waste your MONEY. Don’t try to force your journal to be like someone else’s. Have you tried the pens on my list? Let me know which ones you loved, which ones let you down, and tell me about your favorites that didn’t make the list!
