If you’ve ever been on the hunt for a house, then you know the struggle. My husband and I are looking to move soon, and it’s been so crazy. Add on being a blogger, college student, and mom, I am constantly busy. Since I’ve had very little time for anything else, any tools that help make my bullet journal life easier are essential.
Luckily, there are plenty of time-saving tools out there that’ll not only save you time but are also super cheap! Like, under $10, cheap! Whaaat?
Plus, you can find almost all of these on Amazon, so if you’re a Prime member, you can even get FREE 2-day shipping! (Not a Prime member? Click here for a 30-day free trial!)

1. Stencil Kit
Stencils are a great way to not only save time but also ensure that all of your shapes match perfectly!
This stencil set comes with a variety of shapes and shape sizes, making it great for small details or bigger spaces. There are plenty of circles and squares, but banners and symbols as well, which is why this stencil set is probably the best stencil set for bullet journals.
One of the most time-consuming aspects of filling out my bullet journal is setting up all of the trackers. For a long time, I wouldn’t even include a water intake tracker in my bullet journal because it just took too long to set up and fill out.
Here recently, though, I’ve found that getting stickers to put in my journal and track my water intake is so much easier and much simpler!
Personally, I think these are really cute and different, but I’m sure there are plenty of other types of water intake trackers online!
If you want to make your journal look really cute and pretty, but don’t have time to doodle, printables are a great option.
Printables are just files that you can buy online and reuse over and over again. These printable stickers are actually available in my Etsy shop!
The only catch is that you have to buy the paper and print them off yourself, but honestly, I think it’s worth it. You can use regular printer paper or sticker paper. Or, if you’d rather pay extra, Etsy also has a lot of days on the week stickers already printed out that are sent to you via mail.
These printable stickers are actually available in my Etsy shop! I’m a big fan of getting printables online (or making your own!) and just buying some paper to print them off. You can use regular printer paper, or sticker paper (although the cost of this kind of paper does go a smidge over the $10 limit, you get 30 sheets so this would set you up for a while!)
4. Washi Tape
Washi tape is a simple way to cover up empty space and personalize your journal without spending a lot of time on it.
Before I got into using my bullet journal, I didn’t understand how people could spend so much on tiny rolls of tape. Now that I’m more invested in my journal, though, I totally get it.
These tapes aren’t that expensive, but if you compare them to the regular tape they do cost more. But there are tons of different styles and designs, so there’s something for everyone!
I actually got my first set of tape not too long ago and I love them! (Next, I think I want to get these cute copper washi tapes, which are still until $10!)
These divider tabs are a bit of a double whammy, because not only do you get easy access to each month in your journal, you also get a mini calendar, so you don’t have to worry about creating one in your journal!
Guys, I’ve admired these from far far away for such a long time, because I thought they were super expensive. BUT, I finally found a pack on Amazon for under $10! Swoon.
These highlighters are super popular on Instagram and Pinterest, as they are pretty high-quality and this pastel pack provides your bullet journal with a pop of color easily. It’s a win-win pretty much!
Colored pens are a great way to color code your activities in your bullet journal and organize your journal without putting a lot of effort into it. Again, it’s an easy way to add color to your journal without doing much.
8. Pencil Case
How cute are these little pencil pouches? You won’t believe the price of them (for all three!)
As usual, though, there’s a catch. While I haven’t purchased this specific item, after reading the reviews it appears that they are fairly small. They can still fit pencils and pens, but if you’ve got a lot of bullet journal supplies that you want to squeeze into one pouch, this may not be for you.
If you’re worried about the space and want something a little bit bigger, here’s another option that’s still cute and cheap!
As far as the essential bullet journal supplies, there are tons of recommendations out there (you can find my favorites in this post) but if you’d like an in-depth look at one of the most admired notebooks out there for bullet journaling, you can read my review here.
