I always talk about the tools that I use for my bullet journal, all the random stationery goods I grab from Daiso, art supplies and so on. However, I’ve never really gone over how I organize and carry them around which are pretty important, too. Let’s face it, when you accumulate stationery and supplies this quickly, you’re going to need ways to keep things tidy.Read More
There’s no rule requiring you to make picture-perfect spreads with the best supplies money can buy. In fact, there are hardly any rules for the bullet journal! You can either follow the original system to a tee or modify and expand it to your heart’s content until it becomes your ideal productivity tool or even a creative outlet. At the end of the day, what really matters is that you have a bullet journal that caters to your specific needs and keeps you organized, productive and in check.
To start, all you really need are pens and a notebook. Everything else is extra and can be included if they fit your needs and your bullet journal’s intended purposes. As I’ve mentioned in the past, get good quality supplies that you enjoy using, but don’t feel obligated to buy what everyone’s recommending – I’m looking at you, Leuchtturm1917, and your $25 price tag.Read More
It’s no secret that I love MUJI. If I could, I would live in one of those MUJI-built homes in Japan. This aesthetically pleasing Japanese retail chain is gold mine of minimalistic and high quality furniture, home goods and, of course, stationery. They also sell basic apparel, aromatic oil infusers and surprisingly tasty snacks! But one thing I didn’t expect them to have, let alone impress me with, is skincare products.Read More
It’s safe to say that MUJI has a special place in my heart and a strong hold on my wallet. For that reason, I limit myself to two shopping trips there each year. I may have self-control when it comes to online shopping, but it’s a completely different story when I’m there in person. The word “budget” magically disappears from my vocabulary the moment I step into the store. But thanks to that, I have a nice little haul that I’m super excited to share!Read More
For me, there are two places where the word “restraint” loses all of its meaning: LUSH and MUJI.
For those who aren’t familiar with MUJI, it’s a Japanese retail company that sells simply-designed and practical items, ranging from clothing and household goods to beauty products and snacks. Its full Romanized name is Mujirushi Ryohin, which translates to “no-brand quality goods”. Don’t let the name fool you, though – MUJI prides itself on creating simple, good quality products at a low cost to them and, therefore, their customers.
There’s something for everyone at MUJI, but the busiest area in any given store would have to be the stationery section. Their writing utensils and notebooks were my go-to supplies throughout college, and I still use them to this day. Over the years, I found that there were products that my MUJI trips wouldn’t be complete without. And after going on a little shopping spree a few weeks ago, I thought I’d share some of my favorites!Read More
