What to put in a Bullet Journal Toolbox

Hi Everyone! So today I'm going to be showing you my bullet journal toolbox. If you're not sure what bullet journaling is, you can learn more here.
The box itself is from Target i'm pretty sure. However, I'm sure you can find one at Bed, Bath & Beyond or the Container Store or someplace like that. Everything that I'm showing you will be linked in the description box below. So let's get started. You don't have to use a box like I did. Get creative! Try a wicker basket, up-cycle an old gift box, use a large pencil case, or a small tote.
The first thing in my toolbox is of course my bullet journal. Now I have a Moleskine Squared Journal. It has gridded lines on the inside which I just think is really nice for being able to line things up and have straight edges when you draw. The next item that I have is are these Milan 12 pack of colored pencils. What I think is really cool about these is that it flips open like this. So that you can work and you just have all your colored pencils lined up nicely. The colors are also really vibrant and they draw really smoothly.
A next must for my bullet journal toolbox are these Staedler fine tip pens and these also have a little stand and they write really nicely. What's nice about them is they don't bleed through a lot. So, I used to use these Paper Mate Flair markers and they bled through a ton and it really looked gross. So I switched over to these and they have great colors and they also have a thin side on the case. These are a must for the bullet journal toolbox. The next pens I have are these Yummy Yummy Scented Glitter Gel Pens. They are so amazing because the colors are really bright and fun and they write so smoothly. It feels really good. They are also glittery which I like the effect of that. However, they don't smell that much but that's okay.
Now these are all of my single pens or pencils. I just have this normal pencil. I like to use pencil sometimes to write out if I'm trying out a new font or something, I'll just write it first. Then I have this eraser that I erase it with after use the pen. This is the pen I use for everything. It's a Uni-Ball Powertank pen. Mine is 0.7 and I love it because it writes really smoothly. It also, you don't have to scribble on the side of your page or anything, it just starts writing. This pen is awesome because it doesn't bleed through. It's Pentel and it has pink ink which I think is a nice change. I have both of these because they write on washi tape. This one is the Bic Mark It pen and I have this one because the point is thicker. And I use this Sharpie Fine Point pen if I want the point to be thinner. So these are all my pens.
Next I have this Bando stickers. These stickers are awesome because they have a sticker for like every occasion. They have some letters, party stickers, these hands which I think are adorable and I haven't used them yet, but I can't wait to. These are my favorite stickers which is why they are in the toolbox. Then I also have these Post It Notes. I really like these colors because sometimes I don't have enough color on the page so I just add a Post It Note. Sometimes I don't want to write in my bullet journal so I just write on this and stick it in there.
Lastly, I have my washi tapes. So I think this box came from an old sunglasses container/box. So these are all my washi tapes. These are some patterned ones. I have a lot of solid ones, but I just try to have a really nice bright selection. So this is everything in my bullet journal toolbox. Like I said earlier, everything will be linked below.
