This is the one of the first blogs that I came across that had it really self explanatory and made sense to get started. I copied down the list that the visual journalist suggested and got started .
Just click the link above and follow the directions there. Make your list and go shopping ! Check out the dollar store in your area ! They have super fun stuff for the visual journal on the cheap side ! Then go to Walmart, the bookstore and any where else that carries office supplies and fun journaling supplies !
