For my daily journal I like to keep my art journal tools and supplies non-messy and easy to grab. I find that limiting myself to basic tools forces me to be creative. And bonus: is also good for the budget.

Magazines are one of my favorite sources for images and color and I always have a bunch on hand to cut and tear up and use in collages in my art journal.
I like to keep a pair of small, sharp scissors on hand to cut up collage papers.
I like using glue sticks to keep the mess to a minimum.
My favorite black pens for writing and doodling are Pitt Artist Pens (affiliate link).
I love white pens to add details on top of black.
When I want to add some color to a page, I usually reach for my Tombow Dual Brush Pens.
I love circles and using punches make them and other shapes easy to create.
