Do you still remember collecting stickers for that 2020 planner or excitedly picking the best one that would suit your needs? Planners may have become a “useless” purchase from last year because honestly, what’s there to plan when we’re all stuck at home and can’t travel?
Well, you can still use your planner as a journal. Journaling is a great way to cope during this trying time; so it’s no wonder that many have been getting into it!
