If you are anything like me, you have a planner. I am a planner girl and always have been as far back as I can remember.
Planners are great for so many things other than just keeping up with your daily schedule. If you use your planner every single day, you’ll find that it is the perfect place to keep track of EVERYTHING! I plan out my days, and I will also go back throughout the week to highlight and document happenings, using my planner as a scrapbook of my life so to speak.
If you’re looking for different ways that you can use a planner to keep you organized and on task, I have listed below 75 ways that you can use your planner.
