      This was the first time someone actually explained what the reason is behind using washi tape and stickers on a planner. I am a huge creative person, so the idea of a daily and weekly planner is great. I use a binder with tabs. One for my 90 days Kanban project ideas which I break down to put on my board. One for weekly projects to add to my daily planner to get done. I have two sections in my daily planner. One is personal, so groceries, paying bills, helping my son with homework, going for a walk. The other is for writing and the goals I’ve set for that day.
