10 Awesome 2018 Planners To Help Plan Your Year
Planner season is officially upon us, guys. It’s that time of the year where cafes are packed with people trying to collect stickers for that elusive planner where they can jot down all their imaginary plans for the year (I kid!) I even remember a time when my friends would wait by the counter to ask for strangers’ stickers in case they didn’t want them.
So yeah, if you still haven’t decided on which planner to purchase or collect stickers for this year, we hope this guide helps you make that decision!
