The Hitchhikers Guide to the Plannerverse - Episode 114 - Habit Tracking


Habit Tracking 

We were looking into habit trackers a few weeks ago and I commented to Karine that if you put 'Habit Tracker' into the search box in the app store you get flooded with results. All for different purposes. 

We quickly agreed that using your paper planner would be so much easier and simpler than using a bunch of different apps for tracking different things.
