  2.

4. Post it, Invitations, Handwritten Notes, and Thank You Letters 

Someone told me they used this tool to send a Thank You note after a job interview and the interviewer really liked it. I personally like thank you notes and writing letters so this is something I’d use. Postable also has cool designs so even if you don’t send notes, it might inspire you to write or design.

5. Added: This is essential because it’s Women’s History Month and I love the author’s list.

34 Books by Women of Color to Read This Year, The Leavers by Lisa Ko is on the list (part of my reading list this year) which makes me happy.
