The Ultimate Calendar Solution

I’ve had a glorious few days of getting my house in order (“house” in the broadest possible sense). I felt cluttered and needed to dedicate time to life maintenance — can you relate?

Part of that has been refining how I manage tasks and calendar events.

Enter Morgen…

I’ve mentioned Morgen several times in Notes by Martine as it’s such an interesting, potentially life-enhancing tool. I’ve been using it for over a month, so it felt like a good time to share my honest review with you (see below).

Spoiler alert: it’s brilliant and now a permanent part of my day-to-day life.

If you want to try Morgen, there’s a referral link and discount code in my review article — I’d be delighted if you used them.
