2. To keep your writing neat & organised

Squared paper can help you keep your writing neat in several ways. Firstly, the grid-like pattern of the paper provides a visual structure that makes it easier to keep your writing aligned and spaced consistently.

Additionally, the lines on squared paper can serve as a useful guide for writing, and by writing between the lines, you can keep your writing straight and prevent it from becoming too cramped or too spread out, which makes it easier to read and reduces the risk of smudging or mistakes.
