My Take on The Erin Condren Life Planner

I had heard so many people say the Erin Condren Life Planner was amazing and I went to buy one back in March/April but they were sold out. So when the news came that they were having a pre-sale on July 13th I was one of the ones refreshing my browser to order my planner the second it became live.
I received it in the mail last week and have LOVED it so much. I think my planner and I are going to have an amazing year together.
So as most of you know I am a total organizing freak. I wrote a post about how I use Evernote and LOVE it. One thing Evernote does not have is a calendar where I can schedule things so I had to use my icalendar which was good but I am one of those people who have to have it written down and right in front of me at all times in order for me to actually stay on schedule. So this is where the Life Planner comes in.
I chose the “My Favorite Things” design where you write down a list of your favorite things and it becomes your background! They have so many different designs to choose from and you can add photos, colors, words, anything you can think of!
Each month starts out with a full monthly spread and a list of goals and to do’s.
Then it’s broken down into weeks and each day has a Morning (which I use for what’s on my blog), Day (which I use for my stuff on others blogs) and Night (which I use for personal scheduling). It works out perfect!
Each month has a different color scheme, which I LOVE.
There is a specific place for birthdays and anniversaries in the front.
A Full Year calendar which will come in handy.
A place for important addresses and they also throw in some labeled and empty stickers to add more color throughout your calendar.

And a little folder and pouch to keep all your little things.
And of course the very handy colored tabs!
The price is a little expensive- $50 but for the quality you get it is really worth it! You can also find coupons and giveaways all over blogland for them!
All in all I would definitely recommend this planner to anyone looking to stay organized in style! Super cute, very durable and well worth the wait :)

    Loved your post! You and I use our planners very similarly! (I use the day for scheduling designs & projects). I’ve already ordered my 2013 because I couldn’t wait!!

    I love Erin Condren!

    I won a Erin Condren Gift Card late last year and I used it to help pay for mine. I enter Erin Condren Giveaways daily trying to get more GC so I can get more goodies. I just won a $25 gc again last week. I was going to order the pens but they aren’t on sale right now.

    I am following your blog from
    Dreams Do Come True



    Would love if you would follow me back.

    I bought the favorite things design for our EC address book, and my words were all the things you would need an address for like “thank you notes, Christmas cards, thinking of yous, care packages, birthdays, anniversaries”… etc! I loved it so much I made the leap to my Life Planner the minute they went on sale! It’s an official OBSESSION!

    Ahhh! I just order my EC planner a couple weeks ago and I’m being so impatient about waiting for it! This review just made me all giddy haha

    Aaagh!!! Now I am torn. I am currently using a Much Ado About You planner and I LOVE it, but after seeing your reviews and pics, I am kind of leaning towards an Erin Condren planner. Decisions, Decisions. :)

    Your planner is super cute…I hope you enjoy it!
