Someone that I follow on Twitter tweeted about her Erin Condren Life Planner. I’m a nut for organization systems … Daytimer, Franklin Covey Planner … so I had to go check it out. I’ve gone away from what I would term traditional organization systems in recent years in favour of my iPhone, but something about the Erin Condren Life Planner caught my eye.
I love that I could design my own cover. She has A LOT of covers to choose from. Some of the choices give you the option to upload pix of your family to include on the cover as well.
The entire Life Planner is colourful, which I love! One thing that really drew me to this design was the amount of space you’re given on the Month-at-a-Glance page. I never felt like I had enough room to write in the other planners. And, at the top of each month, there’s a positive quote … July’s is “Every morning is a new beginning, a new chance to rewrite the story of your life.” ~ Tina Su
Again, with colour! The month tabs are big, colourful AND laminated! Huge pluses for me.
She includes fun, colourful stickers so you can mark important dates in your calendar — birthdays, vacations, doctor appointments. Also, in the Life Planner is this bound-in zip lock pocket, and she includes a couple of customized stickers and some generic gift stickers for you to try. A very thoughtful touch, and a good marketing approach to possibly entice you to try some of her other products.
Lastly, there is a “keep it together” pocket folder. I put a few things in so you can quickly get the general idea. It is made out of cardstock, however, I am curious as to how it’s going to wear over the next year.
Being a wife, mom, and stepmom in a very active family, I’m curious as to how it’s going to hold up over the next year. But right now, I’m so excited to have it and to start using it! I’m just a nerd that way.
If you can believe it, there are women who have made YouTube videos about their Life Planners. I checked out a couple before I decided to purchase mine. Just head out to YouTube and search for “Erin Condren Life Planner”.
By the way, I don’t know Erin Condren, I do follow her on Twitter, but that’s about the extent of it. If you want to check out her site, you can do so at ErinCondren.com. Also, check RetailMeNot for available coupon codes. I did and saved $5 when I ordered. AND when my Life Planner arrived, I received a $10 off offer code for my next order. Good stuff!
