Getting Organized With The Erin Condren LifePlanner

I think I'm a pretty organized in general but I could always use a little help. As a freelance photographer/consultant/writer, I always have projects, appointments and deadlines to track and stay on top off. I've been using a digital organizing app which I supplement with a notebook because there are certain things that I just need to write down. It may sound archaic in this day and age but it just works better for me to have a written to-do list because it reinforces the tasks I have to get done and writing things down also works as a memory device for me.

Enter the Erin Condren LifePlanner™...  I've seen these around and now that I have my very own, I get why this is such a must have organizational tool for so many people. And what's really cool is that there are so many different options available to suit any number of needs.

The signature coiled Erin Condren LifePlanner™ which is one of the most popular offers a number of customizable options for a truly personalized planner tailored to your style.  The dimensions of this LifePlanner™ is 7 x 9 inches (18 x 23cm) The cover is a substantial laminated cover stock that’s sturdy and easy to maintain. I'm a big fan of personalized products so I had fun with the selections to create the planner of my dreams.

COVER
You get to choose from a selection of cover styles which range from classic to graphic. There  are even options using your own photos. Any cover can be personalized with your name, initials or monogram at no additional charge. This colorful and chic marble design really spoke to me and I always prefer using my initials over my full name.

COIL
This planner is coil bounded. The standard finish is platinum but you can also change it to gold, rose gold, or black for an additional charge. I think rose gold was the perfect complement to my cover choice.

CALENDAR
You choose between three options for your calendar:  18 month (July 2017-December 2018),  12 month (July 2017-June 2018 or January 2018-December 2018). I went with the second 12 month option.

PAGE LAYOUT
There are also three different options for the page layout – vertical, horizontal, and hourly. I debated between the vertical and horizontal but ultimately chose the latter because the layout works better since I like to work in list form.

COLOR THEME
For the calendar pages and dividers, there is a choice between a colorful or neutral theme. Both have their appeal but neutral is more my style at this point in my life.

Each month starts off with a reinforced tab that has an inspirational quote, with a facing blank page that can be used for notes.

The Keep It Together folder is not only pretty but functional as well. It's great for organizing any odds and ends you may have.

The sticker pages offer up a fun and colorful way to call out special occasions as well reminders for tasks and appointments.  I love how these speak to my inner child since I was an avid sticker collector when I was young.

There are lined pages there are dot grid pages and then there are coloring book pages. Coloring can be an effective way to counter stress. Just sayin...

The Erin Condren Life Planner has no shortage of calendars. There is a year-at-a-glance (to start the planner), month-at-a-glance (at the beginning of each new month), week-at-a-glance (for your day to day planning, a year-at-a-glance of the coming year (following the end of the current one). And if that wasn't enough, there is also a perpetual calendar that can be used to remember birthdays, anniversaries and other special dates that never change.

And if that wasn't enough, there are all the ACCESSORIES! Each Lifeplanner comes with a Plan For It Pouch which can be used to stash loose items. It also come with some fun goodies like compliment cards, gift labels, discount cards for friends and family and a coilclip connector that can be used to attach and save photos, cards or whatever.

For more sticker fun there is the Classic Edition Designer Sticker Book. The cover is super pretty and so is the collection of designer stickers inside. I can see myself having so much fun with these. The cute sticky notes can be snapped in for handy access. The dual-tip markers which are offered in a pack of pastels as well as a pack of classic colors provide flexibility of both fine and marker tips so they can be used for writing, drawing or whatever.

And if you ever decide you'd like to change up the look of your planner, it's as easy as snapping on one of their interchangeable covers. How cool is that!

I'm just so excited about my Erin Condren LifePlanner™ and I really look forward to using it! Being able to get it customized to my needs makes it extra special and will go along way to keeping me organized. The quality of the planner is impressive. The features are not only practical but also aesthetically pleasing which I think is really nice for something that I will be using on a daily basis. I can see this going a long way to keeping me organized and inspired. The Erin Condren LifePlanner™ ranges from $55 to $60 depending on the style you choose.

I got to know the Erin Condren brand better at at party they threw in NYC last month. The venue was Dylan's Candy Bar, the famed candy emporium and cafe on the Upper East Side. It is quite a hotspot but not somewhere I frequent since I don't eat candy. I have stopped by there before to pick up gifts though. The vibrant atmosphere of their cafe made it the perfect backdrop for the fabulous fĂȘte.

I wasn't that familiar with the range of Erin Condren products apart from their LifePlanners before this. I learned that the brand has actually been around since 2005 growing from organization essentials and stationery to include a selection lifestyle and entertaining products.

The brand features a selection of home decor including pillows, throws, art prints, acrylic trays, acrylic boxes, placemats, travel mugs and wine totes and apparel/accessories including pajamas, flip flops, tote bags, clutches, phone cases, enamel flair pins and even nail wraps. There are a range of designs to suit different styles and products can be personalized with a name, initials or monogram at no extra charge. I was really impressed with the look and quality of the decor items and the personalization factor really sets them apart from a gift giving perspective.

  1. I am digital. As much as I love writing things down (still make my video drafts in a little notebook), it just doesn't work for me. I need to have everything with me at all times and I keep forgetting to take a planner. The only thing constantly with me is my phone.

  7. I've never heard of this brand before, Rowena! As a stationary aficionado, this is right my alley:D I love how it's so easy to customize this, and yay for all the accessories. To this day, I can never give up notebooks coz I tend to remember stuff more when I physically write them down.
    Have a great Monday:)

  9. I'm like you Rowena! I have to write things down to keep things in order and get things done. I've seen her products before and I always admire her use of color and cheeriness :D She showcased her products at a perfect place! I have to see Dylan's Candy Bar one day. I learned about it years ago and smitten. HaHaHa

  23. Your planner looks ideal, I'm still trying to find a planner with ideal "set" but it's hard to find something that will be useful for me and my "graphic" notes.
