The Life Planner

I love when other bloggers share some of their favorite things.  During my five year blogging stint, I've found several things I love through suggestions of other bloggers.  Not to knock promotions and giveaways that other bloggers do, but I love it even more when they share things they love, but they are not getting compensated for.

That being said, I wanted to share one of my most favorite things with you. 

Erin Condren Life Planners

(My 2013-2014 Life Planner)

I'm about to start on my third Life Planner.

I stumbled across them a few years ago through blogging and I've been in love with them ever since.

Yes, I realize that most people have moved onto electronic calendars, but call me old fashioned, I still love a good paper planner. 

(Month at a Glance)

Confession....I've been a planner junkie for years now.  Even when I didn't have much anything going on in my life, I was still buying planners and searching for the perfect one.

For years I stuck with ones from Target or Walmart, but there was always something I didn't like about any of the ones I bought.  So my quest for the perfect planner continued. 

 (Inspirational quotes throughout)

The thing is that these planners are not on the cheap side, most people balk when they ask how much I paid for them (they start at $50).  However, when I added up how much money I was spending on ones from Target (because I would always find one I thought would work better), it added up to about the same.  For the past three years, I've only bought one planner and stuck with it the entire year. 

Life Planners are something I consider a splurge for myself.  I used to feel guilty over buying them, but now that I see how much I use it, I think its totally worth it.

A couple of weeks ago, Erin Condren came out with this years new planners and I have to say that out of the three I've owned, this years "model" is perfect!  It's got space for all the things I need to write down and as always, they are beautiful to look at.

(Three Pages of Stickers-can also be customized for a price)

The best part of Life Planners....they are personalized!  They have plenty of options to choose from for covers and you can pick the colors of your liking.  You can even add photos to the cover! 

You can also choose between a 12 month or 18 month planner.  I went with a 12 month planner this past year, but went back to an 18 month this go round.

Oh, and these guys are sturdy.  Between the laminated tabs and cover and the aluminum coil...I promise you that they hold up all year long!

(My 2012-2013 planner)

I've been asked before if I carry it with me and the answer is no.  I usually keep mine at home, but because I'm usually a big purse kinda gal, I can usually fit it in whatever purse I'm carrying if I needed to (and I have on occasion).  If your looking for something smaller and lite enough to carry everyday, I'd look elsewhere. 

Seriously though, these things are awesome and after three years, I'm still in love with them! 


For the record....Erin Condren has no clue who I am.  These opinions are all my own and I bought my planner with my own money.  However, if Erin Condren would like to send me a free one, I'd take it in a heart beat! : )

Omg if I didn't just buy a new planner I'd be all over this! I also still use a paper planner, I need to see the month at a whole vs a 15 min reminder from my phone calendar. Yeah, I'll be buying one of these next July when mine runs out.
