Erin Condren LifePlanner and Coupon Code

Even though I’m not in school, I’m in the mood for school supplies. From pencils to planners, I squeal at the sight of back to school sales. In many ways, September is like January with the start of the school year offering one the opportunity to make goals and get a fresh start. With that in mind, let’s talk about planners!

How do you organize your life? I love my Erin Condren LifePlanner!

Last year, I splurged on an Erin Condren LifePlanner. Normally, I spend about $10 a planner, but after reading review after review and watching numerous unboxing videos, I decided to drop the dough and see what the fuss was about. As a paper planner lover, I’ve been incredibly happy with my purchase. From the interchangeable covers and personalization to tabbed sections and pocket folder, the LifePlanner is fun and easy to navigate.

 Monthly View

My thoughts on the Erin Condren LifePlanner.

I don’t go sticker crazy with my planner, but I have added stickers to all of my monthly calendars. I mainly use the monthly calendar as a sentence-a-day journal and write a brief line for every day. The Notes sidebar is where I make notes for upcoming events and other things I want to keep in mind for that month.

Weekly View

My thoughts on the Erin Condren LifePlanner.

I don’t usually fill in things ahead of time unless I have an event coming up. I use a lot of the elements of the Bullet Journal system and use boxes for tasks, circles for appointments, and dots for notes.  All of those things get added as the day goes on. When I was in school, I put everything in my calendar as soon as I knew about it, but since graduating, my schedule has become more flexible so my planning style is not as rigid as it once was.

Notes

My thoughts on the Erin Condren LifePlanner.

The Notes section is not something I use very often, but it’s convenient to have blank paper on hand. This is where I keep track of products I want to try – beauty, apps, subscription boxes – and events I want to attend in the future.

Extras

My thoughts on the Erin Condren LifePlanner.

The back of the planner has four sheets of stickers. Two sheets are labeled and two sheets are blank. I don’t really use the stickers that much, and I find a full page of birthday stickers a little excessive, but it’s nice to have already labeled stickers for doctor appointments and parties.

The Perpetual Calendar I use as a monthly log, and it’s where I jot down important events that happened that month.

The Keep It Together folder is my catch all for fliers and brochures while the pouch is where I stash extra stickers.

  1. I love this planner! It’s so pretty and cute! I’m also a big fan of stickers, though a whole sheet just for birthdays does sound like a lot. Though now that I’m surrounded by nieces and nephews it might be just enough!

  2. I still have to pick up pens and pencils even though I haven’t been in school for ages! Just something dun about getting new office supplies this time of year. 😉

    That planner looks amazing, I love it!

  3. I generally don’t keep track. It’s all in my head. It’s mostly ok but I make some dumb errors!
    Then I use my iPhone – with the Notes app and Calendar app.
    And it’s still imperfect.
    I’m a visual person so I think writing things down will be key.

  4. LOVE paper planners too. I have been doing a little scrapbooking with it as well by adding cell phone pictures printed out in mini-form (to fit). I have been using the Levenger Circa Smart Planner for a couple years. But want to try something new, like possibly the Erin Condren one for next year. Thanks for reintroducing it as I missed your post about it last year.
