I know this is typically a space for bookish thoughts and rambling but today I just HAVE to share with you guys all my feels for my latest purchase! (Warning my pictures aren’t the best but darn it I tried!)
A planner?! That’s it?
Not just a planner. An Erin Condren Life Planner…
As many of you know I am a planner/organizational junkie. Seriously. The way many of you worship coffee is how I worship planners, organizers, sticky notes, ALL OF THAT STUFF. So obviously when I saw someone on instagram share a pic of their brand new Erin Condren planner I had to check it out.
But all the shiny in the world couldn’t prepare me for the sticker shock I encountered next. You see, these planners are BEAUTIFUL and they honestly have a space for EVERYTHING. But with that awesome comes at a price STARTING at fifty bucks. That’s right. A freaking planner STARTING at 50 dollars. Obviously I got over that and ordered one anyway but I seriously spent an entire week going back and forth on if I could honestly justify dropping that much money on a planner. The short answer? YES! OH MY GOSH YES IT WAS TOTALLY WORTH THE 58 DOLLARS I SPENT ON MY FIRST (of TWO) ORDERS! But let me show you why it’s worth it. For me anyway.
I was able to personalize the cover! This may not seem like a big deal but I love the thought of it having that extra touch of Octavia on the front! Not just my name, but the quote under it is MINE. It’s what I want this year to be about and I love that little reminder everytime I pull this beauty out.
The month view is the PERFECT size! I can write in the boxes, use stickers (more on those soon!) whatever!
LOOK AT ALL THAT SPACE! LOOK AT HOW PRETTY IT IS! LOOK AT IT!!
The month view also has a small “notes” section. Perfect for just a quick glimpse of what’s coming up that month.
No hourly break up of your day. I HATE planners that have the day broken up on an hour by hour basis. What if I’m running late? What if I don’t know how long that oil change will take? What happens then?! I don’t like that kind of pressure and it looks stupid. This is way easier and better (for me) to work with.
There is a section for notes. Wait. Not just a section like what we’ve seen so far. I mean a full on 19 LINED pages for note taking and another full 19 pages (unlined) for whatever you see fit!
Accessories!!! Hear me out ok? Remember how I said I’m an organizational junkie? Well Erin Condren has EVERYTHING covered! A wellness journal (I’m trying to make better life decisions), a PERMANENT birthday book (which I love more than I thought) and a monthly budget book (seriously died and went to heaven).
Oh and STICKERS!! Pre-printed, custom, blank, small ones, big ones! STICKERS!!!!
AND IT CAME WITH PRETTY LABEL STICKERS!!! SO PRETTY!!!
So yes…I’m in love with this planner. Yes I plan on and have already started to use it everyday. No I do not have any regrets. If you’re in the market for an awesome, pretty planner then the Erin Condren’s Life Planner is a great way to go! And, like everyone who makes a purchase, if you buy anything using my referral link below you’ll get some money off (as will I) and trust me, that $10 bucks makes a world of difference! So go forth my loves! Check out the Erin Condren site! If you don’t immediately fall in love I obviously didn’t use enough exclamation points! 😉
