Products With Heart- The Erin Condren Life Planner

Hello!  I’m so excited to share my next installment in my product review series (I changed the name up a bit to make it feel more personal for this blog!).  As a woman who loves a good organization and planning system, I’ve been on the hunt for a solid planner for awhile.  While I thought I’d found a good system for awhile (read about it here) I became dissatisfied over time, and found myself on the hunt once more for a good planner. Enter Erin Conrad*.
When I first stumbled upon Erin Conrad’s website, I was immediately impressed.  It’s basically the mecca for all those who love anything to do with organizing and planning…i.e. me.  From beautiful life planners, to colorful office supplies, to cards and invitations, this company offers a variety of products to suit a plethora of office or crafting needs.  I stuck with buying a life planner this time, but I will definitely be back to peruse through more products soon.

On to the planner…when I first opened it, I literally felt like someone had peeked into my head and then designed a planner that included anything I have ever wanted in one.  Organized with colorful tabs, each month of the planner begins with a calendar spread, followed by weekly agenda pages (available in either vertical or horizontal format, I went with horizontal.)  Each day is organized into two chunks.  I’ve been using the longer lined box for my daily to-do lists and homework assignments, and the small box for my exercise schedules and meal planning.

While this planner without a doubt includes everything I want to stay organized and plan out my time  in advance, it also offers lots of sweet extras I didn’t expect.  For instance, each weekly spread page includes a Notes and a Thankful Thought box, which are really awesome places to remind myself of things to remember or be grateful for.  There is also a Notes section in the back of the planner, which I’ve been using to keep track of books I want to read, gifts I want to purchase for people, etc.  Finally, the life planner comes with a starter pack of stickers.  While I’ve never been a fan of using stickers per say, I’ll definitely be giving these a try.
As if its interior features weren’t enough, the planner itself is sturdy and gorgeous.  There a tons of cover designs to choose from online, and I hear tell that you can order covers separately so you can switch up your look throughout the year.  You can check them out for yourself here.  Additionally, you can personalize your planner like I did, or buy a pre-made and ready to go planner for a cheaper price and faster delivery.  
How do you keep yourself organized?  Do you have a system that works well for you?  I’d love to hear about it! Until next time!
