New Obsession: Erin Condren Life Planner (REVIEW)

One day I was on youtube, I watched a "Plan With Me" video and my life changed haha! I remember clicking on the video simply because the paper looked gorgeous and it was decorated so colorfully. At-first I thought, I couldn't imagine how decorating a planner with rainbow stickers could benefit me..3 months later I paid $50+ for an Erin Condren Life Planner and now I'm addicted! I've only decorated two spreads or weeks so far and it's really therapeutic for me. So far. I think my decorating skills aren't too bad for a newbie! I didn't realize how many tasks I have to do on a daily basis, especially now that I've begun multiple classes.

When I started looking at planners I immediately knew that I wanted an Erin Condren Life Planner despite the high cost *insert tears*. I can honestly say that I think it was worth it. Unlike other planner addicts I've seen out there, I don't plan to fill up and cover up everything I paid for inside of the planner. I do love stickers though; especially creating DIY planner decor as it saves a lot of money and is way more affordable on my Etsy sticker addiction.

*Granted, I don't need to write down everything I need to do but it really eases my mind to know that I can look at my planner and know what I have to do/get motivated for the day. Not to mention, decorating my planner gives me extreme joy xx

Erin Condren Life Planner

There were a few issues with certain types of Erin Condren's planners shipping out a month or so later but I experienced no issues with shipping. I absolutely love the cover--the quote, colors and name customization. Because there was a lot of chaos surrounding the June launch; I ordered an 18-month planner therefore my next order will be around December 2016.

The pages of the planner are thick enough to not promote ink bleeding through. The planner comes with a monthly view backed by an entire page of lines for notes. Each month is designated certain colors, which of course with the help of stickers, can be decorated around or covered for a new theme. From what I can see about the last planner, the newly launched planners have a lot less wording, which is great for those of us who want to fully use pages without having to cover everything with a sticker.

At the start of each month, there's a quote decorated in the month's colors and I really love that. I also really love that there's so many blank pages spread throughout the planner for notes which I use for blog post ideas. My Erin Condren Life Planner also came with a plethora of goodies (some are pictured below).

Usually I feel sort of guilty for making purchases over $50 but this time around I don't. I was using an excel calendar for my blog, a checklist app on my phone, random sticky notes and a whiteboard to remember things for my brother and I. Now all of those have been condensed into my Erin Condren Life Planner, so I'm pretty guilt-free haha!

What do you usually use to remember tasks and events throughout the day?
