Erin Condren Life Planner Review

I remember spending hours shopping with my best friend for the perfect high school senior year planner. Yes, I was a nerd. I loved my planner. We would write so much there was barely any white space left. I basically used it as a journal as well. I still have them to this day and can’t part with them.

I kept planners through college but when I started my first full time job out of college, I stopped using them. Fast forward 10 years…I need it back!

I use Google Calendar for all work related stuff, and love syncing my calendar with my husband’s for travel days, doctor appointments, etc. And even though I use Google Calendar on my phone, there is something about writing stuff down and crossing it off that has instant gratification.

I did my research and most of the blogger groups I belong to raved about Erin Condren Life Planners. I purchased the horizontal version and counted down the days until it shipped. I’m a month into using it and I’m in love. Here’s what I’m digging:

  • Lots of space to write and add stickers
  • There’s a 30 day calendar for each month, followed by weekly layouts
  • You can customize a cover for free, which I overloaded with pictures of my son 🙂
  • There’s a Notes section at the end of each week – I like to use this space for weekly to-do’s
  • There’s a pocket in the back for loose notes, receipts, etc. 
  • A zipper pouch
  • A moveable ruler/bookmarker
  • Facebook groups based on Erin Condren planners – I get so many fun ideas for planning from these groups
  • Etsy sticker shops galore! 
  • My only dislike is the thickness/size. It does add a bit of weight to my laptop bag, but I’m willing carry it so my planner is with me.

  1. I love anything with stickers :). This sounds like a good tool for 2016. I'm a fan of the paper planner too even though I use Google Calendar for my day-to-day stuff.

  2. I love the idea of a paper planner. I too use Google Calendar but love the idea of having something to write in that you could be more creative with. It would make a great way to keep a brief diary of your days if you didn't want to use it as a calendar. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I used to have a Franklin Covey planner with me all the time but haven't used a written one in years delegating it to Google Calendar on my iPhone but I somewhat miss the confidence of knowing everything was written down in ink in front of you people get with a print calendar. This Erin Condron planner looks like a nice option to have a print option to work with rather than just going digital.

  4. Erin Condren planners are pricey, but worth it. I love mine and will probably always keep a written, hard copy planner instead of a virtual one, so to speak. PLANNERS FOREVER!
