erin condren 2014 life planner

in Favorites

i knew i need to upgrade my current planner. i have been using my coach date book for about 15 years…Yes 15 years. it was hard to think about not using it…but with the kids getting into more activities i needed a planner that was…well…bigger…i needed more space for writing.

then began my search for said new perfect planner…i went to my bf who is addicted to planners and she mentioned erin condren

so then i began searching information on-line…and there is tons of information on these erin condren planners.

my favorite review was at whimsy at heart and now a new favorite blog that I am following…yeah.

{if you set up an account at erin condren through this link you can get $10 off your purchase…and I get $10 off coupon as well.}

ok lets begin…

the fun pink & teal boxed arrived….i mean how cute is this box…just from the start it is fun.


the box is opened



she has so many neat patterns for the front cover to choose from. it was a tough decision. decisions decisions.

i went with the classic life planner – favorite things….you get to type out a list of your favorite things and it repeats itself over the front and back cover. then your name or whatever you like is printed down the side


they also sent me some free gift labels…how cool is that.


a side view for you. this planner will easily fit in my purse. disclaimer i always carry a big purse….well unless i am going out to some fancy dinner then i downsize.


front page :-)


ok and what you’ve been waiting for. this gives you an idea of what the month at glance page looks like. i love this since the squares are nice in big. plenty of space for me to write my stuff down. i also love the notes section on the side. i use this a lot to give myself reminders.


and this is what the weekly page looks like…this is what i was really excited for. plenty of space and organization to write down kids activities, appointments, events throughout the day & week.  the one thing i will have to get used to is the week is set for monday-sunday….which when i thought about it – it does really make sense since that sunday is part of that weekend…ya know?

also notice the little tab at the top – that is a removable bookmark that is included to mark the current week.


she also includes these stickers you can use to mark events…stickers included were birthday, day off, appointments, vacation and two pages of blank sticker.


then there is this double-sided pocket folder to put all that paper we need to keep with us and zipper pocket…which is hard to see since it is clear but it is on the right.


there are lots of extras and accessories to pick from. i use lots of paper so i choose the matching notebooks. I didn’t opt for the pen holder  or elastic bands based upon Jen’s review at whimsy at heart


overall i am loving it.

i was a tad too excited to use my colored pens and begin filling in the dates.

oh and a tip about the pens: make sure you test it out first so the ink doesn’t go through your pages. I have been using my scrapbooking colored pens Zig brand and Tombow brand  and they work wonderful….you can also find them at any scrapbooking craft type store.

and well you know i love to shop.

Hi Angela!

I love your Erin Condren review! I still can’t believe how my life planner has helped me to get more organized. Using my iPhone only was failing me pretty badly. I didn’t think about Sunday being at the end of the week in this planner, but I do like it. And, I’m smiling ear to ear that you like my blog! I love seeing your comments there! :)

Happy Thanksgiving!
