2017 Erin Condren Life Planner

I’ll admit it! I am still a paper planner kind of gal. Don’t get me wrong – I use google calendar from time to time, but if my life it going to maintain any semblance of order, I MUST write things down. With 2 kids and 2 part time jobs and sports schedules, volunteering, choir, girl scouts, doctor appointments and MORE, my planner is more filled these days than it has ever been. That’s why I am so excited to order a 2017 Erin Condren Life Planner!!

I have used all kinds of day planners – from the inexpensive ones at Walmart to the fancy Franklin Coveys of my work days. But by far my very favorite has been the Erin Condren Life Planner. I have been using Erin Condren Life Planners for 4 years now and I truly love them. Initially I was worried that this planner was over-hyped, and darn it seemed expensive. But I bit the bullet and ordered that first planner and now I won’t look back.

I am so excited because 2017 Erin Condren Life Planners are now available for order, and I just ordered mine! (Shipping is currently FREE on orders $100+)

Here is the planner that I chose for 2017:

I’m excited about the metallic!

Can I also just admit here that it has taken me 4 years to realize that you can re-use/swap out your covers?? It’s a good thing I am a pack rat and never throw anything away. I still have all of my past Erin Condren Life Planner covers and love that I can swap them out if I get bored.

My Erin Condren Life Planner is the first planner that I find myself fully using. In the past, I usually filled in the monthly view and rarely used the daily pages, so I was basically wasting half of the paper in my planners. Now, I use the monthly view so that I can see our weeks at a glance, but I also take the time (usually on Sunday nights) to fill in the daily pages as well. I list blog tasks, work out goals, kids activities, appointments, my menu plan and more – and I’m finding that this is really helping me to stay on task. There is something so satisfying about crossing items off of a list.

Here is an example of the daily/week view that I personally use (this is the vertical view):

Also available is the horizontal view seen below:

And I also considered ordering this hourly view, but in the end went with vertical:

New this year, you have the option of choosing colorful or neutral for your theme. I chose colorful because I need some cheer in my life. ha!

Here are the features of my Erin Condren Life Planner that I love:

  • The size – it easily fits in my larger purses and bags
  • The durability – I have yet to lose a cover, or a page even! (I spill coffee on my planner all of the time – and have never had a rip or tear)
  • The bright colors and simple, easy to follow layout – with room for notes, daily plans etc…
  • The fact that I can customize my own cover
  • The pouch and folders in the back of the planner, and the stickers!
  • They are made in the USA

I could go on and on. Truly the only “complaint” I have is that I wish they had a snapshot of the next 2 years – or that they would offer an 18 month or 2 year planner.

If you like accessories, there are several new Erin Condren Accessories to choose from as well!

I ordered this magnetic page marker in purple:

And these sticky notes…because I can never have enough sticky notes!
