Organized My Entire Life

When my new 2017 Erin Condren Life Planner arrived on the porch a few weeks ago, I couldn’t help but rip open the pretty pink box and tear through the tissue paper!  I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it!

Having my very own Life Planner had kinda been a dream of mine for a while (that sounds sad, doesn’t it? ?).  They were more expensive than a planner from Michaels or Target, and I want sure if they were worth the extra money. Well, finally, last year I took the plunge, and became part of the Erin Condren Planner Family & A Self-Proclaimed Planner Addict!

I was tired of feeling so out of place and disorganized, and I knew I needed a new system.  I needed to write down my schedule, and my to do lists, and have them conveniently in one place.  And, I’ve found that the Life Plannners are perfect for me!  They are a beautiful place to plan my life….quite honestly they just spoke to me. ? I was able to decorate with stickers and colorful markers, and snap in cards & invitations or keepsakes!  My Life Planner has become like a scrapbook to me! It was right up my ally!

I eventually figured out how to best use my Life Planner for me, and I’ve loved it ever since.  At one point in time I thought I’d never fill in all the columns, but at the end of the week…life happens… & all the squares become memories.  The week’s spaces soon become decorated with movie stubs, fortunes from fortune cookies, and/or quotes or details about our week. My Life Planner has not only been my organizational life saver, but also my diary, of sorts.  It’s awesome!

Let me take you on a picture tour of the new 2017 Life Planner.  Erin’s really outdone herself with this one.  I’m in love!!

I chose the Watercolor Gold Foil Mid-Century Circle Cover, which putting it lightly (and dramatically ?) took my breath away! The gorgeous cover combined with Rose Gold Coil (that I debated spending extra money for ?),  are the perfect combination. I absolutely love it!  Worth every penny!

{The covers snap on and off so you can change the look of your Life Planner throughout the year, or you can choose a Luxe Cover that is permanent.  Both choices are beautiful.  You can see all the available options on her website when you begin to build your very own Life Planner!}

I love this cover so much, that I’m going to have a hard time changing it.  Yes…the cover snaps off and is interchangeable.  So, you can dress up your planner for the holidays, design a cover using your own photo, or customize a cover using your favorite inspirational quote.  Your life planner becomes your very own creation.  And, this year….drum roll please….she’s added a dry erase board to the inside of the cover!  So nifty!

One of the small, but unforgettable details in the Life Planner is the vellum art paper, which adds a touch of whimsy to the title page.  It’s just an extra touch of gorgeousness that will make all your friends and family drool over your planner when you start showing it off!  And this years mid-century circle watercolor pattern, has to be my favorite thus far!  I’m not sure how she’s going to top it.

The quotes and additional artwork throughout the Life Planner is what sets it apart from other Planners.  There is literally inspiration dripping off the paper!

I ordered the Watercolor Sticky Notes with my new Life Planner, because I’m a sucker for sticky notes!  What can I say?  I Love Sticky Notes!  I may have a problem, actually. ? But, any who’s-it’s, these totally adorable mini Sticky Notes snap right onto the coil inside the Life Planner for easy access while jotting down notes.  I love them!  Enough said. ?

This is Years Goal/Dream Board offered plenty of space for me to scribble down a few attainable goals for the New Year! ? Hey, don’t judge me!  My aunt always told me,

If you’re going to dream…Dream Big!  It doesn’t cost a bit more!”

To mark the current week in my Life Planner, I use the “What To Eat” Dashboard.  Not only does it make a great book mark, but it’s also the place I write down meal ideas and our grocery list.  When it’s time to head to the store, I detach the dashboard from my planner and put it in my purse.  I have a reusable grocery list and meal planner right there in my planner!  It’s so convenient!

I couldn’t wait to start planning in my new planner, so I was happy to see that she included the end of the last week in December.  The coordinating sticker books for this years planner are simply stunning.

This quote sticker came in a mini sticker book I found hidden in my clear pouch (that’s included with your Life Planner!) when the planner arrived! I loved the stickers so much, but they were sold out when I ordered my planner.  I can see why!  They’re beautiful, and I love this quote for New Years Day,

“Make Room for Good Things to Happen!”

I include the Cleaning Zone I’m in for the week at the top of the page, as well as daily cleaning challenges in the second row of squares.  {You can read about my cleaning routine here!}

I also use washi tape and sticky notes to add pops of color to the page.  I use the sticky notes for planning out blog posts, and use the washi tape to designate an area along the bottom of the page to document our menu for the week.

The top row of squares is typically reserved for my specific schedule.  Things like work, doctor appointments, special plans, and more.  And, I add the expected weather for the days of the week above the date/days, even though we live in Michigan, and the weather can change on a dime! ?

There are convenient lined pages for notes before the start of each month.  Right now I’m using this space to brainstorm blog post ideas for the upcoming month.  I can then remove the sticky note from the notes page, and add them to the weekly page as I plan out what I’m writing about for that week.  Cool, huh?!

Next, is then the Monthly Overview.  This one’s looking kind of bare, but I’m not done.  The days will fill in with everything under the sun imaginable in the coming weeks!  Don’t worry! ?

Here’s a sneak peek at a blank Weekly Overview.  I love the lines areas for more goal setting, and the special box to add a Thankful Thought for the week!

At the back of the planner, there is a tab that says, “Notes”.  This section includes lined, graph, and blank paper for even more creative ways to plan and organize your life!

A new feature this year, that I’m absolutely loving, is the Future Planning Months for 2018.  Holy Goodness! I don’t even want to think about 2018!  But, it certainly is nice to have a place to write down thing to remember for the next year.  I’m always saying, “I need to remember that for next year!” And, now I have a place to mark those things down!  Hooray!

One last final quote, and then there are stickers…lots and lots of stickers!  I don’t know what it is about stickers that gets me all giddy! I think it’s that they make me feel like a kid again.  Except Erin’s stickers are sophisticated and beautiful!  They are the perfect addition to your planner!

I had to order the Travel/Adventure Planning Dashboard this year!  Once again, it’s removable just like the “What To Eat Dashboard”, for easy organized packing for trips! What could be better than that?!

There is a beautiful colorful circle pocket in the back, that’s perfect for holding additional stickers, invitations, cards, etc.  It even comes with a matching “baby” planner that’s perfect for tucking into your purse.

Another feature this year that I’m grateful for, is the clear pouch that is easy to open!  Also, you have the option to leave it unattached to the planner, or snap it in using an included coil clip!  I love having the option to remove it.  It’s also filled with goodies, including coupons to use (or share ?) on even more accessories!
