Planners are life. Well, maybe they aren’t life but a huge lifesaver. I’ve always loved having a planner because they help me to stay organized and I feel like I have my life together when I use them. I’ve bought one every year since probably middle school when they had us start using planners for school. For 2016 and the rest of 2015 I decided to splurge and purchase an Erin Condren Life Planner. I’ve had my eye on this planner literally for a few years but haven’t took the plunge to buy one. The price is a little steep for a planner, but I honestly think it will be worth the price.
I ordered the Prism Metallic Gold Life Planner in Light Taupe with the vertical layout. I thought the light taupe/gold prism cover was perfect for me. It resembles what I want my life for the next year to look like and I adore these two colors together. When my package came in the mail, I was so excited that I had the box open before I walked back in the front door. The packaging is so cute and they really put thought into how it is packaged which I think shows that they company cares. So in my package was my planner, a 3-pack of gold elastic bands to keep my planner together, and a little welcome packet with free gift labels for it being my first purchase. To be honest, I was a little shocked at the size of the planner. It was a lot smaller than I thought it would be. I mean, I knew it was going to be a 7″ x 9″ planner because that’s what the listing says, but for some reason I thought it would be bigger. I love the size of it though, it’s perfect!
This is what the life planner contains:
- Movable plastic ruler
- Removable Covers, you can buy seasonal covers and switch them out
- 2 Pages with full monthly calendars on it
- A section for each month; contains a full calendar for that month plus weekly layouts for each week in the month
- A Notes section with severable pages to write on; lined, graph, and blank paper
- A sheet of birthday stickers
- A sheet of other stickers for different appts and whatnot
- 2 pages of blank stickers
- A double-sided folder with 2 pockets
- A plastic zip-case to hold miscellaneous things for your planner
All-in-all, I am super happy with my choice to purchase this planner. I know that I will be using it a ton and it has a lot to offer! I know that I want to get in to planning with stickers so maybe in the near future I will have a sticker haul for all of you planner lovers out there!
