Towards the end of last year, I was in a frantic search for a new planner that would accommodate the needs of our household. Now, it may sound extreme to be pursuing the perfect planner….however, between homeschooling 3 of our kids, taking our oldest to high school, working part-time, blogging full-time, and taking our kids to a variety of activities (youth club, baseball, karate, cheer, dance….), I need a system to keep everything in place.
I’ve tried the whole “virtual” calendar online and on my phone, but I am such a visual person, that I just can’t “see” it without a paper planner. And I like having a planner that does it all – a way to keep track of appointments and schedules, a place to take notes and jot down “to do” lists, somewhere to store papers, notes, etc…..is that to much to ask of a planner?!
As I dove into my online search for a planner, I stumbled across the Erin Condren website. And I knew that I had found IT….my planner. The Life Planner had everything I needed and suited my needs perfectly. Both the front and back covers of the planner are heavily laminated, enabling it to last through months of flipping through pages and event planning.
The inside of the planner is so vibrant with splashes of color, designs, and quotes. Of the many features, the most notable include:
- snap-in page holder/bookmark that doubles as a ruler
- spiral bound & lays flat when open
- special dates calendar for birthdays and anniversaries
- laminated monthly tabs
- your choice of start month
- double page monthly spread
- weekly double page spreads
- 18 lined pages for notes
- 10 blank pages for notes
- customizable important numbers list
- important addresses page
- 180 colorful special events stickers
- 60 colorful blank stickers
- flat zip lock pouch for photos, receipts, coupons, etc.
- folder to keep together loose papers
You also have the option of customizing your planner with photos on the front and back cover. Plus, if you want to add on other fun accessories, there are a number to choose from, including photo stickers, colorful ballpoint pens, and matching note pads.
The Erin Condren line does include other items besides the planner as well – notebooks, calendars, recipes cards & boxes, stationery, address labels, gift labels, note pads, invitations, announcements, and more. The site is fun look through, and is very user friendly.
