With the announcement today of the new Erin Condren Life planners launching on June 9th, I thought it was finally time to show you pics of my planner. I know some things may be changing in this, but overall, some will remain the same.
My use of this planner has evolved over the past 5 months and even this week I am trying a new way to organize my blog, youtube channel, and reviews. If you are looking for a video (less extensive) version It is below, but this post will definitely be more involved.
So let’s jump into my planner now:
This is my new cover and I am in love with it! The purple is so fun and the design is really pretty.
This is what I have filled out of the month view. You can see the rectangular stickers that use for events. These are located in the back of the planner, and will be shown later.
Here is what the week view looks like. If you are like me, you don’t use the Day, Evening, and Night boxes for that, so most of use decorate our planners to use for what we need. This is where the money happens, and there is a rabid fan base of people who crave washi and stickers (raises hand).
You can see how I decorate a week and use it here. The stickers are Avery labels (Below) that I run through my computer in the color and styles I need. Then I use those to keep track of blog and youtube postings.
Once you get past the calendar portion, there are pages you can write in, both lined and unlined. The top picture shows some washi tape I had put on it to make it a little more colorful. I use my pages for keeping track of things!
In the first picture, I write all the companies I would like to purchase products from to review. The bottom list is stickers of books I have read, and a list of movies coming out to put in my calendar when I get that week.
Finally in the life planner, there is a pocket to hold papers, a zipper pouch, and a few pages of stickers. The stickers are pre-printed as well as blank so you can use them any way you need to.
So of you have asked what things I add to my planner. You have already seen my dashboard which I make by laminating paper and adding either Erin Condren coil clips, or punching my own holes with a 1/8″ punch. This will allow the dashboard to snap into my coil. The green dashboard to the left is where I put my avery labels when I am planning to do the reviews. The bottom one is some spare post it’s.
I also make my own paper clips in many geeky styles. I will sell them if interested, simply message me for details!
And lastly, I wanted to show how I organize my washi tape. It is so much easier to wind them on plastic cards (I use old gift cards) then it is to have rolls moving around in an organizer.
I highly recommend this planner to anyone looking to keep track of anything. The price point is a little high ($50) but it is definitely worth it for something you are going to use every day of your year.
