I received a gift card to purchase an Erin Condren Gold Edition Life Planner for purposes of evaluation. No monetary compensation was received for this post. Thoughts are my own.
No matter how advanced our technology may be these days, I still believe that nothing beats actual paper planners. For me at least. I love it when I can see my commitments, to-do lists and special dates on a sheet (or sheets) of paper that I can refer to without the distraction of calls, texts, apps and phone games. And I’m not just talking about plain planners here. I love it when my planner is a beautifully designed and laid out notebook — like the filofax in the 90s but much much much better!
And last year, I found out about Erin Condren planners. After checking out what’s included in one and seeing the awesomely designed pages, I decided to purchase my very first Erin Condren planner. It was a classic Candy Lace Life Planner and I still love it after a year of using it!
And now that I need a new planner for the next months, I decided to go for one of their Gold Edition Life Planners. Check out how beautiful it looks! The photos of the gold and white cover below doesn’t really do much justice to how it actually looks in real life. I had to adjust my camera’s angle because it’s shiny, but at least you get an idea.
Each Erin Condren Life Planner is filled with encouraging quotes about life. And each page is laid out and designed with a unique color pattern that I just love!
There are pages for recording birthdays and anniversaries for the year, pages for viewing each month and pages for viewing each week. Each day of the week is separated by “morning, day and night” which is perfect for me because that’s exactly how I plan my day.
The Life Planner has stickers for birthdays, anniversaries, parties, vacations, appointments, etc. And if you need stickers for events that aren’t in the pre-labeled ones, Erin Condren also includes blank stickers so you can write your own event/title on it.
Reminiscent of pre-smartphone days, there is a page for “My Important Numbers” which is specially helpful if you want to make sure you have a backup of contacts you don’t want to lose in case you lose or brick your phone.
There are 20 lined and blank Notes pages in the Life Planner and I must admit that this is one of my favorite parts in the planner because I almost always have something to write — be it Sunday church messages or minutes of meetings or vacation lists or just plain doodles.
And if you have papers that need to be kept with your planner, it has a “keep it together” folder and a zip lock pocket for those!
Erin Condren also includes a few extras in your Life Planner — some gift labels and stickers with your name on it. Regular price for Erin Condren Planners range from $50 to $75 but they’re currently having a 40% off sale for 2014 planners so you can get one for just $30-$45. The price may seem a bit steep for some and I used to think that way too. But I just love Erin Condren Planners so much that I feel that it’s worth the price anyway.
They have LOTS of other awesome products that you need to check out so be sure to visit ErinCondren.com to see their full line!
