Growing up back to school shopping at Staples was one of the most exciting things. My dad would take me and my sisters and he would let us go up and down every aisle. We would pick out everything we needed for that school year… and a few extras! There’s just something so inspiring about a brand new empty notebook. It’s just so full of possibilities!
Nowadays I don’t have as much need for a huge “school” supplies shopping trip. Instead I get that same excitement from getting a new planner. A brand new planner means a new chance for the year to accomplish all of my goals and really do everything I’ve said I would.
The latest planner I am trying out is the Erin Condren LifePlanner™. Let me tell you, it does just that! The amount of things I love about this planner seem to just keep growing but let me breakdown a few of my favorites!
Snap in add ons:
My favorite part about the Erin Condren LifePlanner™ is the snap in’s. A ruler comes with the purchase of your planner, which is great for marking which page you’re up to. My two favorite snap in’s though, are the meal planner and the stickers. The meal planner is so helpful because whenever Bill and I are organized with our lunch and dinner planning we always end up eating healthier and for less money. Win/win! Then, the stickers are great because not only can they be added to pages to make them look prettier but they can also be used to cover up mistakes you make in your planner!
The monthly and the weekly layout:
This format is my favorite because having both options keeps me as organized as possible! The monthly view is great for quickly checking to see what is already scheduled for the month so that there are no overlaps in planning! Then, the weekly view allows you to add a ton more detail to each day, such as exact times for plans or your to-do list!
The cover designs:
I love how many cover design options there are for the Erin Condren LifePlanner™! I ended up choosing the pink flowers on the black background because I not only loved the color combination, but also because black would help to mask any stains I might get. I also was so excited that most of the Erin Condren products are customizable! I chose to put my blog name on the cover of my planner and I think this will help me to really feel inspired!
The inspirational quotes and stickers:
There’s nothing that keeps me more motivated than inspirational quotes. I always end up feeling just that, inspired, when reading them. That’s why I love that they’re sprinkled throughout the LifePlanner™! Anytime I’m feeling down in my work I can just flip to a page with a #bossbabe quote it and get right on back to work!
