Life Planner

If you read many blogs, I'm sure you've heard about erincondren.com.  I was a little behind the rest of the crowd when I fell in love last month.  I'm am sometimes easily influenced, but I will not purchase something unless I NEED it (because I'm cheap).  Well, the Erin Condren Life Planner?  Yes, I NEED that!

After I found this planner that I just had to have, I went searching for a deal.  I was completely lucky that I caught the last few hours of a sale on one of those discount deals websites.  They had $50 e-gift cards for $25 to erincondren.com.  I ordered right away at 3 a.m. when I saw this deal.  The next morning Pat saw the confirmation for some purchase and knowing I had done it in the middle of the night asked what I bought.  I told him not to worry about it.

So yesterday my planner finally came, and it is every bit as gorgeous as I imagined.  Let me show it to you...

It came in this gorgeous box--even the packaging is pretty.  
Inside that box wrapped cutely in yellow tissue is my planner.
And also a whole bunch of free labels.  Some are personalized from me and others are blank gift tags.  
This company sure does take care of it's customers.  



And then there is my gorgeous, customized life planner.

So do you want to take a look inside?  

There are pages where you can list out special dates for each month.  
 At the beginning of each month in the planner there is a cute little saying.  
 There is a month view on the tab page.  
 And here is the week view.  I love that the days are split into morning, day, and night.  I also like the goals and to do section at the side.  
 There are stickers to put in for birthdays, parties, appointments, etc.  
 And many blank ones to create your own.  
I love that it has a pocket flap too.   
 And in the back there is a zip pocket that I keep my pens in and a calendar for 2013 and 2014.  

If that doesn't make you want one, I don't know what will ;)

Some people have complained that their tabs were getting bent and looking worn.  I put a little bit of clear packing tape on mine and trimmed it up with small scissors.  I looks really nice like that, and I think it will protect them too.
 And of course you'll need pretty pens to write with!

And just to let you know, be on the look out for some sort of deal when the ErinCondren.com facebook page reaches 5,000.  They're almost there, so hurry up and like them already ;)

This was not a paid review.  I got nothing for it.  They don't know me.  I'm just a little person who loves planners.  ;)

Oh I love your planner! I just got mine in the mail last week. I absolutely love it! That is a great idea about the tape over the tabs. I am going to have to give that a try.

Yay for fun planners! :)

This is what I asked for for my birthday (which is next week). And since I saw a charge on our card from her website, I'm assuming my husband ordered one for me. I cannot wait to get it! I loved the tour of yours! (I'll probably do the same thing once I get mine.) Congrats on your new goodie!!
