Planner addiction is a real thing, people!
I've always been a sucker for planners. Just throw a notebook or a planner in front of me with a pretty cover and crisp, clean pages, and I have to have it. The problem is, I love to buy and collect them, but never can seem to use them consistently.
It's so easy to get excited about a gorgeous new planner and think about all the ways you are going to organize your life, then you get it home and well, it just sites there.
That is until I purchased my first Erin Condren LifePlanner. I ordered the 18-month version with an adorable paisley cover, and I absolutely love it! I can honestly say I use it weekly and it has really helped me to stay organized and keep my life in order.
I use it not only to keep track of to-do lists, appointments and reminders, but I also use it plan out new web designs and blog posts. Everything I need is in one place and easy to take with me wherever I go.
After I purchased my planner, I quickly discovered the world of stickers and accessories. And yes, like so many planner lovers across the world, I became obsessed with all the cute stickers, ink pens and coordinating accessories. Because your planner not only has to be functional, but cute too!
I recently found out that Amazon carries two sizes of the Hardbound LifePlanner and it's less expensive than ordering direct from the Erin Condren site. Bonus!
If you have an Amazon Prime membership (as long as your choice is in stock), you can get your planner in as little as two days. I waited over two weeks to receive mine.
Take a look at the new planner and some of my most favorite planner accessories. Happy Planning!
Erin Condren Hardbound LifePlanner
The hardbound LifePlanner is available in 2 sizes - 8 x 10 and 5 x 8, and has 4 color choices. I am completely smitten with the watercolor version. The planner has 18 months for you to plan till your heart is content.
Erin Condren Monthly Sticker Book
I have two Erin Condren sticker books, and I love them both. I actually have a hard time using the stickers because the book is so darn pretty. Weird, I know!
Don't you love the colors?
Staedtler Triplus Fineliner Pens
These pens are awesome! I have this pack plus some. The tip is super fine, and the variety of colors bring the pages of your planner to life. The ink is bright and vibrant and really stands out on the page.
Colorful Washi Tape Set
If you get the Erin Condren sticker book, it comes with strips similar to using washi tape. I think this set is so cheery and fun. You can use the tape strips to section off the days or just to dress the page up. So many possibilities.
Never used a planner? Maybe now is the time!
Never underestimate the power of a pretty planner. If you can take a little time to jot down the important things in your life, I think you will find that life becomes a little simpler, and we can all benefit from that. It also never hurts to have something pretty to look at each day.
