How To Stay Organized With The Erin Condren LifePlanner

Happy FRI-YAY, fabulous. I’m currently jamming to T-Swift and feeling really blessed that I get to do this as my job. HOLLA. Thank YOU so much for making this a reality for me. Today I’m super excited to showcase my favorite planner in all the land: my Erin Condren LifePlanner. I’m completely obsessed with it. This planner does everything I need it to, and more. I always have some kind of complaint with paper planners (because I’m hyper-organized and need certain specifications) but I haven’t found anything I don’t LOVE about my LifePlanner yet, so let’s dive into this.

First things first: I am an organization FREAK. I’m serious. I have crazy color coding, stickers, and markers/highlighters. Here is how I break down using my EC LifePlanner so I get the most out of it. It’s so easy to stay in control with a planner this detailed – I just have to fill it out!!!

Creating Your Perfect Planner

How To Stay Organized With The Erin Condren LifePlanner

This is my favorite part. The life planner is totally customizable from the binding, to the cover, to the actual inside pages. I spent like an hour and a half putting mine together online. I chose the watercolor world for my front and back cover because I am really focusing on doing some awesome traveling with my husband in the next year or two. We love traveling and it’s a huge part of our lives, so it was appropriate. You can do everything from flowers, to personalized pictures, geometric designs, etc. It’s pretty much endless.

I chose my gold binding because it went perfectly with the yellow part of the map. The options are rose gold, silver, black or gold. I also opted to put my name on the cover. I loved that I could personalize it like that! As for my inside, I went with the colorful quotes and sayings, and chose the horizontal layout for my days of the week. You can also choose a vertical layout, but for how I like to organize my day, the horizontal works better for me.

Choose Your Accessories

How To Stay Organized With The Erin Condren LifePlanner

This is where it gets super fun. I chose SO many fun accessories for my planner. I started with a basic marker kit. This is important for me because I color code my month-at-a-glance section. I use five basic colors to divide up my time: yellow for yoga/gym, pink for blog, blue for doctors/apts, green for social activities, purple for church activities.

I also chose a set of highlighters (I don’t use them super often, but on the off chance I needed a highlighter, I wanted to be able to have matching ones), some wet erase markers for my inside cover, and a ton of stickers. I got a separate sticker pack because I lovelovelovelove stickers. They are SO much fun to use. I snagged some really cute elastics to wrap around the outside of my planner to hold it closed.

My FAVORITE accessory is my snap in adventure plan page. It’s a wet erase marker situation so I can use it for each vacation. It has a handy packing list on one side and a weekly itinerary on the other side. Like I said above, I’m going to be traveling a lot this year and I love that I can easily keep track of my daily actives and packing list in one place.

How I Use It

How To Stay Organized With The Erin Condren LifePlanner

I utilize the month-at-a-glance section to plan out my content calendar for the month and write each blog post title in pencil and outline it in pink. I write on the bottom of the days whether or not I have yoga or gym time scheduled, likewise for church events / social situations / doctors apt / etc. I like to write what time each activity is at so that I can see what I’m doing at a glance. I will sometimes use appropriate stickers for certain events, too (like exclamation points for doctors apt, airplanes for vacations, etc).

When it comes to the daily planning tool, I like to list out each day’s activities. I will write down my “to-do” list in this area. In the empty block beside my horizontal lines, I will put down any apts/activities for the day as a reminder. If I don’t have anything scheduled for that day, I will put a motivational sticker or cute little doodle there instead.

I obviously use the adventure plan page to plan my vacations. It helps keep me on task and organized. There is also a little goal planning sheet in the beginning of the month. I use this to keep track of blog goals (page views, social media numbers, sponsored posts, etc.) and personal goals (trips to the temple, how many books I want to read, meals I want to cook LOL). There are two columns so it’s PERFECT for that. I find if I look at my goals every day, I am more apt to get them done.

I have had SUCH a fun time putting my planner together and working with Erin Condren. Getting new planner materials is like getting back to school supplies. AKA my favorite part of the year. I literally waited every day at my door hoping the UPS guy was bringing me my planner. LOL. It was like Christmas.

How To Stay Organized With The Erin Condren LifePlanner

If you are someone who likes pretty planners, fun office supplies and staying super organized, this is literally the planner for you. My mom got one, too, and when my sister found out that we had them and loved them, she got one, too. Now we are an Erin Condren fambam. I know you’ll love it.

    I need to get a planner. But whenever I find one, I’m always afraid of messing it up, so I never write in it lol :\

  13. Rachel | 7th Jul 17

    Such a cute planner! I used them all the time in high school and college but kind of fell off with them after. I might need to give it another try!

  14. jill conyers | 8th Jul 17

    I love planners. I may need an EC planner for 2018. I would have chosen the same cover.

  15. Rachel R Ritlop | 8th Jul 17

  19. Cameron - Diary of a Southern Millennial | 8th Jul 17

    I’m a pen and highlighter person too! And obsessed with planners – each time I see someone else’s I immediately want whatever planner they have haha. EC’s Life Planner has definitely been on my to-try list – maybe next year!

  20. Melissa | 8th Jul 17

    That planner looks so pretty! I love how colorful it is!I definitely need more stickets!

  21. Stephanie | 9th Jul 17

    I’ve been really wanting to get myself one of these planners. I so prefer writing everything down rather than using just my iCal to keep track of it all. Plus these are so cute!

  22. Rachael Thomas | 10th Jul 17

  26. Lauren | Glitter & Grandeur | 13th Jul 17

    I’ve been wanting to get this planner for a while now but haven’t had the extra funds or the trust that I’ll actually have the time to use it to its full potential. But I think you just convinced me to start working towards making my Erin Condren dreams a reality! I need a better planning schedule so that I can figure out this full-time job, blog, life balance thing. Also, I love your design! It’s super cute!
