I'm a huge planner addict and I have been using the same company for seven years: Erin Condren! This company has everything you need to design the perfect planner for you! I'm not getting compensated for this post, I just love this company a lot and wanted to share a review of my 2017 Erin Condren Life Planner and the accessories I purchased.
First up: the star of the show... The 2017 Life Planner
^Your planner comes with your choice of the cover and there are so many options to choose from. I chose the signature paisley cover. You can add your name, initials, quote, or even make a cover with your own pictures on it.^
There are many different options you can choose from to customize your planner so that it works perfectly for you & how you plan. There are three layouts to choose from as well as two color themes. There are four color options for the coil of your Life Planner.
Three Layout Options: Vertical, Horizontal, Hourly
Color Themes: Colorful or Netural
Coil Colors: Platinum, Black, Gold, Rose Gold
I have always chosen the Vertical layout as that's what I find works best for me. The color themes are a new addition to the planner for 2017 as we've never had that as a option before. I chose colorful because I love bright colors and my motto is the more color, the better! I chose the platinum coil for my planner.
^One of the new changes this year is that on the back of each cover, it comes with a dashboard in which you can use dry erase markers on. This is a photo showing the back of the front cover of my planner.^
^The gorgeous vellum sheet with a new design by the Erin Condren team. This design is called Mid-Century Circles and is so pretty!^
^Quote pages. I love the quotes that Erin Condren puts on her social media pages and I'm so happy that some are always included in the planners.^
^Current & Next year at a glance pages^
^I think these pages are wonderful and this is the second year that they have been included in the planner. Last year, I used them to keep track of birthdays & anniversaries but this year I'm going to use them for something else. I haven't decided what that is yet.^
^Blank page before month^
^Quote page before month^
I forgot to take a picture of the monthly view but it is the same as last year so I will post a picture from that planner:
^Weekly layout. In previous years, when we didn't have a choice between the color themes, each month/week had two colors combined in the layout. In the picture show above of the monthly view of January from last year, the colors are orange & light blue. February was red & light pink and so on. This year, the planners are one color for the month/view. I like both styles but the colors in the previous years planners, were more bright.^
^The note pages included in the back of the planner are still the same. You get 6 lined pages, 4 graph pages, and 4 blank pages.^
^These pages are a new addition to the 2017 planner. You get a two page spread of 12 boxes with the months of January 2018-December 2018 (the following year as this is a 2017 planner), with four spaces to write underneath each month. I think this is a great way to mark down special events for the following year that you'll need to remember or keep track of. On the bottom of each page, is a big box that says In the Coming Year and that you can write it whatever you want! I really love these pages and I think it's a wonderful new addition.^
^The stickers in the 2017 planner have new colors. We get two pages of regular shaped stickers (one with text such as day off, hair appointment, game, etc. and one sheet of blank stickers). A new addition for this year is that we have two sheets of stickers with different edging on them, which include a full sheet of birthday stickers and one sheet of blank stickers that you can write on.^
^The improved keep it together folder with the gorgeous Mid-Century circles design.^
^Once again, we receive a Perpetual Calendar which is a great way to keep track of birthdays, anniversaries and other important dates in your life.^
^The pouch that previously came attached to your planner in the back now comes unattached from the planner so that you can clip it in with a coil clip wherever you want it to be, in the front, back. or somewhere else. I really love this option as it means we can keep the pouch when the year is over and we're now longer using that planner.^
^The extras included in your pouch are the coil clip (to connect your pouch to your planner), a mini sample sticker book, 3 compliment cards, and two 20% off coupons.^
And that is the new & updated 2017 Life Planner from the Erin Condren company!
And now onto the accessories...
^I purchased the watercolor sticky notes, which is a new design that they just started selling.^
^This is another new accessory: mini-snap in bookmarks to keep track of what week you're on. They have a few different design options for these and I got the set that includes the paisley print, the Chevron print, and the colorful polka dots.^
^I purchased another pack of the party pops markers because I use these a lot and I really love the bright colors!^
^I also picked up a set of their newest collection of compliment cards.^
I also ordered two of the new sticker books that were recently released. I ordered two because I'm obsessed with the stickers that Erin Condren & her wonderful team make!
^One of the unique touches that I love every time I receive an Erin Condren order is that we are sent a really beautiful sticker & post card in our order. I love receiving these stickers & post cards and I keep and collect them! I think this is such a fun addition that the company does and it always makes me smile.^
