My 2012 Planner

Ever since I can remember, I've used a planner. Back in middle school and high school, we called them agenda books. In college, my planner was chock full with party study dates, classes and homework. Even in law school, I kept all my school information organized in a planner. 

These days, I've upgraded to Outlook on my computer to calendar all of my work appointments, hearings and meetings. But I still like to keep my personal information written down the old-fashioned way. Enter Erin Condren. This year I received an Erin Condren planner in my stocking and wow, am I impressed.
You can customize the cover of your planner with your name, your color choice and even photos. I got this exact same chevron cover except in a bold, punchy red. I love it!

The beginning of the planner has all of the awesome spots for special dates, monthly at-a-glance calendars, note taking etc.  It's an easy way to get a good big picture idea of your month.




 The design of the planner is absolutely perfect for me. I love that it has a "morning," "day" and "night" section so that I can organize my to-do lists and appointments throughout the day. Perfection!


This bad boy even has stickers... it's easy to mark and remember important events this way!


Oh and don't forget the pocket + zipper pouch in the back of the planner to hold your random assortment of items... coupons, stamps, pictures... it all fits!
My only complaint is that the planner is a little hefty in size + weight. But if you're unlike me and don't obsessively carry your planner with you everywhere you go, that might not be a problem. Oh and I absolutely love the little tabs marking each month, but mine have already gotten completely bent and ruined. Again, probably my fault for carrying the planner everywhere I go (what if you need to know when your next dentist appointment is while you're out a bar? I mean, seriously). Needless to say, those are small potatoes. I will definitely be ordering a 2013 planner from them as well. I love it!

So there you have it, my 2012 planner from Erin Condren. Check out all of their calendars here and the rest of the products in the shop!

*Pssst! I have no affiliation with Erin Condren. I simply adore their product and thought I'd share!

  1. Hi Michelle,
    I have one as well and I love it. Just wanted to suggest something for the tabs. I used heavy, clear packing tape around each of the tabs and it definitely has helped alot. Just cut them to size and they have the laminated look.

    1. I was just going to suggest the same thing! I have an Erin Condren planner as well, and I just put clear packing tape on the taps because they were getting so bent! ;)

  3. Great idea! I use Outlook for work too, but got out of the habit of using a planner for my personal life. I've definitely felt the need for it lately, so maybe I'll pick one of these up!

  11. I love my planner. A lot of our plans are last minute nowadays but I try to keep it all written down as best I can. It helps me feel more in control.

  12. I love my Erin Condren planner, too! It just makes me happy. I love that I can keep lists in it, along with my daily to-dos. I had the same problem with my tabs - after a month, the tabs were bent and separating. I folded a piece of tape over each of them as protection and that seems to be working fine...

  13. I like the idea of keeping a planner for personal use. I use Google Calendar so I can access it on my phone, but it's tough for to do lists. You definitely have me intrigued.

  16. I totally miss keeping a written planner, but like you all of my work appointments are in Outlook and I would be a mess trying to keep track of multiple planners. But these look great!

  17. Ahh too funny, I just sent the link to the same exact planner to my husband yesterday and told him I wanted one for Valentine's Day! I too started using a planner in middle school and with baby appointments, blog scheduling, and life coming up, I need something a little more hefty than the little Target one I've used for about 3 years.
