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!
