I’m *finally* blogging about the Erin Condren Life Planner and I’m having a GIVEAWAY!! Woot Woot!
Erin Condren sent the planner to me, but the opinions are my own (obviously!)!!!!
Here we go!
First, I was asked to pick out my planner and customize it.
This was EXTREMELY DIFFICULT.
I mean, it took me forever because there are a MILLION options and I couldn’t decide. Really. I went back and forth and then forth and back and then I would log off, only to log back on again, and start the process all over again.
I finally went with this!
I purposefully wanted the first letter in each of my names to be lowercase. 🙂 I think it’s cute. I do realize it’s not grammatically correct, but that’s the beauty of personalizing your planner. You can do whatever you want. So there.
I even picked the coil color. Which I also agonized over, by the way. There are 4 color options: platinum, gold, rose gold, and black.
This is the inside front cover and it’s like a dry-erase board!!! HOW COOL IS THIS??!!!
I went with the colorful feature for inside the planner, but there is a new “neutral” theme that you can use. I chose colorful because I like color! It makes me happy! But I did go back and forth about whether or not to go with the neutral colors just because I also like a modern look . . . I’m telling you, personalizing a planner is a nice problem to have. 🙂
Here are some of the inspirational quotes before each month:
I LOVE THESE!!! They’re inspiring and pretty!
You can choose the layout you want from vertical, horizontal, or hourly. I chose hourly because I like the idea of using the hours for list making. So rather than write down “Staff Meeting” on the 8am slot, I plan on just making my list for that particular day down the lines. Kind of like a notepad . . . 🙂
In the back, there is a section for notes!!!!!
And in the very back is a large pocket to hold accessories and such . . .
Look at some of the accessories that are available!!!
Stickers galore!! I can’t wait to start playing around with those!
Mini Bookmarks that just snap right in.
A “dashboard” that you can use with those dry erase markers!
AND . . . INTERCHANGEABLE COVERS! That means, if I get tired of my current cover, I can swap it out for a different cover!
HOW COOL IS THAT?! I love love love love love that feature!
Erin Condren has seriously thought of everything!!
I’m going to be so organized in life, I can just feel it! 🙂
Let’s have a GIVEAWAY!!
I’m giving away a $100 gift card to Erin Condren! That means you could personalize a planner AND get some accessories to go with it! Woohoo!
I’m so excited!

So I’ve been doing nothing this summer – NUH-THING!! Well, nothing productive anyway. I’ve vegged on my TV shows and read. BOOKS! Yes! More than one! And I’ve been keeping up with your blog and have been awaiting this giveaway. I was curious about the planner but now that I’m seeing it – SHUT UP!!! We don’t get cool planners at my school – we’re a private Christian school so it’s like “You get what you get and you don’t pitch a fit” or “go buy your own” sort of deal. I would love to be the envy of my teacher friends – although envy isn’t a very good Christian attribute so I would very humbly show them my very awesome planner that I don’t have to share. And all I had to do was like your TpT store, which I already did. And I’m thinking, it can’t be that simple, can it? Surely not. But it is! Thank you so much for the opportunity and I hope you are enjoying every minute of your summer!
Fingers crossed!! I loooove your planner!
Carla Cundiff says
Just ordered the same planner! It is my first and I’m really excited to use it! I agree all the options made it difficult to choose!

What a fabulous opportunity! We are provided the same old boring calendar in my district, although I know some school districts don’t provide them at all, so I guess I should t complain. But, I agree, how much more exciting it is to plan and organize your day and lessons with something soooo pretty! (I love that cover pattern as well.) I have debated with myself the last couple of years about buying one, but always talked myself out of it by rationalizing that I could use that money to purchase something for my room (can we say DJ Inkers… love ’em) or for my students. I can just see you with your glass of wine, colored pens filling out your upcoming events. Ha ha.. So I will keep my fingers crossed that my name/number comes up! Thanks again !
PS. Have fun in Florida at the TPT conference !
As I am reading these comments about “boring planners” and “you get what you get”—in our district, we get nada! And I never really thought about it or pitied myself before but now I do! So I better win this planner so I can feel less like a victim of plannerlessness and more like a winner. Either way, I hope to meet you in person at TpT Orlando because that would be even better than winning!
