planner-4Oh how I love being able to introduce you all to things that I love!

Last year after a brief complaining session to a friend of mine about how disorganized I was, she introduced me to the Erin Condren Life Planner.  After she showed me hers I knew I had to pick one up, so I placed my order as soon as I returned home and, literally, it has changed my life! I’m no longer forgetting about appointments, losing my meal plan or missing friends’ birthdays! Now, this isn’t an inexpensive planner, but in my opinion it is the best one available and now the I’ve used it for an entire year, I don’t know how I’d ever go without it.

I just received my 2014 planner in the mail and realized that I’ve never shared this incredible tool with you all! Now I could take an hour explaining all the ins and outs of this planner, but I think this video from the Erin Condren website does a pretty awesome job at that. Give it a quick watch…


Yes, a planner can seriously do all that! 


I love that this planner offers several ways to stay organized. Here is the monthly view – notice the extra room on the right for notes – I love that!

planner-1As you can tell, I started using my planner pretty much the second I got it out of the box. I was a little tardy in ordering it this year, so for the first couple days of January I felt a little organizationally naked. 😉

One of my very favorite things about this planner is that the cover is completely customizable! How cute are these designs?! Here are a few more that I love:

Just head on over here to check out all of their adorable designs and to get started with your own planner!

      I didn’t want to post the question to throw my chance (can’t award the woman that asked) but I’m so excited and ready to order my own planner if needbe. Can’t really afford it so really hopeful.

  2. Stacy says

    I’m so glad I can back to this post- I didn’t realize you were giving one away! I am one of your email subscribers.

  3. Karla Gravert says

    Love the fleur felize classic planner design. Wow, what a great share as I was looking for a way to become more organized – my cell phone tools were not cutting it!

  4. Kristina Weitz says

    I’m already a subscriber to your email and I’m now a subscriber of your facebook page too! (Should i say subscriber or worshipper?)

  5. Kristina Weitz says

    Oooh! Pretty Pretty! I love pinks and purples and organizing! (Or attempting to keep my life organized!) With this, I’m positive I’d be able to get things in order! This fleur feliz watercolor -pinks/purples (PLN14-29) HAS to be my favorite!

  6. Christine Reis says

    I love the Viva Espana Granada Groove! But they are really all really nice. I found it hard to pick one!

  7. Latoya says

    Hi, I’d LOVEEEE this planner as I’ll be starting my first semester of nursing school in a few weeks and I can’t justify spending the $ on this after I spent a TON on textbooks :( My favorite design is the WILD one – animal print & i are VERY good friends! I also liked ya on Facebook and subscribed to the email list. Thank you!

  8. Darla says

    I’m a fb fan, email subscriber & have your app on my phone- luv luv you daily email except it arrives a bit late -1pm mst for me wish it was earlier :-( just so I didn’t miss out on some of the deals I’m interested in. Learning to open my app when I have the time. I have yet to find a planner that works for me but this could be the one!

  9. Madeline says

    I am really loving the Classic Life Planner Reality Blooms-Roses-Pink! I am always after my husband to get me flowers, which he doesn’t do nearly enough, so with this planner, I can carry them with me!

  10. Kristin Martin says

    I would pick the dahlia classic life planner. Something feminine for a mom who’s always putting her family of boys first :)

  11. Michelle Hamilton says

    The 2014 life planner -GOLD EDITION -purple looks very pretty.

    I also like 2014 life planner -wild -multi.

  12. Jennifer says

    My favorite design has to be the e sea-sea life in seafoam. Reminds me of our time at the beach two summers ago.

  13. Leanne Iscaro says

    Another post to say that I receive your emails daily but on my last post I gave you the wrong email address. Sorry!

  14. Leanne Iscaro says

    I LOVE the paisley planner! I just recently dug out a small notebook to put all of my thoughts in as I was getting tired of trying to find a note a wrote amongst 50 pieces of paper. Thanks!

  15. jen hamilton says

    I love the happy stripes design. Colored stripes, with white writing up the side & a picture- it’s perfect:)

  16. Teresa says

    Love the “picture this full frame.” and I am a facebook friend.

    How portable is this planner? Do you tote yours around? How would you say this planner differs for you from a generic one sold at the office store? Did you previously use a planner? I love the idea but I am apprehensive about the cost if it ends up collecting dust on the shelf due to lack of use. How long would you say it took you to “become one” with the planner?

    • says

      Hi Teresa~ To answer your questions…

      The planner is very portable, and yes, I take it everywhere with me. :) I’ve tried other planners before, but they’ve never really done the trick and just ended up on a shelf in my office after a few weeks. I don’t know exactly what it is about these that makes them so easy to use and stick to, but I love it, whatever it is. 😉 I pretty much “became” one with my planner the day I received it…I’m almost never without it now. I hope that helps!

  17. Christy says

    My favorite planner is the classic life planner- picture this cutout! Seeing that family picture will remind me of why I have the planner in the first place.

  18. Kim says

    I love the peacock planner – beautiful colors! HUGE fan of erin condren, but haven’t had a chance to try them out!

  19. Meredith says

    My action plan for 2014 includes being more organized. This would totally help! I like the Paisley Multi-Colored Life Planner. Hope I win!!

  20. Gina says

    I would choose the zig zag hot pink planner. I am probably the most unorganized person. This would help me so much especially staying on top of college.

  21. Kathy M says

    I absolutely love the paisley planner!!! I am also a facebook and email subcriber!!! Love all you do for us!

  22. Stacy says

    I really like the “Favorite Things” planner. I haven’t ordered a personal planner yet this year because they don’t make the one I’ve loved in the past. This might be my new one!

  23. LaShel Crandall says

    I am a facebook fan and would love to attempt to keep my family of 5 of track with the 2014 life planner -frame me -light gray/pool! I have a husband that works shift work, 3 kids in school at each level (High School, Middle School and Elementary). It is a nightmare to try to keep track on the wall calendar!!! This would be a great addition to our family. Thanks for all your suggestions and saving us money!!

  24. Crystal says

    I’m also a facebook fan and so glad you shared this item. This looks like just what I need. Just subscribed to the daily email!

  25. Angela says

    I am a Facebook Fan and I get the emails! I got so many great deals this Christmas because of this page!!!! Love it.

  26. Carolyn says

    I am a Facebook Fan and I love the Flowers Planner. I lately feel like I am losing my mind and would love one of these to keep my head attached!
