Staying Organized with My Erin Condren Life Planner
Guys, I have a confession to make: I'm a planner addict. Yup! With all the technology we have at our disposal I still prefer to actually write things down. Writing stuff down helps me to remember too. Not having a planner for a few years was driving me crazy! I have plenty of notebooks, post-its etc but there's something about having a single place where all of your things live. So when I found out that Erin Condren was having a 40% off sale I JUMPED on it and got myself an Erin Condren life planner. I mean, wouldn't you?!You know I love me some inspirational quotes! It was a no brainer for me and I went with the quotes life planner, and I found one that was perfect for me:
"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined." ~Henry David Thoreau.
I added my name, nickname, and the blog info on the cover. I love that you can personalize this! My boyfriend (though he drives me absolutely insane) is such a huge supporter of everything I do and is an influential person behind the blog. Adding a picture of us on the back is great was my way of reminding myself of that, to keep myself in check basically LOL! You can choose not to add an image if you want.
Now, my favorite part of this planner are all the motivating words and phrases it contains on almost every single page: These colorful bands help to keep the book together and in good shape. I didn't go too crazy with ordering stickers and all that. I prefer to keep it simple. The bands and fiber point pens were all I needed (at the moment at least). The folder and plastic pouch in the back come in really handy for storing the pens and all the cute labels it came with. The organizing part: My closet isn't the only that's color coordinated, so is my planner! Handy colorful blank stickers came with the planner and I designated a color for the main priorities I have. It helps me stay on track with what I have to do for acting, my professional website, the blog, what the bf has going on, birthday's...you name it. The past few weeks have been hectic with auditions and appointments, writing down my daily tasks, sometimes a week in advance, helps me to stay on track.
In the back there is a section for keeping notes, which I love, and it also came with a perpetual calendar and contacts booklet.
Not going to lie to y'all, this planner ain't cheap but it's hella worth it. I love the many options available and the personalization capabilities you have with, not to mention all of the accessories you can purchase for your life planner. If you're in need/want/lusting for a planner then I recommend you check out the collections at Erin Condren. They're so resourceful, cute, colorful...I honestly can't say enough!
