Erin Condren Life Planner - Work, Life, Baby

Hey guys! Happy Monday! Today I have a post all about my new Erin Condren planner! It's fitting for a Monday post, wouldn't you say? So, I know you see a lot of bloggers now getting into the whole planning thing but I used to be into this stuff way back in high school...15 years ago, haha. I still have all my old stationery, stickers, some pens...but my old planners I think are long gone.

When I saw how colorful and cute the Erin Condren Life Planners were, I knew I had to have one. Yes, they are a bit pricey, but I managed to get mine for 25% off. I'll let you know how you can save on one at the end of my post.

Okay, let's get into it! I immediately fell in love with the Platinum Turquoise life planner. It's just so darn pretty. I also got my first name and my blog name as my personalization (which is FREE, by the way). I love anything personalized and I think that after this, I am hooked for life.

This is the inside front cover. I haven't put anything in it - I think I'll leave it blank. No need to ruin such a beautiful inside cover.

Now we're getting into the first few pages before the actual calendars. Don't you just love how colorful it is? Oh, and, who's with me on smelling brand new books/paper? I know I'm not the only weird one, right?

Live by these words: Work hard, play hard. It's a constant reminder to just keep on doing what I'm doing. Little Nat definitely makes sure I work hard, haha.

Here is a look into the months at a glance. Again, look at the bright colors. Doesn't this make you WANT to get organized? It sure helps me stay motivated to write things down!

True statement right there. If you're not into inspirational quotes, I totally understand but it's nice to get a reminder like this every day. I'm sure you've had days where you think that life could be better and just perfect. Now that I've had my daughter, I definitely feel like my life is perfect AND wonderful.

YAY, planner pages! So this is my first full week of planning. I find that on Sunday nights, I jot down all of the constants for the week like Nat's bath days, my work meeting times, and my checklist for the week. I bring it to work with me every day and add things as they happen. I also was very sporadic in my sticker placement for this week but the next week looks a lot better. I'll also list the shops I got my stickers from. You'll want to check them out for sure!

Welcome to my 2nd full week! As you can see, I've added hydration tracker stickers to my pages. I also got custom Bikini Body Mommy Challenge stickers for my daily exercises. I do feel like having to check things off physically give me more accountability for my actions each day. There's something to be said for the satisfaction of seeing my success each day, even if it is for getting all 8 glasses of water in each day. Love my owl sticker?

At the back of each book there are a number of "freebies" like these blank note sheets. I haven't used the note sheets yet - I can't decide what I want to use them for. In any case, there are enough pages for anyone to use for miscellaneous things. There are also pages of stickers for events, birthdays, and blank ones to write your own events on. LOVE them!

After the note sheets, there is a little folder to "keep it together" and I use these to hold some sticker sheets and my budget book/address book.

Erin Condren Life Planner | Kat Stays Polished

Yep, my budget book and address book. Again, seeing out budget in person, on paper, makes me more accountable for things. I also get to see every month what things cost. I have "Bill Due" stickers too and last week I had a bill due on almost every single day. I would not have realized this if it weren't for me physically tracking it each day. I don't use the address book just yet. It's still blank, haha.

Erin Condren Life Planner | Kat Stays Polished

Yep, there's more stuff! This planner also comes with a little zip pouch to keep stickers, clips, pens - anything you want! Again, love my owls? =)

With each planner purchase, you get FREE custom stickers as well as general gift tag stickers. They're too pretty to use!

I purchases a set of 8 coil clips for my planner. They basically allow you to add anything on any page to your planner. It's got a sticky side (which is permanent) so whatever you want to place in your planner stays put.

Yay, the end! This is the back of my planner. I absolutely LOVE this planner and I don't think I'll be switching brands anytime soon. So now let's get on with how you can get yours!

  2. I'm obsessed with the smell of new "school" supplies (which I call any kind of stationery/planner etc lol) and books!!! I love the month look on this, but I also love a planner that allows me to fill in appointments on a weekly basis so each day has a bigger writing area. I'll have to check out and see if they offer this!

  13. I love the silver and turquoise. I'm been using a planner for years and switching between many of them... I think it's a great way to kill the monotony of technology and keep us engaging in our daily lives without the computer. :)
