My Friday Favorite is my Erin Condren Planner. I recently learned of this planner from other bloggers. People go crazy over this thing. I can honestly say I now understand why. You can personalize it from personal pictures to your favorite colors and sayings. I chose the Mod Morocco design with my custom colors Lavender and Seafoam. I then chose to do my initials and a bible verse that I saw fitting for my planner. The hardest part of the entire process was picking out a design and colors! I am not kidding. It took me days and many hours to decide. It doesn’t help I am such an indecisive person. ha As you will see I actually have two planners. The first one I bought was the Light Pink and Green planner. I made a mistake when ordering and clicked my full name to appear on the front instead of my initials. I contacted the company and they were very nice about my mistake and gave me a discount to order another planner. So since I was ordering a new planner I decided to change it up a bit. Ok a lot. I changed the colors and added a bible verse. I love it! I was so impressed with the packaging when it arrived. It was so cute and colorful. I appreciate little touches like this.
The inside was nicely wrapped with colorful paper. They sent me something extra too. An envelope that had personalized gift labels. Such a nice touch! There are so many different things you can add on to your order. Notepads, address labels, colorful pens, stationary and so much more. One of my favorite things was this “Call me – Let’s Play cards” that you can give to other moms for a playdate. They are so cute and say your name and mom to and your kids names. Such a cute idea.
Here is a list of features the life planner offers.
The inside of the planner is colorful and has so many different pages. You can easily get to your months with the laminated monthly tabs on the side.
The boxes have plenty of room to write all my appointments and such.
There is a special place for birthday and anniversaries. How helpful is that?
There are blank pieces of paper to write notes on. The have several different designs on the top.
Next it has cute colorful stickers for birthdays reminders, hair appointments and vacations. There is even a blank sheet so you can fill in your own title. I am really loving the stickers!
Here is a folder with a pocket to put loose paper in. It also holds a bookmark that doubles as a small ruler.
I love the various quotes listed on the monthly calendars. I also love that gives you space to write monthly goals and to-do list.
Now, I will say this is a pricey planner. $50.00 is the cost. Yikes! However, I purchased mine when they were on sale for $30.00. And good news, they are still on sale! I read so many good reviews I knew I would havet to try one. We are a very technology type family. My husband owns a web development company. That should say a lot. We don’t write checks for any of our bills. Everything is paid for online. Everything we do is done online. So my husband makes fun of me because I would rather have a planner then use my iphone calendar or Goggle calendar I have tried and it just doesn’t work for me. So this is how I roll.
“For I know the plans I have for you, “says the Lord, “plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
I chose this verse because it is so easy to try and decide my future on my timing. Reading this reminds me that God is in control and he will lead me to where I am to be.
So again I will say this is my Friday Favorite. I am loving everything this planner has to offer. You can certainly tell this company really pays attention to detail. I highly recommend this planner. Remember moms, Mother’s Day is right around the corner and they are still on sale. This could be a great gift for you.
