How I stay organized | Erin Condren Life Planner

Hello Lovelies, I am super excited to show you all my one of my favorite hobbies! I absolutely love planner supplies and always go crazy in Hobby Lobby or Micheals when it comes to all its bits and bobs. I’m very much an organized person when it comes to paying bills, lists otherwise I would lose my mind. I have learned that writing everything down helps with my anxiety and alleviates much of the stress of everyday life. Keep on reading to see how I organize my Erin Condren, and I’ve even been thinking of making this a series – of any updates I make within this planner. What do you guys think?

I custom made one specifically for me and my mom bought it for me for Christmas which came out so amazing! Erin Condren has a ton of different designs to choose from and even have wedding planners as well (Which, I will definitely will be getting!). I’m incredibly sentimental and I absolutely love photos so I incorporated all the moments within the past year and two photos of my parents when I was younger and placed them next to photos of me with them on my college graduation day. <3

I think it is incredible that you are able to customize the entire planner from top to bottom. I chose the color coil, the layout design and the cover along with the name design as well. You get to make your planner uniquely yours. While the customization is extra for some bits, it’s worth it – I promise!



Now for the bit of how I organized my planner and what my weeks will look like in the weeks to come. I’ve divide up my sections in to important info, to do lists (appointments, etc) and for my final section – blog ideas and blog info.


I need to really get my blog in order and I think the best way to do that is to keep track of posts that need to go up and go from there as well as any ideas that may come out of the blue when they come to me. I will also be putting our savings goal at the end of the month each month as well since we are trying to buy a home.

Since we are talking about how I use my planner ; I managed to take advantage of an amazing sale at Michaels and they were doing 50-60% off on all their planner accessories. So I picked up a TON of cute little sticker packs and they fit so nicely in this type of planner with the Vertical layout.

To say I got quite a bit would be an understatement ahah.. whoops. I also purchased a set of Staedtler fine-tip pens and they are… AMAZING. If you guys want a review on those I can definitely do that!

Here’s to a productive 2018 and focusing on goals!

Do you guys have any shop suggestions for amazing stickers and layouts for an Erin Condren planner? I would love all the suggestions you may have! <3

    I think I’m in love with your planner! This year I would try to stay more organized (last year I wasn’ so good, but I really really need to organize myself!) and your post highly motivated me!
