Favorite Things Friday

My new favorite thing? My Erin Condren life planner, of course!

(photo courtesy of iphone pics were just not doing the job)

I had been eying it since Kelly's Korner mentioned it, and I had even put it on my Amazon birthday list. Little did I know that my super awesome SIL, Jocelyn, was gifting it to me for Christmas. To say I was excited was putting it lightly. I mean, I squealed when I opened it up. And I had a moment. It was great.

Anyways, it is the super gangster awesome version of any planner you've ever had. As mucatom a tech-savvy family we Panter's like to be (right), I have to write everything down. I have two or three apps that are for planning/ organizational purposes, but they just weren't doing it for me. My Life Planner has each day broken down into three parts--Morning, Day, and Night. Each section has plenty of writing space, and there are even goal and to do list sections for each week. As if that wasn't good enough, there are notes spaces for each month, cute little stickers to use to color code and label special dates (i.e. birthdays, date nights), as well as pockets to store things like church bulletins and sale fliers.

It is amazing!

Have I mentioned you can personalize your planner? Not with just a favorite design--I'm talking family photo on the front, people. The original price is a little steep for a planner, but it seems like there is always some type of coupon code out for items on the Erin Condren website.

Have you ever used a life planner before? What are you thoughts?

I'm loving mine so far, and I highly recommend it!

Love, KP


  1. So glad you are enjoying it! I love mine, and now I don't know how I ever functioned without it!

  2. Oh, me *either*!! Yay for us!! :)

  3. Ive loved these since I first saw them... But, I'm a creature of habit & love that I can join my wallet & my planner into one with my ever-trusty, go-to for 5+ years Franklin Covey day planner system. Although, I'm obsessed with all the pretty bright colors! Glad it's working for you, hey, whatever works!

    1. I totally feel ya--I lusted a little after the Franklin Covey Planners. They are so classic. I think I may have had one on my Christmas list last year, but yes, the bright patterns and colors with drew me in! :)
