Yep! You are seeing my post correctly. I have switched back to an Erin Condren life planner. I was so excited back in December about my new Filofax and spent an entire week on the topic. Then, January hit and I started using it… And, it didn’t work out like I had hoped.
In the planner world, there is a thing called “planner peace” where you are extremely happy and content with the planner that you have chosen and how it is set up. There isn’t a need to try other types and systems. You love the planner that you have and can’t imagine using anything else.
Well, I did not experience “planner peace” with the Filofax. I tried my hardest to love it, but we simply were not a good match. I will go into much more detail on my “Why I Switched back to an Erin Condren Life Planner” post next week.
But, until then, I wanted to share my new planner. And, once again, I am loving it! I have tried to switch from an Erin Condren life planner for the past 2 years and keep veering back to it. That should tell me something.
The packaging that Erin Condren uses is amazing. It is colorful and immediately puts a smile on my face. You know something fun awaits in one of their boxes.
Look at that purple tissue paper. LOVE!!! And, the extra sets of stickers they threw in with my order.
Drum roll, please…
This time around, I decided to put my blog’s name on my planner since it is the main reason I use it.
I love the polka dots, the colors, and basically everything. It reminds me of all of my Coton Colors Happy Everything decor, which makes me happy.
One amazing adjustment that Erin Condren made since my last planner is the tabs. Last time, the tabs were just made of thick paper. But, this time, they are aminated too, which will ensure they will last all year long. Thumbs up from me!
And, I love the “forget me not” perpetual calendar and contacts. I have a hard time remembering some birthdays and anniversaries. Now, I will write them all in this handy calendar. No more forgetting on my part.
Once again, the quotes are amazing and did not disappoint…
And, there are many sheets of extra lined paper in the back for notes or lists.
This folder is double-sided and will be awesome to keep important information or planner goodies.
And, so will the zippered pocket in the back.
When I purchased this planner, they were having a special. If you purchased the life planner, you got the bundle-life planner favorites for FREE. I will give y’all a glimpse inside the monthly calendar tomorrow and share how I am using it.
So, what is your favorite planner? I would love to hear all about it.
