So about 6 months ago I shared a different kind of blog with you guys about one of my secret obsessions…old school planners 🙂 After years of using planners I decided to step it up to an Erin Condren Life Planner that so many people rave about all over the internet. It was an investment at about $75 and I had no idea if it would actually work for me.
My life has been a little crazy this past 6 months with working full time, teaching several college classes, planning a wedding…and oh yeah..raising a 3 year old! Suprisingly I have managed to keep it all together and I have to admit, a lot of it has to do my planner! I never misplace a “to do” list and rarely miss an appointment (it’s usually intentional..haha.) I also have most of my actions documented so I can always look back to see what we were doing on a certain day 🙂
Before I recieved my planner I read tons and tons of reviews that people had done and I started to notice an almost cult-like following for these planners. After I started using mine I started joining Facebook Groups and following people on Instagram who decorated their planners. I could resist so I grabbed some washi tape and started decorating mine too!Over the months decorating my planner has become a fun little hobby and I enjoy buying stickers and other items on Etsy!
One of the shops I came across is LifePlannerWashiTape, she has some of cutest stickers available! They are super functional, super high quality and work perfectly with the Erin Condren boxes.Another shop I came across is Pages N Memories. I love, love her checklist flags! They fit perfectly and allow me to create my own “to do” lists, shopping lists, whatever I want to check off.Lastly, Erin Condren Life Planners are coil bound and sometimes I want to add something I don’t want to lose like an envelope for my receipts, a sports schedule for Lily and my brainstorming sheets I use for this blog. Etsy shop, StickeBeans sells coil clips that are the highest quality in my opinion. They last for a really long time..well, actually I have yet to wear any out! They also have the only “decorated” clip I’ve seen! They make everything even cuter when sticking it into my planner.
