Erin Condren Life Planner: Review and Giveaway

When it comes to being organized and slightly obsessed with my calendar, a planner is a must have for a girl like me. Check out my Erin Condren Life Planner review and be sure to enter the giveaway for a $50 Erin Condren Gift Code! 

For months, I've been drooling over the Erin Condren Life Planner. These planners seemed like so much more than a planner and that intrigued me. Not only did I want it for everyday life, but I also wanted a planner that I could use to keep track of my running as fall marathon training will be starting soon. 

I was lucky enough to have the fabulous ladies at Erin Condren hook me up with a life planner. I think I spent days on the website trying to narrow down which design I wanted. There are so many choices from the classics to the fun and funky! I was beyond excited when I received it. 
This planner is the real deal. Every single detail of these planners was thought out and has a purpose. I'm a lover of all things chevron, so I chose the zig-zag pattern. It came out fabulous! 
The first thing I noticed was how much room there is to write in each section. I love not being confined to one little box. Every imaginable event that you would want to keep track of has a place. There's a calendar to write down birthdays and anniversaries. 
The two-page monthly calendar spread is fabulous. Major holidays are preprinted and each month has an inspirational quote. Each month is separated with colored laminated tabs. 
The month at a glance is awesome, but there's also a weekly calendar that's broken down into morning, day, and night with sections for writing down meals, exercises, goals, and lists. All the attention to detail makes this a winner! 

After the calendar section of the planner, there are 240 stickers to showcase important events or reminders in your planner. They come with both pre-printed and blank stickers. I want to put them everywhere on the calendar! A cute ruler accompanies the planner too! 
If you're like me, I always have "stuff" in my planner. You know....notes, receipts, and a gazillion more pieces of paper. With the Life Planner, you have options for these "things." You can put them in one of two "keep it together" folders or put them in the zip lock pouch (this pouch comes loaded with gift labels and cards). I also got the pen/pencil holder that sticks to any page in the planner. I love that my pencil is ready to write at any moment! 
This planner more than met my expectations. Is it pricey? Yes. But it's worth it. If you're all about being organized and you love the purpose of a planner, than you have to check out Erin Condren's Life Planner. They are perfect for everyday life on the go! 

So now it's all about you! Enter below for a chance to win a $50 Gift Code towards your Erin Condren order. Good luck!
