2019/2020 Deluxe Monthly Planner | Erin Condren

That is coming out very very soon. It is done tada, it’s a deluxe monthly planner. This will be launching on the site on June 4th, and here are just some details that are different about this year. So let me actually get you in the frame a little bit butter and then let me like its talk a little bit alright.

So the base price for a non metallic cover, which this one is a non metallic cover, is increasing. They used to be thirty eight dollars and then now they’re going to be forty dollars and then also the base price for metallic covers are from forty three they’re going from forty three dollars and then now there are $ 45 for a metallic cover. If you want the eight and a half by eleven, this is the standard 7 by 9 size, which I prefer, but that’s a $ 5 increase just to like.

Let you know if you want that the eight and a half by eleven, your page count is actually increasing this year from 194 pages, with 40 notes pages to 230 pages. Still with the 40 pages of notes in the back, you can also choose your own start month between july 2019, ending in december at 2020. So if you want it to start like in September, you can you know, there’s lots of variety. Mine starts in January 2020.

That’s just kind of how my brain works, so I am, you know, happy that that is how it starts online, and this is only going to be offered in a 12 month version and there is also an option to add dot, grid and productivity pages in the Back so that is kind of the gist of this. I just wanted to show you this. I know some of you are like Emily. This is like a very different cover for you. This is a PR cover so, like I didn’t get to choose my cover or my guts or anything so, but it’s still a lovely and lovely cover, but you can obviously you know, take it out and then put your own cover on it, which is something I Really love about this planner.

If you guys have readed my blog before I will leave em in the card. I think it’s up here. My money talk playlist, because I typically use this planner for all of my budgets. I will stick that up there, but yeah. I’m just kinda, I just want to like thumb through this with you guys. You can see the difference and I have the colorful kaleidoscope pattern. They are going to be having this in the neutral kaleidoscope as well so very similar to the life planners.

So you have your kind of year at a glance here, which I absolutely love this page, it’s always so nice and then you get these twelve boxes and if you guys haven’t seen my walkthrough of the coil bound Erin Condren planner, it’s very not similar to this. But it’s similar ish to this I’ll, put that up in a card for you guys as well, and then we have January 2020. That starts – and I’m loving this. This is one of the pages that I absolutely love for the life planner that just came out and they included it in the monthly deluxe and I’m really glad that they did because people that just use the monthly deluxe I feel like can really utilize this.

It’s just like blank right here, so you do have like the birthday monthly goals and then like two areas that don’t have anything on them. This would clearly be easy enough to. You know, put it another sticker over it. If you don’t want to track birthdays or monthly goals, and then you get into the month with the sidebar and then you also have the next month at a glance right over here, which is awesome and then just like previous year, you got one two three four Notes pages and this one kind of goes at this one, because I’m just looking at like you know, pink and pink so yeah, that’s the biggest difference.

I want to walk through side by side, but let’s look at the rest of this first, because I have my other. This is my 2019 planner over here. So I want to walk through it together, but that’s basically what the month looks like so yeah so, like I said, mine goes through December, so I wanted to get at the end of December and then we have 2021 at a glance which is great, especially if You use this for budgeting and you know certain things are coming up like you know, maybe some vacation or something like that, and then we’ve got a bunch of notes, page ages, which mine just has the additional sorry about the glare you guys.

The dog is like in the curtains um, so I have the additional notes pages of which I love. These are so nice and very, very useful, very, very useful and then in the back. I have two pages of little event stickers here. So those are my cute little event stickers and then um, sorry I’ll get out of the curtains. I’m sorry, you guys the way you’ll get out of the curtains. Okay, we’re better! Now! Sorry, if you guys didn’t see before anyway, these these are the event stickers.

Oh goodness, Doyle’s living his best life, clearly um, alright and then at the very end. You have your pocket and then this has the metallic on the cover and then on the cover when we’re trying to say on the flap and then this one also has the big pocket flap as well. In my pr1, I got this already attached. I don’t believe that this comes with the planner, but it’s just a really acute idea and I really like how the dual tip marker goes with the cover it’s kind of cute right.

Alright, so I want to walk through month by month or like page by page. Basically and show you what the biggest differences are this year between this one and then my old one, so let’s look through it together. Actually here, let’s do it like this no hold on look well, nope we’re going the wrong way, Emily we’re going the wrong way. Okay, well, it’s not big enough. Okay! Well, let’s just flip through things and then when things are kind of changing, then I’ll show it together.

So we just got like quote pages totally. Fine, we’ve got our tabbed page. This is all the same, just a different print and then again same, but just a little bit different, and then we’ve got the next page which same all right. So we start in to January, and then this is very different. Like I said, you know, this is just an extra page and then we have this page, which I think is going to be really great for a lot of people to utilize versus just going straight into the month.

And then, if we go to the next page here, the monthly is just it’s a little bit different, but it’s just because of the design. Then it’s a little bit different, but still the same idea and loving this in the corner. They also have it here. We go to this page which no you guys are seeing my budget, I mean so very similar to the next year and then let me just count the pages real quick. So I have one two three, four, okay, one, two, three, four okay, so it has the same amount of lined note pages between every single month.

You just get two extra pages in the beginning of the month, which is awesome so yeah. I mean it’s just a good way to track things I feel like and then in the back for notes pages feel like okay, so there were two sticker sheets in the back as well, and then this and all these dinky things – I don’t know if you guys – Can see this remember these dinky things drives me nuts, because you can’t really put anything in there.

I feel like everything just like falls out but yeah. I use mine for budgeting. As I have shown, i’ve actually torn a couple of pieces out of here too, and i’ve used them. They do have the perforated edge on this one. Let me see if they have it on these ones, yeah they have a little perforated edge on there. So I just don’t feel bad, especially when there’s like what is it 40 sheets back there? I don’t really feel bad when there’s so many sheets.

In the back like in my life planner, I feel like. Oh, I don’t want to take a sheet out of a life planner because there’s only like a couple of them, but in here you know, I don’t feel bad tearing out a sheet. If I’m you know doodling or just brain dumping or something under strap it out. So yeah that is kind of it. I want to know what you guys use your Erin, Condren monthly, deluxe planner for or maybe what you would use it for if you’ve never had one before like.

I said I use mine strictly for budgeting, but I know that there’s a lot of different ways that you can use it. I know people that actually use this as their just main planner and they don’t do weeklies, because it’s just you know too much detail for them and they just like the boxes and that’s just easier for them, which I totally understand. I’m also heard of people using this for like activity tracking, if you know like weight, loss or just trying to stay active or health things if you’ve got like health issues, or things like that that you want to track like daily.

Something for you know your physician or something so yeah I mean. I think this is just like a great at-a-glance planner and I love the coil. Oh before we go. Let’s look at the coil sizes because I know that’s always a question here know they’re the same: they are the same. I know it looks a little bit funny on camera, but they are the same. It’s funny because this this um thicker cover and back cover kind of makes it look funny, but yeah they’re the same same sizes last year, alright.

Well, that is going to be it for all of the new information for the deluxe monthly planner for 2019 to the 2020. If you all have any questions feel free to put them in the comments down below and remember these go on their website on June 4th. There are links below, for you guys so feel free to check that out and if you liked the article make sure to give it a thumbs up feel free to subscribe, and I will see y’all in the next article bye guys well folks, it’s time to kick It old school

2019/2020 Academic Planner | Erin Condren

I remember the academic planner back in the day when it was like bound like it wasn’t in a coil. Do you guys remember that anyway? I do. However, first things first, thank you so much the Erin Condren team for sending me this.

I really appreciate it and I want to share this with you and do a little flip through. So let’s talk about the Erin Condren planner, first of all, these retail for $ 37 and that’s without any upgrades. I believe that the coils are ten dollars additional for the different color coils. I am a fan. I got the Platinum coil so that one is actually included in there. Your calendar options it’s a 12 month planner, but you can choose August through July September, through August and then also January through December, just depending on how your school year works, or some people use the academic planner just like for their daily life as well.

You can also personalize your cover and do all of those things, and I believe that the only option for the insides is colorful. When I ordered mine, I didn’t have an option for colorful or neutral, so that could be a part of that so anyway, let’s flip her open and take a little peek. This is also a 7 by 9 planner. Here’s, my planner, I am currently using. So it’s the same, it’s the same and the coil size is exactly the same as this one.

This one, this one’s seen better days, cuz, it’s really full anyway. So this is the academic planner, oh yeah, I got August through July. I could not remember which one I ordered oopsie, there’s also a spot for your name school and then we’ve got 2009 or end of 2019 here and then 2020, and this has a little projects tab. So here’s your projects – oh, this – is really pretty well. I kind of like this.

I know a lot of people use this for work as well, especially if they have projects and things like that. I don’t work in an environment where I have projects I work on for a long time once they get to my desk, then I’m usually done with them with day. So I don’t have like long progressive projects, but if you’re like a project manager or someone that has ongoing projects throughout the year, this would actually be a really cool planner for you to have at work.

But anyway, this has a projects and exams or you could just do projects a description. It says class and then details. This could be just like the project name and then details, there’s deadlines, important date and then like a little completed, checkbox, which is also very satisfying. So there’s quite a few on here, so there’s three and three and then we’ve got some more pages and more pages. These are cool, it’d, be kind of cool just to have like this is just me thinking um.

It would be kind of cool to have just a planner or like a notebook that has just these pages in it, like just projects and exams, or just something like that. That would actually be really cool because y’all know if you’re in school you’ve got way more projects and exams in a year than this typically so actually be really cool anyway. So now we are in to the planner. So we’ve got our August tab here and then we have a notes page.

It’s lined with little like kind of rainbow color watercolor thing I don’t cool alright and then we’ve got August, which let me see where my planner is for 2020. Give me a second: I want to see what it looks like compared to this alright, so this is the planner I’m actually going to be using starting this upcoming July, which it might be July by the time you see this, I’m not really sure so, but I Want to go to the monthly page and see how different it looks or does it I don’t know so.

Here’s kind of the differences so yeah. This one is like very colorful and has like you know the colorful tabs and the you know the rounded corners and things like that, and then this one is just like straight corners and still has like over here. I put this, but it still has the color blocked area as well so cool. Alright, I just wanted to see the difference and see if there was you know, huge differences or not so yeah, but love that they have the upcoming month right there.

It’s always super helpful, all right and then we have july 2019, the very end, and then we have august. So we’ve got monday tuesday wednesday to do lists, and then things are kind of broken out a little bit, Thursday Friday and then Saturday Sunday. Our two little things so again this would be great for work if you work like a normal like Monday, through Friday, type of a job and then yeah. So these are the weekly pages and just for comparison, because I have this here and if you all are debating between you know a life planner or whatever I have the hourly, but this is you know this is the difference.

Basically, you know you just got more room. I think this one just has like more room to write in it, just because your Saturday and Sunday are so small. But again, if you don’t, you know, want to put academic stuff or work stuff on Saturdays and Sundays. I don’t know, but like I used to actually work like a retail job where I had Sundays and Tuesdays off, so I would probably if I was still in that job, which I’m clearly not.

I would maybe make this like my Sunday and Tuesday and then like re-name, the days or whatever to just fit my needs, but yeah cool, oh and then at the very end you get some notes pages, which is actually really great. So you can, you know, clearly write notes or anything else that you need. You know jot down or remember so then, we’ve got September and I like that it has like the little watercolor things over there.

I think that’s really cute. Maybe they did that for like the colorful version in here, because it is quite subtle, you know, and then you know just like their little rainbow thing again and then October. So all the months are the same and I don’t want to be super redundant and go through every single month, because that would be a boring article Emily. So, let’s go to the very back in July I like to always see if they have other things in the back, because sometimes they do and sometimes they don’t so, let’s go through July and see what’s going on back here.

Okay, so we have them notes pages like normal and then okay and then it says, arriving at one goal is the start of another awesome, and then this has a bunch of the Erin Condren stickers, which are great. I I always forget that they’re in the back um, there’s ones that say exam midterm test quiz read paper: do a study group study no class vacation and then we got a couple blank ones too, which is really nice.

So that is that, and then there is my back cover so yeah. That is it for the article. I hope you guys enjoyed it. This is the academic planner for 2019 2020 from Erin Condren.

2019/2020 Planner Choice | Erin Condren

If you guys have been following me on social media or you’ve, seen my past couple of articles about this, I will leave a link in the cards as we kind of go along. This was the first planner that I got in PR and I got to pick everything out which was fabulous, but then I went to go wild, oh by the way.

This is the colorful version of the hourly layout in the gold coil July through June. Okay, so that being said, I went to go wild, which was fabulous by the way and I was invited to an Erin Condren party and there was erin condren binders out, even in just like the general admission areas, and I got to looking at the binder and I was like oh, I need that too, and the color way for this I feel like is so pretty so it was torn.

So then, on launch day, I ordered this I’ll leave the article up in a cart. If you want to look at this a little bit more in detail, so I got this and I’m like. I love this too. What am I going to do so? I thought about it for awhile and I really thought about, like my planning style, like what I like and if you guys know anything about me. I am a very like neutral person in my normal daily life, but in my planner I feel like I’m a colorful person, so I decided on the colorful.

However, I didn’t decide on this one. I was a little sneaky and ordered something else. So I got this: this is the Navy binder. I wanted to see the Navy – and this is the gray binder, which I’ll show you in a second and the colorful our Lee is inside of here. So I think that this is. This is the one guys. This is the one, so let me show you what’s inside and how I set this up so hold on. Let me move this for just a second, so this planner and this planner are going to go to some friends.

I change the cover on this because I wanted to use the cover in my binder and I’ll explain why in just a moment, so this is going to be given to a friend and then this one here I started moving into this just be like completely honest And my contacts page in here is gone because I started playing with it and I’m like oh gosh. What’s in great so yeah, the contacts page has gone in here, but I will still give this a to a planner friend that I know will absolutely love it.

I want to talk about the binder for just a quick second, this really bothers me. I feel like you have to like hold everything for it to like properly closed. If that makes sense like it doesn’t I don’t know it closes, don’t get me wrong, but I feel like if you don’t kind of like push everything to the middle of the binder clip or whatever you want to call it. It just kind of hangs out hold up. Let me let me explain it a little bit more.

So if I didn’t help it, let’s move this. It would go like this. Do you see it? I’m saying like all that’s right there, okay anyway, so this needs a little like Oh needs a little help, and then this one’s good, alright. So that was the gray one which I think is beautiful as well, but I went with the Navy. I thought I wanted to see what the Navy look like and then, if I didn’t like the Navy, I could just swap the binders, but this is the Navy.

It’s gorgeous. You guys know that I don’t really like personalization, so I didn’t do that plus. I wasn’t sure if I was going to keep this. This also has whoops the gold hardware as well, which is like my favorite, and then I put these big erin condren pockets on either side of the binder. So I’m going to be keeping these in here. That’s for coffee, brick, planner and they are like little transparent, dots and I’ll.

Show you how I use those in just a moment, but I’m going to keep those are right there and then I have another one right here and you get a packet too, and the Erin Condren website will be linked below for you guys. This is one of bookmarks and I used this to cut washi mainly, and then I took my old cover off of my coil bound planner and put it in here, and the reason I did that is because of that issue I was just talking about so I Have the back cover in here as well, so I feel like when I’m ready to close this up.

I can just easily go like this and I feel like I’m not going to tear the pages if that makes sense like if there’s something like kind of hard behind it. So that’s how I am going to use that so anyway yeah. So this is what I’m going to use. I was actually talking to a co-worker of mine recently because they wanted me to bring in my planner, because some of them have decided to become Erin Condren fans as well, so she was like wow.

This is so colorful. I’m like yeah, I know she’s like I would have just never thought that you would be a really colorful person, and I said you know the only place that I’m colorful in my life is inside of my planner and that’s kind of like what threw me over The edge of like okay, I need a colorful planner, there’s just no way around it. This is very similar from last year. I track a few different things, and all of these stickers are from coffee, brick.

Planner. There is a link down below, as well as a coupon code, if you all are interested for 20 % off, but I track my cycle, which is why I have these over here because clearly I don’t know when that’s going to be happening and then I have All my paydays and then I have work holidays in here too. If I decide to track something else, I’ll put it up here with a key and then I have a bunch of different colors.

She has a ton of different colors in these little transparent dots. So anyway, this goes from july 2019 through a December 2020, and then here I’m not sure what I’m going to do last year. I ended up doing like home projects, but I’m not sure what I want to do this year, so we’re just going to like leave it for now and let it marinate you know and then July July is clearly not here. Yet I’m still in the end of May, when I’m filming this so for July, I really don’t have anything major going on.

I did decide to open up my little package of long sticky notes and put one on every single month. So if there’s like birthdays or special events that I need to remember or something like that, I have them, you know a little place to write them down. I did put in my garbage and then I do have a hair appointment on Wednesday. That day on the 24th so anyway, that is that that’s all I know what’s going on, but I absolutely love this.

I think this is so pretty. I kind of feel like with the neutral I’d kind of get sick of it. After a while, then, I feel like for me there’s more functionality in the colorful, even though I know some people are very anti. This, like color block here, but I don’t really mind it also something I decided to do, which I hope you can see on camera. It’s so hard cuz. This like viewfinder, is like teeny, tiny small.

Over here I decided to take some Christian designs, transparent stickers and put in like paydays into the current month that it shows down here. So this is July and then I have to get paid July 5th and July 19. So it’s just something to track and then also if I want to track something else or if I know if someone’s going on, I could do that as well. But I love this little thing down in the corner.

I love that change. I think that’s so nice and then I’ve got that little guy right there and then in to auto stand. Then again I did trash and stuff, but let’s go to the back and take a little gander at what’s in there, and then we have our notes pages. Oh something I should say I did not do. Is let’s see here. I put everything in here. However, not everything so I put everything in here through January.

Sorry, I’m kind of like all over the board today. So I put all my weeks up until January in here and then once February hits then I just put in the month and then, like you know, this is the back of the month and then I pushed it into the next month. So I have all of my other pieces of paper upstairs in my office, so when these months start to happen, can put them in here. I just didn’t want the binder to be totally full.

I wanted some extra room in here and not make it like. So bulky and I do have the room to store – you know the extra pages and whatnot. So that’s what I did for February through December of 2020. So but I do have you know my months out there, so I can always jot things down anyway. Now we’re into the notes section, and so we’ve got a few things that I actually did a little bit of planning before I filmed this article because I felt like if I did this on camera, it would be like hours long and I’m just like not all About that life anyway, and of course I did it at like mmm like 10:30 last night and there’s like no lighting at that point in my home, so anyway, I decided to do something really similar like I did last year, and I actually have it sitting right Off camera here, so this is my one from the previous year and then I put in like July through June, and these are just like tasks so like 2019, 2020 monthly tracking cute little house sticker there from coffee break planner.

And then I got these from Christian designs and then this washi is actually from Christian designs, but it’s available at Michael’s, only so very fun. So these are all the things that I want to achieve in the next year or so so I just want to like you know, have the task done so for me. Obviously yours is going to be a little bit different and if you have different categories like, let me know in the comments down below, maybe need to add some.

So anyway, I have a budget donations. I tend to donate something every single month or a bag of things clean out the fridge clean out the freezer clean out the pantry. That’s done sometimes weekly, but you know it’s something that I need to do at least once a month. My air filter. I don’t need to change it every single month, but it’s nice to see when I’m doing it. I think it’s about like every three months.

My color gun service is not every month, but it’s nice to see when the last time was checking smoke detectors. My bedding and blankets, organizing my files changing out my toothbrush head clean out the car, a car oil change, face, mask I’m trying to get better at that, like the whole self care thing, I don’t know it’s just like very difficult for me and I need to Just like make the time – I don’t know if you guys struggle with that too, and I’m like one to talk like I don’t have kids and I have a very like subdued life, but still it just sometimes it’s just difficult to make the time and then no Plastic bags: that’s like a big thing that I am going to try to start well, I’m actually already starting it, but I’m going to try to not use any plastic bags in the next year.

I have so many reusable bags. Those Erin Condren ones are just amazing and I love them, and I have so many of them in my car ready to go, and you know you pop into like CVS or Walgreens or the gas station or whatever, and I’m like. Why do I have this plastic bag? I should just always have a reusable bag in my bag. So that’s what I’ve been doing. It’s been working out really well and if I’m clearly like going to the grocery store I’ll put like five or six of them in my bag and if I don’t use them all great, but I would rather over pack then under pack, because they’re so lightweight anyways.

So I’m that’s like a goal of mine and I don’t know if it’s weird but that’s like something I want to do in the next year or so so anyway. Um there is my little dot grid pages and then I haven’t filled out my contacts yet because I didn’t want to be all creepy and stuff Here. I am going to put in all of my house stuff, so the name of the heating and air company. That I view is the name of the electrician.

I’ve been using my HOA contact, my mortgage company, like any like service related thing like culligan. They come over and do service in my home and, like anything house related I’d like to keep it in here, so I think that will be good and then oh over here I put in so this is January 20 January of 21 wow, that’s weird to say Through December of 21 – and I put in all of the pay days as well with those same stickers from Christian designs, those transparent circles – and then here are the sticker sheets, which I decided to put in the back here.

I might end up taking these out because a lot of times, if you guys have seen like any of my other planner articles a lot of times. I kind of forget that they’re back here and then I don’t end up using them. But if they’re in here, which is like my little Erin Condren sticker organizer, then I know that they’re here, so I might just end up putting these in here. Eventually, these are just all loose sticker sheets from Erin Condren that I love so anyway.

They’re in here for now, like I said I might, I might move them – I don’t know so yeah and then we’ve got these ones too. These are so nice very underrated, but very nice, and then I have my back cover to the coil planner, which I love that too, and then here there is that big pocket again, so you can slip something in there. I was actually going to use this. I decided I was going to put this hold on and here’s stop talking so these little flaps kind of replaced this and I already bought it, but I think I’m going to give that to someone that is going to take one of those planners.

What I did last you, which I absolutely loved, is when I was tracking this for like my cycle and stuff, I put this in here and had this little flap here and had this inside and it worked out great, but the more I thought about it. I was like you know I kind of like more streamlined like that. So anyway, this is going to go to the friend, so this kind of replaced that, but I mean everyone, just kind of needs to do what works for them.
