Plan Without Me | April – May | Erin Condren Life Planner

I have not a film to plan with me in a really long time, because I’ve been noticing that when I get home from work I need to just like decompress and I’ve really been just planning after I get home and kind of doing it throughout the weeks. I don’t really forget anything so yeah, I just haven’t done anything on camera, but I wanted to show you guys some of my weeks for the last about month or so before I get started if you’re new, to my blog.

This is what I use. This is an Erin Condren and a life planner in the luxe cover. I know that I just filmed a article sharing the regular life planner. Where is it it’s over here hold on? Let me show you so this is the new coiled life planner. I will throw that article up in a cart for y’all, and then I also because I can’t make up my mind got a neutral binder as well, and I will also throw that up in a card for you guys if you’re interested, but that’s what’s currently on The website, I’m not sure if they have Lux covers this year.

I really haven’t looked too hard at the website, but anyway, this is what I have been using for 2019. So it’s my on-the-go life planner and I use the hourly layout. I’ve been a fan of the hourly layout ever since it came out, and I don’t know I don’t know if I’ll ever go to a different layout – maybe maybe not I don’t know, but anyway, I just wanted to kind of share with you some of my layouts. This is probably going to be like a really short article.

I don’t know so anyway. This is April 1st through April 7th, and you know just have basic week – didn’t really do much after work clearly, and then I think I put some of these on my Instagram. I’m not sure my Instagram is down below if you guys want to check it out and then we’ve got April 8th it’s through April 14th and yeah. I did a lot of like stuff for my brother week. I remember that or that weekend I should say yeah and then on April what was the April first yeah these two days April, 1st in April 2nd.

We had like a really bad snowstorm, so yay good thing. I can like work from home if possible, all right and then moving along. We have Monday April 15 through a Sunday April, 21st and yeah. I didn’t really do much. I had some training to deal with and I had a co-worker’s birthday on that Friday. So I stayed late to decorate and then you know who went off and did things wasn’t feeling so hot on the 20th, and so I slept so that’s great and then I planned on the 21st and then this I did nothing.

This is how some of the week’s look you guys like, I feel like it’s important for people to know that are like on Instagram or YouTube, or just any social media platform that, like your weeks, sometimes you just don’t do them you just don’t do it because You just don’t have time all right. You know I I’m trying to get away from saying you just don’t have time to you’re, just not making time for it and that’s like more truthful for me in my life than it is for anything else, and then the next one I’m going to show you Is a little aggressive, so here we go um.

This is my go wild week and there’s a ton of different stickers. I did work Monday and Tuesday. My mom came in from Florida. She was here to read the little Doyle dog while I was out plus she has her own home here and wanted to get that ready for her season so anyways. I have a lot of different things on here. There wasn’t this many things to begin with, because there was a few things I had to put in.

Like I don’t know other other stuff, I didn’t really know about. Plus you get so much swag at go wild and I will leave my go wild playlist up in a card for you guys, if you’re interested in reading some of that, but for all the things that are like kind of go wild related. I like to put those stickers on my go wild week, so this is my only like super, like kind of no white space planning a little bit, I mean it is here cuz I worked but but yeah.

So I don’t know it’s just cute and fun and why not – and I still don’t know the next year’s location – I’ve had so many questions about that. Don’t know they didn’t announce it this year. So I’m like chomping at the bit to know when it’s going to be and where it’s going to be. So where is usually the question that gets answered first and then when comes later, but maybe they’ll announce it all at once.

I mean who the heck knows. All right and then so we have May 6 through the 12th and this week sucked. So so I got back from go wild on this Sunday and then this Monday. I took off because I just knew that I wanted to spend some time with my mom and I had the day off and just to kind of like unpack and laundry and just get kind of my life back together. And then I went to work on Tuesday, which was awesome because it was our Taco Tuesday, so we did like a big potluck which is really really fun and then Wednesday morning I woke up and I was like death.

I was so incredibly sick turns out. I had the flu and that just really sucked and then Thursday morning, at 4:00 a.M. I had to take my mom to the airport, which was so much fun when I’m still sick and thankfully she was in the car with me to tell me where the heck to go, because I was just like so not. I don’t know alive so anyway. After that, I did stop in to work because it from the airport back to my home.

Work was on the way, so I just did a couple of things like super early in the morning. I think it was there like 5:15 or something I just worked for like an hour. I had to just get some paperwork filled out and do all that good stuff, and then I went back home and I went to bed. Oh, I actually went to the grocery store cuz. I needed more cold medicine and they’re open 24 hours in my area, so that was that was good and then Friday I was still super super sick yeah it just it just sucked so anyway, and then I mean I did a little planning.

I did some laundry. I organized my swag and then I love this little quote. It says it back the up, sprinkle tips today. It’s not that today, that’s kind of how I felt like the entire week and then I slept basically all day on Sunday Mother’s Day. I did call my mom and talk to her a little bit but yeah just not great, and then this is actually this week. So this is Monday May 13 through Sunday May 9.

I’m right here and yes, I did go to work on Monday and I think I pushed it a little too hard. So I did work a little bit on Tuesday and then I was working from home actually and then I just emailed my boss and one of my co-workers on my team and I’m like. I need to go home well or not. Go home but like go to sleep because I was already home, so I worked from home a little bit and yeah basically slept all day, and then I got my EC order that day, which was great, but I didn’t really do anything with it.

Anyways so, and then Wednesday was another sick day. Unfortunately, I got a simply gilded delivery, which was awesome, and I did a little bit of organizing in my closet, which was good, but you know it’s like it was the like all this sick time. It’s like takes so long to do like the most mundane things like taking a shower. You know normally takes like 5-10 minutes, not even and it’s like you’re in there for like 25 minutes, because it’s just like you’re moving like a sloth like I’m moving so slow.

But, yes, everything takes a lot longer anyway Thursday. I went to work. It wasn’t great, but I went anyway and it was fine and then on Friday went to work and that was good. I went to Trader Joe’s and KUB. I did a little face mask which was awesome and then yesterday was definitely a lazy day, and I love this and says if it requires the pants. It’s not happening. Basically, that’s like my entire weekend.

This weekend I got the laundry done. I updated some stuff in PayPal and I love this just go the to sleep because I had to take a nap and then I planned a little bit last night. I’m filming I need to edit a little bit and then I’m going to do some meal prep for the next week and then I do have a little bit on this week. So far, so I made this, I didn’t make this sticker. I should be more clear, but it was in one of those Erin Condren books and then I put the little the time is now on there.

I thought that was really cute. My co-workers still on vacation for these two days and then y’all Sunday May 26 is the favorite Mama’s birthday. So she is turning 70 and I won’t see her. Unfortunately, but then I will see her the following week, because her and my dad are going to be driving from Florida to Minnesota next, the the next week after this so yeah I’ll, give her a call. I know she’s got a couple of things going on that day, but yeah the favorite Mama’s going to be the big 700, but anyway, that is my week I or my weeks.

I wanted to just kind of share this with you guys. I know I haven’t been really good about, like taking pictures and stuff like that, which I totally should be, but I’m not, I think I need to just I don’t know, share some photos of this stuff. I don’t think I have so. I think I think it’s time to share some pics of this on the internet and tag who I can remember um. I will leave a link or not like not a link, but several links down below as to some of the sticker and washi shops that I have been using and loving in the previous spreads that I just showed you.

So I hope you guys go and check out some of those links. Also, there is a link down below actually there’s two links down below for the Erin Condren website.

Life & Apples Wellness Planner | First Impressions

This is the undated Life and apples, the wellness planner. It’s a daily motivational journal for healthy living and it says active life, balanced eating and happiness. This is something that is available on Amazon. I will leave a link below for you guys.

I am currently looking on my Amazon and it is retailing for $ 24.97. I just wanted to let you all know that and then there’s some information on the back as well. So it says the wellness planner, a daily planner and journal for staying healthy, motivated and inspired. It helps you focus on your diet and fitness goals, eat healthy and plan meals, lead an active lifestyle and stay fit, build and maintain positive habits, feel accomplished and happier, and then down here it has 240 pages, it’s a 90 day layout or it’s a 90 day Daily layout, I should say: there’s meal planning, a food journal, gratitude, fitness schedule, goals, weekly review, a habit, tracker and inspirational quotes, so their website is life and apples.

Calm, but, like I said you can get it on Amazon as well. First things: first, there is this elastic band closure, which I do like for these kind of more like softer planners, and let’s pull this guy off here all right here we go. Let’s take take it off. Oh it’s naked now so anyway, on the front, it is like a nice kind of a know like a faux leather and it’s going to be kind of hard to see, but maybe you can see it, but there is like a little embossed Apple on the front.

The spine is just like a softer leather as well, and then the back is just plain but embossed on the bottom. It says life and apples with a little apple on that as well. There is a little pen loop, which is really nice. So, let’s open this bad boy up and it does feel nice. It’s not like a gritty feeling. It’s like a very smooth feeling, even though there’s definitely like you know some. It looks like there’s texture to it, but there’s not, but I don’t know I don’t know.

I don’t mind it so anyway, there’s a little card in there that says, download your free, healthy living, ebooks and printables at life and apples, calm, a /pages, a slash going to sand. It looks like you can sign up to get a 10 % off coupon on your next order. If you sign up there, that’s cool alright, so first impression of opening it. I hadn’t opened it yet. The paper feels nice. It feels thick, but it’s like the front page, so it might feel a little different.

So in the front it just says life and apples, the wellness planner undated, alright. So oh, this is like stitch bound. Oh that’s cool! Alright, so it has different sections. So section 1 is mind, set concepts and guidelines how to use this planner a self-fulfilling promise. Section 2 is a daily planner and weekly project progress. I can’t talk today here: goals daily planner wellness, no daily wellness planner.

I told you guys. I can’t talk today. Weekly progress review and then section 3 is your progress and inspiration, a review, exciting things ahead and notes cool alright. So here is just some information on mindset. I’m not going to read this whole thing because I want to get through this a little faster for you guys, so you can kind of see the inside of this a little bit. So I think it’s just like about talking about what this planner is.

All about is what it kind of looks like of like how to set a short-term goal daily motivation. Things like that, so yeah, oh and then there’s like a little thing of like how to use this planner cool. So it talks about like gratitude affirmation active day. Today’s meal planning a wellness summary and all that good stuff. Alright, so, oh you have to make a promise to yourself. Apparently, when you have this planner all right cool.

Well, let’s make a promise y’all, so the promise to myself the day and date. I will use this wellness planner to create a lasting positive change in my health and wellness, and then you know why basically, but why you want to change it and then you’re prepared to change and commit and then sign it, alright. Okay, this has a lot of structure to it. So if you guys know me in any of my planner styles, I really don’t like a lot of structure, but I think this would be great for somebody that likes a lot of structure, especially if they’re trying to get motivated with meal planning meal.

Prepping being active things like that, so I mean I haven’t looked through the rest of it, but I can just already kind of tell that it’s going to be a lot of structure. So anyway, you got my goals. So then you can put in a bunch of goals, so your goal and you want to achieve them by and then the action steps and there’s three lines with little faint checkboxes. And it looks like there’s five on this page and then now we are into the daily planner okay.

So it’s one day on two pages, so you have the day end date, which it’s undated. So you can start this at any time. You write what you’re grateful for your daily affirmation your active day. It says, exercise workouts and opportunities to keep active today, and it’s got seven different lines with checks and then notes. It says today’s priorities to do special events, etc, and seven category or seven lines as well with little checks.

So I mean clearly you would use this for like food and activity tracking. But if you had like two dues like hey, I need to run to the store. I need to go grocery shopping or I need to like pick up the dry-cleaning like you could put that in here. It looks like and then down at the bottom. It says Universal wellness elements, are you getting enough question mark and it says: Erin, sunlight, water and nutrients, joy and fun, and sleep sleep is something that I definitely struggle with.

I don’t know if you guys struggle with it out there, but I definitely struggle with sleep water. I don’t struggle with that at all. Alright, so over into the right hand, side over here it says today’s meal plan and then it has breakfast and some lines. Lunch dinner and snacks, so you can either plan that ahead or you can even just write it in as it happens, this is small enough that it would definitely fit and I think, most people’s purses.

Let me see if I can find the size on the interwebs here all right, so this is five and a half inches by eight inches. So yeah I mean you could definitely throw this in your bag or your work bag or keep it on your desk at work or just keep it at home too. I mean it’s definitely small enough where it could suit those needs, and it says on the scale of one to five. How was today and how well did you follow the plan and it’s one through five and it just says what could be improved tomorrow? Then it’s got like a little quote from George Eliot and says the strongest principle of growth lies in the human choice.

Isn’t that the truth? Gosh, it’s getting it’s getting deep on the FDA Channel today, all right and so day and date all over again – and I believe hmm, let’s see here all right, so you’ve got a whole week and then you have a weekly review. So you have your day and date, success and wins. Oh and all the days are the same like the day and date and then like your today’s meal plan. All of those are the same throughout the seven days.

So your weekly review, you put the day and the date successes and wins, and so celebrate your wins. What were some of the motivating moments, people and things that helped you have a healthier week and then you have three lines to write about that and it says: needs improvement. How can you make next week a healthier one, any pitfalls to avoid and it’s got three lines? The next section is insight and lessons.

What have you learned about yourself this week and three more lines and then over here is the weekly progress tracking and it says, track your daily bi-weekly and weekly healthy habits. So it’s got three sections here and then Monday through Sunday, so you can either check that off or you know, if there’s a certain amount of ounces of water or something like that, you could do that as well and then over here it says, track your progress Towards your goals, use parameters like weight, number of weekly, workouts, new habits, etc, and it says, parameter this week.

My goal that’d be nice. If you’re trying to fluctuate your weight or something like that and then weekly notes, it’s got a bunch of lines and some checkboxes as well all right. So then, we’re back into the week again all right, and then you got another weekly, okay, let’s kind of see what else is going on. I kind of like that. This is stitch because it like lays like it lays flat. Like I don’t know, if you guys can see that, but it does lay flat it’s hard to see because I like tipping it up, but it does lay flat which is kind of nice.

It does have these as well these little ribbons Wow words are hard today. So you could ideally have one of them for your day and then one of them for your week, especially if you’re going to do one of those like weekly habit, trackers or their parameters or something so yeah. But let me find, if there’s anything else going on in this planet, that just might be it I’m not really sure. So, let’s take a peek here and then I’ll talk about paper quality in just a moment.

Okay looks like that’s all the same. Oh, oh there’s different pages hold on hold on hold on okay, so in the back okay. So this is, after all, of the 90 days, so in the back, it has review Congrats on your commitment to a healthier life, write down the accomplishments that you’re most proud of in detail. What you need to continue and improve on your journey to wellness. It says I accomplished and says: look back at your goals and notice the progress you’ve made, what are your big list accomplishments and you can write them down and says I’m committed and then exciting things the head.

Oh and then you’ve got a bunch of notes. Pages. Very cool, alright, so we’ve got 3 1 or 1 2 3 4 line notes pages and then you’ve got 1, 2, 3 3 normal pages that are blank. And then this one’s like more of a Oh 5 normal pages and then this one’s one more like a it’s, not cardstock, but it’s like thick, oh and then in the back, there’s a little pocket. So you can put you know like a something in there.

Some secrets or something so yeah, so this is the planner yeah. So the paper/quality feels pretty nice. It is a little thinner than like the Erin Condren. If you guys readed my regular planning stuff, I use an Erin Condren, it’s a little bit thinner than that, and I can tell by the ink saturation underneath as well. I don’t have time to do a pen test today, I’m kind of in the middle of doing a whole bunch of things in my home right now.

So I don’t have time to do that today, but I feel like any like regular, like ballpoint, not ballpoint, but yeah a ballpoint pen or like a gel pen would probably be really nice with this. Like I said before, there is a ton of structure with this planner like a lattice structure with this planner. So if that’s something that you’re really seeking, I think that this might be a really good. I for you, if you really want to get motivated with your food, and your fitness and tracking things like this might be a good one for you.

I know that some people have a real trouble with planners that don’t have any structure at all. I kind of thrive on minimal structure, which is probably why I’ve never gotten into bullet journaling, because there’s like no structure with that. So I do like my Erin Condren hourly, because it just gives me hours and I can put in what I want to put in. That’s like great for me, but any more structure than that.

I don’t like so this isn’t something that I would definitely use. However, I can see the value in it for sure, especially if you’re someone that just needs to have a question posed and then write it in so like having a category to say, hey. I am grateful for this, and these are my notes – and this is my lunch plan like that – I can totally understand how that works really well for some people, so I think the planner is pretty cool.

I actually really like the size of it just for portability, because if I were to use it, I would want to take this on the go and grab my pen and take it. You know to the office or take it to visit friends or whatever and like really keep track of stuff, because if that’s what this planner is all about with tracking things, it’s just something that I would definitely want to be portable, which it is it’s quite light.

As well, it’s really nice, it’s not bulky, it’s very thin, so I do like that that it would fit in in most purses. I would say again if you are interested in this planner at all feel free to check out the links down below. If you all have any questions about, anything else feel free to leave them in the comments below and if you guys want me to review any other planners out there in the world. Also, let me know in the comments down below you guys have sent me some great ideas and I’ve been trying to get as many of those planner reviews and first impressions on my blog as fast as possible.

So anyway, that’s going to be it for me today. Thank you guys so much for hanging out with me for a little part of your day. If you liked the article make sure to give it a thumbs up, if you like this type of content and want to see more 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 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. There is a link down below for you guys if anyone is interested in checking it out if you’ve never purchased anything from Erin Condren there’s a special link for you that will give you $ 10 off of your first purchase.

This is the pack of stickers that it comes with we’re going to get into this in just a little bit, because I believe that this goes with this, so I believe that you can. You should be able to personalize this. I asked for it with no personalization, because clearly I don’t have a kid, but I will be gifting this to someone in my life. This is a really cool one that just has some planets and has some silver foiling, and it says my dreams are out of this world very cool before we move on.

Let’s look at this next to a regular, Erin, Condren life planner. I have my new one sitting right over here. The size is the same, but I want to show you guys the coil difference so clearly, there is quite a bit of difference in the coil, not as many pages, but still the same 7 by 9 size. So yeah, alright!

I want to read nice, okay and then the very front. This is like a drawing page and in the very front of the first month it says be kind, and I am kind two and then three different blank boxes and then we’ve got it. Oh, create your own cover design, your own planner cover in this space. Above all, right, I think this is where these kind of come in, so let’s open up this sticker pack get with it. I know I’m going to get questions as of right now I don’t know what the price is on this so, like I said when this article goes up, it will be live on the Erin.

Condren websites just go click on it and then all the pricing will be there. I’m sorry, I don’t know the price just yet. So this is the one for January. So, like you could put all of these in here or whatever, and this I don’t want to do this because I feel like whoever I give it to they might want to start it in a different month so anyway, but this little January, like fits perfectly over Here on this tab, okay and then this month it says morning routine evening, your own teen and then, if you have any birthdays this month and then it says, place monthly sticker here.

So you put your January right here and then you put in all your date. Dots wherever they go and then you’ll have like today is New Year’s Day. Today is Martin Luther King Day and then today is today is and it’s blank some happy birthdays and some blank ones, and then it has like important and then a bunch of decorative stickers right there and then over on this side. It has monthly goals, and then it says this month I saw I enjoyed something fun I did was and then make your own comic draw a story in the panels below right, what’s being said or big loud sounds, and the speech bubbles, that’s really cute alright and Then now we’re into the next month, so you get these for every single month and clearly you don’t have to go in.

Like order of you have to start it in January. You can start it whenever, but it’s got all these decorative stickers and it has like, like in March, it says day like saving times begin.

If you like it and then in December, we’ve got more holiday, gifting things and then it says winter begins and Year’s Eve. This is so cute. I like that. It’s guided. I really like that. It’s guided because I think, as a kid I mean even as an adult. Sometimes you look at these planners and you’re like I don’t know what I’m going to do with this.

I really like that. It’s guided okay, let’s keep going because I think they’re a little bit different each month. So I want you guys to see everything and then be able to like make your own decision so things on my mind, you can draw a little something. That’s in your mind, and then still this page is still the same. Let’s see, I believe it is yeah, so the routines and the birthdays, and then this page is the same and then let me look okay, so this page at the very end of the month is the same.

I saw I enjoyed and fun things I did was so that’s kind of like a nice recap of the month and then on the next page, just something a little bit different. So it’s got like a little word find and then we are into this ooh create your own shoes. Oh wow. I need some new shoes, Oh create my own shoes, and then this is the third months and then in here. Oh, if I were a superhero, hmm, that’s pretty neat and then we’ve got more of these things and then what kind of planet you want to live on? Another planet, one cool, color, the shapes below to create the solar system.

Nice! Oh! This is very satisfying this little box. That says I did it, that’s exciting, alright and then I am and then finish the crow write. A word on the grid above to finish the same. Oh very neat and then we’ve got a secret message, very cool and then let’s see what got next ooh decorate your cake. Very hmm. This is fun. Oh, it says what is that put on your thinking, cap and finish the picture below.

Well, there can be so many things you never know all right into the next month. You class time fill in the speech bubble with what your favorite things are to do in school, very, very fun. I really liked art in school. That was probably my favorite thing to do, is creative stuff and then there’s a little maze with a treasure. At the end, very neat, all right ooh, my funny face – I can make a few of those, oh goodness, and that says, would you rather ooh? Would you rather have tentacles for arms or four legs? I don’t know, would you rather be invisible or walk through walls? I’d rather be invisible, would you rather travel by spaceship or by dinosaur? I don’t know they both sound, very interesting right and then we’ve got the next one who trace your hand, oh my hand fits in there.

I could trace my hand and then give this to someone that’d be weird. Oh goodness, and then let’s see another word find very cool. Oh, it has all the words down here. Let’s see ooh, let’s go team, ooh sports or whatever I create a banner for the team that you love to root for and then animal alphabet try to write as many animal names. You can think. That’s start with the letter, A through Z. Oh, that’s kind of neat alright and then some fun in the Sun drop.

What you like to do when you were outside and then tell a story: cool, Oh a tic-tac-toe. Yes, I love a good tic-tac-toe game, oh and then a coloring time. It’s like little toucan thing well, jungle, scene, and then that is it there’s nothing else in the back. There’s no stickers, but I mean you get a plethora of stickers right here, so I think you’re good on the sticker situation, but yeah that is it there’s also a couple of other things that they had sent over in the PR kit.

I’m not sure if this is a bundle on the website or not, but these would be some great add-ons for the kids sticker or the kids sticker. I’m sorry, the kids planner, clearly Erin Condren tooltip’ Marcos be fabulous for a lot of that coloring in and then we’ve got these, which are those puffy stickers. I’m not going to take these out because it’s just the one sheet, but this one has three sticker sheets and I don’t know if they’re all the same.

Let’s take a look see: oh they’re, all different, okay cool. So these are all foiled. So this is like an orange foil like it’s, not gold, it’s like orange. This one is like a purple foil, and then we have these more turquoise foils, which is really cool, and I also like that this is not super gender II. If that makes sense, I don’t even know, if that’s a word but it’d feel like if you have a boy or girl that they could really like this, no matter what the gender of the child I mean, I know that the majority of decorative planners out there Are women? Yes, but you know there are men.

I have a man friend that is a planner ryan from a man with the plans I’ll stick his blog up in a card for you guys. If you want to read him, but you know, I think this is just a really nice creative outlet, especially if you have a parent that plans. Your kids really want to plan too. It’s just something that they can have for their own and they can draw on it and they can, you know, mess it all up or they can make it all pretty or whatever they want to do.

I just think: that’s really nice. So I really like that. This is not specifically female-driven that it’s really it could be for any kid okay, so that is it for me. Thank you guys so much for reading my article about the new Erin Condren, kids planner. I think this is a great idea for lots of kids that might like this kind of thing, so you know your own children, I’m sure you’ll know if they’re going to you know be into this or not also makes a really fun gift as well, which is What I’m going to be doing with this, but if you have any questions, feel free to post them down below, and what do you guys think about the kids planner? Do you think your kids would be into it? Is this something that you think would be a great idea for kids? Let me know down in the comments below so anyway.

That’s going to be it for me. Thank you guys so much for reading, if you, like, the article, make sure to give it a thumbs up and 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

Weekly Planner Spreads | August 2019

I know I really don’t do plant with me type articles anymore. I will link my playlist up above if you would like to read you know. What’s been giving me a lot of planner piece recently is just kind of filling it in when I get home and making it really work. For me, if y’all are interested, I am using an Erin Condon condon, an Erin Condren, binder system.

This year. I have the Navy cover and I chose the hourly colorful version and I really like that you can. You know, take these pages out and stuff like that. Like it’s super helpful, you know when you’re trying to decorate – or you know when I’m right-handed. So if I’m trying to write something on here, like I don’t bump into this, I can just pop this little sucker out. So it’s really actually helpful for me so anyway, let’s talk about this week, so this week is July 29 through August 4, and this was a pretty alright week did a bunch of stuff and my mom and I were kind of getting stuff ready for Niagara Falls, Which you’ll actually see in this like planner, I guess you’re not going to actually see Niagara Falls in the article.

I’m sorry, if you guys want to see the Niagara Falls, article I’ll link it for you guys, so we chatted about it. On Monday, we already had this plan like last year and then I got the hotel booked and everything, so it kind of like figured out a plan, and then you know we kind of just like went from there. I’ve been having some problems recently. Unfortunately, some health issues, so I have been working from home.

It’s like digestive stomach problems, so you’ll, probably guys, will learn more about that in September, because I have some more doctor’s appointments and stuff scheduled that I need to take care of. So anyway. I’ve been working from home a lot recently because of that, because you know my just had to be close to a bathroom which is gross, but it’s part of life. You know also on the third, I went to Ryan’s apartment with Doyle and we had a great time and Doyle now owns his apartment.

So anyway, so that’s a good time. Oh and then I also released my ticket information for my 20 year high school reunion, which is coming up this October. So it’s coming up really darn fast. So anyway, that was this week and then we get into the week of the 5th through the 11th, and this was an OK ish week. I actually, on Monday, had hail damage on my vehicle at work, so that was interesting, went to girls night with my friends and we wouldn’t had well tacos.

I don’t know. I think I just had rice. I can’t remember anyway, and then the next day I made my hail claim with my insurance company and doing all that good stuff. The next day I had a migraine, so I had these are my little migraine. People things anyways, so that was kind of a crummy day. On the next day I had to work from home because you know my well stickers. I worked on my packing list that evening and I wrapped up a gift for a friend, and then this was a really bad day.

It was a sick day. My mom came over to help me with some things and tried to sleep. Couldn’t do it my brother? Actually came over later on that day cuz he had to pick up some mail, but the nice thing about that Jay was my friend’s daughter was born. Charlotte was born that day at 9:29, so it was very exciting and then the next day I did some laundry. I made my collab list: the actually the wild for planners sale is going on right now, but this article is going to go up probably way after this, but I was making kind of my list and then I took a nap because clearly I wasn’t feeling of The day before and started to pack my bags and then I went to the twins game for a little while we didn’t stay the whole time.

But we went to the twins game for a little while and then I did some meal prep, so yeah and then the next week, I’m actually in Niagara Falls. I had to contact my doctor about my problems, so I need to talk to him about test stomach issues migraines and my prescription refills, so we’ll get into that in the next week. This I worked from home these two days because I just was not able to deal that makes sense.

Then, on Wednesday I actually was in to the office that day, which is great Rand at the post office, and then I went to Ryan’s apartment to drop off little Doyle dog, because Doyle was hanging out with Ryan from a man with the plans for the weekend. So that was fun. My mom and I left on Thursday morning bright and early and drove to New York, but the we actually stayed in Ohio on Thursday and then we basically after lunch, we got to Niagara Falls.

Our check-in was at like 2:30 or 3:00 or something – and we got there like right at that time, so it worked out great. So we actually went to like a little Niagara Falls movie, which I totally recommend. We had some Chinese food that night and then we went up on this. Like looking pier area. I don’t know what that’s called is probably totally wrong, but we readed the light, show and fireworks which is really cool and then the next day it actually rained.

Quite a bit in the morning and then we went over to Canada. We went to a really great Italian restaurant called mamma mias, which was wonderful. It was recommendation from one of you guys and then you know, did a bunch of other little adventures in Canada and then came back. And then we went on me to the mist I got super burnt and then for dinner. We had went to Hard Rock and then on Sunday morning we started driving back to Minnesota.

So we just drove – and I just put in like food stuff because it was just like that’s all we did and then we stopped in Illinois for the evening and then our tolls total from like the beginning to the end, was 74 dollars and 40 cents. We should have just flew there anyway, so now with this week, which we’re in this is today we drove for part of the day, and then I picked up toil kind of later on in the afternoon.

It was about three four somewhere in there, so I was able to stop by Ryan’s apartment, which was kind of on our way home, and he and then I unpacked did a little bit of laundry and that was kind of my Monday and then on Tuesday went To work, which was great all that good stuff and then I went to Abra to get a Hale estimate and all that good stuff, and I had to email acuity, which is the insurance company that I have once I got the estimate and then the next day.

Unfortunately, I had to work from home again I did have an appointment with my doctor and we have a bunch of things that we are now going to be dealing with yeah. So then my mom and I actually went to Applebee’s that evening and then I had to go to Walgreens to pick up a prescription next day I worked from home as well, and then I had to make a consultation appointment for a surgery I need to have, And then I also this was the first day of the wild collab sale, which is right here and we’re currently in it.

There are a bunch of shops that I shopped at right away, and then there are a few today that I am going to shop as well, because I just can’t help myself plus I’ll, be doing a haul for you guys to the next day I had my Culligan service come into my home. They just come into my home a couple of times a year and maintain my unit and things like that. So they do that when I’m not home or sometimes I am home, but whatever they know how to get in, went to lunch with some co-workers and then helped out.

My HR person, with some false store apparel items, ran to Target to get some groceries and such, and then I got sick that night again, so that was no bueno. The next day I actually got my acuity check from here from my estimate so figured that out. So I ran to the bank and did my deposit. I also went to Walgreens cuz. I had another pickup and then there was a planner meet up at the maple grove library which I went to, and then I went to Olive Garden with Ryan, from a man with the plans and then today this is this morning.

I had to place an amazon order. There was just a couple things I was missing. I was supposed to be going to a brunch with the Minnesota trio, which is Ryan from a man with the plans and Jodi from life’s organized chaos. I will leave their blogs down below for you guys if you want to check them out, because you totally should how ever Jodie’s plans changed. She has been doing a ton of traveling for work and she had to leave a little bit earlier than expected.

So we were going to reschedule that, so it’s been we maybe sometime in September that we will get together. I had to drop off things at the lab and you can see what that is. Um part of the doctor thing and then today I am filming. Look at this, I can do this um. I already did my sublet guilded subscription box, my September budget.

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.

So anyways that’s going to be it for me today. I just wanted to share with you guys what I am planning on using for the 2019 2020 year in my Erin Condren hourly. Please please. Let me know in the comments below what you’re going to be using to organize your life for the upcoming year, even if it’s not an Erin Condren, that’s okay! Even if it’s like your cell phone, that’s alright and if y’all are interested in any Erin Condren products.

There are links down below, for you guys I will be leaving links to a Christian and also coffee break planner as well, because I used some of their stickers in here. So if you guys want to check out those websites they’re right down below, but thank you guys so much for reading. I really appreciate it 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 is time to kick it old school

Erin Condren Academic Planner First Impressions | #ECAcademicCalendar #ECSquad

As you see, I have a big old erin condren box in front of me. We are going to be doing a first impressions on some of the things that are inside here, so I’m very excited to get started shout out to the Erin Condren team for sending me all the goodies that are inside of here today. We’re going to be talking mainly about the Erin Condren academic planner.

Things have changed a sense last year and I actually did a review and first impressions on the one last year. I believe it was, and I will link that up in a card for you guys, but let’s get this big box out of the way and then we’ll move on from there. This was in the bottom of the box. I don’t know what this is for, but oh you know what I do know what this is for we’re going to just leave that right there so anyways.

First things: first, when you get your lovely box from Erin Condren, they always have a little postcard. That has a really nice quote on it, and it says whatever you are be a good one and then my favorite thing is these little guys. They are really nice gift label tags or just anything tags it always says enjoy they usually are these like scalloped adhesive stickers? Well, clearly, stickers are adhesive Emily, oh man, it says to and from I’ve used these before, for giving away like candy or baked goods to like co-workers, our neighbors or friends, or something like that and just put it on like a little cell, Oh bag.

I love these. I think these are awesome and that it comes wrapped in a navy tissue paper and has the signature Erin Condren enjoy on the side here. So let’s open this guy up – and I don’t really talk about this too often but like I got ta say I love their packaging just because I have rarely gotten anything – that’s been damaged if you guys are interested in my Erin Condren playlist I’ll link it up In a card and down below for you guys very rarely do I get anything that’s actually damaged because they have such nice like packing on their stuff.

So anyway, this is all the good stuff. So let me take all this like packaging away and then we’ll talk about it. Alright, so I want to talk about everything at one by one and then we’ll get to the planner at the very end. These are the designer note card set they’re fifty aligned, three by five and note cards with a binder ring, which is this bad boy right here, and I did see some people on the interwebs talk about these and I thought these are just really unique and neat.

So it has the woven, wonder pattern, and this is one of those like erasable things like you, can use one of those markers on here and then on. The backside, there’s also like aligned, but it’s like a laminated one. So that’s really cool and then there’s also a back as well, and then you’ve got all your note cards and they all have the hole punch in them, which is pretty unique and neat. And I really really like that, and then you can just put this all together.

If I can do it right there we go. I need a little strength in the morning. I haven’t had my like caffeination yet and there you go, that’s what it looks like. So you can take notes if you’re doing a speech or, if you’re just you know wanting to take notes on a certain topic or subject or something. But you know I feel like this would be good, even if you aren’t a student and next off. I got these.

I have been hearing lots of things about them. I wanted to see them in person they’re the 12-page flags. They are all different colors and they have a little asterisk on them. I kind of was in the same boat of everyone else, where I really hoped that these would be like several of them and one like they’re, very, very, like I don’t know thick, isn’t the right thick is the right word, but they’re very glossy they’re, like a Permanent adhesive, I really wish that these were like the removable adhesive ones that, like you, know, 3m makes and stuff, because I think that would be amazing because I use those all the time.

But I mean these are really cool, just because I love the Erin Condren little asterisks as well as I love their colorway. So I’m not sure what I’m going to be using these for, but I think I will have some sort of project that will come up and well. I will use these, but again, I wanted to see them in person, and I just thought that I could use them in some way in all my planning systems. Next up is this snap-in dashboard.

That also has the woven, wonder, pattern on it and it has in foiled top priorities and then like a little checklist and then I have and then a little checklist down here and then let me open this up because there’s always fun things on the back, usually And then, let’s see yeah on the back side, it’s got Monday through Sunday, so you could put in like a meal plan or two dues or anything like that.

Also with that woven wonder pattern, which is like one of my favorite things now and of course no Erin Condren box would be it complete without sticky note, so I thought that this would be great to put in this box just because I always am running low On these sticky notes, for whatever reason I got to say, I’ve had a lot of questions on my Instagram and on my facebook as to the adhesiveness of some of the ones in the years past.

I hear you, but these ones, the new ones, the woven wonder and the teacher ones that I have sitting over here right now. These are not part of this haul, but I do have them sitting over here. These have a great adhesive stickiness to them. They don’t leave a film on your page, at least what I have noticed with the ones that I’ve gotten, but they don’t like curl up as much these ones, the new ones.

So I think that they improved some of their adhesives. I’m very very excited about that. So I just keep buying the same patterns like over and over and over and over, but I just absolutely love this pattern anyway, and I really like all of the different sizes and shapes of these notes. Next up is this designer sticker book. I know if you guys have been reading me for a little while you have seen this in a couple of months back, but I did decide to get a new one.

It’s got lots of different stickers sheets and it’s got like transparent stickers and just like regular stickers too, which I absolutely love. But this is the new sticker book for this year. The 2018-2019 season, so I’m very, very excited about this and link will be below to all the products that I’m talking about. And lastly, let’s talk about this little bundle set before we get into the planner.

This was, I think it was like called, maybe like the writing, utensil bundle. Actually, let me look it up, because you know I’m not good at things sometimes. Ah, here it is it’s the writing, essentials bundle and, as of me filming this, this is on sale for $ 25. You do get a little bit of a discount when you buy some of the bundles. So if you actually search like erin condren and like the sale tab, there’s a bunch of different bundles available.

Alright, so here are all the things that are in writing essentials bundle. This is what I was kind of talking about. These wet erase markers you could put on here and then, when they dry down, they don’t come off, but then you can just take like a little baby, wipe or actually just throw it under water and it’ll all come off with pretty good ease. But I love these things and these are the fine tip ones they do also have like thicker tipped ones.

I believe I’m not sure if they’re still in their website, but I know they’ve had them in years past these. As you know, I absolutely love the dual tip markers, I’m a fan of all of them, but I thought hey. Why not get some of these as well, I’m always looking for a black or a blue. You know what I mean. We’re always looking for that. Also this pencil set – I have never had this particular pencil set before, but it has lots of different things in here.

I think I’ve gotten some pencils in years past from like some of the seasonal surprise boxes, but I don’t think I’ve ever had these particular ones. So it’s got some of the mid-century circles. Oh they already come sharpened, for you that’s kind of cool, so it’s got two mid-century circles, one’s a watercolor and then it has some of the metallic dots. So the pink one has rose gold. The teal one has gold and this purple one has silver and then like up at the top next to their eraser.

It has like the same kind of metallic that it coordinates with so very cool and they’re, just six of them, which I live and then really the reason I wanted this is. I wanted these highlighters. I’ve never had highlighters from Erin Condren before, and I thought you know what I think it’s time to finally do this. I know they’ve had them on there like website for ever, but I’ve just never used them.

I think you know it was just. It was time guys it was finally time to do it, so let’s try it with some Erin Condren paper. I just have this sitting here. This is not part of the hall, but oh that writes nicely. They like feel they feel nice in your hand too. I was kind of worried that they’d be like a little too bulky. You know some highlighters are just like a little too thick, but these feels really nice yeah yep.

I like those those are nice. Oh, I almost forgot to mention these. These are the colorful monthly adhesive tabs. I did get these separately, but they do have like a rose gold like January February March April May June July. You know all that good stuff, because the planner that I received is not tabbed. So I thought that this would be something that I could put on the planner all right. So here is the planner.

It also comes with these colorful date, dots from Erin Condren. This is an undated planner, so they do include this typically with your purchase. I believe that this always comes with it. Don’t quote me on it, but I’m pretty sure it does the undated Nastase it flexible. So you can start and stop your planner at any time. So big changes for this year, if you guys readed my other article, that I linked up in a card earlier, you would have noticed that the other one was bound and what that means is.

It was like a not a hardbound, but it was like a soft bound. It did not have the coil, so it was a little bit different and it also was not as thick, which I am very excited to see. What’s in the guts, so it comes with a coil which is fabulous. These are 7 by 9. They fit the regular 7 by 9 covers. I chose the woven wonder pattern in the white background. I didn’t do any personalization, because I wasn’t a how-to percent sure what I was going to do with this or if I was going to gift this to somebody I wasn’t a hundred percent sure.

So I thought you know what I’m totally down with the woven Wonder. So let’s get the white one, because I love the way that this looks also to let you know that these planners start at $ 35. There is some other detailed customization that you can do, that is additional, but these are $ 35 and when you open this up on the back side is also an opportunity for the wet erase markers to kind of put in a list or something like that.

And then, on the right hand, side it says academic planner, your name school and year, and this is a 12 month planner. I believe that the previous ones that they had were only six months. If I remember right but yeah, I think this looks really nice and the paper quality is the same as the red planners so who have a regular planner. It’s that same mohawk paper that they released last season. So like 2017 2018.

And then, when you open it up, you get right into stuff, so the first page here is projects and exams. Your description, your class, the details, the deadlines, important dates and then there’s like a little check for complete, and that is very satisfying. I think so. There’s three on each page and let’s see there’s a bunch of pages in here all right, so there’s a whole bunch of these. So if you’ve got projects and exams and things you need to study for there’s a bunch of pages and then on this page here.

On the left hand, side is just a nice blank notes, pages and or notes pages. This notes page and then on the right-hand side says what you seek is seeking you and then you get into your first month. This is where your colorful date dots come into. Play so you can write up here what month it is and then also put in your date thoughts. Also, if you don’t like the date dots, you can also just write it in too it’s just kind of up to you and then once you decide what month, this will be so say it’s really an academic year for you and you want to maybe start it In August or September, depending on when your school starts, you could grab one of these little adhesive monthly tabs and put in the coordinating tab on this page.

So then, you knew kind of you know what was going on. So this is very very similar to the Erin Condren life planner, as well as the Erin Condren deluxe monthly planner. However, the only real difference is that at the bottom here there is no coordinating month before the next month because it’s undated, so let’s flip through and see okay perfect. So this is the week of and then you can write whatever you want and then Monday through Friday, in full box form and it has Monday.

And then you know like a smaller box, a bigger box and then to do checklist. And then Saturday and Sunday is a little bit smaller because they all fit on one line down here. That makes sense, so you’ve got one two three four five weeks and then you’ve got two notes: pages that are in the lined and then two more and another one so yeah and then you’re into the next month. So every month it looks like is like that.

So, let’s get into when things change, let’s see, let’s see, alright, I’m almost at the back of the planner. Let’s see, I don’t know if there’s anything extra back here, I don’t think there is. That’s alright, though, cool alright, so I’m at the very back of the planner now after the twelve months and then on the back side over here, it says, arriving at one goal is the start of another and it has some info about Erin Condren.

Oh, this is really cool, so it’s got one sticker sheet back here and it says exam midterm test quiz read paper: do study group study no class and vacation. Then it has some other blank event stickers as well for you and then after this is another one of those covers on the inside. You could use those wet erase markers as well and then on the back. Is my nice little woven wonder pattern so that is a peek inside of the new academic planner for 2018 2019.

It again is undated with no tabs, but I kind of like that idea just because it gives you a lot more flexibility to start and stop your planner whenever you’d like, and I just think this is a really great idea for students out there or anyone that Really likes this particular set up, it could be good for and then also if somebody wants to use this for work, I mean it’s got. You know the week of and then some kind of tasking things and then to do is.

I think this would be great for work as well. I mentioned that in my teacher lesson, planner review – that’s a bigger planner than this – it’s like literally bigger, but that one was a great setup for that as well. But you know this would be wonderful for work projects or work things, and things like that that you want to keep track of as well, if you’re not into any of the Erin Condren life planner layout options, and it’s got lots of notes pages.

So if you have meetings or conferences or things like that, you could take notes – and you know do all that stuff, but yeah I mean. I just think this is a really really neat planner, I’m so glad that they put 12 months in there now rather than six months. But what do you guys think of the planner? I would love to know in the comment down below, but that is going to be it for me today. I thank you guys so much for hanging out with me if you’re interested in anything from Erin Condren, the links are down below for y’all.

Thank you. So much for reading – and I will see y’all in the next one bye guys well folks – is time to kick it old school

My 2020 Medical Planner | Erin Condren Softbound Focused Collection

This is what I have chosen for 2020, as some of you know that read my vlogs or maybe follow me on Instagram there’s a link below. If you want to follow me on Instagram, I have been having some major health problems in 2019 and unfortunately, they are going to trickle over into 2024, probably the entire year anyway.

That being said, I’m, like you, know what I need to get my life organized and have a planner that’s dedicated just to my health. I do use on a daily basis, just the regular, like Erin Condren binder, and I do put my health appointments in here. Here’s my current week right now and I actually have a doctor’s appointment on the 26th but um I need somewhere to put and log everything and something easy and portable to take with me.

When I have these appointments, I do use an Erin Condren planner tote bag. As my daily purse um – and this fits really well in it – I do use currently the black one and it’s the smaller Erin Condren tote bag. I really really like it so anyways I decided to go with. This is called the focused planner and it is in the Navy soft bound. It’s an a5 size. You can decide if you want to get it embossed or not.

I believe there is a chart, I think it’s five or ten dollars. I did get it embossed with my initials, so it’s e j.G. Those are my initials and yeah. I’ve already set this up. I just wanted to walk through it with you, so I could show you kind of how I’m using it I’m sure it’ll keep being modified as we go so anyways. Let’s, let’s get going here, I actually have some test results that I need to bring to my first appointment on the 26th, so I just have that in here, so I can give that to my physician in the new department so anyways I haven’t my name on There I should do that and then the next page is 2020.

I haven’t put anything in here yet, but whatever so, you guys are going to see like names of my doctors, so like don’t be super creepy and like stop them. Okay, okay on this page, it has the holidays and then, like special dates, I haven’t decided what I want to do with this. I mean clearly some months, I’m going to have a ton of appointments and some months I might have none. I don’t know so. I’m just going to kind of like leave it as it is, so we are almost in January, so we are in December.

Currently, it is Christmas Eve actually right now, when I’m filming this, but on the 26th I have an appointment, it’s 7:50 at the Fridley clinic, and I have like my first consultation and a little bit about my medical background as to like what is going on this Early fall, they found out that I had a hiatal hernia and what that is, is it’s basically a hole that is in your body and it’s when your stomach and esophagus meet up, so the only way to actually fix that is with surgery.

There are some dietary things that you can do to help it out. However, those have not worked for me. I’ve been on a plethora of medications and more medications because of that, and I met with the surgeon that does regular hiatal hernia surgeries and because I’m not fully responding to the oral medications. I am no longer a candidate for the regular surgery. She then suggested the only way to actually fix it, in my specific case would be a bariatric surgery and for anyone that doesn’t know what bariatric surgery is, it’s a weight loss surgery.

They basically reroute your stomach, and I have had so many stomach issues for several years. It’s just been really bad, this past 2019 and finally did something about it. So I’ve probably had the hernia for quite a while and just been living very uncomfortably. I can’t sleep well, I have crazy, lucid, like weird dreams, because of all the medications I’m taking, because I’m taking all the medications, I tend to get more migraines, which is a whole nother issue.

So anyway, there’s like a lot going on so anyways. This is basically going to be now my weight-loss journey. Slash get my tummy write book, plus any other like doctor’s appointments. I have to deal with so as of right now. My insurance has not approved the surgery. However, my surgeon and my general practitioner doctor are putting or have put in a request for them to cover it because they would have covered my normal hiatal hernia hiatal hernia surgery anyways.

So it’s going to take probably a month or so for us to hear anything and then they’ll probably end up doing another submittal as well before it gets approved so anyways. Now you know way too much about my health, okay, so um like I said I have my first appointment on the 26th, so I figured I’d put it in here just because like why not and then I also have an appointment with a dietician. Her name is Janelle on the 16th, so these kind of go like hand in hand.

I can’t do anything with the surgery team yet, but I will be able to do some stuff with a surgery team once it gets approved through insurance, but I have to do this anyways, so I figured well. Let’s get the party started and I did call my insurance and they do cover this so anywho. I also have these really cute stickers that I got a while ago. I want to say they’re from planner bunny press or bunny planner press.

Something like that. I will link them down below, but it’s like these little trifold scales, so I figured I would like weigh myself every weekend or you know like just once a week and then put it in there, so I would have a record of it just to share with My physicians also, I got these little stickers um. You can’t see very well probably but they’re clear, adhesive and they’re for Erin Condren, and this one says January, and it says January, on the other side as well and then also on the month, because it’s not really a tab.

I ended up putting a little bit of washi tape right here, so you can clearly see you know where your month is like where, where the month you know, starts or whatever so anyway, all right, let’s get back to January, you guys are going to learn like Way too much about me on this okay, so the first page is you know over on this side. It just says January: you’ve got you know some lines, you got some checklists and then also you got the back side of the washi.

So currently, these are on the medications I’m taking and why I’m taking them, how much all that good stuff. So I wan na like every beginning of the month. I want to make sure to write that down, because, if anything changes I want to be able to tell you know my physician what’s going on, because they have been messing with my medications lately so and then, like February. I would do the same thing, but it’s clearly not February yet so I can’t put that in so anyways and then I can like adjust it if it needs adjusting and then so over here we’ve got like your weekly pages.

I’m not like a horizontal person at all, but I think for this it’s going to be just fine, because I’m not really utilizing it too much. I’m just kind of writing things down. So you know this kind of stuff or like. If I have a migraine or you know, I have to go to Urgent Care or the ER or something I can write that in and why and all that good stuff. So anyway, that is kind of how I am going to use this planner coming up, and here I’m going to put this right here, because that’s what I need and so yeah.

So these are some test results that I have to give my you know physician when I see them on the 26th, so I just have that in here and it’s just like a nice compact little thing and you know I can fit into my hand really easily Um, you know walking room with a life planner every day, just really doesn’t suit me and my needs. Even though I love my life planner, but I don’t think it’s ever left my house um.

I usually just keep it right here, um. You know you know on my desk or whatever and just let you know these do retail for $ 30. I don’t think I said that yet, but these do retail for $ 30 and they’re in the a5 size. So they’re, I don’t know they’re just really really. Nice and you know, I’m excited to use this and I’m excited to make progress. You know in my health journey also the back has a little Erin Condren logo on it.

So yeah I went through every single month and you know just started everything with you know this and then I put in like when I’m going to be gone. This is going to be go wild. I don’t know the dates yet I mean I know that. Go wild. It was actually like right here, but I don’t know like when we’re leaving and when we’re coming back. So I was like asker it I’m just going to like put all the put all the washi.

Why the hell not, and then I just love these little things, I think those aren’t really darn cute and to me I don’t feel like it bulks up the planner too much with the washi and the trifold stickers. I think it’s you know just fine by me. So yeah, then there’s July August. Remember that September and October. Oh and another thing, is I really like at the very end of the month hold on you have pages like you have two lined pages, so I can make any notes I want to make.

If I’m in a doctor’s appointment or maybe after the appointment, make any notes and then also in the very beginning of the month, you know I’m going to do my medications here, but I can make any other notes over here that I need to or if they’re Just really simple notes: you know I can make them on the day of the pointman or maybe a day. I don’t have an appointment. I can just like you know, keep writing or whatever.

So I do really like that so yeah and then I have November and then December and then in the back I decided to do so. This is going to get creepy. Okay, so like don’t be creepy and like stalked, my doctors, okay, so I wanted to put in some notable dates. So these are some dates that a lot of people ask about when I go to appointments and see other doctors. So anyway, I had an ER visit because of chest pain, that’s kind of like what started this whole thing I mean.

Clearly. I’ve had stomach problems and reflux issues for a long time like years, but yeah. I thought I was having a heart attack and I was not because yeah my hernia was acting up and I clearly didn’t know. I had a hernia at the time and then I have September 19th. I had the endoscopy which they found the hernia. I had my fallopian tubes removed on October 31 and then I had this esophageal manometry and 24 hour pH test in November anyway, and then so I have like all my doctors written down that I’ve worked with or are going to be working with and then, like Current allergies so yeah and then I’ve got more pages to go, and then I actually put in like some of the places that I need to go their addresses so yeah and then I’ve got the 2021 page so anyway.

That is it for a look at my medical planner for 2020. I hope you guys enjoyed if you use a soft bound, a focused planner.
