Fun fact: During the work day, I don’t have access to my cell phone. This makes keeping up with work/blog/life a real challenge during a business day. Particularly since appointments and events are typically kept in the Calendar or Notes section of my phone. I keep clutter to a minimum so a bound planner has never really been my style. The thought of keeping an extra calendar outside my phone seems redundant to me. But with the added challenge of my work space situation, I needed a better solution.
Enter: The Erin Condren Life Planner. It’s customizable, cute, and most importantly, all seven days of the week have equal space on each page. This is one of the only planners I’ve ever found that gives the same amount of real estate to weekend days as week days which is essential for a 9-5, 5-9er like myself. Not into that layout? No worries. There are tons of layouts to choose from.
It’s branded as a life planner but for me it’s been a life saver. I’m able to keep track of my schedule and important notes throughout the work week and I can plan ahead without having to hop outside to check my phone every so often.
My favorite part? The customizable, interchangeable covers. My planner actually came with a monogram cover that I ended up liking a little more online than I did in person. So, I hopped on the site and created this grey marble one. First name: HUSTLE, last name: HARD, and a few bucks later a new cover was on its way. Right now, they’re also offering customizable stationary and the prices can’t be beat. Use code GETSOCIAL15 to get 15% off of any Erin Condren purchase.
