As most of us know, organization is KEY to staying on top of when & where you are supposed to be as well as getting everything that needs to be accomplished complete on time. For the past two years, I have used an Erin Condren LifePlanner and it has truly been the most useful organization tool to help me through daily life. People often ask me how I am able to fit so much into my days and my answer is always the same:

I take the time to plan it all out. It enables me to accomplish more and have a sense of peace that I’m not forgetting anything.

Now I know some people who basically can keep their schedule and to-dos all in their head. They trust that they will remember what they are supposed to remember when they are supposed to remember it. If that works for you, that is wonderful, but if you are like me, then you’ll understand when I say even just typing those two sentences out caused me a tiny bit of stress… ;)

Planning provides me with the luxury of knowing I don’t have to keep it all in my head. By writing everything in my planner, I’m trusting that almost like having a personal assistant, I will be reminded of what I’m supposed to be doing, exactly when I am supposed to be doing it. It gives me mental space, which I believe makes me more productive and more focused on whatever task I currently have at hand. If its not written down, I find that I worry about not only the task itself, but remembering to do the task #nothelpful

If you haven’t read why I originally chose an Erin Condren Life Planner specifically, you can read about it in this post. I recently ordered my third Erin Condren planner and received it in the mail last week (YAY!) which calls for my 2014 Erin Condren Life Planner Review.

Some things I am loving about the 2014 Erin Condren Life Planner:

  • You can choose two lines of text to personalize on the front cover, and this year I chose my first and last name as well as the words “Twenty Fourteen” written out. I was going to just put the numbers “2014” but I thought it may look a little small below my long name. The written out year fits very nicely and is a little different– I love it!
  • Erin’s new designs usually come out around June, but I don’t order my planner for the next year until November-ish. For 2014, I wanted something with more color than my current planner, so I chose the pattern “Party Pops” in charcoal. I just love how the dots provide so much color but the charcoal keeps it looking classy and neat.
  • She has changed the layout a little bit from last year’s version, making the goals and notes one column on the left side of “week view” {it used to be two separate columns}, anddd by adding little lines at the bottom of each day to write whatever little lists you need to make for that day! (Right now I use those lines for homework.)
  • Now this year I decided to get some fun accessories as well! Since I use my planner every single day and really enjoy using it, I decided it’s worth the little extra happy accessories :) Here’s what I got:
    • EXTRA blank stickers (a few blank sticker pages already come in the back of every planner) because they really make “key” events stand out, which it so helpful when you are trying to quickly glance at what you have going on.
    • Photo Stickers! I put the faces of the important people in my life on these stickers and placed their face on their birthday in “month view”. Is this slightly creepy? Yes. BUT it is also brings so much personality and fun to have the faces of those you love in your planner! Trust me, it’s awesome.
    • A pen holder which I attach to my planner & keep one of my Sharpie Pens or a Papermate Flair pens in (aka the best pens to use with this planner).
    • I decided to also try out the Elastic Bands to keep my planner shut. I’m thinking the elastic bands will be very helpful for those weeks when I am extremely busy and storing lots of random papers and lists in my planner!
