Erin Condren LifePlanner Review

In this Erin Condren LifePlanner review, I’ll share why the Erin Condren planner is the only one for me.

Using a paper planner has been a major part of my personal, family and business life for years. It’s transformed how organised I am and planning has even become both a hobby and a business for me too!

About Erin Condren Planners

For me, the quality of the Erin Condren range is the main driver that brings me back to their planners each year.

The range of agendas and planners is vast, with a planner to suit every budget and every need.

In fact, the range includes:

  • Daily planners
  • Weekly planner
  • Monthly planners
  • Specific planners such as An Erin Condren Teacher Planner, Erin Condren Wedding Planner, Erin Condren Student Planner and Erin Condren Academic Planner.

EC personalized planners and organizers also make beautiful gifts for friends and family too.

For me, it’s the EC personalized Life Planner all the way. This is the best life planner for me because it’s so customisable.

I love the Vertical weekly planner because I’m a list-maker and I really like how each day has a long vertical column that I can separate into everything I need to get done.

You can find out how I plan my week and set up my vertical layout planner here.

As well as the Erin Condren Vertical Planner, you might prefer the structure of the Erin Condren Hourly or Horizontal LifePlanner.

You can buy an Erin Condren LifePlanner online at the Erin Condren store here.

Erin Condren Covers

What’s Outside?

Let’s start with the Erin Condren planner cover choices.

Erin Condren LifePlanner Review

The front and back cover of the Life Planner book is customisable and I added my name this year.

You can choose from a huge range of Erin Condren design or upload your own. This year, I picked a beautiful floral “Oh Joy!” cover.

Inside the front and back cover are wipe clean spaces to add lists, goals or any detail you choose.

Every detail can be customised including the coil! Choose from Silver, Gold, Rose Gold or Black.

What’s Inside?

Inside the Erin Condren Vertical LifePlanner is a space to write your name and you’ll instantly notice how thick and buttery the paper feels.

Erin Condren LifePlanner Review

Colours are bright and each year, the internal designs changes.

You can choose either a Neutral or Colourful internal design and this year, I’ve moved to neutral which is predominantly black and white.

That said, I love to decorate with life planner stickers to add colour, pattern and design to my weeks and you can check out my range of planner sticker printables here. If you’re looking for budget planner stickers, printables are perfect for saving money.

One thing I love about the EC planners is the positive and empowering quotes that are littered throughout. These appear in the start and at the beginning of each month and I find them so uplifting.

Erin Condren LifePlanner Review

You can also get some of the quotes as wall art and I have a few of those! Check out the range here.

Next is a double page spread including of 18 months. My planner was available to purchase last year so has from July 2018 to December 2019.

You can also buy an Erin Condren 18 Month Planner.

The next double page has spaces to write goals and resolutions for the year.

Each month and the weeks of that month are laid out in exactly the same way. They begin with a month at a glance planner and followed by double page spreads for each week in that month.

Erin Condren Month Planner and Weekly Planner Pages

There is so much room on each weekly spread to add your daily tasks and plans, plus extra notes.

Erin Condren LifePlanner Review

Each month ends with a Notes page. I don’t currently use these pages, do you? I would love your inspo on what to use them for!

The Back of the Planner

After the monthly and weekly pages are extra pages for notes, doodling and colouring in!

Plus a page for key Contacts and then a double page spread for the following year at a glance. You can find out more about their address books here.

    I am very much like this blog content but i am a person who doesn’t like to plan whole year. But if anyone wants to take suggestion from my side I am definitely referring your blog. If you have any weekly planner then please share with me in below reply section. Thanks…!!!

    I LOVE the Erin Condren Life Planner! The vertical Planner works for me with to combine my work and home life. I use it to record goals, daily gratitude, my yearly book list, new recipes I try, my kids school details and more! I love the quality of the paper and am now using the notebooks too. Just wished there was a store in Sydney!

  3. Vicky
    / 7:30 pm

    I would buy the petite planners, I love the idea of having a flexible way of planning and having an on the go folio

    / 10:47 am

    Thanks for your review. I have been wondering about the ec planners but cost is an issue as postage to Australia makes things super expensive. I confess it would be hard to choose as all the accessories are so pretty like the cases to protect your planner and all the stickers!!! I think a deluxe monthly would be a good place to start to try the system out.

  5. Sarah Hawker
    / 10:08 am

    I just got my first ever Erin Condren and I am so in love. I have a cart full of all the goodies I NEED to make it even better….. Elastic band trio, stencil sheet, washi tape that matches my cover (sparkles hearts because omg cute) and then all of the stickers – the monthly book particularly but allllllll of the stickers!!

  6. Jane Finn
    / 7:26 am

    I would buy an hourly life planner, I just started planning this year and have just discovered the EC planners and I am in love!

  7. Carolyn
    / 8:47 pm

    There are just so many good things I’m having an Erin Condren conundrum!! Address Labels, Notepads, Calligraphy Stencil, Stickers and my list just goes on!

  8. Louise
    / 6:36 pm

    I would get The Deluxe Monthly Planner with a Sparkle Heart cover. I’ve always wanted to try an Erin Condren and they actually look more amazing than I realised :)

  9. Angela M
    / 1:18 pm

    I love the journals, in particular the watercolour floral. I would get the watercolour floral – planner folio too.

    I would buy the vertical life planner – you’ve totally sold it to me! I currently don’t have a paper planner and my life is a mess so I think I really need one!

  11. Laura S
    / 3:32 pm

    I am searching for a new planner for college and this one looks promising. I would purchase a vertical weekly colorful with my name on it.

  14. Jill-Anne
    / 11:30 am

    I’m sure you’ll agree with me that my life needs to be planned by Erin Condren…I’m living life to the full after an horrifying, horrific, horrendous, horrid, hideous,, harrowing 2018 trying to keep pace of family commitments interspersed with a truckload of my medical, specialist and hospital appointments to keep track of… All this has made me appreciate that this wonderful life is there to be experienced… so with an Erin planner at the helm… I’l be more organised I won’t miss a thing.

  15. Jackie
    / 10:53 am

    I would get a life planner so that i can use it as a memory planner this year:) I want to journal every week with photos to showcase what we are up to!
    A nice memory to look back on down the track.

  16. Bianca Canavan
    / 10:17 am

    I would love to use the voucher to buy an Erin Condren LifePlanner! ❤️

    I have used a couple of different planners the last few years, but this year I’ve been so confused as nothing has felt like it would really work for me and my family. I am getting stressed as I plan everything and at the moment I am writing it all in my phone calendar until something grabs my attention. I am feeling so unorganised.

    The Erin Condren LifePlanner has everything I’ve been looking for!!!

  17. Lorisa Lopez
    / 8:08 am

    I love my Life Planner because it keeps me from being a total mess. It’s the glue that holds my life together. Your review was awesome!

  18. / 4:10 am

    I need a horizontal EC Life Planner for this year!

  19. MonMon
    / 2:26 am

    A vertical neutral life planner with a black coil ??

  20. Nadège Madline
    / 11:11 pm

    I would buy the same as you actually. I wish to get one since the day I started planning two years ago but it’s a bit expensive to me since I am from France.
    Nice post by the way!

  21. Melinda
    / 8:28 pm

    Wow! Love this blog post and now I NEED an EV life planner ?? it’s literally perfection

  22. Chelsea
    / 7:29 pm

    I absolutely love the weekly layout. That looks like it would be amazing for keeping myself, my son with severe autism and lots of therapy, and my daughter who is starting school and sport this year!

  23. Samantha Riley
    / 7:29 pm

    A Voucher would definitely go towards my next Life Planner. I would be lost without it some days especially keeping track of 3 children and their school and after school activities.

  24. Amy Yuen
    / 7:05 pm

    I would definitely use it towards getting a life planner! They look so pretty and neat, it’d be an amazing addition to organizing my life!

  25. Letisha
    / 5:37 pm

    My Erin condren vertical is my fave.. . It was a must have for me because it fits all the kits I’ve been buying. I was very impressed when I finally got my hands on one at the end of last year !!

  26. / 10:11 am

    I would love a life planner. I moved to a digital diary some years ago and miss the “solidness” of paper planning

  27. Lola
    / 7:32 pm

    I would go for the neutral vertical life planner. I would want this planner because after a really intense and busy year in 2018 I finally have some time for creative expression in 2019 and I feel like such a blank space will be a perfect surface to try that out.

  28. Mariana
    / 1:13 pm

    I’d buy the Erin Condren Vertical life planner

  29. Anna Pry
    / 10:53 am

  34. Adriana Fuentes
    / 1:21 am

    I have always wanted to try an Erin Condren planner but have always considered it to pricy for me. Getting a gift card would definitely help a lot!

  35. / 10:06 pm

    Ummmm… You had me at daily list making area!

  36. Lauren h
    / 4:29 pm

    I would buy a folio and covers

  37. Sharon
    / 3:14 am

    I have an EC for the first time ever. I’m a new planner and was really nervous about spending so much but I am loving it so far. I would love to purchase a new cover as well as some of their pens and a pencil case. They have too much I want!

  38. May
    / 4:17 pm

    You know those things you read about and say that you want to do? Well, I remember reading about mothers who would make an email address for their children and then send them emails of notes and photos. I thought about that but would love to do a handwritten journal. There is something so personal and heart warming about something handwritten. So, I’d love to purchase two journals: one for each son (birch and painted leaves would suit) and hand write one thing each day about a funny thing that happened or just a little love note. It would be great if I could get a portable photo printer to add the occasional photo too.

    It’s just I remember my aunt telling me she had written a letter to my mom asking my mom to consider marrying my dad (long story) and I wish she still had that letter. It’s something my boys will be able to keep forever.

  39. kvonaeKV
    / 4:01 pm

    I would choose the deluxe monthly planner because it has room for notes and tabs.

  40. S
    / 12:51 pm

  41. Nona
    / 12:11 pm

    I would love 2019 Life Planner. I would use it to track our family expenses and debt. We want to pay off some debt this year and if you can’t track your money you can’t save it!

  42. Whoolia
    / 11:58 am

    I would get some note cards!

  43. Katrina WIlson
    / 11:52 am

    I would love to have a 2019 Life Planner! I’ve been using a travelers notebook but I’ve been missing my EC so very much! Thank you for the opportunity!

  44. Diana
    / 11:35 am

  49. Karen
    / 2:08 am

    I would love to get a Teacher Planner to help me at work. I work at a school but in the office and would love to use it alternatively to monitor enrollments, keep track of families and goings on. It would be great to see how I could adapt it.

  50. Sonia Chang
    / 1:23 am

    I would DEFINITELY buy a lifeplanner. I have had one for the last 2 years and it makes me SO happy, however, I haven’t been able to afford one this year. I would love to use that money toward the weekly, vertical lifeplanner. *heart in eyes*

  52. Christina Compton
    / 11:48 pm

    I would purchase a new cover and/or one of the new bundles of accessories. I am using my first EC in 2019 and it has been wonderful so far….such high quality!

  54. Caralyn
    / 8:33 pm

    I’d love a LifePlanner. I’ve never owned an EC but I hear fabulous things about them and I know there’s a lot of people who won’t use anything else. I’m still not 100% happy with my planner style etc so maybe this is what I really need!

  55. Amber
    / 7:58 pm

    Hourly lifeplanner for sure! ?

  56. Abby
    / 7:47 pm

    I would but as many stickers as I could! They are all so pretty :) Thank you for the opportunity!

  57. Rebecca
    / 7:13 pm

    EC is the only planner for me too! I love all their products. The worst thing about Erin Condren is trying to decide what to remove from your cart to fit the purchase into your budget.

  58. Victoria
    / 4:45 pm

    Love my erin condren

  59. Jessie Mendoza
    / 4:25 pm

  62. Angelica O.
    / 2:53 pm

    I would buy one of the new focused planners because it’s perfect for my weight loss planning – logging meals, workouts and my overall wellness. Of course, I would use stickers and washi to keep me from getting bored with my tracking! Also, great review!
