Today I unboxed my beautiful new Erin Condren planner! In this post and video, I’m sharing my Erin Condren Planner Review.
I’ve been using these gorgeous weekly planners for years now and you may have read my previous Erin Condren reviews. For the past couple of planners, I’ve opted for the Neutral color scheme but this time, I went with an Inspire colorful LifePlanner and I LOVE the design, bright and bold colors.
And wait til you see the coil!!
Erin Condren Planner Review: 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 Life Planner Review
Full review below – and watch the flip through video here of my previous Erin Condren unboxing to get a good idea of the LifePlanners:
The Erin Condren Life Planner is a coiled vertical weekly planner that has plenty of space each day for list-makers like me.
I opted for the rose gold foil – you can also chose a metal or colorful Aspire coil.
If you’re a big sticker user, I recommend choosing a 12-month planner (I always decorate my planner with Erin Condren stickers!) because the stickers can make the planner a bit too bulky by the end of the year!
Speaking of stickers, multiple sheets are included in the back – packed with bright and foiled stickers to choose from.
You can check out my own range of Erin Condren planner stickers at my Etsy store, Paper Planner Club by clicking here.
The Erin Condren vertical layout planner works brilliantly for me as I love to use list-making to stay organized.
Being able to check off my To-Do list gives me ultimate satisfaction throughout the day to know I’m staying on top of what needs to get done. If you want to know how I plan my week, click here.
The paper quality is as high as always – thick and smooth paper with that’s a pleasure to write on with my trusty FriXion pens.
In the Erin Condren welcome pack is a welcome note, affirmation cards, stickers, gift tags and discount codes for you and a friend to use.
Erin Condren covers can be swapped out as many times as you like but I tend to stick the same one throughout the year – do you stick or swap?
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.

The Erin Condren Perpetual Planner
Tucked into the back is the super useful Perpetual Planner. It’s a mini planner to record events that repeat every year, such as birthdays, so you can transfer them easily to your new planner at the start of next year.
If you’re looking for anything from a cute daily planner, custom daily planner to a life goal planner, the EC range has you covered! A LifePlanner purchase also includes an Erin Condren welcome pack pouch.

Amazing! What are the dimensions on the monthly spread boxes.
Ooh yes they are 4.1cm wide by 3.5 cm high :) x
Thank you! This article was just what I was looking for. Just wondering, why wouldn’t you change your sticker sizes?
So glad it helped! I ended up changing some of my new stickers although because EC sometimes change the sizing of their planner boxes, it isn’t practical to always change my stickers :) x
Thanks! What are the dimensions of the notes section on the left hand side?
I think 1.85″ wide by 7.6″ tall under the month name :)
