Erin Condren LifePlanner
There's nothing like the feeling of starting a new planner.
Whether you're a time management nerd or a total newbie, opening up a new planner can make you feel like the future is full of fantastic possibilities.
If you really want to treat yourself, investing in an Erin Condren LifePlanner is the perfect tool for managing your time, and staying motivated to work towards your goals.
The lovely team at Erin Condren offered me one of their latest LifePlanners to try out, and I couldn't be more excited to share it with you!
My Erin Condren LifePlanner Review
This year I chose a LifePlanner with the Mid Century Circles outline design, and a matching rose gold coil.
Last year I used a LifePlanner Binder, and it made me really appreciate and miss the high-quality coils. To me a coiled planner is SO MUCH easier to use. I like being able to turn the pages quickly, and have the planner open to just one page at a time.
If you're an Erin Condren veteran, you won't see any huge changes from previous versions.
The quality of the planner, thick paper, stickers, and beautiful designs are what keep people coming back to Erin Condren planners year after year.
18 Month Erin Condren Life Planner
This year I decided to try out an 18-month LifePlanner.
I was concerned that it would be too thick compared to a 12-month planner.
And while it is thicker than the 12-month version, the coil is also slightly larger.
I didn't really notice a difference until I placed my new 18-month planner next to my 12-month LifePlanner from 2020.
When creating your own LifePlanner you can choose between a vertical layout (shown above), an hourly layout, or a horizontal layout.
I don't think one type of layout is inherently better than any of the others – it's really a matter of personal preference.
I've used hourly and vertical planning layouts for years, so I naturally visualize my weekly plans vertically.
The new vertical layout design for the LifePlanner has an updated design on the left page, but it's very similar to previous designs.
One of my favorite things about the vertical design is when you change from one month to the next in the same week, and you can see the color differentiation between the two months.
Those kinds of details are what make this planner special!
I do wish that the left page would be for Monday through Thursday, and the right page would be Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and notes.
Maybe someday they'll make this change?

The coiled planner is 7″x9″.
My 18-month planner is about 1 1/4 inches thick.
If you order a 12-month planner, it will likely be about 1 inch thick.
