Erin Condren Review + Giveaway!

Friday, January 10, 2014

If you follow me on Instagram (@ _darcyylynn_) then you saw this picture on New Year's Eve.


I was preparing for the new year by filling in my new Erin Condren Life Planner! If you have been looking for a new planner, you need to order this one! Not only can you personalize every aspect of the planner, but it also keeps you incredibly organized. I just discovered the brand in 2013. I wish I would have known about it in college because it would have been useful to keep track of my schoolwork, sorority requirements, dance company practices, etc. 

So, what makes this planner better than the rest? Honestly, I could go on and on. However, I decided to highlight the top 3 things I like about this planner vs. other planners.



1. Layout

I love the layout in this planner. You get to start each month with a look at the whole month. Then, within each week, the days are broken into "morning, day and night". I love this because it keeps tasks from getting all jumbled. I have OCD about organization and this helps me keep things for work separate from things for my social life. 

2. Stickers

Erin Condren planners come with fun stickers for you to use to categorize tasks. For example, there are stickers to use to mark birthdays, hair appointments, concerts, vacations. I like using stickers for things because it makes more important events (like say a dentist appointment) stand out.

3. Looks

The thing that made me want a life planner in the first place was the fact that the planner is so cute! I especially love that you can personalize your planner. You get to pick the cover design, what it says, and can even add personalized stickers. The planner then has different colors for each month and inspirational quotes to start the month off.

If you don't want a life planner, Erin Condren also sells other amazing paper products. I'm a fan of the stationarythe notepads, and the calendars. Be sure to use the widget below to vote for your favorite Erin Condren item!




Have I convinced you to buy one of these!? Well lucky for you, Erin Condren is so generously giving away a $25 gift card to a reader of A Memory of Us!  All you have to do to enter is fill out the rafflecopter below.

Thanks again to Erin Condren for sponsoring this awesome giveaway! Good luck!

I would love it if you would follow me on GFC or BlogLovin'!

  25. I've chosen my planner as early as last year. Haha! :D Yours is really cute too, I love that you can personalize it plus I'm also obsessed with stickers and post-its! LOL. And I guess that's one thing we have in common, we're both organized! Ahaha

    1. I saw the wedding planners!! I can't decide if they're really all that different from the life planner, though :(. I wish I would have seen them before I ordered my life planner, then I could have just have one of those!!

  35. I just got my planner for work, I wish I had known about this two days ago! Although I probably should get my own planner for every day... and this may have convinced me to do it. Right now! :) The planner is just so pretty...

  37. Darcy I am obsessed with Erin Condren! Hahah I was just telling Alex a couple weeks ago that I "needed to save up for a cute planner" for when I start Nursing school, but I would have to "wait until next Christmas".. he goes, "If it's going to take you a whole entire year to save up for a planner, how much does this dang planner cost!?" I said it's already half-way through January, it's too late to get one now. Hilar. I want either the collage planner or the one with bows. I hope I win! :)
