Every year about this time, I resume my quest for the perfect planner. I thought I found it already, but as my requirements for a planner changes, so does the perfect-for-me calendar. I’ve been oogling the Erin Condren planners from Tiny Prints for a while, so they sent me one to review. There were so many beautiful designs to choose from, but I opted for Fleur Felize Weekly Life Planner (affiliate links). It’s very me, don’t you think?
As you know, I’m a big fan of Tiny Prints products. I’ve gotten business cards and photo greeting cards from them. They have fun, creative designs and produce high quality products. I made a short video to show you what the inside pages look like, plus how I’m using my weekly planner:
I’ve been using my Erin Condren planner for about a month now and I’m very pleased with it. Keep in mind that I’m using the paper planner to keep track of my blogging editorial calendar, my work to-do list, and track how much time I put in for my consulting gigs. I keep our family calendar on Google calendar so my husband can easily access it.
The 7×9″ wirebound planner is colorful and beautifully designed. Using pretty things makes life more exciting, doesn’t it? The monthly calendar is a two-page spread which gives me ample room to plan my editorial calendar for both this blog and From Left to Write. Each week is also spread over two pages. Each day is given three sections: morning, day, night. Though they’re labeled as such, you can use them however you’d like. I one for each blog and one for my consulting jobs. There’s also room to take notes and make to-do lists.
The planner cover is laminated and the coil is made of thick wire. It will hold up to 18 months of use. There’s a notes section that I use when I’m on conference calls; a plastic zippered pocket; stickers; and more. It’s very well made. Tiny Prints offers Erin Condren planners in a weekly format (like mine) or a monthly version. There’s many designs to choose from that you can customize with your name, initials or a favorite photo.
