Planner Love!

Ok, to some this post will be ridiculous. In a sense, it is ridiculous.


I am in love... with my new Erin Condren Life Planner! Oh, the joyous love!!

Let me tell you the story!

I saw everyone on Twitter talking about this day planner. I really didn't know what all the hype was about. So of course I looked it up and that is when the infatuation began.

I really could not see spending $50 on a planner, unless it were to write itself as well as cook me dinner. I am just too stingy for that. But I saw on an email where Plum District (one of those daily coupon sites) was offering $50 store credit for $25. I definitely thought it was more doable. Plus, I found a coupon that made the total $20. So I bought the coupon and then went to work on picking out and personalizing my planner. I found another coupon for $10 dollars off the Erin Condren site. (The shipping itself was $10, so it was basically free shipping!) So I placed my order and was counting down the days til it shipped.

A few days later I got an email that the E.C. site had been hacked and they had lost the thousands of orders that had been placed. Of course mine was one of them. So I quickly placed my order again (using the coupons) and waited a week for it to ship.

It arrived today! To say I was giddy about this thing when I saw the box was an understatement. I quickly opened the package and ooohh'ed and aawww'ed over how pretty it was, how functional it was, etc.

Here are some pictures of my planner! Sorry for the poor quality, I took them at night with my phone.

They even included some nifty paperclips along with some sample gift tags! That will probably be my next purchase! It includes numerous pockets along with a pouch to store things in. Very, very clever! The tabs also make it very easy when flipping through the months.

If you would like to order a planner, One Kings Lane is offering a $50 gift card for $25. The deal ends tomorrow at 10am CDT. Enter WELCOME10 at the EC website when you order to get an additional $10 savings! 

And just because this boy makes me laugh... Never a dull moment with us!



  1. I'm thinking Christmas present for my mom... You know where I can get a coupon? Plum district is expired!
