Smorgasbord Sundays: How I Decorate My Erin Condren Life Planner

Erin Condren Life Planner Decorating IdeasRemember back in July, I shared with you how excited I was to purchase my first Erin Condren Life Planner?

Well, I’ve been using the Erin Condren Life Planner ever since it arrived, and although I mainly use it for function, I also like to spruce up the pages by decorating them a bit. I don’t do anything wild or crazy – I keep it really simple, and I try to leave as much space for writing as possible because I literally fill up pretty much every blank section with words. (Hehe, I am passionate about writing, as you may know!)

I usually like to switch up how I use washi tape to cover up the “Morning”, “Day”, and “Night” sections, as well as add a border, but lately, I’ve been really digging this simple and straightforward approach, which you’ll see in the photos.

Also, you’ll notice that I added a vertical line with the washi tape to divide the weekdays from the weekends. It makes it easier for me to organize my week.

In today’s Smorgasbord Sundays post, I’ll show you How I Decorate My Erin Condren Planner! 🙂

The other day, I got my hands on some skinny washi tape in lots of fun colours, and I picked up a few new stickers.

(I was really excited to find some Hallowe’en stickers from Michael’s, and I scooped up a book of them. Hehe, so in this post, you’ll also see some pages for October! Yeah, I don’t normally plan that far, but hey, Hallowe’en is my favourite holiday!) 😉

If you decorate your planner, please tell me about some of your ideas. I love seeing people get creative and show off their personality in fun and colourful ways!

Smorgasbord Sundays: Erin Condren Life Planner 2014/2015 & Accessories

Erin Condren Life Planner 2014 & 2015In June, I pre-ordered the new Erin Condren Life Planner 2014/2015, and I opted for the 18-month version that runs July 2014 through December 2015.

It was a major splurge for me because the Erin Condren Life Planner I purchased is $50 USD. (Yeah, my wallet felt the burn like thighs on a StairMaster!) And it was an extra $5 to get the 18-month version instead of the 12-month version (January 2015 to December 2015).

You can customize your Erin Condren Life Planner to include a lot of bells of whistles, and that’s the advantage of purchasing it compared to a generic kind. This allows for greater self expression.

It has been since university that I used a planner, and now that things are getting really busy for me, I thought it was worth the investment in not only a practical planner, but one that also looks really nice. This is the Rolls Royce of planners, and considering that I intend to use this on a daily basis, I can justify the high price tag.

I’ve been going through a lot of traumatic personal things, and having this planner helps me to look forward to a bright future. It’s my little piece of optimistic sunshine that’s a daily reminder. To me, it represents more than just a way to organize my work, personal, blogging, and other schedules. It symbolizes the fact that I am setting goals to work toward to build and improve my skills and my perspective. Even when life throws curve balls at you, it’s up to you to turn things around and rise above.

This blog post contains tons of photos of the planner I chose to customize, as well as some Erin Condren and non-Erin-Condren accessories that I purchased to use with it.
