Recently I purchased my very first Erin Condren planner, and I posted on social media about it. Instantly I had people commenting to tell about why they love it, and how much it was going to rock my world. I’ve gotta tell you, I’ve had it just a few days, and I’m already pretty stoked!
1. It comes in a pretty box
Forgive the smudgies… it did come through the mail, which tends grime things up a bit. But isn’t it nice getting pretty mail? I love any company that makes me happy before opening their stuff… like Ipsy* or Photojojo.
2. Great customer service
I’d heard that there are bonuses that they give to first time orders… but I signed up on her list ages ago, and no longer have my code. So I emailed them, and within 24 hours they’d already gotten back to me with the info I needed.
3. Arrived reasonably quickly
I used to hear horror stories about how long it would take to arrive. Apparently that is no longer the case, unless you’re ordering from overseas. Yay!
4. It’s got my name on it
There’s just something about personalized items…
5. And a pretty cover (that I picked)
Isn’t that lace pretty?
6. You can switch covers
Not that I really think I will, but it’s nice to know I have the option. 😀
7. It came with pretty stickers
I love that it even comes with a sticker to remind you to vote… it’s a patriotic planner! 😀
8. You can order more stickers on Etsy
Go type Erin Condren stickers into the search box of Etsy, and you’ll be met with a smörgåsbord of options. Look out for an upcoming post where I tell you what I settled on!
9. You can pick between colorful pages or black & white
I went with black and white, because I know that between stickers, gel pens, and washi tape, I’ll have plenty of color in there. But if you prefer to have a color background, and write in black, they’ve got that option too!
10. It has inspirational watercolor-style pages
I love this so much…. any planner that has pretty little pick-me-ups through out it, will definitely grab my attention. It’s one of the things that drew me to Happy Planners too!
11. There’s a big community on Instagram
Okay this is a more minor benefit, but still… when you post pics to Instagram, it’s nice to know that there are thriving hashtags in place.
12. There’s a monthly calendar AND a weekly 2-page spread
I love the ability to write my very “at a glance” sort of things in the month, and then dive into the details for the week!
13. Plenty of writing space
I love that it has lots of room to write, and the paper is thick enough that I can use gel pen. I have run into issues with that, in other planners.
And now for the fun part!
