Write it Out:Planners

Hey y'all,

I am obsessed with organization and one of my favorite parts of organization is organizing my life whether a to-do list or my color-coded planner.

Now last year I used a Lilly Pulitzer large agenda that I loved but I feel like my life after graduation does not follow the same large spaces with lines fr class assignments. Upon gaining a "job" I expect my planner to be more for social events:lunches, trips, etc. so I feel as if I would be wasting the space of a Lilly planner. If I was continuing my education in grad school this would be my first choice again since it is such a fun and colorful agenda.You can find this year's designs here or here
Last Year's Model
So here are some options for next years model.

Gallery Leather.
sCe of Summer Wind had a bad customer service experience she wrote here about Gallery Leather planners. I like the idea of the  Leather Family Planner with days blocked out by hours but I feel that this might feel constricting after a while. I however do like the professional look to the planner and the option to customize it with your name or monogram.
Graphic Image. and Moleskine make similar planners.

Erin Condren.
Currently the front-runner of my search to find a planner. Erin Condern life planners are sectioned off in day, midday, and evening for each day. While that has never made sense for my life before I like the freedom it allows. I also love the goals and to-do list section of every week. It's a great way to stay on track as well as the updated features this one is looking great. I feel that the ability to personalize it as well as the colorful aspiring quotes are appropriate for my transition to the "real world" while also having a dash of my personality too. What I am currently thinking is the life planner in taffy with navy and a shade of pink stripes with my name on it. Thoughts? Have you had a life planner? pro/cons?

Any other suggestions of planners I should check out?

Peace and Blessings,


  1. I personally have had great experiences with EC planners. I have one now, and I don't plan on ever having anything else!

  2. I love my Lilly agenda, but I think I would switch to an Erin Condren design once this once needs to be replaced.

  3. I blogged about this a few weeks ago, and I think I'm going to go with an EC one for this fall!

    P.S. Thanks so much for the follow! Have a fabulous day!

  4. I love planners, and I get really excited when the new ones are released at Office Max. But, now I feel I must jump on the EC bandwagon!

  5. I don't have any suggestions but after this post I am thinking I might need to get a planner. In the past I have just remembered what I had to do but now I am starting to forget things. I have two little boys so it is difficult to remember if I at lunch, ha ha! I like the look of that leather one though. That would be a good gift item!

  6. I love my EC life planner! I don't know how I functioned without it before! I highly recommend it! I can't wait to order my 2013 planner! :)

  7. Wonderful blog & good post.Its really helpful for me, awaiting for more new post. Keep Blogging!
