I am a planner. Through and through. Lists, schedules, and calendars make me happy. I was a bit skeptical of Erin Condren Planners, when I first heard about them. Then Amber ordered one and I brought it to her when we ran the marathon together last fall (it was crazy expensive to ship it to Canada, so she had it shipped to me!) - and I was sold on it. From the pretty packaging to the layout of the planner - I loved it.
Now, these planners do come with a bit of a hefty price tag... They tend to be $50, so about $60 with shipping. Last year I used a $10 off coupon and so paid $50 between the planner + shipping - and it was worth every cent. Yes, $50 may seem like a lot to pay for a planner... but I use it. Every day. I am going to geek out and turn all financy on you - considering the fact that I use it daily, the cost/use is about $.14. Yep. Less than a quarter/day. Or think of it as a latte/month. They are about $4-5 these days, so instead of having a latte a month, you could have something tangible - a beautiful planner.
This year I did luck out and I scored a $25 for $50 of Erin Condren products groupon through Plum District. So I paid about $35 for my planner - again, well worth the money spent.
Here are some pictures to give those who are unfamiliar with the product an idea of what it looks like!

I am not at all compensated for doing this post. I've never received any free products from Erin Condren. I just happen to be very passionate about my love of her planners! If you want to check them out, here is her website!
