Staying Organized with Erin Condren

at
staying-organized-with-erin-condren

I love all things organization and productivity! For Christmas, I used to ask Santa to bring me school supplies —pens, notebooks, and folders got me hyped! I’ve kept a planner since I was a freshman in high school and I largely credit them for helping me keep my shit together. 

Now that I’m in the workforce I’ve decided to step up my organization game. Besides blogging, I work for the CW television station in Raleigh as a Multimedia Journalist. My day consists of running around between shoots, writing stories,  promoting our shows, planning promotional events, etc. A very busy boss babe needs a life planner that can keep up with her every need!  

That’s why I love Erin Condren’s life planners. I’ve tried numerous planners but Erin Condren’s life planner is by far the best. With the life planner, I feel like I’ve taken back control of my life! 

The EC life planner is 7×9 and fits perfectly in my purse. That way I always have it on me. Plus gives you plenty of room to write, doodle, and make lists! My favorite thing about the planner is that it contains 18 months.

The planner also includes

-one stunning vellum overlay sheet
-one designer cover page
-two-page opening quote spread
-two-page 2017/2018 “mini month” spread
-two page goal setting spread
-two-page monthly calendar
-weekly spreads for each week of the month
-four pages of lined pages
-four pages of dot grid pages
-four pages of coloring book pages
-4 sheets of coiled-in stickers
-two-page 2019 mini month overview
-one ending quote page
-one “keep it together” folder
-one “plan for it” pouch with goodies

One of my favorite things about being organized is all the cute office supplies you can find! If you purchase cute essentials, you’ll be more likely to want to use them. I love using stickers and various colors in my planner. 

Along with the planner, Erin Condren gifted me stickers and colored markers. The sticker book is filled with gorgeous metallics, quotes, and inspirational sayings. You can design your Erin Condren life planner to be unique… like you!

Each page is a new possibility to spread positivity! 

Besides planning, I use my life planner to make grocery lists, write down my goals for the month, and adhere to a weekly cleaning schedule. Every morning when I get into the office, I start my day by creating a to-do list. That way I know what tasks are a priority and I am more productive.

I also think it’s important to write down goals for the month. Creating personal, health, and work goals will help keep you motivated. I wanted to share some of my own goals for the month of November with ya’ll:

  1. wake up at 7 am

    I love my Erin Condren planner so much, especially to keep up with everything that I want to get done. My goals for the month of November is to upload at least 15-20 videos to my Youtube channel, post 10 blog posts on my blog, reach 600 followers on Pinterest, and make some kind of income from my blog. I also want to grow my email list to 1,000 subscribers.
