EC Planner Review

Okay, I know that I'm not the first one to go out and buy something because of a great review I'd heard/seen on another blog.

Well, this is another one of those cases. I totally jumped on the Erin Condren bandwagon, and I'm NOT ashamed to admit it. ;)

When I first heard that people were buying these planners for $50, I was shocked. I couldn't imagine spending $50 on a paper planner. So as much as I liked the way it looked and loved that it could be personalized, I still wasn't ready to take the plunge.

When Savanah tweeted about a $25 off coupon, I didn't even think twice about ordering. Seriously, I read her tweet and had confirmed my purchase within 20 minutes.

I anxiously awaited the arrival of my fabulous planner for 2 whole weeks! When it finally arrived, I was ECSTATIC to say the least.

Even the packaging was cute!

Such pretty colors and extra goodies that the EC team was so kind to throw in.

Do you hear the angels singing? ;)

My "oh-my-god-i-can't-believe-it's-finally-here-i'm-so-freakin'-excited" face!

I know all of you who have one already share my overjoyment. (so not a word)

Those of you who haven't taken the plunge, and those who don't understand the hype - yeah, I'm talking to YOU Meg ;) are probably asking, "What does this planner have that the others don't?"

Well, obviously it's personalized. It's VERY colorful and exciting. I'd have to say that my favorite part is that the days are separated out into morning, day and night as opposed to one block for the whole day, or times. There's also plenty of room to write/doodle/jot things down in too. There's extra pockets in the back for loose receipts and papers AND it comes with STICKERS! (clearly that excites me)

After having the planner in my hands and going through it all, I can say that I totally see why it's worth the $50, but I sure am glad I got my discount. :)

Haha thanks for the shout out, silly head. I am still on the fence.... I just think it's not worth it for me right now.

BUT! (sorry, I wasn't finished commenting although I accidentally pushed the submit button) I'm so glad that you love it and will use it!

I am waiting on mine! I ordered last Wednesday and can't wait for it to get here. I too took the plunge after a bloggy friend sent me a code to get 25.00 off. The 50 had me really on the fence but once she sent me the code to get 25.00 off, I ordered! I think if it had 2 full years, I'd pay 50. But it was only the remaining months of 2011 and all of 2012 so I felt that it should have been 25 to begin with. So glad you love your planner. I originally liked the one you picked but ended up choosing the hearts one. :)

Im still debating on whether or not I should buy one, because I really dont think I need it, but they are so darn pretty!! Love yours girl!

Jessica said...

I'm so jealous! I can't bring myself to spend the full $50 but absolutley adore these planners. Maybe one day I'll just cave. And I totally heard the angels singing...thats the way it is for me when I get a new planner!

Heather said...

I'm still off the bandwagon with Meg. I have color coded calendars on my phone. I need pop up reminders or I would never make it anywhere! haha

Ashleigh said...

Yours is so pretty!! It's totally amazing, but thank God for the $25 coupon or I wouldn't have gotten it. Lol

I'm still debating on getting one. The $50 price is what has stopped me from getting one too.
