The School Planner

For my sister and me, finding the perfect planner is as essential to starting fall semester as finding the most flattering Victoria's Secret bathing suit is to the start of pool season. As it should be. In a way, finding the right planner can either make or break your sanity for the next year. You might think it an overstatement, but after years of trial and error I have found that being able to visualize and plan out days, weeks and months is a key strategy for productivity.

This year, I am happy to report that I have found my perfect planner and I would love to share it with all of you incase it can help shorten your search.

Introducing my brand new 2013-2014 Erin Condren planner! (complete with bows & personalization)

Adorable packaging

Fresh out of the box!

That's me! I chose the bow design, but on Erin Condren's website there are a ton more to choose from. You can even personalize the cover with pictures of friends and family!

First page gives space for birthdays/anniversary's so you'll never forget the important ones.

Next page gives the full year layout

The start of each month includes a large monthly layout, with important holidays included. There's also an inspirational quote at the top for those days we need an extra lift and on the side of the month there is a column for notes.

I LOVE this layout! Every week is divided Monday through Sunday and every day is divided up into morning, day and night. This allows you to plan the day out so much easier then traditional planners, it also has the perfect amount of space so that you won't run out of room. On the left-hand side there is a column for your weekly goals so you can pick something to work on each week. There's even a healthy living column at the bottom of each week where you can jot down things like meal plans, exercise plans and other thoughts.

At the back there are three pages of stickers that you can use on birthday's, to remind your of hair/doctor appointments and more!

There's also a pouch, perfect for storing pens, that includes more personalized stickers.
