Erin Condren Life Planner 2016 | A Preview (+ Discount Code)

I recently placed an order with Erin Condren for a new life planner and a few accessories.  I wanted to share a little peek at the design I got and some of the new features the life planner offers.

I chose the "favorite things" cover, which is a list you create and upload to the EC website when placing your order.  You can also add two lines of text vertically, so I chose my first name and my blog name, since I use this planner primarily as my editorial calendar.  

As always, there is an extended outlook calendar at the front of the planner so you have all of 2016 and 2017 at a glance for long term planning.  

Erin Condren life planners now have three weekly layouts to choose from:  the standard vertical with the three blocks in "morning", "day" and "night"; the horizontal where the calendar is laid out across the page and the new hourly layout, with your day broken down into half hour blocks from 6:00 am to 7:00 pm.  I chose the hourly layout, as I preferred to plan out more specifically in time intervals.

The Notes section has been revised for the new 2016 life planners and feature little flags that act as bullet points on the page, allowing you to make lists or break your notes up into categories.  

Like the previous life planners, this version comes with a double sided pocket folder to keep loose papers in, as well as a zippered pouch full of free goodies from Erin Condren.

One of my favorite freebies in this year's planner is a sample sheet of the "do-it-all dots" - little circular stickers with symbols on them to indicate specific appointments and other events you'd need to mark in your calendar.

Here's a closer look at the cover design I chose.  These covers are interchangeable, meaning you can tear them off and replace them with new ones as often as you'd like.  Some planners enjoy having a new cover for each month of the year.

The 2016 version of the Erin Condren life planner definitely tops previous years calendars.  There are quite a few new features that makes them the best yet.
