Stay Organized, Write it Down in your LifePlanner™!

eric condren life planner

Maybe it’s old school but I have to write everything- single- thing down. From my grocery list to appointments to travel. I mean, sure I know how to use my phone apps too, but mostly, I need to see it on paper. Here’s an example of why this is critical to my simple existence: I could go to the grocery store to buy ingredients for rice krispy treats and legit come home with out the rice krispy cereal if it isn’t written on the list. (insert eye roll)

Therefore, when I was invited to the Erin Condren LifePlanner™ event in Chicago, in regards to learning more about their signature product, a beautiful, personalized planner, I knew it was meant to be. They get me! This LifePlanner™ is a {write everything down} game changer.

Currently, I use a big ‘ol calendar that lays on the kitchen counter. Because of this and my need to see the schedule, my husband will actually make these types of announcements “I’m going to Memphis next Tuesday if you’d like to write it in the big calendar”.  Even my girlfriends know about this teasing I receive over the big calendar.

I know KN thinks it’s a bit old fashioned, since he does not drag a paper calendar around with him, however, I will find him standing at the kitchen counter looking at the schedule. Even my kids will do the same, to see what’s going on (or maybe actually to see when I am not going to be home….) Point being, it’s essential for not just me, but all of us.

Then last week came this LifePlanner™ in the mail. Mind blown. I had no idea that I could get excited to write down a Dr. appointment in a calendar! I love this thing! And since Erin Condren obviously gets me entirely, I am ordering this so I can actually set my planner in it on the counter!!! I think KN will be just as excited as me when he lays eyes on my creative, inspirational notes! Out with the old boring flat calendar, in with this beauty.



A few fabulous features of the LifePlanner™  are:

  • A personalized cover. There are so many choices that I had a hard time deciding! And guess what, the covers are actually interchangeable so you can have more than one!
  • Custom layout. Vertical, horizontal and even hourly.
  • Custom color interior, either brights or neutrals.
  • Blank pages for goals, lists or plain old doodling.
  • 4 pages of stickers
  • A folder and a zipper pouch

Stay organized

Additional accessory items on the website are also amazing and can enhance your calendar even more. It’s sort of like Hello Kitty for adults. I can remember shaking with excitement over crayons, stickers and little notebooks from the little Hello Kitty display. 

There are:


In conclusion ladies, if you like keeping your life organized, you need to get your hands on one of these gems. Use the code GETSOCIAL15 to receive 15% off of your purchase, valid now through July 31!  I can’t guarantee that the planner will help you get to your appointments on time, but I can guarantee that if you write it down, and highlight it with a sticker, you will at least know what day it’s on!

An interview with the owner of The Sono, a Chicago Bed and Breakfast

Are you aware that there are Bed and Breakfasts in big cities like Chicago? I was under the impression that a “B & B” is typically located in a quaint little town, in a historical area or maybe near a coast. Not until my girlfriend Kim quit her job and with her husband and brother,…
