I was finally able to make a decision on which layout (and planner!) I wanted to have and I chose the 2016 Erin Condren Life Planner with the Horizontal Weekly Layout! Last year was my first time using the Erin Condren Life Planner – a friend of mine introduced me to it, and actually I found out that SO many of my friends use it.
Check out my unboxing video for the 2016 Erin Condren Life Planner
There are 3 layouts available now: vertical, horizontal, and hourly. I decided to go with the horizontal layout because I really like the unlined box included each day of the week, and even though I know that the space isn’t that different, to me it just FEELS like there is so much more room. I also enjoy not having the morning/afternoon/evening headers, but that’s not a huge deal. I was thinking about going with the hourly layout, but I think the days go from 6am – 7pm? And I often have appointments or schedule items before and after those times. I may just have a wild, weird schedule!
The colors are totally different this year from last year, so I’ll be redoing all my stickers – and since my weekly chore sticker needs to be redesigned anyhow with the horizontal layout, it won’t be too bad. I’ll be on the lookout for the hexadecimal color codes in the ECLP fan community to help out with making sure my colors are coordinated.
I seriously LOVE the color coordination throughout the planner. I was a little surprised to see that the Perpetual calendar didn’t have the same colors per month, but it’s not really a big deal.
I really enjoy the fonts this year, a bit more than last year, I think. Having the graph paper between the lined and unlined note pages is also very exciting for me. I’m such a nerd.
So – there you go! I’m really looking forward to figuring out how I’m going to do my weekly layouts this year! I adore shopping for planner supplies on Etsy, so I’ll be making a roundup of my favorite stores coming up soon.
