Erin Condren Life Planner 2015/2016

I have been eyeing Erin Condren Life Planner since January 2015.  The planner looks so pretty and it has a simple system. I have been obsess with watching Plan With Me youtube channel and I am very determine to get one for myself. I originally planned to buy this planner for 2016 since currently I already have Filofax planner and iPlanner (iPad version) for 2015.

Then in July, Erin Condren launched it's 2015/2016 planner with an option for vertical layout, I was totally excited. I am used to vertical design and I like planning my week with vertical design. I decided to give this planner a chance and see what the hype is all about. 

Since this is my first time ordering from Erin Condren, I just choose the ready to ship design without any customisation.  A week later I received this planner without any problem.

My first impression
-) the planner is so beautiful. I don't think I will decorate this planner more than necessary. 
-) I love the color
-) I like the inspiration quotes on the first page of every month
-) I need to buy a smaller puncher if I want to add things up in this planner. My current puncher is too big for this

To be honest when I purchased this planner I have no idea what I am going to do with it. I have been back and forth between using this as my daily planner, a diary, work planner or home planner.

I tried using this planner at work but somehow it doesn't fit perfectly with my current setup. I am not too excited with the lack of flexibility to rearrange the planner and adding things up. I know that there's a few tutorial on youtube on how to move this planner into Kikki K binder or Filofax binder, it's just too much hassle for me (the beginner) to do it. 

As of last week I decided to use the Erin Condren planner for my workout schedule, blog schedule and my personal to do lists. 

I am going to see how this works for me. Keeping different part of my life separated like this is going to be a challenge because I am used to things being all in one place. I wanted this to work for me and I hope that it does. I don't want to waste this pretty planner.

Apparently I need more time to adjust to Erin Condren Life Planner setup. Trying things out and see what works for me. I welcome any suggestion that you might have. I sure do need a lot of help with this planner.

I think if this is my first planner before I used binder system, I might enjoy it more. Check out Erin Condren planner and get $10 off on your first purchased.

I have been actively involved with Project Life system since 2013. I usually make my layout using Adobe Photoshop on my computer. Since late 2014, I have been using Project Life app on my phone and I was totally hooked! Love the app so much

For 2015, I decided to do all my project life layouts using the Project Life app. Do all the things that I love right on my phone.

Take a looked at my layouts for the first two quarters of the year. This is usually the time when i assembled all of my layouts and make a photo book.

(disclaimer: 90% of these layouts were made using Project Life app. The other 10% were made using Project Life template and Adobe Photoshop on my computer)

WOW! What a ride?! So many thing happened in the last six months and I am just getting started. I am feeling kinda nostalgic while writing this post and seeing all of these layouts at one place. All those feelings and memories rushing back like it just happened yesterday. 

I hope this will inspire you to cultivate a good life and record it. It's totally worth it. Life is short. Record them.

What's in your project life for 2015?
