This review is long past due. I’ve referred hundreds of people to Erin Condren, but never wrote a review on my Life Planner (I did write one about my old planner, a Plum Paper, if you wanted to check that out). Well, it’s time to change that!
College is the time where you go out on your own and develop your own routine. There is nobody hovering over you to make sure you get things done, it’s all on you now. But don’t stress, this doesn’t have to be difficult. It all comes down to how you handle this change, and I promise you that being organized makes college a lot easier! I’m pretty confident when I say I excel in organization, planning and time management (since everyone laughs at me for it), so I decided to share some of my organization tips and secrets to help make sure your college experience is nothing but smooth sailing.
I know that is an overwhelming amount of information but with a little practice, you’ll be an organized student in no time! If anyone has other student organization tips, feel free to comment and share! Good luck to everyone in school!
As promised, I am here to share my thoughts with you on my new planner for 2014.
I ordered it from Etsy.com from a company called Plum Paper Designs. They have a ton of choices for the cover so you’re able to find one that best suits you. They also have different types of planners: daily planners, family planners, student planners, wedding planners and more. I chose the regular daily planner because even though I’m a student, I use my planner to keep track of everything I need to get done that week, not just work for classes. It took a decent amount of time to arrive, but it was worth the wait. If you want to get to the point and not read the full review, just know this is a great alternative to the Erin Condren Life Planners. The Life Planners cost between $50 – $75, which is crazy, especially for a college student. The Plum Paper Planner only costs $30. Alright, so let’s take it section by section.
When it arrived, it was packaged very well in order to maintain its quality. It came in a foil to protect it from any scuff marks that could possibly occur throughout the delivery process. My face lit up when I saw how beautiful it was, as well as the fact that it’s my first planner I ever owned that was customized uniquely for me.
Here it is without the foil around it. Isn’t it beautiful? It also matches my laptop case I also purchased from Etsy so I’m excited about that.
