Meet the Sullivans: 2011-12 Life Planner!

2011-12 Life Planner!

On Friday I came home to find this on the doorstep...It's my Erin Condren life planner! The packaging is so special--I wish all companies would make their packages so eye catching.

I ordered this Life Planner after seeing so many people with Erin's life planners, notepads (I have these owl ones at school on my desk), teacher plan books, calling cards, etc. The designs are really cute, but I'd been holding out on making a commitment to specific product until I could figure out what exactly it was that I would love the most.

I knew I would get a lot of use out of the teacher plan book, but I'll be leaving school in December to stay home with Tiny Baby (aka Baby Sullivan), so buying a new plan book for 2 months didn't make sense.

So, because I am always looking for new ways to stay organized and on top of my semi-busy schedule, I decided to buy the life planner. I'm so glad I did cause I already feel a little more in control of my life and that is always a good feeling :)

I also ordered the matching notebooks that coordinate with the planner and slip nicely into the pocket in the back. They included a sample of gift labels too (above)!

Even though I will be the main only person using this planner, I will be keeping track of my schedule, Keith's and in a short while Tiny Baby's schedule too, SO I went with our family name on the cover instead of just mine--since we don't know yet if the baby will be a boy or girl, and subsequently don't know the name.

I like the quotes that pop up every month. The fonts and colors are so fun.

The planner is great for weekly planning, but also has sections for long term planning.

In the weekly planning section there is a space for weekly goals and to do's as well as sections that allow for morning, day and evening scheduling.

Here is that handy pocket for I was telling you about. There is also another pocket on the other side where I'm keeping coupons ( for groceries, baby stuff and the one Erin sent for $10 off my next order) and things. Behind the pocket fold there is a plastic insert zip lock thingy for keeping other items you want to keep handy.

Over the weekend I spent some quality time with my new life planning buddy inputting all the important dates and to do's. I bought some fancy colorful and important looking pens.

It feels so good to be organized.

Now, what should I order with my $10 off coupon?

I'm linking up with Jaimie today for What I'm Loving Wednesday
