Hi. My name is Victoria, and I’m addicted to my ERIN CONDREN LIFE PLANNER. (This post isn’t even sponsored. I’m just obsessed.)
A little while ago, I stumbled across one of these bad boys in the checkout aisle of a HomeGoods. I had been desperately wanting one since 2015, but never had the motivation to actually buy one (they seemed expensive at the time. Now in hindsight, you really do get what you pay for. EC’s brand is SO professional and well-done. It was worth every. single. penny.)
So, there it was- propped up against a bottle of French soap, alone and abandoned. I bought it. Oh… my… god. I don’t know if it’s because I’m a mom now, but I’m seriously ALL ABOUT planning.
Little naive me; I had no idea that there was such a huge following for #ECLP. Erin Condren is a massive brand that not only sells the BEST planners, but stickers, address books, calendars, meal planners, post-its, markers…
I need to calm down.
How My Life Planner Changed My Life

Okay- so that may be a bit of a dramatic statement. But using my life planner has actually improved my mental health. How? Oh, I’m glad you asked, my fine feathered-friend.
Routines decrease depression. They get you out of bed in the morning. Routines provide familiarity and comfort. By writing down small to-do lists and completing them each day, you’re increasing your own dopamine! Mind blown.
Each morning, I get up and write down what my goals for the day are. Before I go to sleep, I look back on my handy planner and feel accomplished and proud of myself. For someone who struggles with a mental disorder, this feeling is big for me.
Also, you’ll notice that I track my anxiety and depression each day. This small step has allowed me to track my moods each day and week.
Take a Look Inside!
This is my planner. I’ve ordered stickers to make it my own. I’m in love with me & my BIG ideas stickers because they’re inexpensive, high-quality, and have a sticker for pretty much anything I can think of. Of course, I also love EC stickers, too, because they are beautiful.
But WAIT! There’s MORE!
The BEST thing about these particular planners are they can be TOTALLY customized at NO extra cost to you. You can even add collages on the front cover of yours! Seriously!? What’s not to love!
If you’re into planning like I am, feel free to follow my Instagram for more layout ideas. I’d love to see yours, too!
Happy Planning, everyone!
