Hey friends! It’s almost July, which means the new Erin Condren Life Planner begins soon! If you don’t have your planner yet, be sure to order ASAP so you can dive in during the month of July and not miss out on using part of your planner! I ordered two life planners to share with you, and along with all the photos, I filmed a flip through video too, kind of comparing the two planners that I picked up side by side. I got a colorful and a neutral layout so I could share both of those, and then I chose to get the vertical layout, and then my neutral planner is in the hourly layout. I feel like those two options are most popular, so you would enjoy getting a look at both. Hopefully, if you are torn on which planner layout to purchase, this will give you a little clarity.

I got the two featured covers with this year’s kaleidoscope theme for both of my planners. I feel like these planners are a lot different this year- not just the differences between the colorful and neutral, but lots of changes in each planner in general. If you’d like to watch my video flip through, you can do that below-
Our first stop on this planner tour is the first quote pages. Here you can see a good example of the different color styles. Then, one thing that is the same from last year, each month has a notes page before the tab divider.
For something that is new and updated this year, and probably most exciting update is this productivity page and dashboard that is included for each month!
You can see that the colorful layout has a blank dashboard with lots of colorful detail, while the neutral has a dot grid page.
Then, here’s the monthly layouts. I love that the neutral is so open. I know that there isn’t any more space, but it definitely makes my brain think that there is. I’m just not a huge fan of these “neutral” colors that are used with this color style.
Next, you can see how the weekly layouts are different. I know a lot of people were not happy about the changes to the classic vertical layout, but I personally don’t mind them at all. Part of me is itching to use the vertical for my business planning this year, but I’m not sure if that’s the plan I’ll stick with yet, or not.
Then, another new thing for this year, the stickers are customized depending on your layout. Previously, each color style included the same bright colored stickers, but if you get the neutral color style, you’ll get these gorgeous matching stickers!
Finally, we have the back pockets.
There you have it! The new 2019-2020 Erin Condren Life Planner! Of course, there is a horizontal layout as well, for those who love that style of planning. I just knew I’d be more likely to use the vertical or hourly layouts for my business.
What are your thoughts on the new layouts? Have you gotten your Life Planner for this year?
