Hey planner friends, I’m back today with a look at the new Erin Condren Daily Duo planner for 2020-2021! I’m so excited to share this with you, I filmed this video probably over a month ago when I first received the planner. It begins this week on July 1st, so I’ve already started planning in it, and I am pretty positive that this may be my ONLY planner going forward. While I love the Happy Planner and my “frankenplanner/transformer planner” I’ve set up with those, I’m just not using it like I thought I would be, and in an effort to simplify what I’m doing, I’m thinking this might be what is going to happen with my planner systems. I’ll have an update on that soon, plus a way that I’m totally customizing my Erin Condren planners for what I need.

Okay, so of course I filmed a video of me going through this planner, which you can see below, but let’s get into it. If you are looking to get more details you can get your own Daily Duo Life Planner, here.
Okay so when you order the Daily Duo, it comes in two planner books, roughly the size of what a regular planner from Erin Condren would be. That’s because these planners hold 6 months each of the daily planner.
You can see here the first book in my set goes from July-December 2020. Then, the 2nd book goes from January-June 2021.
This planner has the same extra pages as the regular Life Planner, but they’re condensed for just the 6 month time period of the book, so you get 6 of these blocks that are perfect for goal setting, and a 6 month calendar overview.
Then, the next page has a whole yearly overview for the next year ahead (in this case 2021), and then you are into your dividers and daily pages for each month.
When you flip the divider page it goes directly to the monthly view.
After the monthly view, you have a lined notes page and a dashboard for the month.
After the dashboard, you flip right into the daily pages. This planner begins strictly on July 1st, so that’s the first daily page. You can see each day has a whole page dedicated to it, with the exception of Saturday and Sunday.
Saturday and Sunday share a divided page, and there’s also a notes block at the bottom of that page, as well.
Then, the days carry on back to Monday, and there’s no break between the weeks in this planner, it carries all the way through to the end of the month.
One difference after the planner pages is that this book does not contain a contacts section or any extra notes pages in the back, but it does have a few familiar favorites.
Stickers, of course are included, as well as the back pocket folder.
There you have it, a look at the new Daily Duo Life Planner from Erin Condren. Be sure to check back on the blog for an update on how I’m going to totally customize this planner coming up soon. I’ve never attempted to uncoil and recoil one of these before, so it’s pretty exciting. I’ve really been wanting a daily planner, I even used a digital planner for a while just to have the daily planning space, so I’m looking forward to the possibilities with this book.
