Hey planner friends! I just need to say, the Erin Condren Deluxe Monthly Planner continues to be one of my favorite planners out of all of the options available. It is so functional, and there are now more notes pages than ever before. I am a huge note taker, especially when it comes to planning my business, so I am a bit obsessed. I wanted to show you the new Deluxe Monthly Planner for 2019-2020, and I even filmed a flip through, which you can catch down below.

I picked up TWO Deluxe Monthly planners this year, I wanted one for my budget and one for my business. I love the new cover options this year, and I chose this really beautiful rainbow flora, and the new zodiac cover. They are seriously so much fun, and these are honestly my most-used planners. Here’s what’s new with the Deluxe Monthly Planner this year-
To see my video flip through, check it out on Youtube, here-
The Deluxe Monthly planners I chose this year are in the colorful layout. These are both in the new “kaleidoscope” theme, which is the theme for all of the 2019-2020 Erin Condren planners.
You can see some of that design here on the month overview page.
Each monthly divider has the kaleidoscope design with a different colored hexagon in the center with a fun inspirational quote, just like the classic Erin Condren style.
However, after your divider is where things get a little updated for this year’s Deluxe Monthly. You have this fun dashboard to start with, and I believe in the neutral color style, this page is actually dot grid. I love how these can be customized and used for whatever purpose you need. Then, you have a dashboard for the month where you can write goals, birthdays, and then you have two more customizable sections.
After the dashboards, you flip into your monthly layout view. This is basically the same as what you get with the life planner, with the kaleidoscope details and the shaded notes sidebar. In my budget planner, here’s where I’ll track when I’m paying bills and other expenses. For my business planner, these pages will be used to plan out all of my content.
Then, my favorite part about the new planner is that each month has 5 notes pages between. I write a whole lot of notes when it comes to planning for my business, and I love being able to break my budget down by week on these pages for my budget planner.
After each of the months, you have this section for planning ahead for 2021, and you can write down important dates or things to remember.
After that, you get into the bulk of notes pages that are in the back of the planner. I got 40 notes pages included for my budget planner, and 80 notes pages included for my business planner. I love that you can select a custom amount of notes pages, that is one thing that is really nice about this planner.
Here you can see the difference between my book with 80 pages on top and the book with 40 pages.
As I’ve mentioned I just love the functionality of these books and they are my most used and most loved out of all of my planners. I love using planner stickers and decorating my Happy Planner, but sometimes you just need function and you just need to be organized, so that’s what these books are for me.
