Life Planner! My alternative to the Erin Condren planner

Well, I really loved the look of the Erin Condren planner. I wasn't prepared for the hefty price tag this year... maybe next year. It really is a beautiful planner with so many options.

So, I decided that, since my pocket-size calendar is nearly outdated, that I would go look for an alternative in an 18 month calendar, one that I could start using right away. I searched high and low, went to Barnes & Noble online and in person, searched through Amazon's vast collection, but still didn't find anything I liked. Then I went to CVS to pick up a few unrelated things... and there it was.

I bought a simple notebook size PlanAhead 18 month planner, some stickers, pulled out markers I already had, and my husband made name stickers for me. This is just for starters. 

The planner is already starting to look great and I have more and more ideas for it every day. It's really fun to play with it and personalize it.  Here's a YouTube video I made discussing this and other things I purchased from CVS. I'll post an updated video after I've finished personalizing it.


I'm really enjoying doing this so far, and this is turning out to be a geat alternative.
