It’s that time of the year again to start looking for planners that will suit our needs for 2017 and if you are planning to get Erin Condren’s Life Planner, then be sure to finish reading this post. 😉
This is my third year to review this brand and you can check out my past reviews here.
I made a list of the *newest features of her 2017 Life Planner and they are:
1. NEW LAYOUTS
You now choose from the three layouts available:
VERTICAL / HORIZONTAL / *HOURLY
2. COLOUR THEMES
COLOURFUL / *NEUTRAL
3. CUSTOMIZABLE LAYOUTS
- *Gold (+ 10 USD)
- *Rose Gold (+ 10 USD)
- *Black (+ 10 USD)
4. CUSTOMIZABLE COVERS
- a leather-like material that comes in 3 colours (Taupe, Aqua Blue and Purple)
- starts at 55 USD.
- Interchangeable covers – more than 45 designs to choose from.
- starts at 65 USD
OTHER ADDITIONAL FEATURES
The inner sides of the front & back cover were made more functional and turned to *white Wet-Erase Boards.
The Goal-Setting Page has a bigger space to write on and they also provided a small space at the bottom of the 2018 calendar.
- The Keep-it-Together folder has a new design
- The clear clutch/carry-all bag is no longer attached, unlike last year.
- The blank stickers are cut like ribbons which made it cuter.
- A sample sticker book and a bigger coil clip are also included.
- There are 2 vouchers worth 20% off that you can give to a friend or use personally for your next purchase.
- As for the ruler and perpetual calendar, they are the same as last year & had mo significant change.
I chose to customise and have a chic design for my 2017 planner since I picked the Ready-to-Ship option last year. I love that it is more personalised and Thumbs up on the new features and choices but there are some things that I personally didn’t like. Some of them are minor stuff but the coil is very important to me.
I am really happy with the coil of the Rose Gold Planner because flipping the pages has never been smoother. However, when my order arrived, the first thing that I noticed was the size of the coil. The 2015 planner has the smallest size of the coil, next is the 2017 Planner and the biggest was the 2016 Rose Gold planner.
Erin Condren reduced the number of pages on the 2017 Planner.
2015 Planner has
- 20 ruled pages
- 10 blank pages
2016 Rose Gold Planner has:
- 6 ruled pages
- 4 graph pages
- 5 blank pages
While the 2017 Planner has:
- 6 ruled pages
- 4 graph pages
- 4 blank pages
Lastly, the elastic band is still not included in the basic set of the planner, unlike my 2015 Gold foil which comes with a free metallic gold elastic band. It is sold separately and comes in a set of 3.
Among the three planners that I purchased, I say that the Rose Gold planner remains my favourite – the stunning colour combination (Rose Gold and Serenity) and coil size are just perfect! This is not that bad, but it could have been better.
There goes my review for the Erin Condren 2017 Life Planner. Thank you for reading and I’m looking forward to reviewing maybe another planner for 2017 so be sure to SUBSCRIBE and never miss my upcoming posts and reviews.
