My 2019-2020 Erin Condren LifePlanner Binder

Color: Kaleidoscope Neutral
Layout: Vertical
Calendar: 18 Month
Color Theme: Colorful
Personalized: No

It is a rigid, hard cover binder. Mine has a beautiful neutral kaleidoscope patter on the cover and silver rings inside. I chose the colorful color theme for the inside inserts. You have the choice of choosing colorful or neutral.

The binder measures 10″ high x 9″ wide x 2″ deep.

I’ve been in love with Erin Condren LifePlanners for many years. You can see some of my other planner posts here. The Binder option is new this year and is being made in response to EC customers asking for a binder system.

I love that you can customize how your binder is laid out by moving the pages around. Also, all of the Erin Condren dashboards and inserts fit into the binder. How cool is that?!?

The binder ring spacing matches the coil spacing of the EC coiled LifePlanners. That means you any dashboard or snap-in Erin Condren accessory in your LifePlanner Binder.

Month at a glance Erin Condren LifePlanner Binder

Each month starts with this really great month-at-a-glance page. It has room to write out goals, birthdays, special events, or anything else you want to highlight.

Next you have the classic full calendar view. This is a great page to get a “big picture” look at the upcoming month.

Next you have the weekly spreads. I’ve chosen a vertical spread so that I have plenty of room to use stickers on my weeks.

The planner insides are customizable. You can choose horizontal, hourly, or vertical layouts. They are exactly the same as the coiled LifePlanners.

Erin Condren LifePlanner Binder calendar next year

The notes section has twelve pages of blank space. There are four lined pages, four dot matrix pages, two coloring pages, and one page of twelve hexagrams (great for goal planning).

Next is a “Contacts” page, which is great for jotting down emergency numbers, doctor’s numbers, or contacts you need to be able to access quickly.

There are four pages of full-color stickers in every EC Binder. New this year are the kaleidoscope stickers pictured above. Aren’t they pretty?

There is a double pocket folder in the back of the LifePlanner Binder. These always come in handy for collecting receipts, school papers, or other miscellaneous scraps.

Additionally, every Erin Condren LifePlanner Binder comes with the small perpetual calendar. These are perfect to fit in your purse.

I have the full 18 month planner in my binder. I’ll admit, it’s pretty full although all 18 months do fit. If you plan on carrying this binder with you, I suggest taking out a few months so that your binder is lighter and easier to work with.

I plan to use this binder as a desk planner. I’m going to keep it open on my desk, therefore I don’t need to worry about taking any of the pages out. But, if you plan on having a mobile planner, you might want to experiment with the page inserts. There is tons of flexibility with the binder system.
