Erin Condren Hardbound, STM, planner process review

Last year I discovered the concept of “proper” planning and excitedly purchased my first ever Erin Condren planner, a vertical hardbound edition. However, I found that I was still in a planning rut, as you can see in the first photograph. I’d spent quite a bit on the planner so I wanted it to be visually attractive and user friendly but I didn’t know how to do it. Shortly afterwards, I came across a YouTube of Rachel Blundell talking about  EllieBeth Designs UK stickers and that’s when I had my light bulb moment!

Erin Condren, Passion Planner and the evolution of my monthly layout

If there is one part of a planner that I have struggled with more than any other, it is the monthly spread. Starting with a bullet journal, I never had enough space to record everything that was going on and I just couldn’t make it work for a while.

The first planner I go was my Erin Condren Vertical – I say first… I’d already got the teacher planner. I was in limbo for a long time and was adding stickers for personal things that were going on – guides each week, then a few stickers for other events. It was always just a bit empty.

Hobonichi, Erin Condren and Penguin Joe help Sophie organise her business

Hello Planners & Stickeraters!

Today’s post is about how I use stickers to help with my business and my business planner.  I have my Hobonichi and my EC Hourly for my everyday planning. Then I also have a Hobonichi weeks. This planner doesn’t get photographed or shown on social media. Mainly because it’s messy with lots of scribble and not many stickers. So I don’t usually bother showing it. But this is one my most important planners – it’s for my Cake Business. So I’ve decided to share how my planners help me organise myself and my business and make sure I don’t forget anyone’s orders! And what stickers I use to do this.
