Erin Condren 2014-15 Life Planner Launch & Giveaway

As a Planner Enthusiast, I get very excited when I hear about new products, lines, and launches from my favorite brands.  You can imagine my excitement when I received an email from the friendly folks over at Erin Condren with news of the impending 2014-15 Life Planner launch.  I love my LP (Life Planner), which I use as a blog post and video scheduler.  Not only is it functional in helping me stay on top of my work, it is too cute to boot!  You can see more about how I use mine in this post if you’re interested.  Today, I am happy to finally be able to share details about the new Life Planner features as well as host a special giveaway!


The 2014-15 Erin Condren Life Planner includes all of the most well-loved features of last year’s design along with some great new improvements and additions that enhance both its functionality and cuteness.

✻ One of the biggest changes is that the LP now offers interchangeable covers!  This means you have the option of just having one cover all year round or changing them out whenever you want.  There will be new designs offered this year, as well, including a special platinum version in addition to the gold foil offered in last year’s lineup.

✻ There is now a clear ruler as opposed to the previous model’s opaque version.  It is still decorative and cute, but sheer so that you can see behind it when your planner is laid open.

✻ The new coil clips allow you to further customize your LP.  Just stick whatever you’d like to keep in your planner to the adhesive on the coil clip and snap it right into your planner!

✻ A Perpetual Calendar & Contacts booklet now comes with the LP.  This is a great new feature that allows you to keep all of your important dates and contacts in one place that you can use year after year and not have to write everything out over and over again.  You can use the new coil clips to snap your perpetual calendar right into your planner or keep it tucked into the included folder in the back.

✻ The labels that come standard with the planner as well as the ones you can custom order are now repositionable.  Huzzah!  Shout it from the rooftops: Repositionable Labels!  I am very excited about this new feature, if you couldn’t tell. 😉

✻ In addition to Photo Stickers, you can now get Designer Sticker Sheets (also repositionable – yay!) to decorate your planner.  These are available online now.

✻ There are new colors offered for the Elastic Bands that keep your planner secure.  I have a special sneak peek photo of this new package below!


Erin Condren has also been releasing sneak peek photos on their Facebook page over the last week.  They were very nice in giving me permission to repost some of those photos here so that you can see them all in one place.  Keep checking their Facebook page for more updates and photos leading up to the launch.


Here is a fun video sharing a look at the 2014-15 Life Planner and some of its new features:

They’ve also just released another video that is a more detailed walk-through of the new LP:

I share more about my thoughts on the 2014-15 Life Planner launch and its new features in my coordinating video:

  1. This is far and away my favorite planner EVER! This year will be my third and I can’t live without it. I had never used the morning/day/night format before this planner, but I find that it is super helpful in keeping all of my work/personal appointments and “to do” lists sorted.

  2. I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to win this for my birthday which is June 10th! I fell in love with the Erin Condren Life Planner when I saw your video a few months ago, Always look forward to your videos!

  3. Hi Jen,

    I’m so excited about the new LP.

However, I was wondering where I can find the link to enter. I use my LP as a school and work planner and it has been such a life saver this year!! I absolutely love ERIN CONDREN! I can’t even believe this giveaway!

    Thank you for your time and this offer! You guys are amazing!

  9. Holy Smokes! I can’t wait. I already have two LP’s from Erin, two Filofaxes (A5 and personal), what’s a couple more :). Thank you for sharing and the chance to win. Good luck everyone! 🙂

  10. I am so excited. I found out about these planners by watching you tube and have been anxiously waiting to get my first one. I love planners and organizing. I love watching you too Jen. I watch all you post and enjoy all the helpful hints etc

  11. So, do they not have any life planners for sale at the moment? What dates will the 2014-2015 be for? I’m hoping it starts 6/12 – I can’t wait!

    1. They go on sale starting 6/12. The calendar will be from July 2014 – December 2015 or January 2015 – December 2015 (you can choose when ordering). Hope this helps!

  12. Hey girl. Your wardrobe when you were in The Dominican Republic was AMAZING!! That cute black and white striped number, Adorable!! You looked a bit uncomfortable, but you shouldn’t be! You need to own those hard work outs girl! Work it!! lol Take care Jen!

  13. That’s so funny… I seen the launch video yesterday and I seen the respositionable stickers and I thought “Oh, I wonder if Jen knows about this!!” I love it!

  14. I am beyond excited!!! This will be my 1st EC planner. I love planners! I’m a mom and would be a mess without one! I actually discovered Erin Condren through you! I watched your review on your current planner. 8 more days!!!

  15. I have been looking at planners thinking I need to get organized. But a little overwhelmed with all the different one out there. Just need so direction and guidance I guess. Love the look and the fun yours have.

    1. It can be overwhelming with so many choices out there. I’d start by making a list of the features that are most important to you and do research on user reviews in blogs and on YouTube.

  16. When will you start posting on TBBB again for your May mini-series? I’m really looking forward to it!

  17. hi jen!

    thanks again, jen!

    1. Thank YOU for your generosity in providing these awesome prizes and for making beautiful and functional products with the best designs on the market! 😀

  18. When will you start posting on TBBB again for your May mini-series? I’m really looking forward to it!

  19. I just received my first LP last month, and could NOT be happier with it! Since I’m no longer in school, I didn’t think I needed a paper planner anymore, but I was forgetting things all the time, and had nowhere to track my work schedule, appointments, dates, etc. After some EXTENSIVE research (I read and watched so many reviews!), I decided to go for the LP. I LOVE how customizable they are, and I am elated over the interchangeable covers, coil clips, and repositionable stickers!!

    Can’t wait to order one for next year, whether I win a gift card or not!

    Thanks for posting, I can’t wait for next week!

  20. Thanks for sharing the planner love, the launch date has been in my planner for a week or so now!!! Would love to win. By the way loved the navy maxi dress SO much and you looked lovely in it so…… I ordered myself one

  21. I’m excited about these. I think I’m going to buy a cover with one of my address books so that I can try it on my current planner. If I like ’em, I’ll be set, and if not, I’ll have time to figure out how to fix it by January!

  22. Jen you did a video with Kristina Werner (whom I’ve followed for years) on Erin Condren LP’s and I immediately started following you and bought the Condren Notebook. I’m dying to get the Life Planner and love the new features! Thanks to you and Erin Condren for the chance to win one!

  23. OMG OMG OMG !
    I love your blog, it helps me get organized !!! And It’s through you that I discovered the ECLP !!!
    I’m planning to have my very first one this year, even though the shipping fee is a bit expensive (I’m french ^^), but I just fell in love with this planner so it will be an investment 🙂
    Surely getting a gift card would be awesome to get me started on the EC line of products <3
    Thank you for your blogs and everything that you share with us !

  24. I usually don’t love spiral bound planners (they snag on things and get all bent out of shape), but those interchangeable covers may be reason enough for me to try these out! I LOVE that. I spend so much time with my planner that I get bored of it! haha. It’d be nice to change it up for seasons, client meetings, weekend fun! I’m definitely going to snag some of those removable stickers too! I use colored pens and white-out tape currently, but that would be much neater looking!

  25. I would love to win, would help with planning my work, personal, and study life. Never had one before and would love to promote by word and view of mouth with friends, family, and work colleagues in Australia. Thanks for sharing Jen

  26. I love Erin Condren’s launch video…her stuff is so fresh and fun….I hope the new designs and features carry over to the 2015 planner… i just cant bring myself to pick up mid-year….i have been considering getting an academic to keep up with my sons school year and classwork sepretly it seems to take over my planner as is.

  27. This is so generous of Erin Condren, and you too Jen! If you hadn’t posted so many cool,Videos about life planners,we would have this opportunity!! These planners are so beautiful, but sadly a bit out of my budget…but looking forward to the opportunity to win one! Thank you so much for all you do. 😀

  28. The EC Life Planners are AMAZING! They make planning and organizing even more fun and enjoyable for me. I discovered these planners two years ago and have been obsessed ever since. Can’t wait for the launch! Thanks for giving us the opportunity to win, Jen!

  29. I am so, so excited for this planner! I am a teacher and have been using the teacher planner and love, love it. I am actually anxiously waiting for my new teacher planner to arrive. I have decided I need the Life Planner too!
    I would love to win this e-gift card… I will be buying the planner regardless… It sure would help with shipping as I live in Canada.

  30. i’m so excited!

    do i have to do all 10 things? i don’t have twitter so I didn’t do those and wasn’t sure if that meant my entry didn’t count.

    I would love to win one of these. i purchased the day designer this year and have found it isn’t working for me as well as i had hoped. i

  31. I’m a little intimidated by these planners and find the video goes really fast showcasing people using the features– I really appreciate this post (and your previous one) outlining the way you use your planner. I feel like I’m beginning to understand it a little better. Thanks.

  32. It will be my first year using Erin LP can’t wait to finally have my own 🙂 Thanks for the contest it’s really thoughtful :):)

  33. I’ve not ever had a Erin Conren planner, but I have read a lot about this product and all the comments said that it’s fantastic. So, I would like to have one of it.

  34. Awesome!! Thx4this wonderful opportunity that i may organize my plans for my health, etc!! I long to hear the results!!

  35. Can’t wait to get my new planner! Bought my first one last year for my b-day and it has went everywhere with me since then. I’m a teacher and use it to for school and home stuff.

  36. I have never been more excited for one of your reviews. Like like like!! Lol I really want a planner for my birthday. 🙂

  37. Would this planner be okay for a sophomore in college and a soon to be freshman in high school? My daughters love buying planners to keep them organized with assignments and events but I don’t know if this is way above what they need or not.

    1. It would’ve worked for me as a student, but everyone has different wants and needs when it comes to planners.

  38. Hi Jenn – what planner do you actually brainstorm ideas such as youtube video ideas, blog posts ideas, etc?… Where do you do the work that you are actually scheduling? I’m trying tipo figure out the best system, hopefully just one planner to do it all. Thanks!

    1. I use my Ec LP as my work planner and scheduler. I on’t actually do a lot of post brainstorming on paper…just in my brain 😉

  39. My school requires a erin condren life planner but my family wont buy one for me becausse its expensive and i dont have an credit card and no one in my family does and thats a bummer because if you dont have an erin condren planner there is no other option and they dont give out the school planer the planner that they all use is an erin condern life planner and ou have to order it yourself the school doesnt buy one for you then you pay for it when the school orders one for you and if they did id buy from the school but the only option is to buy it your self or be left out. When i found out I burst into tears qutomaticaly becasue i didnt know what to do. and if I was on of the winners my family will be so grateful for everything because we dont have a credit card to order anything which makes me sad and my whole family down. if i won i would be so grateful to you an erin condern for the support of the giveaway. PS: sorry if its too long

  40. I hadn’t heard of Erin Condren before you posted your YouTube videos about the Filofax (I love mine!) and you introduced Erin Condren’s Life Planner. I love the bright colors and quotes intermingled with the monthly and all the fun accessories. I’ve got my fingers crossed for the contest but either way, I’m going to be picking up some of her adorable stuff for my office/Filofax. Thanks for sharing Jen!

  41. Thanks for hosting this Jen and for introducing us to Erin Condren. I love planners and hers are so cute but also practical! Fingers crossed 🙂 xx

  42. Jen,
    Thank you for your kind and generous heart. You are so giving I pray you will be blessed for all your kindness. Thanks for introducing us all to such great ideas. Also for thar hope of winning such fun gifts.
    Your so awesome and sweet
    Sara 🙂

  43. I entered my first ever giveaway with you! i’m so so excited with the new life planner! i cant wait to choose the cover (im thinking the wild one) and everything else. currently i use another planner and im so happy i will change it to Erin Condren! I have watched every video and read every email and saw every pinn on pinterest! can’t wait

  44. I would LOVE to win this gift card to buy my mom a planner for her birthday!!! I absolutely love my LP and my mom has always commented on how she would love one but she can’t afford it. My mom is truly the most amazing person in my life and I would love to be able to give back to her for all she has done for me. I absolutely love your blog btw!

  45. Thanks for the detailed overview of the updates, Jen! I’ve been wanting to get a Life Planner for ages but the high shipping cost to Canada deterred me… until now. Looks like a solid update this year! Can’t WAIT till it arrives in my hands!

  46. I am excited to buy my own life planner. I clicked on the link to sign up for the newletter and the $10 off coupon. Does anyone know how long it takes to get the coupon code! My Life Planner will be sitting in my cart until I get it!

  47. I too am a huge LP lover! I have had four now… I am NOT liking the removable covers. Word of caution: DO NOT adhere your notepads (if you decide to order them) to the back cover. I have had my planner 2 weeks and the back cover has fallen off multiple times. The constant falling out and sticking back in has loosened the holes and several of the punches are bent. 🙁 this was not a cool change.

    1. I believe EC mentioned in the LP launch video that they redesigned the keep it together folders to better hold the notebooks and to avoid sticking them to the covers. I can imagine the extra weight of that would put a strain on the removable cover. I am sorry to hear yours has suffered from it! 🙁

  48. I am looking into a life planner. I am so confused though. Whats the difference in the foil vs the classic? Can i still use different covers for the classic? What makes the foil one more expensive than the classic? Hope you read this.

    1. Yes, the covers are interchangeable between the two kinds. The price difference is really in the foil cover and if you want the gold coil. The foil planners also come with a translucent page with some foil stamping as well.
