Erin Condren Planners are Life Savers

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Auburn chapter.

Going into college I thought I had it all figured out. I had a great relationship, got along with my roommates, loved… okay liked my classes, and was thriving living on my own. Yeah, well no human is perfect and rarely does life ever stay on one path. Pretty soon my schedules were booked, I was running from appointment to class back to appointments, and it became too much to bear. That’s when I decided to invest in a planner.

Little too late did I join Her Campus Auburn to discover this little planner. The Erin Condren planner is a nifty little ESSENTIAL that, in my opinion, you should get. Essential is in all capital letters because it really is a necessity. If you’re disorganized and can barely remember what you had for breakfast, then this is definitely the planner for you.

It ranges from different patterns, sizes, colors, and some where you can even get them monogrammed and customized. The one that was provided in the Survival Kits is the perfect size for on-the-go people who don’t want to carry a heavy load. You can slip this compact planner in your purse, and when you need to see what’s on tab for the day, just whip that sucker out and go crush your schedule.

Now many of you will say, “But that’s what a phone is for,” and yes, you’re 100% correct. But if you have ADHD like me, or you get distracted easily, you will go on your phone to check your schedule, see a notification from a text, snap, twitter, or whatever and check those first. Then you get sucked into the swirling black hole that is your phone and forget all about that 11:00 a.m. brunch with your friend. Plus, your teacher’s favorite saying, “writing it down helps you retain more information,” holds true. I have also heard the saying, “If you write down your goals, you’re more likely to achieve them,” which explains why I never complete my New Years Resolutions because… like can you really stick to a goal for a whole year? I can barely stick to an activity for an hour, but back on topic. When you write down your plans, you are more likely to achieve them. 

So even though the semester is dwindling to an end, and 2017 is coming to a close, you still have a whole other semester to get though before summer. So there is no excuse not to go out and buy a planner in preparation of the spring classes. And while you’re at it, go and buy some cute accessories for your planner, which are also available on the Erin Condren website!
