Erin Condren Deluxe Notebook Unboxing



I recently placed an order with Erin Condren for one of her large deluxe notebooks, you know the ones, you can personalize them even add a calendar.  With every EC order I place,  a little  debate goes on in my head to try to be sure that I spend my money wisely.  Although Erin Condren products are well crafted and beautiful, they are also expensive.  I want to try to get as much for my money as possible while making sure that I can have all the planning books I need with one purchase.  Since I knew that I would be purchasing an EC Deluxe notebook and case on line I thought I would try this year to purchase my Life Planner at Staples.  Erin Condren has a line of Life Planners, Simple Notebooks, teacher planners and wedding planner for sale across the county in certain Staples Office Supply stores.  I am lucky enough to have one of these Staples in my home town and decided to purchase my Life Planner there at a considerable savings.  I also purchased a neoprene case , both in my favorite classic paisley pattern.  There are very few difference between the Staples Life Planner  version and the version that you can purchase on line.  There is no vellum cover page and no design on the zipper pouch in the back.  You can not personalize the Staples Life Planner at the time of purchase, but you can easily personalize a new cover on line.  As far as I can see, those are the only differences.  Definitely worth the savings.

So a week or so after I ordered from Erin Condren on line, the most beautiful box arrived on my doorstep.



Erin's boxes are so much fun to open.  The boxes are beautiful and as you open it up, your purchases are wrapped as pretty as a present!  Always with some free happy stickers or note cards!  

Right on the top of the box was my lovely new notebook in classic paisley, my very favorite color choice.  I chose to include the $15 12 month calendar option. The months are all positioned in the front of the notebook followed by lined pages, blank pages, stickers, the keep it all together folder and the clear zipper pouch.  



I had originally ordered the cover shown above as a divider, I was so happy to see that the divider could also double as a notebook cover!  It should be noted that the calendar pages included in the note book do not have the dates printed on the pages.  A package of date dot stickers is included for free. However, I feel for the price of of the deluxe notebook with the calendar upgrade, the dates should be printed on each months calendar.  I love stickers as much as the next planner addict, so having to apply the date dots each month is no big thing I just think it would have been more appropriate if the dates were preprinted.




Opening the tissue paper revealed matching Neoprene case, elastics and a free with purchase journal, date dots along with some free stickers too.
   


Be sure to check out the unboxing video!
                 

                             



I am so excited to get started planing with my new notebook. At first sight, I am so impressed by the quality of my purchase.   I plan on using my new deluxe notebook and accessories to help me stay organized with all things blog and YouTube.



I will be sure to let you know how it works out!
