2016 Erin Condren Comparison + Giveaway [CLOSED]


Ahh the world of planners. It is a most amazing thing to have found such a community of people who love stationary as much as I do. Ever since I was little I would always want to stock up on school supplies each year before I started and I always wanted a planner even though my mother knew half the supplies I wouldn’t use, they just made me happy!

This year Erin Condren has come out with a horizontal version of her amazing life planner.  Erin has also come out with a beautiful rose gold planner to add to her metallics collection, however it was a limited edition. There are a lot of people who still are on the fence about what planner to choose from Erin and I am here to provide you with a side by side comparison! I will be comparing the horizontal and vertical layouts, as well as the rose gold color with a silver RTS option.  I hope this will help you make your decision and even though the rose gold is sold out, I will be giving away one Rose Gold horizontal at the end of this post so keep reading!

First the side by side comparison… I have put together a small gif for those who want to watch a walk through. And I will also us the photos for those who are like myself and must draw out the pros and cons and details of every decision you make! These comparisons will not include any of my thoughts about the new planners, I will save my review for next weekend after I plan this week in both planners!

And now the gif…

And now the individual photos!

Finally a few pictures comparing a rose gold horizontal with a regular horizontal. (I am only showing the first few pages and the different colors in coils.)

  1. Love this post!! I was always a horizontal planner and last year but the bullet and went vertical and hated it!! So glad to see Erin come out with a vertical option!! Would love this planner!! Thank you for such a generous and AMAZING giveaway!!


    1. Omg. You commented on my post about wanting a horizontal! I’m so excited that there’s a chance to win! I love how detailed you are!


  2. Thanks for the post!! I have always used horizontal because I am a creature of habit but seeing them together I may have to switch!


  3. This is fantastic! I am thinking of trying the horizontal option this year and the Rose Gold coil looks gorgeous!


  4. This is so awesome of you!!! I have been dying to try the horizontal layout! The vertical is awesome as well, but it is always awesome to try something new!


  5. So helpful to see all the side by side pictures. I have never had an EC I’m newer to the planning world; had a plum paper planner vertical and it didn’t work for me and wanted a horizontal and have been looking this was awesome and I’m really hoping to win!!


  6. I loved this post! I’ve never had an EC and am newer to the planner world, I had a plum paper planner vertical but the format didn’t work for me and was looking for a horizontal. These side by side pictures and a peek into this world of Erin Condren is very exciting and I hope to win!


  7. I have a vertical from last year, but I really think I might love the horizontal !!! Thanks for the chance to win. Glad to see another WV girl !!


  8. This year was the first year I have purchased an EC life planner. I was so excited to start using it but I’m afraid I have not used it to its full potential. I don’t want to purchase a new one and let this one go to waste but I think the horizontal layout would fit my lifestyle and planning style so much better. 🙂
