Color Crush Planner

 I recently started using a new planner.  While I love my Erin Condren Life Planner, it was just too big to fit in my purse and I wasn't carrying it with me.  I've decided to use my Erin Condren planner for blog/YouTube channel planning and use the Color Crush planner as my daily planner.

I ordered mine from an Etsy shop called the Southern Planner.  The planner is significantly smaller, but has enough room to plan and it fits nicely in my purse.  It also has some fun features that I'm loving!

It's such a pretty planner with a binder that can be used year after year.  For $42, it's economical because in future years, all I have to do is order inserts instead of ordering the whole thing.  And look at that cute little charm that says Love.  So cute!

When you open the planner, there is a quote.  It's a different quote for each color planner.  Mine (called the Teal Stripe planner) has a Maya Angelou quote on velum paper.

The planner has four fun sections at the front.  The first is called Write it Down and it has pages with sections for writing down Thoughts, Ideas, and Dreams.

The second section is called Memory Keeping and has spaces for making sketches, writing down memorable things people said and recording memorable daily happenings.

The next section (which I LOVE), is called Lists to Love and it has places for recording your weekly menu, grocery list, to-do lists, monthly goals, and things you plan to do.

The final section is called Staying Inspired.  It's kind of like having a scrapbook in your planner.  There are cute pages for recording memories or ideas... anything that inspires you!

The two-page monthly spread has REALLY small boxes, but I'm okay with that because I want a planner that fits in my purse.  Color Crush planner fanatics (and there are many of those... check them out on YouTube and Facebook) decorate these pages with cute stickers and Washi tape.

The last page of each monthly page spread has a This & That list.  Then it goes into weekly page spreads that have a good amount of space.

At the back of the planner is a plastic pocket for storing anything from stickers to receipts.  

This is followed by a notepad called Lists and Notes.

The planner also includes a cute bookmark to mark your spot in the planner.

So far, I am absolutely LOVING my Color Crush planner.  It has everything I need to plan my day-to-day activities.

  4. This is such a pretty planner and as you say, so easy to take around with you. I am terrible for double booking myself so I really must get into this planning craze. I just never find the time!

    1. I do the same thing with double booking. This seems to be helping!

  5. Thanks so much for joining in the fun at Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop!!!
