Canadian Review - Erin Condren Life Planner

Happy Hump Day, lovelies.

Today I'm going to do 'Canadian' review on the Erin Condren Life Planner & I've got a giveaway at the bottom of this post.
You can find a lot of Erin Condren reviews online, but they're all American.. so I decided to do it from a Non-American perspective.

I bought a Life Planner last year and I absolutely loved it, so I decided to buy another one this year.

This is last years planner, I still adore it.

I love the colorfulness (yes, I just made up a word) of this planner. It makes me happy when I look at it.

I love the random quotes throughout the planner, and the pages of colourful stickers.

I love the pockets for storage! I typically keep business cards, various papers, and receipts in these pockets. It's great for keeping everything in one place!

A side-by-side comparison of last year's planner and this years planner. They have made a few changes that I LOVE.
The new coil is fantastic. It's bigger, and stronger and I don't feel like I'm going to snap it! They have included a book mark, which I also love.
One of my favourite changes is this:

Laminated tabs!
Last year my tabs go destroyed (as you can see). I would put my planner in my purse, bag, desk, etc. and the tabs would get stuck on everything and just rip or bend. But not anymore! Laminated tabs for the win!

This is what I looked like when I saw the laminated tabs.

Overall, I'm very happy with the planner.

It's pretty, it's unique, it's practical, it's convenient, and it's affordable... if you're American.

The planner is $50 (USD), which is a bit 'pricey' for a planner, but it is honestly worth EVERY penny. My only issue with their pricing would have to be the shipping cost, $39.99 (USD) on top of the $50 for the planner is not exactly ideal. This is honestly my only complaint about Erin Condren and the Life Planner.
If you live in Canada and want to buy a planner, I suggest finding a friend who is looking to order a planner as well, and order them together. It helps to save a bit on shipping, and it's environmentally friendly (less packaging).

If you're interested in buying a planner I highly suggest that you enter this contest that I'm currently participating in, hosted by the fantastic Fox + Hazel:

a Rafflecopter giveaway

There are a few great prizes, and one winner takes all. Enter now, before it's too late!

If you have an Erin Condren Life Planner, what do you love and what do you dislike about it? I'd love to know what you think!
I hope you all have a fabulous day, and I'll see y'all tomorrow.
