This week, erincondren.com released peeks of the newest versions (!!!!) of the Life Planner which will be available for purchase on June 9, 2015! After a survey earlier in the year, the planning community anticipated a few of the changes that we’re seeing in the previews; two layouts (vertical and horizontal), a change incolor schemes, and more versatile sections within the weekly layout.
I was going to talk about the history and evolution of the planners but I’m way too excited and want to jump right in – so I’ll save that for another post.
First, in arguably the biggest change in the last five years, there will be a horizontal layout option! This is HUGE for people who either want a change or whose brains work better in a horizontal format. As much as I LOVE my vertical layout (which is one of the reasons I switched to EC), I’m so excited for the change that I want to try something new. I will report back on which I prefer after I live in the new one for a while!
I’m MOST excited about the notes page being added back after each month! If you’ve been an EC user for at least three years, you remember a time when there were notes pages after each month. A few years ago, they removed them and it was a sad day. (Could you hear me crying?) I used them for SO many things and I’m beyond excited that they’re reappearing this year. I’ll share how I plan to use them in a review post!
Other new features I’m looking forward to: That “Flag your Future” spread where you can use 12 small sections to keep track of goals, future events or monthly focus ideas, the new layout for the year-at-a-glance (which I intend to use this time around), graph paper in the back of the planner (room layouts, weight loss graphs, monthly checklists…) and new colorful stickers! For the vertical layout users, I’m SO glad to see the text all over the week removed so that people can customize their subsections. So many people stray from morning/day/night that this change will benefit somany people without taking away from people who use them as they currently exist. I also LOVE the printed flag on the sidebar of the new vertical layout.
