Planner Comparison: Erin Condren Life Planner + Plum Paper

This continues my series of Favorite Organizational Tools! In case you missed the earlier posts, you can check out my love for Remember the Milk and for my Foxy Dori and friends.  I LOVE ORGANIZATION AND LIST MAKING SO MUCH, YOU GUYS.

So much so, in fact, that I have not one, but TWO planners. Which if you know anything about the planner community is NOTHING, but if you're new to the planner game, seems excessive. The reality is I bought an Erin Condren Life Planner for my personal use and loved it SO MUCH I wanted to get another planner for work. But then got to wondering if an ECLP was the right fit for my work needs, so did a little more research and decided on an Plum Paper Planner

The Erin Condren Life Planner and the Plum Paper Planner are SO SIMILAR in so many aspects that it can be pretty hard to decide which might fit your needs best. But don't worry - I got you. Check out my latest video comparing the two planners!

Erin Condren Life Planner

Disclaimer: I personally purchased BOTH of these planners and opinions are 100% my very own. I was not compensated in any way for this review and comparison. 

Link to the in depth comparison I promised you:

Do you use either of these planners? 
Do you use a different kind of planner?
Do you sense a brand new planner coming into your life? 
Do share!

Happy crafting (and planning), y'all!

Lisa is a gamer, crafter, fangirl, mother, wife and unabashed nerd who is pretty ridiculous and it's best you know that up front. When she's not binge watching Netflix or crafting into the wee hours of the night, you can find her spending a lot of her time on Pinterest and Twitter.


  1. Great video. Thanks for the in depth comparison on the two, now I may have to give one a try and congrats on the newest bundle.

    1. Thank you! If you do end up going with one, let me know!

      And thanks again - he's fantastic! :)

  2. does the erin condren snap in stuff fit on the plum paper?

    1. You know, I haven't tried! I would imagine it would though since the coils are similar. They definitely aren't identical though - so I wouldn't go crazy until you know for sure!


Hey you! What do you have to say?
