This might not be revelational to anyone, but aside from my iPhone (which I live on!) the thing I use most daily and that helps me simplify life is my Erin Condren planner.
I’ve always been detailed and organized and had a paper calendar in my room for as long as I can remember. (I’m serious, I remember being 8 and having an American Girl one, then an Anne Geddes one [whoa, blast from the past!]…even a beanie baby one!)
As I got older it turned into school planners, and making my own weekly spreadsheets…I loved having a place to physically write things down, it helps me remember things.
Fast forward years later and I’ve tried many planners and layouts and the one I keep coming back to is the Erin Condren Life Planner.
I write a lot more about it here in this post on How to Make and Keep a Weekly Schedule. So I won’t go into a lot of details, but it’s my favorite layout by far! I love the fun colors and how customizeable they are. You can get names, and pictures printed on the front if you’d like.
Word on the street is they have awesome teacher and wedding planners as well!

I will say, they’re more expensive than a planner you can pick up at Target. But twice now I have given up my Erin Condren and said I’ll just use a Walmart planner to save money, and twice I have regretted it! This is something I buy as my Christmas present every year and it keeps on giving throughout the entire next year!
