Erin Condren Deal and Tab Solution!

There is one reason I choose get emails about Plum District deals:

Erin Condren.

I refuse to pay full price for anything on that website, but I love the products. So when I saw a Plum District deal for $25 for $50 worth of Erin Condren wonderfulness, I had to get it!

You can't use it for the Life Planners - but you can use it for everything else. Which is a LOT of cute stuff. (Have you SEEN their iPhone cases?!)

Here's the link if you want to check it out:


(If three people use my link, I get it fo freeeee. But I would let you know about this deal regardless because it fills me with the warmth of organizational cuteness.)

Also, I've been meaning to share this extra tidbit of information with you for months. You know how I love my Erin Condren life planner right? I've definitely told you about it before. :)



But even though it's been a great pal and help to me, the tabs started looking...shabby. And not shabby chic. Just shabby.

So I did some research and found a blogger who came up with an excellent solution.


Her suggestion was to get Avery brand 1.5'' clear tabs to put over the life planner tabs. Simply genius. 

Look at my shiny, protected tabs!


It worked like a charm. I can flip those tabs all day baby no problem.

It requires some maneuvering of the Avery tabs but Kristin shows you how to do it (with a video) so I won't go into detail. Much thanks to her and her wonderful idea!

So for those of you who have a life planner or are thinking about getting one - get some tab protectors! It makes it SO MUCH BETTER.

  3. I literally just got the SAME pattern of the EC Life Planner in the mail on Friday. It has not left my reach since then! I love it! Thanks so much for the tip about the tabs - I'm taking the proactive approach now, so they don't start looking shabby :)

  4. My tabs were looking shabby a few weeks after I bought it, so I did the same thing. They're amazing now! Oh, how I love my EC planner! =)

    And it's pretty awesome that we have the same design. ;)

    Happy May!

  11. I purchased my life planner in November and while I love it, it makes my bag so heavy. I wish there was a way to make it "light".

    I wish I would have seen this earlier because then I would have used your link. But I did end up purchasing the iphonse case. I cant wait for it to arrive!

  15. I stopped by your website as I was looking to see if there were any new codes for the 2012-13 planner yet. Wanted to tell you that I used little pieces of clear packing tape and then trimmed the edges of my tabs. They look laminated!
