A Dupe for the Erin Condren Planner

Happy 2016 Everyone! This year like every year I just didn't feel the need to make any resolutions because face it I just can't keep them. But I do wish to be more productive here on my blog and I'm trying to stay organized. For months I have been stalking the Erin Condren site and was tempted in every way to make the purchase but I could not bare to let myself spend that ridiculous amount on the planner and then the shipping cost was insane. So I kept using my little Walmart Planner until it was time to get a new one for the new year. I went to Target and found a few that were nice but not what I wanted for the price point they had either. They to were a little expensive for just a plain planner. So I started to check different sites and even Etsy but I honestly didn't want to spend more than $10. Yes I know I'm being a cheapo but I like to be on a budget. Until I came across The Happy Planner. I found this planner at Michaels and it was so similar to the Erin Condren Planner. I was amazed how similar it was and the Price sold me. I instantly looked up the website to see what selections were available on The Happy Planner site and they pretty much had the exact ones at the store along with a wall of stickers, note pads, folders, inspirational quotes etc.

The planner is a 18 month planner and whats good about it is that you can remove the months that already have passed and add any extras that fit your life style plans. The planner was $24.99 in store and online for Michaels & for The Happy Planner site it is the same price but currently on sale for $12.48. Dont forget that if you decide to pick it up at the store to use a Michaels 50% off coupon which will come out to $12.50. The planner is sold out on the Michael's website but you can check the other website or in stores. The stickers and extras start from $1.99 -$7.99 on line and in stores. I've also seen some cute stickers at the dollar tree if your really all that crazy with the stickers. What type of planners are you using and how do you feel about the sticker and planner world? Leave me a comment down below.

    1. Sheena I hear you. I could not do it myself either to spend that much. It is pretty much identical. What I like about the happy planner is that it's night a spiral so I'm able to pull the pages out and costumize it to my needs in adding meal prep sheets that they also have and folders to keep any important papers. I thought the price was pretty good. I also like that I can pick it up at michaels and use there 50% off coupon. They had a whole wall of the extras too. Definitely check it out. I'm obsessed with mine.

  2. I would love to get a planner! They are pretty expensive though so I'm really just doing my own for now. Etsy has a lot of them if you want to check for more options too!

    1. Hi Bitzsoi,
      Yes I agree they can be super expensive. This one I purchased for 12.50 and I'm obsess with it. Thanks for the tip.

  4. Never thought about looking for a dupe for EC Planner. Really the most important thing, is staying organized, right? c:

    1. Yes of course staying organized is my number one thing when having a great planner!! But not all can afford such a pricy one. What type of planner are you using?? My last one was from Walmart and I made it work. But I wanted the EC one but could not see myself spending that amount!! This one is my favorite one yet!!
