Hi all! Today I am going to show you how I decorate and plan my whole week inside of my Erin Condren Planner. I love spending a little time on Sundays to plan the rest of my week. I love even more making it look pretty! This week so far has been going quite smoothly and I have been able to get so much done on my to do list! I planned to split up my weekly goals throughout the week, but looking at my planner every few hours made me go through it even faster!
So here is the process I go through every week in my ECLP.
Starting with a blank week, I always place my “to” stickers. Depending on the week, I would switch it up with “to go”, “to buy”, “to call” and more. These flags (as shown in the picture) can be found here. I also place my new weekly water tracker stickers in the corner.
The next step is choosing which colors for my theme this week. This week’s theme I went with pink and gold. I’ve been loving gold with everything! I chose a few rolls of washi tape with gold and pink and I just start taping up the morning day and night sections (since I don’t use it for that specifically). If you can see I layered the gold tapes over pink to cover it up even more. I also always go with a pattern when laying my washi tape so it doesn’t look to uniform (here I have the arrows then dots for every other row). I also use thicker washi to place into my boxes, most weeks I use washi squares or EC Squares. And lastly, I always use skinny washi to separate the weekend from the rest of the week.
After washi tape, I bring out my heart checklist stickers! I love using these! I like putting them in every other box to not waste as much stickers. They are half the size of the EC squares, but I like them like that so I can write events and such below!
Then I bring out my events stickers and mark all the important days or appointments. This week is PAY DAY..woo hoo!
I also like to place little quotes in my weeks. Here I plan on having some much needed “Me Time” this week.
After all the tapes and stickers, I start writing and planning my week.
- My Top Section is for “Home” – this is where I write down all of my to-dos, house chores, decluttering, and such.
- The Middle Section is for “Kids” – I am always browsing Pinterest for kids’ activities. They also just need some good outdoor fun. To remind myself, I have to always make a to-do list to do with the boys.
- The Bottom Section is for “Personal” – this is where I write down things I want to do for myself. It can include planner related things, my blog, or just pampering myself. I always have to remind myself to paint my nails!
I use the bottom lines to write down what I plan to eat for B-Breakfast, L-Lunch, & D-Dinner. I plan this the morning of.
On the side bar, in the weekly goals section, I write down everything I need to do that week. Things I need to buy, places I need to go and such. I try to transfer these things into my daily boxes whenever I have free time and try to get them all done by the end of the week.
The weekends are pretty bare, because I like to just relax and spend time with the family. I use labels to mark special events.
Then, I bring out my cute decorative stickers! This week I just chose hello kitty, sicne it was pink! I just place them whereever I think is bare and needs it. I used the cute bows to mark my personal time too!
& lastly, I choose a matching paper clip or page marker!
So that’s how I decorate and plan my weeks in my Erin Condren Life Planner! I hope you enjoyed and that this helped you! Let me know if you would like to see this type of post on a regular basis or not in the comments below!

Love your planner stickers! And you are alway so generous!!! I would love to see more of your planner. Also…do you have a download for your little quotes???
thanks for sharing this! I love how you decorate and plan…how do you like you ECLP in your ring planner? I really want to do it because of how it looks but honestly I don't ever add anything in it. I use to have a Kate Spade planner and it was too small I didn't like it and I honestly never added any dashboards or inserts but I do love how the ECLP looks inside a Kiki K 🙂 sorry I'm rambling lol
