I’ll be honest, I ordered this set for a friend and a different one for me. When I opened up the package I instantly knew this one was MINE, not the other! I purchased several LIY planner sets for friends last year and everyone is hooked. I actually look forward to planning my week each Sunday and can’t wait to look back at my record of 2022 and reflect! Well done, LIY crew…can’t imagine my life without one of these planners, now!!
I received my new 2023 planner (The Macy) in the mail last week, and obviously I have not put it to use yet. However, I have had the Life and Style Weekly Planner before (last purchased the 2021 planner) and I have to say I love it! Last year, I decided to switch to using an Erin Condren planner instead - just for a change up. While I like my Erin Condren planner, I purchased the lay-flat style thinking I would enjoy that more. After using it for most of 2022 now, I have found that I am just not as much of a fan of the lay-flat style as I thought I would be. It's a beautiful planner, but I don't like that it takes up so much room on my desk while I am writing in it. Also, it doesn't have tabs that allow you to easily navigate to the monthly calendars like the Life and Style planner has. The Erin Condren planner is also bigger overall (i.e., the pages are larger) and while that is nice, I often find I have a lot of empty space to fill in it. Given all of that, I decided to return to the Life and Style planner this year since it's a great size, is spiral bound, has tabulated monthly calendar pages for ease of finding each month, and features just the right amount of space for planning out each day. I'm looking forward to using it again for 2023! Thanks Erin and team for creating such a great, easy to use, and well-thought out planner!
