Learn how to journal with the Erin Condren Life Planner. The horizontal life planner makes for a perfect daily journal.
I want to remember these moments forever… I want to cherish them, I want to feel them, I want to be taken back and the only way I know how… is to have a picture, smell or writing that serves as a reminder of this particular moment in time.
Please note that I received the Erin Condren journal’s for free.
Since being introduced to Erin Condrenn last year I have absolutely loved her products. Her daily planners, also called life planners, are versatile and can really put my year in perspective. Did you see my blog post, Erin Condren Life Planner To The Rescue ? It explains to you exactly how I learned to multi-task without filling my brain with tons of chaos.
If you’ve been following my blog or Instagram for a while then you know how big I am about journaling. From our nightly Question Of The Day For Kids journal, our yearly MomAgenda School Years Journal and my reading journal (which you haven’t seen yet)… I definitely have many journals going on all the time but they each have a different purpose. They each keep specific memories that I can compartmentalize and always bring back whenever I need them.

Do you remember the journaling I’ve been doing with my kids? I bought them a journal where I write them little notes and questions and then they write back to me. This allows me to know what’s going on in their head, practice their writing skills and spend time with them in a unique way. Here is a picture of how the journaling looks in real life. My seven year old places it under my pillow when she’s done responding to my question. To see the original post where you can have a look inside the journal scroll through my feed.
Not only do I journal as a family and with my kids, I also have my own personal journal that includes a small snippet of my day.
I have been using the Erin Condren horizontal life planner for daily journaling. I use my Polaroid sticker camera to print out pictures that I stick on.
How to journal with the Erin Condren planner:
You purchase a horizontal Erin Condren life planner.
I love these pens for journaling and use them for most tasks at home. Unless I need erasable pens and erasable markers. I’m a very visual person and for me, a picture can totally take me back to a particular moment. I got this sticker printer for printing out images. The quality isn’t that great but the convenience sure is wonderful.
This polaroid camera is also great for when I need a quick pic on the go and don’t want to have to go through a process of phone to app, app to printer.

How I want to use my Erin Condren Life Planner to Journal
Another way I wanted to use this life planner is with my children. I plan to give each child a week where the journal is for them to jot down. I will include everything they will need for the journal and we will get to see the week through their eyes. I think that would be SO incredibly special.
