I love good deals.

It's really not that big of a secret that I love Erin Condren. I mean, I have a Life Planner and when I see it, it makes me smile. The only thing I'm really not a fan of is her prices. I mean, I get that the products are really nice and all (and personalized!), but college student speaking- it's a splurge. I definitely can't get the notebooks, notepads and everything else I want (and pay my credit card bill each month). I'm assuming (based on the comments from previous posts) that you all feel the same way. Super cute- just not in the budget.

Well, I was reading Kelly's blog today, and she posted a coupon code that one of her readers had passed along. It's for twenty-five dollars off your order- not too bad, huh? The code is SEEYOUSOON25. I don't know how much longer it will last, so if you want to use it, you may want to hurry up. This code would make a Life Planner $25 (which while it is still kind of expensive, it's not as bad. Plus shipping obviously.)

Since I still had a credit to the site (because of the big mixup and my planner not getting sent), I knew that I wanted to combine the two. So, I decided to get the thing at the top of my "Erin Condren Dream List" at the moment. I really like her notebooks because they have lined paper and blank pages, and even a zip lock pouch! But, I didn't really like the "big girl" notebook, because it has calender pages, and I want to use this notebook as a journal. So, calender pages would get in the way. Here enters the Kid's Journal. It's basically the same thing, except no calender pages, wide ruled paper (YES!), and it's a dollar cheaper (haha). While it's not available in all the same designs, they had the one I wanted (Candy Lace). So, I ordered that one.
When I got to the check out, I saw that I still had a good amount left in my credits. So, I decided to add in 2 matching notepads. They will look like these ones below, except they will match the notebook. (This is something I kind of regretted not getting with my Life Planner because they are so cute!)

Grand total for this shopping experience (including shipping)? FREE.
This college girl is very happy. :)
