The Planner Society Kit

I started my subscription to the Planner Society back in October, 2015. At the time, I didn't realize that there was a waiting list. I subscribed first week of August hoping to get the September kit with the pink flamingos and yellow florals, but it was all sold out! This planner kit is probably the most popular out of the planner subscription kits out there and even though it's a bit costly, it's the only one I get. Because I'm in Australia, it cost around $50 to $55 AUD a month for this (including shipping cost). It's really the postage that boosts the price, but so far, every month has been worth it.

The Planner Society kit

The kit is usually jam packed with pretty stationery, exclusive only to The Planner Society. It includes planner stickers, puffy stickers, sticky notes or list pads, see-through stamps, quote cards, embellishments, charms, pretty papers, a pen and specialty items like a pencil case or notebook. Every month, the kit seems to get better and better. To be honest, I don't use everything in it! I don't do stamping and I'm not really into scrapbooking, so I tend not to use the cut out embellishments. I sell these just to get some of my money back..

I consider this a luxury item, because for planning, you don't need all this stuff! All you need is a planner (or notebook) and a pen. That's it. Extra bits and pieces just make it more fun, creative and enjoyable to plan.

Monthly Planner Society Kit

These are the kits I've from The Planner Society. Planner not included - I just like to take photos of the things next to my planners! :)

Update March 2017: these are all the planner kits I received. Because I have so many things now, I've stopped the subscription! It's been great, but I have more than enough planner supplies and decoration I know what to do with.

You will have to check your email after you register and get the code from there, to use during checkout! Here's the official Erin Condren video featuring their new stuff.

I usually wait until the end of the year to get my weekly planner for next year, but I wanted a horizontal planner for this coming financial year of 2016 to 2017, which starts July. So, I went ahead and joined the massive crowd and ordered on the 1st of June launch. Like a lot of other crazed Aussie EC fans, I stayed up late so I could order during the first hour of launch (midnight in Australia), but it didn't work out that way due to so many others doing the same - we broke the EC website! Haha. I ended up going to sleep without having ordered anything because their website kept crashing.

Despite the problems, I did manage to order on the first day, even though it was halfway through the day. Hopefully, I still get my planners and things by the end of this month, even though there were probably thousands and thousands of other planner girls who would've ordered before I was able to.  I think this is probably the most I've spent in one go at the Erin Condren shop - a couple of planners, stickers, sticky note dashboard and those new removable mini storage pockets. #excited {insert happy emoji here}.
