Oh, Hello TN

Oh, Hello Stationery Co. TN Spring Swirls Cover

This week I received my new Oh, Hello Stationery Co. traveler’s notebooks! Oh, Hello Stationery Co. is a stationery shop owned and operated by Kayla and Alex. They have a variety of planner stickers, stationery, and home goods. Their Traveler’s Notebook is the latest product to launch!

I have seen several different ways to plan since being part of the planner community. Using a traveler’s notebook is one of the many products I have seen planners use to organize their lives. Last year, I was shopping around for a good traveler’s notebook, and I saw that my favorite sticker shop was working on creating their own traveler’s notebooks. I waited patiently for Oh, Hello Stationery Co. to launch their traveler’s notebooks on March 3rd! Since I am subscribed to the Oh, Hello newsletter, I was able to place my order a day early on March 2nd because they sent a special email to their subscribers. It is so nice of them to remember their subscribers in this way!  They launched both A6 and B6 size planners in three different colors, pink, brown, and black along with a variety of cover designs and customization options available. I selected two TNs: one in brown with the traditional spring swirl cover and one in black with the blue squares pattern. I was able to use my Poppy Points to receive a $15 discount on my TNs!

I received my order within a week of placing it. As I was waiting, I began looking into what types of journals or notebooks would fit in a B6 Traveler’s Notebook, as this is the size I ordered. I learned the Erin Condren PetitePlanners and jot your thought journals™ are the perfect size for the B6 TNs after researching and asking for suggestions from the Oh, Hello Stationery Co. Facebook Group. I had a Budget Petite Planner and ordered a 3-pack of jot your thought journals™ on Amazon that would fit perfectly!

Once the order arrived, I was so excited to place these journals into my new TNs. There are three jump bands in each TN that allows up to three inserts. They hold any type of insert in place and make it easy to flip between them. On the inside of the front cover, there is a cute pocket with three business card holder slots, and they have pressed their logo into the pocket. Oh, Hello Stationery provides a card with a brief description on there TNs and how to share your stories as well! On the inside of the back cover, there is a large pocket to put notes or stickers in it, which is great if you have some surprises to hide. The look and feel of these TNs are great! Overall, these TNs are a quality product at a reasonable price, and I am very excited to start using these in addition to my LifePlanner™ to stay organized and meet my personal and professional goals.

Erin Condren Planner Review

1/5/2018

After having a few months to settle into my new planner, it has been wonderful to have more structure using an hourly layout for each week.

Erincondren.com was running a special at the time I ordered my 2017/2018 planner, which included a complimentary turquoise hardbound journal and painted petals sticker sheet.

Along with the planner launch, I also purchased a planny pack, snap-in StylizedSticky notes™, Coilclip™, Sticky Corner Pockets, and painted petals Compliment Cards. These items have been a big help in keeping me organized and nice surprises to share with others.

This is my second year to use an Erin Condren planner. The vertical layout 2016-2017 planner was my first planner. It was fun to decorate, and I started keeping it as a to do list tracker and memory book for day-to-day activities. For my second planner, I wanted something that would help keep track of my events in an hourly fashion as I found that type of layout was more effective for time management.

Overall, the 2017-2018 planner has a smaller coil, the colors are much more vivid, and the paper quality has greatly improved. This has been my favorite planner so far, and it is one I will stick with going into 2018-2019 when they launch.

The notes page before each month has greatly improved. It is organized better and has a sections to use for goals, to-dos, or budgeting. I have been able to utilize this page each month by creating to-do lists and goal lists.

The weekly spreads have changed slightly, and I like the the changes to the thankful thought box. The hourly view is very simple and easy to use for keeping up with daily tasks. It is a nice set up for planners that have a busy schedule and need this type of structure.

The painted petals snap-in StylizedSticky notes™ have a good sticky quality and stay where you place them compared to previous sticky note dashboards. I enjoy using the flags for important reminders and and the squares to block out a few hours in the weekly view.

The Planny pack is my favorite product that Erin Condren has launched to go with the planners. It has a strap that goes around any book and the pouch is great to carrying pens, notecards, stickers, etc. I like the linen color, and it gives a nice stylish look to my planner. It helps me keep everything organized, and I never lose a pen!

The 2017-2018 Erin Condren LifePlanner™ has been my favorite planner in comparison to the previous 2016-2017 planner. They made great improvements to the overall design and structure. I am definitely sticking with this planner until the end of 2018.
