There are two types of people in the world, people who write notes in their phone and people who write them on paper. I’m the ladder. No matter how hard I try I always seem to lose things in my phone. Needless to say, Erin Condren Notebooks are my favorite and here is a full Erin Condren Notebook Review and break down based on personal experience.
Erin Condren Notebook Review
Erin Condren notebooks are different because similar to the planners, they are completely customizable from the coil or bound style, to the cover, to the paper style inside.
Similar to the planners, the notebooks have very thick paper so you don’t have to worry about bleed through. I love the coiled notebooks for work and the small hardbound journals for on the go notes. (I always keep one in my purse.)
This is your basic note taking style with college ruled lined paper. One thing that makes Erin Condren unique when it comes to classic lined notebooks is each piece as a banner at the top that is perfect for headings and titles but can also be used as decoration when taking lengthy notes.
This is my personal favorite style of notebooks, however, seems to be an unpopular one, so let me defend my self real quick before getting into the details.
Dot grid paper is the best kind for notetaking because you have a blank canvas, whether you like to write and make notes all over the place with arrows as I do, you like to doddle, you need checkboxes, the possibilities are endless!
Ok, back to the Erin Condren dot grid, is a free space is small grey dots perfect for all the reasons listed above.
My next favorite from dot grid is the productivity style. This features college-ruled lines on the left and a bullet list on the right. This is perfect for meetings or school.
I like to take all my notes for meetings in the lines and then add my deliverables or key takeaways in the bullet on the right. This would also be perfect for school to take basic notes on the left and homework assignments or things that may be on the test on the right.
