The Eccolo planner is similar to the more well know Erin Condren, Recollections Plum Paper etc. but with a more affordable price tag so I figured it was worth trying out!
Before the Pen
After the Pen
This week I wanted to try out the Creative Devotion Pens. Since I wanted to try out all the colors, I opted to color code by day:
I did blog planning on the left and general to do’s on the right
I just managed to fit everything on the page. For my needs, it would be better if the blank box was slightly smaller and the lined boxes slightly wider instead. That way I could’ve avoided needing 2 lines to write 1 task in some instances.
The quote section of the weekly spread is a waste of space. I wish the planner had left this section for notes or habit tracking, or at least made the quote smaller and off to one side.
You know those pens that feel like they write themselves? Where the pen just glides across the page so you can write really quickly… That’s the Creative Devotion Pens.
They also had no issue writing over correction tape – it was just like writing on normal paper.
The pink was more of a pastel pink though, than a hot pink:
- Quick & easy
- Functional planner
- Good amount of writing space for each day
- The quotes on each weekly spread take up a lot of space
Would I use this planner again?
The planner is good.. but it’s not great. It’s that same boring horizontal layout that most planner companies have as one of the standard layout options. The quote takes up too much space and it would be annoying to white it out each week. I probably wouldn’t use this planner again.
Instead I recommend the horizontal Recollections which has a similar style and price tag (although you can get the planner super cheap using coupons at Michael’s) but with a more functional horizontal spread.
