This post is all about the 2021 Erin Condren Focused Collection items.
The 2021 Erin Condren Focused Collection is finally here! I had been waiting on this collection ever since the announcement of it’s release date.
I’m a sucker for minimalist planning when it comes to my work planner. I’m not into using a bunch of stickers when I’m planning my permit deadlines for work. I just don’t find it necessary.
I do use stickers in my life planner, but I have seen some over the top sticker action in some of these planners.
It’s beautiful and I spend hours of my day sometimes watching them put these elaborate sticker themes together.
That’s just not my style for work.
This year I have teamed up with Erin Condren to review some items from their new collections. The items I will be mentioning were sent to me by the Erin Condren team; however, the opinions are solely my own.
Let’s get into this 2021 Erin Condren Focus Collection.
The main focus of this collection is organization and streamlined planning. The Focused Collection is giving a very professional vibe with the vegan leather covers and minimal design.
This post shows you the Erin Condren Focused Collection items.
The 2021 Erin Condren Focused Collection
I know people usually save the best for last but I’m going to jump straight into my favorite part of this collection. It’s the file folders for me!

The File Folders
I immediately gravitated towards the file folders because I work in an office everyday and I’m surrounding by file folders. I have folders for folders at this point.
The Erin Condren file folders are nothing like the thousands of folders I have in my office though. They are made of high-quality card stock that makes them almost feel like plastic. They feel indestructible and very sturdy.
The file folders are worth every penny if you are protecting and organizing files on a daily basis.
Dual Tip Marker Set
I also received the dual tip marker set in black that I haven’t had the opportunity to use yet.
However, I have seen them used by others and I can’t wait to try them out.
I love a good dual tip marker.
Being able to use both ends is truly helpful when you are working in an office setting and you need a marker, but you also need a pen.
Harbor Focused Mechanical Pencil
Normally, I don’t use a lot of pencil at my job, but I do keep a few mechanical pencils on hand at my desk just in case I need one.
Before me and this pencil met, I would laugh at you for even thinking about buying an $8 pencil.
Hear me out.
I’m not just saying this because I’m partnering with them.
This. Pencil. Is. Everything!
I’m not sure what is so different about this pencil but the way that it feels in your hand is like none other. I love it so much and I’m probably going to start using it to for my focused planner.
The Erin Condren Focused Collection Paper Quality
Before I dive into the planners and notebooks I want to point out the paper quality of these notebooks and planners.
I’m not a paper expert and I don’t know much about paper other than what I learned while watching Dwight, Jim, and Pam work at Dunder Mifflin.
This paper feels very thick but still lightweight. It’s not normal paper you guys.
I won't get technical and bore you with the history of paper creation, just know the people at Erin Condren made these planners to last no matter what type of planner person you are.
Blush Productivity Focused Notebook
I received this beautiful 124 page notebook that leaves your imagination for possibilities open. I love that this notebook doesn’t have any designated sections in it.
You can add whatever you’d like to this notebook and it doesn’t have to be the regular to-do lists and goal pages. Get creative with this notebook or simply use it as you planner.
Erin Condren Focused Collection Pocket Planner
When I opened this pocket planner I immediately said, “OMG!,” the vegan leather feels so amazing to the touch. It reminds me of the old hymn books in church but much softer and flexible.
The pocket planner wouldn’t work for me because I write big and the smaller, I try to write the sloppier it will become.
However, the planner is beautiful and would be the perfect gift for a traveler that needs to keep up with dates and appointments.
It would fit so perfect in a carry-on bag and wouldn’t take up much space at all. The planner’s dimensions are 3.5” by 6.25.”
A5 Slate Blue Focused Planner™
This Focused planner is everything you need to be a professional. Just having it in my hands makes me feel very adult like.
I mentioned above that I write big so small planners don’t really work for me. I usually get a full 8.5”by 11” planner or an 8” by 10” planner. Having this A5 size planner is something I’m going to have to get used to but I’m so excited to start using it.
I’m loving this planner. I originally picked up the Day Designer flexible planner to be my work planner for 2021. Now, I’ll be using this Focused Planner instead. I’ll think of something else I can put in my Day Designer.
- Page Type: 80# Text Weight
- Size: A5 (5.8” by 8.3”)
- Calendar Dates: January 2021- December 2021
When I’m in a meeting I used to write down dates and important deadlines on a sheet of paper and them transfer them into my planner later because I didn’t want to carry my big chunky sticker filled planner to a professional meeting.
NOW I have a planner that is fit for a CEO. I’ll proudly open my planner and add important things I need to keep up with.
2021 Erin Condren Life Planner
This was a surprise that I wasn’t expecting to get in the Focused Collection box but I’m so grateful for it. The Life Planner has it's own collection that you can checkout here. It is beautiful and ready to be decorated.
