How To Use printable Calendars

These calendars are like a blank canvas – they can be used for so many different planning and organizing purposes! For an at-a-glance calendar at a workstation, I love the idea of framing or posting these on the wall . Here are some suggestions for how to use them to keep organized:

  • Keeping track of kids’ activities and schedules
  • Managing project timelines
  • Planning upcoming events
  • Keeping track of deadlines
  • Keeping track of homework and assignments
  • Scheduling meetings
  • Keeping track of appointments
  • Goal setting
  • Planning meals
  • Tracking habits
  • Recording daily activities
  • Tracking holiday projects and to-dos
  • Planning workout schedules
  • Creating a cleaning schedule
  • Logging house cleaning and home projects
  • Planning editorial calendars
  • Logging reading minutes
  • And more!

There are so many ways to use these calendars in 2021, the possibilities are endless! I’d encourage you to print two – one for planning your daily activities, and another one to have on-hand when you’re ready to tackle something else on this list.

How To Print these Calendars

This printable calendar is totally free, and is designed to be printed easily at home without using a lot of ink. You can also have it printed at a copy shop or office supply store.

The simple black and white design looks clean and modern when printed on white paper. If you have a theme to match or want more color in your space, try printing it on colored paper!

I designed this free printable 2021 calendar as US letter size so it’s easy to print at home. You can also scale the size of the calendar in your printer settings if you want to shrink the size to fit different paper sizes.
