Welcome to the 2024 version of our annual free printable monthly calendar to download and use to start planning and organizing when you'd like.
This year's design features a sweet gingham background in light pastels and colors that coordinate with the month (think pink for February, yellow for April, black/gray for October, and green for December).
I kept the calendar style with enough space to write in with no extras to interfere (like the tiny calendars at the bottom that I've never used...) in a vertical format.
Why a vertical format?
I find vertical calendars more flexible than horizontal formats.
When using in a binder, you don't need to turn it to view, and I love using them on clipboards for portability and hanging on a wall. They hang better on a fridge with a magnet, too.
How to Use A Calendar Printable
You might be wondering about the ways you might be able to use these calendar pages.
Even though I love The Flexible Planner and how it has helped me consolidate a bunch of information into one place, having a visual calendar that I can refer to is still really useful.
Monthly Calendar Pages Can Be Used For:
- Birthdays and events
- Keeping track of school activities
- Monitoring work projects
- Tracking craft and home projects
- Anything you want to plan for yearly and have an overall picture
Ways to Use Vertical Calendar Printables:
Use With Clipboards:
Like mentioned, my favorite tip is to attach a calendar page to a vintage (or reproduction) wooden clipboard (here's a set of 6 reproduction clipboards for a good price).
Hanging three calendar pages on clipboards on a wall allows you to have a quarterly view of the year, where you will be able to see at a glance what is coming up, but isn't as overwhelming as having all 12 months up.
Use With A Binder:
Putting all twelve pages into a binder is a classic option, of course, which is a good way to organize birthdays, events, projects, and school activities.
You can find pretty binder options in An Oregon Cottage's Amazon Shop.
Use With Magnets:
These printables also make great menus - just use a magnet to stick one to the fridge and fill in the days so everyone knows the answer to the "what's for dinner" question.
