Whether you need them for the office, the classroom or your refrigerator at home, a paper calendar helps you get organized and stay on top of your to-do list and appointments. Sure, digital calendars are convenient — we can take them everywhere we go on our smart devices — but paper calendars provide easy, at-a-glance visual reminders to everyone who passes through the common areas of a home or workspace. And some people simply remember things better when they write them down using a pen and paper. If you’re looking for free printable calendars to create your own organization system or reinforce new habits, check out the websites below to find some helpful options.

The site offers free access to 12 of the most popular printables in its library. You do have the option to sign up and pay for a subscription to view and print the hundreds of other calendars in its catalog, but if you’re looking for a basic calendar to see if you can get into the habit of using one, this site is a great choice.

Saturday Gift

While basic, traditional calendars with familiar fonts and few frills work well for many of us, others prefer some pizzazz that helps their calendars feel more personal and pretty. If you think getting organized deserves an element of fun, check out the free printable calendars from Saturday Gift. While there are more minimalistic styles here, where Saturday Gift really shines is in its self-professed “cute” calendars — ones with swooping calligraphy scripts, lesser-used fonts and charming graphics meant to put a smile on your face.

Most of the calendars here are monthly and yearly designs, although you can find some weekly options to suit your needs. You’ll also find unique printables to supplement your calendar — think fillable bucket lists, sleep logs, and book and habit trackers. Many are designed with particular font and color themes, which can help your paperwork feel more cohesive and like an entire calendar system, not just a page you print out and tack up on the wall.

A Piece of Rainbow

This site — and one of its calendars in particular — is just too cool to leave off the list. If you’re looking for a free printable that’s both tactile and unique, not just something to hang up on the fridge, you’ll love A Piece of Rainbow’s DIY dodecahedron calendars. They’re not the most efficient for planning, as there’s no space on them where you can write. But for at-a-glance date tracking and something colorful and fun for your office, you really can’t beat these. Simply print one out on durable cardstock, cut out the template and fold it up; it really is a little piece of a rainbow for your desk.

Like Saturday Gift, A Piece of Rainbow offers a library of free printable calendars with more modern and unique fonts. Designs range from simple monthly pages to calendars that are half gorgeous artwork, half scheduling squares. If you want your printable to enhance your home or office decor, not compete with it, the options here are ideal.
