It’s never too late or early to make a plan. Once you start planning, you’ll need a calendar. While you can use an online calendar, we understand there are benefits in working with pen and paper, not least that it can be more pleasurable.
Whether you want to organize your life, keep track of events, create a passion planner, plan your vacation, or simply manage your time, here are free printable calendar solutions that will help you maintain an overview of your most valuable personal resource: time.
Timeless Calendar Templates
Templates for the entire Office suite can be found in the Calendar category on the Microsoft Office page. These will be downloaded to your computer and require Microsoft Office or an alternative software to be opened.
Note that you can combine categories to narrow your search. While most calendars will be more current than the thumbnail suggests, you can search for the current year to be sure.
Microsoft’s free online Office solution has a great selection of templates for any occasion. In the Calendars category, you’ll find various templates for Excel, PowerPoint, and Word. Don’t be misled by the outdated thumbnails; most calendars are actually up to date or dynamically update when you change the year.
Office Online calendars are easily customized and print friendly. The templates will save to OneDrive and open with Office Online. You can also save them to your desktop, to be edited with a desktop Office program.
The guide to everything in Excel has a comprehensive collection of calendar templates for personal and professional use. The templates are updated on a regular basis and you can find blank, birthday, or perpetual calendars that never go out of date. Their selection of printable calendars includes weekly and monthly templates in portrait and landscape formats, with weeks starting on Monday or Sunday.
Select the output format (Word, Excel, or PDF), type of calendar (blank, holidays, school, schedule), and year from the sidebar. Then you can download a matching yearly, weekly, or monthly calendar in portrait or landscape orientation. Simple and stylish.
It doesn’t get simpler than this! Pick a year or month (click Other for a wider selection), then press the button to print your calendar. The site also offers a template starting on Monday, as well as a selection of PDF and Excel templates. Use the Make a Calendar feature to fully customize your calendar template.
