I’m looking forward to 2017. Seems the older I get, the happier I am to greet a new year. This year has been a challenge for me and honestly, I won’t be sorry to see it end. I’m ready for a fresh start and a clean slate. So…to welcome 2017 a little early, I’m introducing my 2017 free printable monthly calendar. It includes the year-at-a-glance, monthly calendars, a weekly planner and a weekly menu planner. Lastly, I included an inspirational printable. You can use this any way you choose, but I thought it would be a nice cover if you put your calendar in a binder with a clear pocket on the front.
There are lots of ways you can organize yourself and your calendar. I chose to get a binder and monthly divider tabs. I printed the year-at-a-glance and monthly calendars on card stock so they would hold up a little better. I printed four weekly planners for each month. (More on that later.) I also printed the weekly menu planners but I don’t think I will keep those in my binder. I make my grocery list in the kitchen, so I plan to keep a menu planner stuck on the refrigerator with a magnet.
The only office supply store in my area is Staples, so when I was looking for a binder I stopped in to see what they had. I found cute Studio C binders in several different patterns. I chose a blue geometric with polka dots inside. They are not available on their website but most stores carry them. I have linked to two similar binders in my source section below.
Another way to use the 2017 free printable monthly calendar is to keep it on a clipboard. It could hang on a bulletin board…or it could hang on the wall of your command center/drop zone.
The weekly planners are very basic but they will do the trick. I have used the 2016 weekly planner all year and it has saved me several times. I didn’t print ahead and there were times I wish I had…so I am printing 52 weekly planners for 2017. That way if there’s something to keep track of down the line, I will be ready.
The printable is really just to make you smile whenever you use your calendar. No one knows better than me that we can’t shine every single day…but on the days you feel dull and flat, maybe just seeing these words will help. Sometimes all it takes is one kind word to flip your day from bad to good. I hope the printable does that.
