The Free Printable Calendars for 2022 and 2023 (dated and blank pages) are here! Just like in the past, this monthly calendar printable is filled with the dates for each month so all you need to do is print and start using them! Am I rushing into the new year a bit? Are you starting to lock down events already for the New Year and have no place to put them? Are you still a “paper calendar” person even though there are so many electronic options out there?
Here’s what great about free monthly calendars – if you want to reprint a month or print February three times, you can! You don’t feel guilty if you start the year with a bang and later fizzle. You can also get out some markers and doodle on them and make them your own personality!
📅 Why These Work
Large Open Space to Write | There is enough space that you can actually hand write out a lot of information in each block.
Black and White | These are done purposefully in black and white for a couple of reasons. We don’t want it to compete with any other planners you are using. It also saves on the price of using color ink.
Vertical Orientation | These are set up for a vertical calendar so they can easily be used in all of our other binders or as you make your own. Slide this into the Recipe Binder to track your life so you know how busy you are when you are meal planning.
🖊️ What’s Included
All 12 months of the year, each on its own page for 2021, 2022 and 2023.

✔️ How to Use
Here are the different ways we use these in our home. We each print them off and use them.
Me – I use mine to track my book challenge and my monthly goals. I am a visual person and still like to see things and write them down. For my book challenge, I have 52 books I read per year and this helps me keep track of them. Monthly goals started years ago where I started tracking them on a monthly basis, rather than set up a New Year’s goal.
Breaking it up helped make mini-goals much more attainable and allowed me to focus on smaller, more frequent goals. It turns out I would crush it this way! One of those goals is to increase my bike riding distances. Yes, I can see that in the Map My Ride app, but I love seeing the visual of “look how much farther I’m able to go!”
My Mom – I printed this off and sent it to my mom. She has a couple of calendars that she uses to track her blood pressure and her blood sugars. Not stuff she wants on her appointment calendar – heck, she is so busy that there is barely room to add this in anyways!
Savor and Savvy Business – We use one to track our planned posts and when they should happen! There is a lot of strategy behind the scenes to make sure the readers get what they need, when they need and want it!
Teenage Son – Our son is currently using the printable calendar to track his school projects and applications to college. He still is more of an electronic calendar kid but has seen the benefits of writing down and seeing the deadlines vs “oh, that is weeks away…uh…I guess it isn’t!”
Dad – He uses it to track his expenses for work, CPE credit deadlines, CPA license renewal dates, and upcoming training.
🗓️ Other Printable Calendar Uses

Not everyone needs a calendar with the 2017 or 2020 dates locked into place so we are also including in a separate PDF, a blank calendar, for you to use as needed.
📝 Free Blank Template
This comes in great when you need to blend months, plan out farther than the current calendars go or if you just want the flexibility to not have dates on the sheet.
Attached is a blank calendar template below. Print that out and fill in the dates yourself for any year you want. Are you ready to start looking at the 2022 vacation planner? We definitely want to reserve the rooms before they are sold out!!
💻 Sizing Tip
You can resize this calendar when you go to print it. Once you hit “print” hit the paper size to be 5×7 and then towards the bottom click on “scale to fit” and it should come down to 56-58%. If you do it this way, you can size it to fit into a standard planner. This will allow you to separate calendars for different functions
How do you use the printable calendars? Do you prefer the ones with the dates or without? Give us a shout out in the comments for suggestions and thoughts for the next year! We do this for the readers so we would love to know how you are using them and what we should do to adapt to your needs in the future!
