Free Printable Calendar Part 1: Monthly Spread
The printable monthly spread can be used for a January 2018 calendar and customized for every month through the end of the year. In fact, since I purposefully didn’t include dates, the calendar can pretty much be used **to infinity and beyond!**
The printable monthly calendar has a clean, simple design with room to write for birthdays, events, holidays, trips, and highlights. The section below the monthly calendar includes space for goal setting. Use this box to write out monthly goals and priorities. You could also use this as a vision board and identify words, actions, or intentions that you want to guide the next 30 days.

Free Printable Calendar Part 2: Quarter at a Glance
I’m particularly excited about this quarterly printable. Why? I read this ah-mazing book called the 12 Week Year (affiliate link!) that changed how I think about planning and goal setting.
While I recommend you check out the book, here’s the bottom line:
We’ve gotta give up “annualized thinking” and plan out 12 weeks at a time. By doing so, we’ll ultimately be much more focused and productive! (And accountable to the goals we set since we’re working in a tighter timeframe.)

Free Printable Calendar Part 3: Weekly Spread
The weekly spread is a quick one-page overview of the week ahead. There’s a section for actionable items for the week. This space is great for benchmarking monthly goals. It’s also a good section for setting reminders for things in advance.
Free Printable Calendar Part 4: Daily To Do List
Before I finished this free printable calendar, I sent a survey to Home Beautifully subscribers to ask what they’d like to see in the free planner. OH. MY. GOSH. The responses flew in like a flurry of Hogwarts letters, you guys. (Turns out we feel passionate about what’s in our planner. This is, of course, no surprise since I feel the same exact way.)
One of the most frequent requests? The daily to-do list printable. You guys, I heard ya …all of you! The daily to-do list is the perfect printable to fill in over the morning cup of coffee. What needs to get done in the next 24 hours?
Also at readers’ request, I’ve included a water tracker, which I’ll admit I need to use myself.
Free Printable Calendar Part 5: Gratitude Tracker and Happiness Diary
The gratitude tracker and happiness might be my favorite spread in the free printable planner. This printable provides space for one to two sentences for self-reflection every day. Yup, space is short on purpose.
Why? I’ve found that daily gratitude is a practice. And while I’d LOVE to be able to sit down and write in my diary every night paragraphs of things that make me happy or about which I feel thankful, I just don’t have the time. Like, at all.
So, this one to two sentence gratitude tracker and happiness diary is the perfect solution for me to practice mindfulness without feeling overwhelmed by a full blank page.
Free Printable Calendar Part 6: Habit Tracker
I am OBSESSED with habit trackers. Yep, I love ‘em. Using a habit tracker helped me get through the first month postpartum with my daughter. (I tracked things like brushing my teeth, go outside, and so on for my mental well being.)
In fact, I have a whole article dedicated to using your free habit tracker right here. The article includes ideas for things you could track.
And the free printable calendar includes two types of habit trackers. You don’t need both each month unless you want both.
Free Printable Calendar Part 7: Meal Planning and Grocery List Planner
This meal planner is ah-mazing. And, no, it’s not revolutionary. It’s space to sit down each week and plot out what your family’s going to eat.
Because (and this shocks me all the time), they want to eat every day. Why does that always catch me off guard?
My husband and I started using this meal planner when we started scrimping our pennies. Not only does it help us stick to our family budget, but also it helps us avoid that overwhelming feeling of figuring out what the kids are going to eat, staring into the icy freezer.
The meal planner has a section to plan out breakfast, lunch, and snacks each week. In fact, on the printable, there are two sections.
You can either plan out two weeks per printable.
Or, if your kids are like mine, you can plan out separate meals for adults and kids on the same printable. (It would be SO MUCH EASIER if my toddler ate what we ate. As it is, he’d be happy eating strawberries every single meal.)
