Free Printable 2013 Calendars

For me, January is all about organizing and setting new goals for the year.  I like to re-access the things I did last year, see what went right and what went wrong.  Then I like to set goals for the new year.  And above all I see it as I time organize.  And by organize, I mean everything from coming up with an organized plan to meet my goals, to decluttering and re- organizing my kitchen cabinets, to getting a new calendar and planner for the year.  For today I’ve got 5 free printable 2013 calendars for you!  Just click the link below each one to get the full calendar and print it out.  These are great for your desk and fridge, and they’re also stylish and cute.  Hope you enjoy!

Printable Fall Subway Art

It’s been a while since I featured some free printables here on the blog.  With the fall season just around the corner and fall decorating about to be in full swing, I thought it would be great to find some printable subway art with a little fall flavor to share with you.  These are great to print out and frame, then hang on a wall or place on your mantel or buffet.

Happy Decorating!

Free Printable Blog Planners and 2012 Calendars


My most popular post in 2011 was my Free Fall Printables post. I really enjoy finding and sharing free printables and look forward to sharing more of these in 2012.  To start the year off,  today I’ve got a collection of printable blog planners and 2012 calendars for you!

If your New Year’s resolution is to get better organized with your blogging, or just to get organized in general, you’ll love these freebies!

As always, the links to the place where you can actually download these can be found beneath the photo.

Let’s start with some Blog Planners!


Last year I got in to the habit of writing my posts in to a monthly calendar, and the other day I printed out this blog organizer from Mommy Words. I hope it will help me to plan posts and plan for other aspects of blogging too! 


I also liked the style of this planner from Oh The Lovely Things. It’s stylish and chic, and it gives you a little more room for your notes. 


And I think some of you may like this planner from The Peaceful Mom too.  It includes an area called “Purpose,” which is great for those of you who blog on a particular topic from week to week or month to month. And it also has spaces for you to do immediate, short term, and long term planning.
Now for some 2012 Calendars!


I’m always finding great stuff at Tom Kat Studio. I actually printed these, and I put them into my “blogging binder” for the purposes of scheduling my posts.  They’re very simple. (ie – you don’t have to use all  your ink to print them).  And they look good.


And here’s a calendar that’s a little more elaborate from Thankfully Thrifty.  It’s very attractive and would be great for your desk or wall. And I think this design will appeal to a lot of people.


And if you’re looking for something a little more fun and cutesy, you’ll love this 2012 calendar from Anything But Perfect. So far she just has January through May available, but these are totally adorable! I printed out January the other day and posted it on my fridge. I’ll be using it to write in appointments, due dates for bills, and just as a reference for everyday life.
Hope you enjoyed! Don’t forget to leave a comment to thank the site owners if you should go over and download any of these! Happy Organizing!
