Copy paper, photo paper, or cardstock – depending on how you like your calendar to look. I recommend using the photo paper. It will make your printable a lot more crisp and vibrant in color.


Pens, pencil, fine point markers


With 8 different designs, you can do more than just writing down birthdays and to do’s. Here are 7 other ways to use your January 2022 monthly calendar.

1. Meal Prep- Plan out your meals for the whole month!

2. Positive motivational quotes – Keep yourself in a good vibe with a new motivational quote each day of the month.

3. Daily Doodle Challenge – Draw or doodle based on a topic each day of the month. For example, Monday is daisy doodle, Tuesday is black and white pattern day, Wednesday is rainbow doodle day, etc.

4. A Word A Day Challenge – Learn a new word a new for the whole month of September.

5. Craft Activities for the Kids – Avoid getting overwhelmed each day with a new kids’ activity theme so you’re not overwhelmed trying to find activities for the kids to do.

6. 7 min exercises each day for a month – Exercises can be tough for a lot of people, me included so I started doing exercises that are 7 minute or less each day because I know I can achieve that little amount of mins. Once I’ve done one 7 minute exercise, it motivates me to do another 7 minute exercise. By the end of the day, I’ve done 28 mins of exercises and feeling great!

7. Daily Gratitude – write one thing you’re grateful for each day.
