Mon Jul 9, 2018, 05:57 PM

All I wanted was a 2018 paper calendar with little squares I could list appointments, things I had t

to do and NOBODY sells them! I am desperate.

I went online and couldn't work the damn download function on my printer.

But it's mid year and all of the calendars that are on sale are 2019.

This is getting ridiculous.

Anybody have any ideas for me?

1. I use the calendar on the computer

and print out the months so I can write in the appointments on the days.

8. If you're looking for the wall-size, a lot of businesses give them away...

and would still have 2018. (Car repair shops and places like that). I usually end up with about 5 per year (including the one from church).

The 2019 calendars are starting to pile up. Soon. They'll get some money from me, soon.

10. timeanddate.com Create Printable Calendar

https://www.timeanddate.com/calendar/create.html

Choose monthly and you'll get 1 month per page with squares you can write in.

I buy a couple every year, one for my purse one for my work bag. Saw them also at CVS recently in the stationary section.

16. You can get school year calendars this time of year though

They go July 2018 through June 2019. Use the 2018 part and then get a new one for 2019.

18. I get somewhere between 30 and 40 every year because every organization

I donate to sends me one. Already have about 6 for 2019. I take most of mine to a thrift shop that supports the women's shelter.

19. Yes. Many of the nonprofits I donated to send me calendars and I had a lot of them...

I should probably give money to a cause I believe in and get the calendar. I have saved my back calendars and I can check those organizations out.

20. Get a day planner

They'er very popular right now and places like TJ Maxx have 18 month planners (July 2018-December 2019). The pages are usually weekly.

Also check craft stores (Michael's, etc).

22. The problem is not that I can't find one, it's that I can't find a 2018 one.

My supermarket has plenty of day planners, but only for 2019. I'm SOL for the rest of this year.

23. Many that I see now start at July/August 2018

Look at the planners aimed at students (which have the academic year). I saw about a dozen different ones at TJ Maxx the other day. Go beyond a supermarket-- try a craft store or a place like Staples (or online).

A quick Amazon search for "18 month planner July 2018-2019" gives me 223 results.

There are also brands (Erin Condren) where the dates are blank and you fill them in yourself.

31. Yes, I know. But that's 3 months away....

My husband has his own calendar and he's able to keep track of appointments he has. If I can't find another calendar, we'll have to share his for a while.

Search on line. They also have the first 3 months added to the next year. I've purchased them for years. They're great.

26. Try a website called "scattered squirrel." She has free

templates that you can print out. Lots of options depending on what size you want.

I know what you mean. For work, I need to be able to see the month all at once, and you really can't do that on a phone calendar.

35. Here's another free printable calendar site:

Link: https://www.calendarsthatwork.com/

All sorts of choices including plain or fancy. We use these for all sorts of things like a sheet to help remember our recycle pickup days.

Print a whole year's worth if you like!

37. Two suggestions:

Hallmark stores give a small book-type calendar (will fit in a jacket pocket or purse) for free. You may have to sign up for their rewards card.

Levenger sells a variety of calendars and planners. Their weekly margin calendar for 2018 is on sale now for $4.85. It is convenient for use on a desk because each page covers one week, and it is a long, narrow page (16" wide by 4+" high), so the calendar doesn't cover much prime desktop real estate. They used to sell a similar calendar without dates on them, so you could fill in whatever dates you started with and tear off the pages if you didn't need a record.
