The Dated 2020 Calendars are Ready!

I am super excited to be introducing the dated 2020 calendars today. They’ve been a bit of work getting them all finished up, I almost forgot about the year on a page ones all together, but they are all finished and ready for you to check out.

Tackle your future planning with the dated 2020 calendar

Creating calendar printables always comes with its share of challenges. First is finding the right colour palette and design. Then comes choosing the fonts. Followed by tweaking the layout, as much as a calendar and page size allows you too.

Every year I try my best to offer something I think you will like. I take all the feedback I receive, all the requests, and I use them to help me create the final products I share here. For example, with the dated 2020 calendars I’ve tried a few different things.

  • Created a more muted colour palette for those who’ve been asking for something a little different from the normal bright and bold colours
  • Added in some decorative elements in the form of the top banners
  • Kept the extra lined notes areas on all the monthly calendars
  • Went back to the old version of the half-size calendars
  • Will be adding in some extra planning pages

It’s my hope that you enjoy these calendars as much as I enjoyed making them for you.

The Dated 2020 Calendars

In past years I have shared the calendars in three posts. This year I’ve put them all into this one so you don’t have to wait for the version you want to come out. That means this post will be a little longer, but as always you can just scroll to the ones you want.

A few things to note before we dive right in.

The half-size versions of the monthly calendars have changed this year, so please be sure to read the coloured boxes before you print.

For the second year in a row I’m offering both Sunday and Monday start day versions. I’ve labeled the images for the printables to make it super easy to pick the one you want. Just make sure to double check you downloaded the right version before you print.

And now on to the printables!

Year on a Page

We’re going to kick off the collection with the 2020 year on a page printables. There are so many ways you can use these printables.

  • as a reference for coming months
  • to mark special dates in advance
  • to plan holidays and vacations
  • to track no school days
  • to track your menstrual cycle
  • as a habit tracker
  • as a mood tracker
  • cut them up and put them in your bullet journal
  • to mark down sports and extra curricular activities

There are so many ways to use year on a page calendars. I’m sure there are plenty I haven’t thought of yet.

Full-Size

The year on a page calendars were a little tricky this year. I wanted to include the accent colours for each month but they were too muted to use on the text which is why each month has a border around it.

Half-Size

The decorative banners across the top of the year on a page calendars are a little different from the monthly calendars. I could decide which accent colour I wanted to use on them, so I opted to use them all.

Single Page Per Month

I have a confession to make. I didn’t always see the value in a single page per month calendar. Personally, I need more room for my monthly planning. In the last couple of years though, I’ve come to really enjoy using single page calendars for certain things.

We keep one on our family command center that is just for things that affect the whole family. No school days, holidays, appointments, and other commitments get written on here so the whole family can see what’s happening.

I also use them for planning big projects. I print out the month (or months) that I plan to tackle the project in and map it out so I can see what I need to get done. By keeping large projects on their own calendars I can easily see where I’m at with them.

In the past I’ve also used them for meal planning, fitness tracking, reading logs, and tracking health issues.

Just like with the year on a page calendars, there really is no limit to the number of ways you can use a single page per month calendar.

Full-Size

Printing Tip: For the best printing results always make sure your printer is set to print ‘Actual Size‘. That way you’re sure to get the right margins for punching and binding your printables.

Half-Size

This year, the half-size versions are not set up for double-sided printing. After an overwhelming number of requests to have them back to the old version, I decided to go back to the original layout for these. After the 2020 calendars are shared there will be some new monthly planning pages that have been designed specifically to be printed on the blank side of these ones.

Two Pages Per Month

If you need a lot of room to plan your month, or if you like to have a lot of white space in your monthly planning, then the two pages per month calendar is probably the best fit for you.

Because each month is split over two pages the date boxes are larger and there’s room for a larger notes section. This is great for people who like to write down reminders, goals for the month, or just jot down things that happened.

I use a two pages per month calendar in all my planners. I find that they work great for pre-planning coming months and the amount of planning room they provide is perfect for keeping track of all the big things.

Printing Tip: I always leave a 1/2″ margin on all outside edges of my printables. To get the truest print fit, check your printer settings to see if you can adjust the print margins. I like to turn my printer margins to ‘0’ when I’m printing planner printables.

Getting the Most From Your Calendars

I don’t know about you, but I find that I’m hard on my planners. I’m constantly flipping back and forth, writing things down, and generally using them alot. Monthly calendars can take a real beating over the course of a year, or longer, if you like to keep the following year in your planner too.

I thought I’d share some tips that I’ve found helpful for keeping my calendars in good shape until I’m done with them.

Print them on heavier paper. I like to use at least 32 lb paper for my calendars. The heavy paper tends to hold up well over time. I use a lighter weight paper for my daily and weekly pages to help save a little money.

Use tabs. Whether you make you own from card stock or purchase some ready made ones, having each month tabbed not only makes it easier to find them, but I’ve found the edges stay in better shape.

Store them outside your planner when you can. If you like or need to keep your planner pages for the whole year, consider getting a basket or a box you can dedicate to storing the past months in. I find that the more full my planner gets the harder it is on the pages.

Print what you need. This is sort of like storing past months in a different box. If you print out only what you need, as you need it, the pages will last a lot longer. You could also consider dedicating a basket or box to storing pages you will need in the future if you like to print everything at once

What’s Coming Next

As I mentioned above, I have new monthly planning pages coming out very soon. As always, matching weekly, daily, and other planning pages will be coming out a little later this year.

  1. Hello. I’ve been reading your posts and loving your planner pages for a few years, but couldn’t convince my husband to give up our electronic calendar. I’m now working outside the house and actually have a need for my beloved paper planner again! Here in the Netherlands, the options are terrible. Therefore I’m so very happy I came across your Index! You give me hope that I’ll actually like my 2020 planner. (PS: eagerly awaiting your ideas for 2020 Weekly sheets.) Keep up the wonderful work!!

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      Hi Jaimie, I’m happy you get to use a paper planner again. I use both electronic and paper for different things, but I’d be lost without the paper one for sure. The weekly pages are coming out soon. I’m working on them plus some dailies.

  2. You are the best! Thank you so much for these!! I use them at work and I love the simple layouts and colors, it can be hard to find simple printouts for work.

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      You’re very welcome Ashleigh. I hope you enjoy using them.

  3. I love your work but I’m super sad about the half sized double sided option not being offered for 2020. I’m super in love with the 2019 half sized Monday start with the dbl sided print, it saved me a bunch of paper.

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      Hi Lorelei, thanks so much. I’m sorry about not being able to offer the double sided friendly version this year. It was a tough call to make, but so many people asked for me to put them back the way they used to be that I couldn’t ignore the requests. I might try bringing them back next year though, it just depends on how much time I have to work on them.

  4. First of all. Thank you! Thank you so much for all of the hard work that you put into these printables. Second, I just printed the 2020 month on 2 page with the Sunday start. Could you add the first blank page to make printing double sided easier? Thank you so much!

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      Hi LaVonne. Thank you so much for your kind words. I’m thrilled to hear that you like the printables. I didn’t add in the blank page for these ones because I designed the Monthly Planning Pages to print on the back of them. But I will definitely keep that in mind for next year.

    2. Connie Gartin says:

      Hey! I have the same request. So, I print the first page of January as a “stand-alone” and print the rest two-sided. It works!!
      🙂

      1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

        I’m happy it worked for you Connie.

  5. I can’t thank you enough for offering these great calendar pages. I love them! The fact that you have them out and ready so early is an amazing and wonderful bonus. Starting to plan next years school year already so it is so helpful to have the pages set to go. I would like to point out that 2019’s font was easier to read. Thank you so much. 🙂

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      I’m so happy you like them Joy. Yes, I did notice that 2019 was easier to read but I haven’t used a script font in a few years and wanted to give it a try. I will be keeping this in mind for next year though.

  6. Rick Griffin says:

    Hi! I just printed out the 2019 two-page per month calendar for the rest of 2019. I’ve been looking for this format longer than you would think.
    I want to print the 2020 version, but there is no “first page” included so that duplex printing will work like it did for the 2019 calendar.

    If I’m wrong, please tell me how to use duplex printing for the 2020 two-page per month. Or, if you can add a cover page or blank page at the beginning, that would be great.

    I just signed up for the newsletter.

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      Hi Rick, printing the full size two page calendars in duplex is really simple. Print pages 2 to 24 on duplex then print page one all by itself and that should work. I didn’t include the blank page because I made the monthly planning sheets to go on the reverse side. I’m so sorry for the confusion.

  7. I love your printables! Thanks for helping me stay organized.

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      I’m happy you love them Sara. I hope you enjoy using them!

  8. I love your planners, but I do wish you did a vertical format for the single page calendar.

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      Hi June, thank you so much for your kind words. I’m working on a vertical format. The problem I keep running into is that it ends up being really squished on the half-size pages, but I’ll see what I can do for next year.

  9. Thanks so much for all your hard work on these and for sharing them! I love them! You’re awesome 😎

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      Thank you for your kind words Megan, I’m thrilled that you like the calendars.

  10. Connie Gartin says:

    I also want to thank you more than words can say. Your work is amazing, and I appreciate how much time you must spend creating the calendars. They’re perfect!!!

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      Thank you so much for your kind words Connie. It’s warms my heart to know that you enjoy the calendars. I hope you find them useful for the new year.

  11. I really, really appreciate your hard work and generosity by allowing your calendar pages to be printed. I found your site in 2016 and I’m embarrassed to say I just signed up for the newsletter! The only thing that I would change about the calendars would be darker print–my eyes just are not what they used to be, but other than that, these are perfect. You are a blessing to all of us trying to get organized!!

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      Hi Sherry, thank you so much for your feedback I truly do appreciate it and will most definitely take it into consideration when making next year’s calendar. I’m happy that you’re finding the printables helpful.

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      Thank you Helena. WHich calendar did that happen on? I took a look at all of them, and couldn’t find it.

  12. Thank you for your continued faithfulness in providing us with these wonderful “works of art” that we so desperately need to help us live half-way organized lives. You are an amazing woman. I just finished printing the 2020 half-size, two-page spread of monthly calendars with Sunday start. I must agree with Joy – the size of the font is extremely small and very pale.- it’s a struggle – and we have a whole year ahead of us. Wondering if there’s any possibility of increasing the size of the font, or of making it editable allowing us to increase on our own?? Other than that – love your work!!!

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      Thank you so much for your kind words and feedback. I’m taking all suggestions into consideration when designing the next round of calendars. At this time there isn’t a way for me to redo them or make them editable. I’m so sorry that this design isn’t working out better for you. I can honestly say that I will not be doing such light colours in the future.

  13. Alli! Thank you thank you for continuing to offer your calendars. I am thrilled every year to be able to use them and refer others to your pages. I use these for so many things. Planners, planning projects, work, kids/grandkids, and so on. I wanted you to know how much I appreciate your continued efforts to update these every year. All the best to you and your family.

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      Thank you so much for your kind words Kat and for sharing my site with others. I’m thrilled that you use them every year and that you’re finding them useful.

  14. Barbara Kutra says:

    Thank you so much for all the work you have done on these calendars and planner pages. Just what I was looking for 😀

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      Thank you very much, Barbara, I’m thrilled that you are liking them.

  15. I jus found these and I love them- I’d like to suggest a monthly (2 pages per month) calendar with lines on the days if possible- otherwise this is a great place to get pintables- thanks for putting in the work and sharing

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      I’m working on making a lined version, it’s just a little problematic with the size of the boxes. Finding the right spacing is tough, but they are something I’m trying to figure out.

  16. Kristin Hammond says:

    Are these editable? I would like to add birthdays, school holidays, etc before printing them
    Thanks!

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      Hi Kristin, unfortunately, at this time, they are not editable. The program I use to design them doesn’t allow me to created editable field in the PDFs. I’m sorry I couldn’t be more help.

  17. Something pretty to look at when I turn the pages in my organizers. I have several organizers…weird huh? I appreciate you sharing your planner pages & calendars on your blog because it save me a lot of time creating my own. I have been following your blog since 2017.

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a nice comment Jannie. I’m so happy to hear that you’re enjoying using the calendar and planning pages.

    thank you once again. been almost more than a year since using your printables 🙂

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      I’m so happy to hear that you are enjoying using the printables. I hope you continue to find them helpful.

  19. Thank you for the full page monthly calendars! This is the third year I’ve printed yours out and it’s always so lovely seeing what colors and changes you made to them =) Also, thanks for making them free printables. Blessings!

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      You’re very welcome Laura. I’m happy that you like them and that you’ve been finding them useful.

  20. Hi, I love your printables. I would really be grateful if you could make money goals planner with dark colors. Something like a monthly financial goals planner page.
    Thank you

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      Hi Tasfia, I’d be happy to add that to my list. I just need some more details as to what you’re looking for specifically with a money goals planner. It’s not something I’ve ever looked into so I don’t know much about it.

  21. Olive Quilter says:

    Thank you so much for all the work you put into these wonderful planners. The ones I use are the perfect size for my needs and I would be lost without them. I like the changes on your website in 2020 that make it easier to find the calendars I am looking for.
    The change this year from the bold/bright colors to the muted ones is causing me problems on the “Month on a full page” calendars. I use several of these calendars each month to keep track of things (one page/Sx). At the end of the month I make a copy of the filled out pages to take to my appts. With the muted colors I can’t do this because when I copy the finished calendars at the end of the month all I can see is my own writing; none of the calendar information: month, dates, boxes etc.. Each month I now make one copy of the calendar. I then trace over the month and year, the days of the week, the dates of the month and all the lines that make the boxes for each day. This may not sound like much and if I was having to make my calendars I would have to do this and more, but it is quite draining for me much of the time. I didn’t have to do this with the brighter colors. I made the blank copies I needed, filled them out over the month and had no problem copying the calendars with the calendar info and the info I had added to them over the course of the month. I hope you can bring back the brighter/less muted colors to at least some of your calendars for 2021.
    I hope you and yours are staying safe and healthy during these difficult times.
    Many thanks and Best Wishes.
    Olive

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      Hi Olive, thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a wonderful comment. The new calendars for 2021 are much brighter, and the academic year begins July 2020, so if you’d like to use them for the last half of this year you totally can. I’m sorry the more muted colours didn’t work for you, and I can certainly understand not wanting to fill out two calendars each month. That’s alot of duplicating information. I hope the new design works much better for you.

  22. I’m a little late to the New Year Planning Party thanks to a surgery but I had to say… I love, love, love your “Coastal Dreams” design and color palette! Thank you for sharing your talents and sparing me from having to spend tons of time making my own. You are making my life so much easier to organize.

    1. ScatteredSquirrel says:

      Thank you so much Tressa. I hope that your surgery went well and that you’re all healed up.
