Trying to plan out your whole year? This free printable year at a glance calendar is great for long-term planning and organizing. See the big picture of the whole year or view the year in quarters.
Every new year, I like to take a look at the upcoming year as a whole.
It’s so helpful to be able to see the months and years ahead. It helps me as I try to plan and organize events, vacations, and other important dates in my calendar.
I’ve found that the best way to do this planning is to see the whole year mapped out on one page. That’s where a printable year at a glance calendar comes in handy.
What is a Year at a Glance Calendar
A year at a glance calendar is a planning reference tool instead of an actual planning worksheet. It allows you to see all of the months and days in a year on one single page.
I like to have a year at a glance calendar printed out at my desk or on my refrigerator so I can easily see all of the months in the year.
Year at a glance calendars are especially helpful if you like to think of your year in quarters. Each row of the year at a glance calendar is three months, or one quarter of the year.
I’ve created my own year at a glance calendar printable every year since 2018. Now that we’re in another new year, I’ve created the newest version of the free printable to share with you.

How to Use a Year at a Glance Calendar
At the start of every year when I was working, we would get a new year at a glance calendar showing the holidays. I would always print it out, highlight the holidays, and also plan my vacation time. I loved being able to map out the big events for the upcoming year.
I found myself looking forward to getting the new year at a glance calendar. So now that I’m a stay at home mom, I decided to create my own pretty printable version.
Year at a glance calendars aren’t just for planning vacations (although that’s a lot of fun). You can use them to look ahead at the year for lots of different purposes. Here are just a few ideas for how to use a year at a glance calendar.
