Where would we be without calendars? With 2022 upon the horizon, now’s the perfect time to pick up your next calendar for the new year.

Personally, I put a lot of thought into the calendars I hang up around my house. So much so that I struggle to choose just one. An adorable collection of dog portraits or postcard-perfect holiday destinations never fail to catch my eye.

Here’s a pro tip if you want to create a Pinterest-style bedroom in the new year — choose your next calendar wisely because once the year is finished, you can take apart your calendar and use the images as wall art. Instead of spending a ridiculous amount of money on professional prints or using up all of the ink in your home printer, simply grab a pair of scissors and trim the edges. You can even use them for scrapbooking or pin them to a corkboard.

2022 Wall Calendars

If you’ve got space on your walls to hang up one of these calendars, consider yourself blessed. Wall calendars are a great way to get an easy snapshot of the month ahead and how far away your plans are. Plus, tell me you don’t love to check out what photograph is paired with your birthday month and whether or not you agree it was a fitting choice. We see you.
