So on January 1st, I walked into my local Target and scoured The One Spot for a 2014 calendar. I pick one up from that section every year. This year, however, there wasn’t a calendar in sight. In fact that section had a bunch of frilly pink hearts and red sprinkles for Valentine’s Day (I don’t hate Valentine’s Day btw guys). I walked up and down the aisles and couldn’t really find anything. There were some tear-off desk pad calendars available but nothing more than that.
I was a little irritated. Why would the best superstore ever not carry a 2014 calendar on January 1st, 2014? I just wanted a bunch of cute puppies on glossy paper the date right underneath, but apparently that’s too much to ask for.
Hence, I hit the interwebs to find my options. There are a plethora of indie artists who have cute 2014 calendars, but to my surprise, there are a ton of useful, free, and CUTE 2014 calendars online. Here’s my round up of my favorite picks.
