2009 Work Week Calendar

*UPDATE: The calendar has been updated for 2010 and is available for download here: 2010 Work Week Calendar.

Several individuals found the 2008 Work Week Calendar useful, so I’m being proactive and posting the 2009 Work Week Calendar a few weeks early. As I mentioned before, this work week calender is based on the badge-sized calendars that my previous employer used to hand out.

Please note that January 1st marks the first work week of this calendar, which isn’t ISO 8601 compliant. The only difference in this case is that the last week of December is shown as work week 1 of 2010 instead of work week 53 of 2009. Regardless, you’re more than welcome to change the last week as you see fit.

I have also included a candy bar style calendar based on David Seah’s Compact Calendar, and as always this calendar is completely free to download and use.

For 2009, I’m providing an Excel version, an iWork Numbers version, and a PDF version so hopefully no one gets left out.

Feel free to modify the calendar any way you like, and be sure to relay any mistakes or corrections I may have missed.

    Another difference between your calendar and ISO 8601 is that a new work week is supposed to start on Monday, not Sunday as you\’ve shown. So for example, Sunday 4th Jan 2009 should be part of WW1, not WW2., shouldn’t it?


  2. TOMAS

    @Tom Joy – Yes, that is correctÒ€”Sunday January 4th, 2009 would be part of WW01 in an ISO 8601 compliant calendar since the work week starts on Monday.


  3. Thanks for the great calendar! You just saved me a ton of work, although, I was looking for something like the first calendar, but now I really like the Candy Bar calendar a lot more. Regardless, I really appreciate it.

  4. @Brian – You’re welcome, and glad to hear that it saved you some work! The Candy Bar style calendar is especially nice since it has extra room for important notes, that’s why I had to include it since it was such a great idea and design by David Seah.


  5. Linda Lam

    Thanks for providing this. I’ve downloaded 2008 one previously and found it really useful.

  6. Ricardo

    Hi Tomas,
    do you have already the calendar for 2010?

    Thank you in advance.

    Ricardo /Brazil

  7. @Linda Lam – It’s great to see that you’re a repeat customer and thanks for the comment! πŸ™‚

    @Ricardo – Admittedly, I manually create each of these calendars (which reminds me, I need to figure out a way to automate it πŸ™‚ ) so I’m only current to 2009. IF I get a chance to create the 2010 calendar, you’ll be the first to know! πŸ˜‰

    What a joy to find this on the net. it’s saved me a load of work. I’m running a couple of businesses in Brazil and nothing like this exists here.

    For the vast majority of Brazilians, there are four weeks to a month and twelve months to a year so 48 weeks to a year. Would you believe it, even some University Professors come up with this figure?

    Anyway I can easily adapt in Portuguese. Thanks again!!

  9. @Michael – I’m glad to hear that the calendar saved you a load of work, and that’s interesting to hear that a majority of Brazilians consider a year to have 48 weeks!

    By the way, feel free to leave a link to your Portuguese calendar if you decide to upload somewhere. πŸ˜‰

  10. Griffin Rees

    I did not really like the calendar….it did not meet my needs. πŸ™

  11. @Griffin Rees – Sorry to hear that the calendar did not meet your needs—also, I would be more than happy to try and incorporate any feedback you may have to make the calendar better—just let me know!


  12. Jason

    Thanks so much for this! I just found it via Google and it’s exactly what I needed to help me build a document at work. I hope you’ll do one for 2010!

    Venkat: Thanks for Very useful calender planner, which i am using for aircraft maintenance. Is it possible to get the candy bar weekly calender in row.

  14. @Jason – Will definitely try to get one out for 2010—it has pretty much become a tradition by now. πŸ˜‰

    @venkateswaran.s – You can easily change the format on the candy bar planner by copying all the columns, then going to Edit>Paste Special and in the Paste Special dialog box, chose the ‘Transpose’ option and that will paste all the columns into rows. Let me know if that helps. πŸ™‚

  15. BJ

    Cool, hope to get the one for 2010 as well.


  16. Cindy

    When will you have the 2010 work week calendar available?

  17. carine

    Hi Tomas,

    Tks for the 2009 calendar week, it is very useful to me !


  18. @BJ, @Cindy – I’m swamped with work and life at the moment, but will definitely aim to have the 2010 calendar posted by November.

    @Carine – You’re very welcome! πŸ™‚

  19. Just wanted to say thanks, I order from a lot of manafacturers who quote their delivery in terms of weeks. Up until now I’d been using a mouse mat with the weeks on it (which I’ve misplaced), and I have just been huffing and puffing for the last 10 minutes and had resigned myself to have to count the weeks.

    But now thanks to the power of google – I have been saved an extremely boring task, I’ve even downloaded your excel spreadsheet and actually put in into my orders & delivery spreadsheet, so I am no longer reliant on the mouse mat.

    Thank you and I look for to the 2010 version

  20. candice

    Found your calendar through Google. Our office and clients use the week calendar to schedule projects but for some reason documents like yours are hard to find on the web. So thanks!

  21. @Jo Blood – I’m very happy to hear that the calendar has saved you some time and energy, that’s awesome! πŸ™‚

    @candice – You’re very welcome. πŸ™‚

  22. oswald

    Thanks for the 2099 work-week calander. When will you have the 2010 calander?

  23. In the UK and other EU countries, week commencing December 25th 2009 is week 53, with week number 1 starting w/c 4th January 2010.

    This for accountancy and payroll purposes.

    Most calendars I have seen so far class Jan 4th as week 2.

  24. Gary

    Thank you Tomas, For this professional help tool…. and regardless of ISO whatever… thanks for keeping it in alighnment with Sunday as the First day of the Week…The large corporation I work for will never go the “NEW” ISO 8601″


  25. Chelsea

    Hey there, I wanted to thank you for the 2009 calendar you made. It made my life so much easier all year. I’m hoping you’ll come out with a 2010 version. Few free online calendars come with the week numbers included.

    Once again, thanks and I hope to see a 2010 calendar soon!

  26. Linda Lam


    Looking forward for the 2010 WW Calendar from here πŸ™‚
