Unspirational 2021 Large Monthly Planner Calendar

i'd rather be sleeping

At first glance, this calendar looks like it will have an inspirational quote on each monthly spread that will encourage, inspire, and maybe motivate. Upon closer inspection, however, the quotes are slightly skewed to the sassy and pessimistic side--upending the whole concept of "inspiration"! 

Taken from the Instagram account @unspirational by Elan Gale, the quotes are a bit UNspirational, reminding the reader to "Be grateful for what you have. . . it's all you're getting." Trickery at its finest! This 2021 monthly planner has significant planning space and slips easily into a bag, backpack, or briefcase. Plus, a favorite UNspiration on every spread makes planning more enjoyable.

  • 12-month planner: January through December 2021
  • Each monthly spread features large grids with planning space to jot down meetings, appointments, vacations, and more
  • Includes widely celebrated and nationally recognized holidays and observances
  • 8 1/2" x 11" monthly planner (17" x 11" when open)
  • Includes pages for 2022 planning, names and numbers, and notes
