ADHD Organizing in 2024! Corkboard wall calendars for the home office

Last week, I shared some of my favorite chalkboard wall calendars. With a new year just around the corner, I’m excited to try out a large format organizational tool.

I was recently diagnosed with ADHD as an adult. And that has me hunting down tips and techniques to keep myself better organized that work for the symptoms I experience of ADHD. I tend to have trouble planning, and forget things easily.

I’ve long admired the idea of a snazzy wall calendar, but there are so many options that I’m feeling a little overwhelmed. But I do think I’m going to give this approach a try.

I happen to adore corkboards–they’re so easy to use, and can be decorated in so many different ways. And I was delighted to find so many attractive corkboard wall calendar options. Here are some of my favorites.

Corkboard calendar

First up, we have a pretty standard corkboard calendar–it’s a great size, and I love the tip to adhere the dates with velcro so that each month the calendar is easy to set up. With something this large, I think I’d stick with a solid color as Southern Living has done, but I don’t think I’d use two neutrals–for my office space, a colored ribbon would infuse a nice jolt of color.

If you only need to see a week at a time, Michaela made seven cute squares that might fill the bill. I like the way she switched up the positioning of the fabric on the squares to give it a bit more dimension without a lot of detail to distract from the week’s agenda.

I love this checkerboard style command center. It looks like it was from Pottery Barn, but I can’t find it on their website now, so you’d probably have to DIY it. Their version includes white boards and chalkboard tiles, but I’d like it all in cork.

I love Shannon’s collection of framed corkboards and think it would make a great calendar system–you could even number the frames themselves which would save a little space and give each frame an extra decorative element.

I love this embroidered perpetual calendar by Sara on Etsy. It’s hand embroidered on natural linen and has a piece of cork in the back so that you can pin and re-pin the numbers to date the calendar. I couldn’t resist including this one even though it doesn’t really have any space for weekly tasks.

This gathering inspiration for my wall calendar has been so much fun. And I’m not done sharing just yet–stay tuned for one more roundup of fantastic wall calendars for home offices.
