Left Handers Club Calendar 2024

Each year we produce a left handers calendar running from right to left as a lot of people seem to enjoy it and ask for it. Like anti-clockwise watches, lefthanders find it a lot easier to read than right-handers so it is nice to confuse them! Use the links below to download the calendar. (click here if Sunday starts your week) Historically, we have called this a “backwards” calendar & whilst this is technically the correct name for it, we understand that there are many with strong feelings against linking “backwards” with left handedness. We are therefore just calling it the “Left Handers Club Calendar” – though to keep the SEO rankings we have left the old description in the links used to access the 2024 files

2024 Calendar with Sunday starting the week

We have had a lot of people telling us that having calendars starting the week on a Monday (which is the normal format in the UK) is not the same worldwide and in the USA and other places it is standard to have Sunday as the first day of the week. See our article about which day starts the week here.

Left-handed diary and planner for 2024 – 52 page spiral-bound book

We also have a limited number of the “physical” Left Handed Diary for 2024. It is a spiral-bound diary book that opens from left to right and is tailor-made for us left-handers. To make it easier to use, it features planning pages on the left side of each weekly spread (Monday – Sunday) and on the right, there is ample space for notes along with an interesting fact about left-handedness. The calendar also recognizes the birthdays of famous left-handed people.

Following pressure from us and Club Members, the publishers reversed the printing so that it opens from left to right – the proper direction for us lefties.

52 double-page spreads, one for each week of the year.
Size: 6.25 x 8.25 x 0.5 inches; 16 x 21 x 1.3 cm

  2. Fr. Patrick Beck says:

    Thanks…pb

  3. Elizabeth says:

    This is very helpful, but I am ambidextrous. I can read it either way, but it is very comfortable to read this calendar and look at the planner.

  4. Christine MCCOLE says:

    Such a rest for my brain as I pinpoint the dates with ease. Just shows some of the difficulties we face as left handers. The ruler was amazing and buying pens,scissors etc for left handers is such a relief.

    My grandaughter is also left handed. Knowing there are others out there that are left handed makes her happy.

  10. Sian Angus says:

    I am ambidextrous thanks to my school in the 60s/70s. Was the only leftie in my class so I sew right, cut right but can’t hold a pen or a spoon in my right hand. Total leftie there. Out of a mum and dad and 3 kids, me and sister are lefties

  11. Sian Angus says:

    Totally agree. Can’t use the numbers on the right either.
    I text using the middle finger of my left hand, anything else is wierd

  12. Sian Angus says:

    I want that calendar but don’t have a printer. Nowhere open publicly to print it. Grrrrrr

  13. Danny Amos says:

    I’m Left-handed but I don’t read backwards. The diary is ok.

  14. Cathy Price says:

    It was a 2020 calendar, not 2021. I’ve had entirely enough of 2020, thanks.

  15. Dave B says:

    This is brilliant, thank you , I had the 2019 calendar backwards and I can use this far better than a forward calendar, any day. At times I wished I had a left-handed keyboard as I most of the times hit the Y key rayher than the T key. As you I did then, rather should I say. As the going says, “Us Left-Handers are the only ones in our right minds” 😉

      Years ago the first thing I bought was a Lefthanded keyboard from anything Lefthanded. Was still using it up to us changing over to an iMac last year. Anything Lefthanded sells really good products

    I wanted to let you know how this site has improved my life!!! Quite awhile ago I got one of the kitchen kits. Oh my word….the can opener. I had no idea how much I had struggled all my life. What a wonderous contraption!!!. I wanted to sit there and open all the cans in the house!. And the left handed scissors. I always hated art etc because of scissors. I am 64 and until I used those scissors and could SEE where I was cutting again I had no idea. So even though I am on the older end I too am enjoying a life made easier by your implements. THANK YOU!!!!
