Organize with a Family Command Center

Keeping track of a family’s schedule is a huge job, add homework papers, notes, permission slips, and all the extracurricular needs for each child and the kitchen counter can easily become a cluttered mess. At least that how it always was at our house . . . walk in the door and drop everything on the counter. It’s amazing we didn’t have more lost item meltdowns.
The Family Command Center
can take that counter clutter and organize it in a place your family will love….

TYCC - Command Center
I love the simplicity of this space.
A chalkboard for chores.
Hooks for totes or book bags.
And a shelf for photos and calendar.
An easy afternoon project to organize your family.
Kitchen Command Center - TJ
This space is so practical.
File folders for each family member –
add an in folder and out folder to help your
children keep track of notes and permission slips.
Cups for keys and “do not forget” items
and a magnetic board for pictures, cards, and invitations.
A great space for families with teens and adults.
For the family with plenty of space.
The organization wall is neat and provides a little more
storage space than some of the others.
Look at the locker wall beyond.
I love the individual nooks with hooks and baskets.

    I love these Debs, esp that last one! I don’t have children yet but am always looking for tips to be more organized around the home. Thanks for these, I’ll be clipping to Evernote for future reference when I’ll need all the components!
