A Place For Everything and Everything in its Place!
Our mission is to help busy professionals, families, and senior citizens save time. We understand those rushed mornings are among all of us now that the kids are in school, extracurricular activities in the evenings, work is up to our ears. As we try to squeeze 36 hours of work and chores into just 24 hours on the clock, our busy routines make the days fly right past us. Especially with the new school year ringing in you might find your schedule is getting pretty packed. Let’s make a plan to make this year organized and slow down to enjoy each other more. To get started, set up a family command center!
Command Centers are a place of communication. It’s normally placed in a zone that everyone passes: a corner of a kitchen, a little nook in a hallway, in the center of your home office. The key is for everyone in your family to see it. Communicate what’s coming up within the next days or weeks to make sure everyone is on the same page. The different routines and schedules can often lead to more papers, more activities, and more chances to forget something. Here is some family command center inspiration to help get you started!
The Perfect Spot!
The key is for everyone in your family to see it. Communicate what’s coming up within the next days or weeks to make sure everyone is on the same page. The different routines and schedules can often lead to more papers, more activities, and more chances to forget something. Pick a zone that everyone passes through is the most effective: a corner in the kitchen, a nook in a hallway, or a mudroom. Here is some family command center inspiration to help get you started!
Have Fun with it and Customize!
Shelves and bins are key! If you don’t have built-ins, a bookshelf works just as good! Hooks are helpful just in case you want to hang bags like backpacks, your kid’s sports bag so they’re ready on the go!
Labeled baskets are awesome! Categorize and sort what goes in them like important forms: field trip forms, progress reports, anything with importance. Whatever fits your family’s routine!
Big calendars are a MUST. Dry erase boards or chalkboards are a common favorite because they’re re-usable versus a store-bought, paper calendar. With a dry-erase or chalk board, you can personalize it and write down any notes and reminders.
Pick a designated place on your family command center for a note board. A board for notes is so helpful especially when we have a thousand things going on at once. Write your chore chart, dinner plans, grocery lists, appointment dates, or important reminders here. It keeps everyone in the family apprised of what is coming up. Cork or magnetic boards will do the trick.
