Maybe you have a nook in your kitchen that would make a perfect command center.

Perhaps you could use some wall space in your mud room or a hallway.

Or on the side of your fridge.

Things your command center might include:
- to-do lists
- a home management binder
- phone numbers
- your kid's soccer schedule
- a place for your laptop
- a meal plan
- the grocery list
- chore charts
- in/out boxes
- a bulletin board
- your favorite pen
- some pretty accessories
My command center is just a binder,a clipboard and a day planner in one of the cubbies on our school shelf and a calendar and cork board on the nearby pantry door. It isn't the most glamorous solution, but because we hope to either renovate or move before too long it just doesn't make sense to carve out a permanent space for it. For now, the system works for me, and everything has a place.
Do you have a command center? What can you do today to make it a more functional space for your family?
Please click through to some of the blogs I've featured above and leave comments for the people who created those lovely command centers.
