Awesome Ideas for DIY Family Command Centers
A command center is a perfect location to have all your essential information in one easy to find spot. No more searching the junk drawer or anywhere else for this vital info! You may be wondering what kind of items belong in a command center, so I wanted to take a second to let you know what we like to keep in ours.
- Calendar – Have a family calendar available so everyone can see what is on it. Try to color code it, so at a glance, you can quickly see what’s coming up. This will help little kids figure out the schedule too.
- A Place for Mail – Using baskets or boxes to put incoming and outgoing mail is beneficial. It’s a great addition to the command center.
- Stationary, pens, and pencils. Having an easy to find location for all your stationery supplies will save you the headache of searching the house for a pen when you need one!
- Keys and other miscellaneous items. It’s important not to turn the command center into a catch-all, but keeping items like keys, tape, cords, and other things like that together is a good idea.
