Family command centers, get organized

Posted by  ·  August 17, 2012  ·  Last Updated: August 17, 2012

With schools starting I’ve got organization on my mind! Whether you have a bunch of kids to organize or just yourself- having a command center can make all the difference. Here are five fabulous ideas!

This system is functional and looks great. Love the style mixed with function.

This command center has a chalk board which is useful for changes. I love the bags too!


One of the biggest challenges in my home is papers. Mail, school papers you name it-they need a home. This command center solves this problem!

Pinched for space? This idea is for you. It doesn’t take a lot of room for this three shelf organizer and it has a space for everything.

Here is a great tutorial to make a fabulous command center in any hall way.

Do you have a fabulous command center share it, tell me what works for you!

    I really want the inbox style one for papers. Any idea on where to get those inbox style files?

    Love your command center. Here's mine. I was very limited on space and my daughter isn't in school so we're not dealing with all those papers yet. But can forsee a paper storage added to mine.

    LOVE the idea of a command center. We made one for us as a family a little while back and I recently created one for the kids as well now that they are in school. Check them out if you get a chance. I'd love any feedback you could give! Have a happy Friday!!

    Thank you so much for the inspiration (or swift kick I needed!) to get going on mine. We have a long hallway perfect for this, and a mess of letters, keys, and stuff. Have a wonderful weekend ;)
