Happy Tuesday, everyone! This week we are talking about everything home command centers. The beautiful thing about command centers is that they are completely personalized. Let’s start with the basics. What is a home command center?
A command center is a space in your home that you and your family can go to and see a variety of compiled information. Every family is different, so each command center will look different too! For this very reason I asked a few ladies to answer a few questions regarding their home command centers. They are all mothers, and between the three of them they have children ranging in age from three years old to ten years old. Without further adue, here is their advice! :)
For a family with no children, my husband and I use a different system. We have a hanging file sorter from Home Goods with two sections. One for outgoing mail and the other for receipts (it was a Good Find Friday!). We also have a pad of paper for a quick add of things to get the next grocery trip. I meal plan and make the full grocery list in my inkWell Press Meal Planner Journal. My husband likes things stored electronically, so we share our calendars via Google Calendar. I am also transitioning to using Asana for both personal and business, but I still love my paper planner, also, inkWell Press. ;)
As you can see, it all depends on what your family needs! A huge thanks to these ladies for taking the time out of their busy days to give their advice on Home Command Centers!!
Happy Organizing & be sure to share pictures of your home command center here!!
