Command Center

I'll start with the command center. A lot of people like to put the command center in the front entryway, garage or in the mud room. The great thing is you don’t need a lot of space. If you have kids in school, you know how hard it is to keep all the school papers organized. A great command center will not only help you with that but can also keep your whole family organized every week.

Things to include in your command center include hooks, baskets or file folders for papers, a place to hold mail, a white board and a calendar. Check out my favorite command centers below to get inspired to create your own.

For each of their three kiddos they have a white board to write their schedule plus a clipboard to hold all of their papers. This would make the mornings getting ready to go to school go so much smoother.

Here each child has a place for their backpack, their papers and their daily schedule. It's hard to see in the picture but each of these file holders is labeled as well with categories such as to do, information, file, etc. They have also included a monthly calendar which includes the entire family’s schedule.

Here's a great idea to steal for your command center, they have a blank calendar framed and then they write the month, days, and any notes on top of the glass with a dry erase marker. The next month they can wipe clean and start again. The hanging storage pictured here has a place for pens, paper, markers, expenses, receipts and misc.

If you're wondering how to take a basic entry and create your custom command center take a cue from Brittany from Georgia. She started with a plain wall and then painted the bottom portion white and then installed the horizontal 1” x 4” with screws in the studs and installed these hooks on it. Then she also installed the vertical strips. Now she has a custom command center with two hooks for each of her daughters.

This command center has everything you need to keep your family organized, a mailbox, a monthly dry erase calendar and a place for notes and the endless to do lists. I love the cute farmhouse décor that ties it all together.

Linen Closet Organization

How about that linen closet? Does yours look like the ones below or is it more like a catch-all mess where all the things end up? (arm up here for the latter)

This's the reason, I recently took on my linen closet. First, I made a plan and took an inventory of what should be in the closet and how many baskets I would need. Then, I hit up Amazon and picked out several matching baskets. When they arrived, I took everything out of the closet and created a spot with a label for every single item that stayed.

This's the perfect time to purge the things that you no longer need and donate them to a charity like Goodwill or Salvation Army. Check out below some gorgeous linen closet inspirations and get started on your own linen closet makeover.
