If you haven’t heard of a command center yet then let me introduce you to an organization tip that is going to change your life!
No matter if you are a busy mom wondering how to organize a family, or a student organizing your studies, a home command center is the best way to keep every part of your life decluttered and organized.
What Is A Command Center?
A command center is a dedicated space that keeps track of daily tasks, paperwork, and activities.
It is one place for all the important things!
You can put a command center anywhere in your home but I suggest you put it in an area that is easy access and everyone in the home sees it often.
You could have a Kitchen command center, on a desk, on a small unused wall, even in a closet command center!
How To Make A Command Center At Home
The best way to make a command center for home is firstly choosing a convenient and easy location. Think about where you have an unused space and where you pass frequently during the day.
Next, the command center needs to be equipped with a home for everything. This means you need organization supplies like clips, baskets and filing systems.
This space can get cluttered very easily and then won’t work for organizing your life. You need to keep this space decluttered.
