Running a home comes with so many moving parts. There are different schedules happening all at once, appointments to keep, birthdays to remember, and bills to pay. There are so many things that are going on that it can be difficult to keep it running smoothly. That is why I love having a family command center. This is our home hub where I can make sure that everyone is where they need to be with all the things they need to have in tow. My favorite tip from Declutter in Minutes will help you take another step toward creating a home you love.

A command center sounds quite intimidating but actually, it is not only simple to set up, but it’s also even easier to use. Think of it as a central location where you can keep all the time-sensitive events that happen with your family. From the day-to-day things such as dinner and bedtime to weekly practices, and annual fundraising events. When you have one spot to plan it will help you to know who needs to be where and when without worrying if you forgot anything.

Family command centers come in all shapes and sizes so no matter the size of your home or the size of your family you can tailor a solution that works for you. The two most important parts of a command center are the what and where. What do you want to keep track of in this area and where do you want to set it up? Once you have those two things decided on you are good to get creating!

No matter what size home you live in you can find a setup that fits. If you have the room you can have a setup that includes organizers that will streamline everything you need.

If you do not have the room for a full wall you can go a bit smaller.

Maybe having all that information out in the open is not appealing to you, no problem you can still have a setup behind doors that is just as efficient as one that is out in the open.

Working from home is another area that can really benefit from a central organized hub.

When it comes to setting up a command center there are no rules. The goal is to streamline the running of your home, family, and office in a way that is easy to keep up with. Whether that be from an elaborate setup on your family room wall, a DIY area near your kitchen, or a brightly colored binder on your kitchen counter. If it works for you it is a success.
