A Family Command Centre is a place to keep everything you use to run your household. Routines, checklists, school stuff, mail holder, go zone, calendar, notice board - anything that helps you keep track of everyday life.
Having a Family Command Centre will help you automate all the little jobs that, if forgotten, can turn into big headaches - think menu planning, bill paying, week planning, school paperwork, assigning chores, remembering birthday shopping..
There are a number or different ways you can organise this space in your home, but keep 2 things in mind:
- It has to be given a permanent home so that you and your family get into the habit of using it and checking it every single day
- The way you design it needs to suit your work style and the amount of space you have availble, so you are more likely to use it
A few great examples:
|tucked neatly into a file box|
|In a binder|
|On the side of the fridge|
|personalised bags and blackboard|
|Great use of space and colour|
I love all of these, so many great ideas! You can see more on my Family Command Centre Pinterest Board.
