Papers, toys, craft supplies and endless random items are everywhere in my house. We are only a family of four and I feel overwhelmed all the time. I was finding the dropping place for almost everything was at the end of our countertop, right before you go downstairs.
I didn't have a good spot for organization on the main floor, I lack wall space and cupboard space but when you open the door to go downstairs I have a blank wall for a little organization centre. After some Pinterest research and figuring out the needs of my family, I came up with a simple layout, which includes a magnet board, shelf, clip board (holds our chore chart), calendar and file folders.
With back to school approaching I thought it was the perfect time to share my finished command centre and one I did for a client.
Originally I was going to make a sign that said, If not now, when? But my husband remembered this one from our childhood and I went with it instead.
For my clients, I included a chalkboard, magnet board, her calendar, file folders and a cute wall vinyl. We also switched out furniture and put an Ikea expedit shelf under for added storage.
Now go get ready for the kids to go back to school!!
