It could be the mudroom, the kitchen office or the entryway. Whatever and wherever it is, the “family command center” – where all things essential to the family’s daily operation live – can be magic when organized right.
First – determine what belongs there. Is it keys, backpacks, sports gear, calendars, birthday invites? Then shop your local container or organization store to pick up hooks, baskets, bulletin boards and other sorting goods.
Next – make a commitment as a family to keep it organized and for the more active family, that can be a daily chore.
Finally – revel in being exactly where you’re supposed to be, when you’re supposed to be there and with everything you need.
