First, what is a command center?
For me a command center is more than just a place to put your keys or drop off your mail. When I think of the word command it makes me think of something or someone that gives direction instructions and tells you what to do. That’s exactly what I wanted, my family command center to do. I like to use my family’s command center as a central place to keep track of the systems and schedules that I use in my home. It’s not just for me to look at it’s for everyone in the family so you can all stay organized and on track.
Where could you set it up?
Family command centers come in all shapes and sizes and what’s great about them is you can totally customize it to your specific needs. Some families like to keep their command center on the side of their fridge while others might want to put it in a mudroom or an entryway of their house. Basically you can put your family command center anywhere that your family can see it and use it. In my house the side of a fridge just wasn’t enough space for all the things I wanted to keep track of and we actually don’t even have a mudroom. Then what I decided to do is put my command center on the inside door of my office closet. It’s a nice central location in my house but the good thing about putting it on a door is family or friends come over. I could easily close the door and not everybody needs to know what my family schedule and routines are. I can just put it away. As I said each family command center is going to be a little bit different depending on the family.
