An organized home is a happy home.
Everyone has their own method for organization, but there has to be a system in order to keep track of important documents, phone numbers and bills. Designating an area of your home to be an organization center is one good way to make sure major dates are not overlooked.
Components of effective organization centers:
- Cork board — for business cards, post-it notes and invitations
- Mail bin — to keep track of bills that need paid or letters that need sent
- Calendar — for remembering important dates such as birthdays and weddings
- Dry erase board — to leave notes for other family members and/or roommates
Good locations for an organization center include:
- Mud room/entryway
- The first thing you see when you walk through the door makes this spot a perfect place for reminders.
- Side of refrigerator
- The heart of any home is the kitchen. Why not make it the organization hub as well?
- Home office
- Add extra organization to an area that’s already wired for efficiency.
- A family room is a great place to house a shared message center.
- Empty wall space
- Any spot that is easily accessible and large enough to accommodate many elements will work well for this project.
Each person’s organization hub will meet different needs, but a perfectly tailored command center is one of the best gifts you can give yourself if you find that you often forget important details of every day living.
Use these examples as inspiration, and feel free to mix and match ideas to make it the most effective for you.
There’s only one rule for a command center: pick a spot that’s seen often to make the most of your reminders.
