15 Ways to Create a Command Center Like These Super Organized Families

By  | 

Who’s not busy? No one? That’s what I thought! Between the homework, soccer practice, and birthday party invitations, I was inspired to start looking for some command center ideas to make our household a little more organized.

The kitchen and front door are great locations for a Family Command Center, so I’ve included a few Kitchen Command Centers below, as well as a DIY Organization Station.

I love the repurposed use of the Vintage Toast Rack Inbox and the Revamped Family Chalkboard Central Command Center.

My favorites are the Back to School Station and the This Week/Next Week Command Center since they are just perfect for the busy weeks ahead.
