Over the years, I organized many family command stations. Personally, I love to do them because usually they are in the kitchen and I feel the kitchen is the heart and center of the home. It's where everyone goes each morning and each night. So, it makes sense that the family command station is there. But keeping it organized can be an issue.
Here are some tips on how to keep a family command station organized.
Tip 2: Have a place to store your papers for the week. Here is my cute little family command area. And, yes, I do keep it like this all the time. The magnet chalkboard weekly paper sorter is a DIY project I made when I just remodeled my kitchen. Here's the link if you want to make it.
Tip 3: All you need is one drawer. A drawer with drawer organizers that is, to sort your pens, notepads, scissors, etc... If it is a small drawer, like mine, it's important to keep it organized. So, the little drawer inserts work great.
Tip 4: Use part or all the upper cabinet for storage. You can store your purse, light bulbs, candles, coupons binders, etc... in the upper cabinet to keep the surface clear. I like not to see these items, so a cabinet door works well too.
Tip 5: Make sure everyone knows where everything goes. After setting up your area, show everyone where everything goes. You may need to do this a few times, but that's ok. Labeling each area in your command station helps a great deal.
Tip 6: Hang the calendar. I like to hang the calendar on the inside of the upper cabinet door. I use a 3M Command Hook to attach it to the cabinet door. The thin utility hooks work great to hold a calendar.
Tip 7: Hang the keys. The keys can be attached to the backsplash or the inside of the upper or lower cabinet. I wrote a post about places to store keys. Feel free to check it out.
