Have you heard of a family command center? If not check out the video tour of my family’s command center. You may ask yourself, “My family is so unorganized, how do I even start?”. In the video below I walk you through the first step, creating a list of what you want to organize and track.
List what you need to organize in your Family Command Center
Topics discussed in the video:
- It is list making time. Create a list of the “stuff” you need to organize, write down, or keep track of in a central location.
- Not all of it may fit into your family command center, you may use another area in your house.
- Talk with your family on their needs as well and incorporate into the list
Brainstorm list for what you can organize:
- Receipts: Budget tracking, short term (possible store returns), healthcare and longterm/insurance
- Grocery lists
- Meal plans
- Notes to family members
- School papers
- Kids art work
- Important phone numbers for babysitters
- Envelopes, stamps and address labels
- Daily routine
- Family calendar
- Paperwork to complete
- Pens, papers, tape, scissors and stapler
–> Check off the items above you want to organize
–> Add any missing item (check your kitchen counters, office areas, or that pile of papers for ideas)
Stay tuned for Day #2 of creating your family command center.
