Happy New Year, everybody! I hope you had a wonderful holiday with your friends and family.
Speaking of the new year, have you made any goals or resolutions? I don’t remember the last time I actually made an actual “new year’s resolution,” but I often find a renewed motivation for various things in January as it always does feel like a good time to make a “fresh start” – especially when it comes to cleaning and organizing around the house! In fact, it was last January that I began creating a “command center” for our family – and it has served us very well over the past year. So well, in fact, that I wanted to encourage you to create (or refresh) your own by putting together a round-up of incredible command center ideas that are sure to get some organizational inspiration flowing.
If you’re trying to create a command center in your home, I’d encourage you to visit my post on “Creating a Command Center that Works for Your Family” – first, to find out what the heck a “command center” actually is, and then how to systematically approach creating one for your household. I used to think that command centers were just for families with multiple school-aged kids – but our little family of 3 has really benefited from having one! You can read more about the elements that we included in our command center here. You’ll also want to stop by my list of Command Center Must-Haves, which is a terrific annotated shopping list of sorts to help you find the perfect organizational items for your space.
Psst! Right now I’m giving away a FREE 11 page printable meal planning guide as a gift for new email subscribers – perfect for adding to your own command center! Sign up by clicking HERE and have the freebie delivered straight to your inbox!
I went back through my Pinterest Boards to re-discover some of my favorite command centers that helped inspire me to create my own last year (plus a few more that I’ve discovered since then!) and rounded them up for you here. No matter what kind of space you’re working with, I think you’ll find something helpful in this incredible list of beautifully organized spaces!
