Don’t you like that phrase “command center?” Clearly, your command center is a place where you’re in charge, you’re in control, you make things happen. We like the idea of having what you need when you need it, where you need it, and how you need it. This is having what you use most often out in your working space, your command center.
When my kids were growing up, I found a bulletin board to be essential as my home command center. With a cork bulletin board and a few colorful pins kept stuck in a designated corner of the board for handy use, I could quickly pin up notices of scout meetings or soccer games and parent lists, school parties, church bazaars. When events passed, I’d take them down, keeping most important upcoming events front and center. My goal was for everyone to look at the board when they came home to find reminders or important notes so we all kept on track.
Clearly, your command center is a place where you’re in charge, you’re in control, you make things happen!
Shelves or hooks or other holders of various kinds can be mounted around that message board for important tools. I found when I was living away from home the first time – in a college dorm – that one of the most important things in my command center was a place for keys. If you can’t get in and out, there’s not much else you can do, is there? Since then, whenever I move someplace new or even visit for a while, the first thing I do is find a home for my keys.
Tools to help build and organize your command centers are available and so is the help if you need it. We have ideas when you need them and the experienced staff to get the work done. Check out our cleaning, organizing, and design plans.
