Why you need a Command Center and how I refreshed ours!

As the name suggests, the command center is the space from where we command the family. It is where we keep track of our appointments, invitations, school paper, bills to pay, mail, grocery list, goals, to-do lists, meal plan, and much more. A monthly calendar is an essential feature of the command center. However, it also needs to offer space for an organization system that will prevent your home from getting cluttered.

Spring Cleaning Challenge – Day 8 – Garage and outdoor areas

We made it! Today we are going to work in the garage and outdoor areas. I would like to thank you all for following along with the Spring Cleaning and Organizing Challenge.

If you don’t have a multipurpose room, you can use this time to organize one of these spaces in your home.
