20 Fabulous Command Centers to Get Your Life Completely Organized

20 Fabulous Command Centers to Get Your Life Completely Organized at The Happy Housie

Back to school is nearly upon us.

This weekend is the Labour Day weekend…kind of the unofficial “last” weekend of summer around these parts.

Kids will be piling into their brand new skinny jeans and high tops (oh wait, is it still ’88??) and heading to school come Tuesday morning.

Which means that I need a plan.  And it’s not too late, right?  To get a little organization into my life before the busy routines of school have us whipping through the year at a rabbit’s pace again?  And my plan to get organized for this year definitely involves setting up a functional command center.

I have been keeping my eye out for amazing Command Centers for over a year now… online and on Pinterest (of course:).  Here are some of the inspiring ideas that I have found to help me figure out what the heck to do with all the paper etc. etc. etc. that floods our countertops on a daily basis – if you want some more ideas check out my Pinterest board Command Center Central.  I hope you find a some tips and inspiration to help make your life a little {or a lot!} more organized.

    These are simply awesome… I feel the clock ticking here too and I hate rushed mornings or when I’m running out the door after them with forgotten library books! I’ll have to put a comment center on my to-do list next week! Enjoy your long weekend, Krista!

    I’m feeling inspired Krista, but it would be so much kinder if all you ladies came and helped me in person. I have 5 projects going and hope springs eternal!

    • Krista Aasen says
