Make a list of what needs a home. School paperwork, permission forms, mail, calendars, items to be returned, mailing supplies, keys, coupons and gift cards, pens and pencils, sunglasses, reminders and device charging stations are all possible items that could be integrated into the command center.
Your family may have other needs that should be considered. Do you run a business from home? Is anyone undergoing medical treatment? Do you save receipts for taxes or other purposes? The key is to tailor your command center to your needs. Include only the items that have a temporary life or consistently go in and out of your home.
