Family Command Center Organization
The next home organization idea that I want to talk about deals with your busy schedule. Because I always have a lot of people reach out to me about how to juggle everything that #momlife throws their way.
Which makes sense, because we’re juggling a lot.
And if you don’t have a system in place to stay on top of everything, you’re going to be a little frazzled.
And my favorite way to keep #momlife organized is with a family command center.
You don’t need to be super crafty to set one up. And you don’t need a lot of room if you don’t have it.
I created a command center on top of a small bookshelf that kept me organized for years.
It’s more about recognizing what all you need to organize and then putting together a system.
I wrote a comprehensive blog post that will walk you through planning out your family command center and an article on some of the best family command centers that I found online for a little inspiration.
So if you need to organize this part of your life, you need to check out these articles.

Overcoming Paper Clutter
Now, one of the most time consuming (and difficult) things to keep organized is paper. So let’s take a look at some home organization ideas here.
I don’t know if you’ve ever spent a day, weekend, or longer sorting through paper, but omg it sucks. It’s one of my least favorite things to organize because it seems like it’s neverending.
But if you have stacks of paper lying around, you have to tackle it. Trust me. It will make you feel so much better once it’s done.
Then you have to create a system to prevent it from piling up again. Which is actually pretty easy to do.
And I break down the entire process — from sorting to storing — in my comprehensive post, Busy Mom Hacks to Conquer Your Paper Clutter.

Digital File Organization
It’s also super important to keep your digital files organized, too.
For one, we only have so much storage space, and if you don’t have your files organized, you’re likely to download or save something again because you couldn’t find the original.
On top of that, you’re wasting soooo much time looking for stuff!
Just imagine what it would be like if you could open your computer and find anything that you’re looking for right away.
Well, you don’t have to wish and hope for a digital organization fairy to show up and get you organized. You can totally do it yourself!
And this article will teach you how to organize your digital files like a total pro.

The bathroom is also a trouble spot for many people.
We collect a lot of face creams, hair products, and so on over the years. And they all end up in the bathroom cabinets.
And while I always recommend decluttering the stuff you don’t actually use, there’s still a lot left.
And if you want to be able to find all that stuff, you have to know where it is.
In other words, you need to organize it.
And this is even more crucial if you have a small bathroom.
Either way, you need to maximize your space to get the most out of it.
