Family Command Center Supplies

With Suggestions to Match Any Style


  • Baskets to Hang on the Wall: You can either sort things by family member or by item type and then use one basket for each group of items.
  • Mail Organizer: Paper can easily be sorted by things you need to take care of, things you need to hold onto for reference, and things you need to shred.
  • Dry Erase Calendar: Dry erase calendars are the best because you can easily change things to stay up-to-date.
  • Magazine Holders: These are great to organize phone books, take-out menus, homework, permission slips, address books, and so on.
  • Wall File Organizer: This is sometimes easier to organize homework, permission slips, and other paper items.
  • Charging Station: Having one place to charge most electronics will make it easier for you to keep track of where they are at all times.
  • Cross-Cut Paper Shredder: Having a shredder set up and ready to go makes it easy to shred all junk mail the second it enters your house.
  • Office Supply Organizer: Keep pens, paper clips, scissors, a stapler, and other office supplies organized so everyone can always find what they’re looking for.
