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.
