10 Back to School Command Centers to get you organized

Every once in a while I get the itch to refresh my house. This usually involves painting walls and rearranging furniture but most recently I’m on a mission to get organized (and maybe rearrange everything while I’m at it…just one more time).

My entryway needs some major attention and I love the idea of creating a command center for calendars, bills, meal planning, mail, coupons, shopping lists, keys, etc.

For those of you sending kids back to school in a few weeks, a command center is a great way to get organized for the school year!
