20 Inspiring Home Command Centers

I am creating a command center. School will be back in session before we know it. This year Wyatt will be in kindergarten and Mason will be in Pre-K. Last year I was so emotional about sending Wyatt to Pre-K, but this year I am so excited to be sending two of my three off to school. Maybe it is mean of me or maybe it is because this summer I have been here with them the entire break and I am nearing my wits end. I am so thankful that I am able to work from home with the kids, but with all three of them and no job outside of the home to escape to (even if it is just for a little bit) has me frazzled. I can’t start a project, a blog post, an order or a sentence without being interrupted a zillion times by Mason hit me, Wyatt took my pencil, I want a drink or my personal favorite come wipe my butt.
I have found myself thinking long and hard about how I am going to manage getting both of the boys up, dressed, fed and dropped off at school on time all while carting around a 9 month old. The only solution I can think of is a consistent routine and a command center where the boys can grab and drop off their book bags each day. Two nights ago I stayed up in bed while everyone else slept and pinned command centers to my hearts content. Today I went out and bought everything I needed to create one in our laundry room. The only other thing I need are hooks for the boys’ coats and book bags. My husband said I am a nerd but I say he is as messy as the rest of them and I am fed up with cleaning up after everyone!
Please be kind and pin the ones you like from the original source.

  2. Don't feel bad, I am ready for mine to go back to school too. I work from home and its hard to keep 3 kids entertained while the baby naps so I can work during nap time. I know when school starts back I'll get more done each week. Also when I need to go into the office or meet with someone I can take the baby with me but not always all four of the kids so I have to find someone to watch the older 3. I have an area behind my front door that has hooks that they hang their backpacks and coats. Then in the kitchen I have an area with a dry erase board and calendar. I like it but would love to fancy mine up some.

  5. Hi. Great to see my command center featured here among some great names. Mine is the one you have as coming from 'Our Home Sweet Home' whilst I believe they did share my project in the blog, your link only goes to an image. For how to diy your own my original post can be found here http://www.getonwithitalready.me/entry-command-centre-launch-pad/ sorry I couldn't find an email to contact you privately. Now I'm off to look around your blog and see what you came up with or your command center, hope you got it all organised :)
