4. Memo Board and List Space
Command centers need to capture the inner workings of your day to day activities, and that includes to do lists, reminders and shopping lists. Make sure you have space to keep paper or another writing surface like a chalk or white board. You can also use plain frames with cute scrapbook paper with dry erase markers to spice up your look. Just make sure you have ample space to write.

The beauty of your own command center is you can design it to fit your needs and make it look cute too. We all know we like pretty things, and are more inclined to use something if it looks nice and organized. Plan out the layout, color theme and decor when planning your center. You can find inexpensive design elements like frames and initials at craft stores, and can repurpose many of the organizational tools you already have.

6. Mail Drop Off Zones
Ahh, mail. The main contributor to kitchen clutter everywhere. If you’re not buried under junk mail, you’re covering your counter with bills and reminder notices. Make sure your command center has ample place to hold all your incoming and outgoing mail, with the end goal of being handled quickly. Don’t just incorporate a letter tray so your stacks go unopened and piling up. Make sure your mail is handled properly and put away.
