7. Meal Planning Tools
One of the main headaches for moms and keeping our lives sane is meal planning. It can be stressful to keep everyone’s schedules aligned and also find time to cook or plan for dinner. Use your command center to help you stay organized by creating space for your weekly menus, favorite recipes and shopping lists. You don’t need a separate calendar and can simply use a file folder. So long as there is space for your tools, you will be much better off.

You can be the most organized person in the world, but if you don’t have labels than no one else is going to understand your amazing command center. Clearly mark your files, bins and trays. Use different colored pens, washi tape or labels so your family knows where to find things, but more importantly where to PUT them!

9. Cork Board or Open Space
Whether you want to incorporate your kids artwork and just need a place to hang wedding and birthday party invitations, your command center could use a cork board or other type of open space. You don’t need to have one as large as the photo above, but having a place to hang pertinent and temporary items that need to be visible so they won’t be forgotten is great addition to your command center.
