Organize Your Command Center The Frugal Way

Command Centers can be located anywhere and include various elements.  As you can tell, my command center is on the side of my refrigerator.  I am excited to share some frugal ideas on how to create your own command center on day sixteen of How to Organize Your Home the Frugal Way!  Command centers are a wonderful way to help manage your home and family all in one spot.

Life around my home can quickly become just a little chaotic, with six children one of which is autistic.  Taking a little effort to group calendar, mail, meal plan, inspiration and chores all together in one central area has helped me manage my home better and more efficiently.   This whole project should cost very little.  When I made my command center I only needed to purchase magnetic hooks which I purchased at Walmart for $1.97 for two.  Remember to use what you have on hand.


 Recycle, Reuse and Repurpose…you know the drill.



Ideas for what to include in your command center

family calendar

meal planning menu


chore chart

family mission statement



mail basket

in and out boxes

charging station

school papers basket

key holder

grocery list




But all things should be done

decently and in order.

1 Corinthians 14:40



I created this printable for daily chores several years ago to help me stay on task, something at which I struggle immensely!  I needed some visual reminder that I could post and would look great too.  I spray painted this old picture frame and that was it…I love EASY!

You can get the FREE printable here and read about Homemaking Little House on the Prairie style all at the same time!
