Functional and organized Backpack and Command Center Organization Ideas that are all great solutions to help you stay organized and keep your family clutter from taking over your house! Come get ideas for your home!
School is officially back in session and nothing makes me crazier than a chaotic and unorganized place for kid backpacks, school work and our family calendar! I searched all over Pinterest to find my favorite organization ideas to help in these areas. While I was searching for a perfect command center I realized that there is no perfect one! Each works depending on the type of space and the family’s needs. Try not get caught up in the super elaborate ideas if you are going for a smaller and more budget friendly approach. Whatever works for you is what works for you!
Backpack Organization Ideas
I get tired of seeing backpacks all over the floor, so to me a designated spot for backpacks is a MUST in our house!
When we first moved into our house I wanted to create a simple backpack and jacket area! We have no closet space on our main floor so space was limited, but this has worked well for us over the years.
