Command Center

I finally set up a command center to help keep up with all those papers that my kiddos come home with!
The school work and art is organized elsewhere. I'll be posting about that in the near future!
Here is how the command center looks from the hallway. (Excuse the dark photos. No natural light gets in this room no matter what I do!)
Each child has a spot in the hanging file holders.  The folders are marked 'action' for things that need my attention and 'information' for papers that are important to keep like handbooks and newsletters. That idea came from
 I Heart Organizing a few years back and works well for us.
There is also an embellished clothes pin on each basket to clip up notes, small papers, or money that needs to make it to the backpacks. Click over to read the tutorial!

We also added a backpack station. Read about it here.
