Back in Command

This week I am revisiting my “command center“.  The “command center” is the latest word for that place in our homes from which we keep track of and manage what is important – schedules, homework, budgets, bills, etc.  This is what I came up originally:

After living with mine for well over a year, I have a few issues I need to deal with. First, in our move from one house to another, the spaces just didn’t transfer well. What was in reach and functioning well in our previous house is not compatible with our go-to space in this house.  Second, there are some things I simply don’t like about the way I set up my home-management system. For example, I don’t like having everything in a home-management binder, especially bills. It may sound terribly lazy, but when I get a bill in the mail I want someplace to just quickly toss it until bill-paying day rather then getting out my binder, finding the right tab for bills, then filing it. Some aspects I will keep, but this week I will be fine-tuning and changing things up a bit.

  1. Love the blue and red together! Where did you get those red bins? We are redoing our basement and I am using red as an accent color.
    I know what you mean about the bills. I have budgets in my organizational binder but not bills. I am almost 100% paperless at this point. What do you think are the pros and cons bills vs paperless? Glad you are back blogging!

    • I found the red bins at Target a while back. I’m not sure if they are still there or not. Paperless billing might be a good idea, but I’m kind of nervous about going to it all together. I’m afraid I might miss something because I’m not quite organized in the tech world. Maybe that should be an upcoming project. 🙂 How do you keep all you paperless life in order?

  2. Hi Jaynell – – looks great, is this in the little hallway? Can’t quite see where . . . if it is . . . what’s covering the thermostat that you and Paul cleverly ‘hid’? Hi and hugs to all!!!
