Episode 21– What is a Command Centre?

Command Centre Feature


Command centre organising! In this podcast Lesley and Ingrid talk about what a command centre is and how it can help you live a more organised life.

A command centre is a very grand word for the central area where, whoever is involved in managing the daily and weekly routines, keeps all the important stuff together. This is very often in the kitchen, but we’ll discuss different options of where this command centre can be and what kind of things you would find there.

In this episode we discuss:

  • 1
    Who is going to get most use out of a command centre.
  • 2
    What does a command centre look like: pin board, whiteboard with magnets, hooks, basket.
  • 3
    What kind of stuff will you find in a command centre:  * weekly menus and meal plans,  * shopping list, * family calendar and kids activities, list with names of classmates, school holiday, dates for recycling, useful phone numbers, appointment cards and a pen, * letters from school, * inspirational quotes or pictures and * kids artwork 
  • 4
    Location of a command centre or launching station can be in the kitchen or next to the front door where shoes and coats that are used daily live. You need a place for swimming kits, shin pads, books to return to the library, your bags for live, etc.
