When all the beach chairs have been stored away and the back to school rush initiates once again, the importance of staying both organized and on top of day to day activities becomes not only a huge priority but a daily challenge we can’t escape. Whether it’s remembering a doctor’s appointment or Spanish test or having to grocery shop for that huge dinner you’re hosting on Saturday night, between work and soccer games, appointments and last minute plans, staying coordinated and on time becomes a game of cat and mouse. The solution? Create a place in your home where organization reigns, a place where you can go that has all the answers!
Whether it is in your kitchen or out, your office, bedroom or hallway, the beauty of an organization hub is that there is one place that you and your family can go to keep track of plans, goals, lists, upcoming deadlines and more. Be creative! Add pops of color or pretty accents, calendars, message boards and fun details.
Make this space fit into your home but stand out just enough that you are always checking in! Make room for both the big stuff as well as the little stuff. And if you need a change of scenery, mix it up with a fresh design or have fun rearranging what’s already there.
