great use of space: she attached a large piece of sheet metal to a little used area in the kitchen (next to the fridge). Then, attached organizers for each person, some small buckets, a white board, magnets, etc. Command Central. (Or do chalkboard/magnet)
Budget friendly family command center and homework station: have snack ready keep homework supplies handy have clear expectations, activities for younger siblings develop a routine - I like this command center. Would be great in our entry way.
