It’s still unbelievable to me to think that Little C starts grade 2 this month. What?! She was just a teeny tiny bum-scooting baby a few years ago. As I wrap my head around this, I’m also a little terrified because I’m not the most organized person in the world. At all. I need all the help I can get when it comes to cleaning and organizing my life and my kids’ activities. With this in mind, I made it a priority last week to tidy up our kitchen command center for back to school and make some new chore charts for my girls to help us get back into a routine.

Kitchen Command Center Idea for Back to School

You might remember our kitchen command center from a couple of years ago.

It’s still almost the same, but I’ve rearranged a couple of things.

Kitchen Command Center Idea for Back to School

First of all, I got rid of the paper calendar that I had beside the middle clipboard. It was really useless in our home. My hubby and I have a Google calendar on our phones that we share, and that works best for us. My phone gives me notifications, and I REALLY need those to remember all of our appointments and events.

To replace that, I put a piece of chalkboard vinyl I received from Expressions Vinyl to jot down random notes.
