Organize It! Link Party

My favorite blog, along with other organizing blogs, is hosting a month long organizing link party! I was so excited to see this because I’ve wanted to share my favorite organized space in my home!

Introducing my “Command Station”!

When we built our home, we decided to choose the floorplan we wanted and keep the upgrades to a minimum in order to control the cost. One of the few upgrades I was adamant about getting was the desk space in the kitchen since we wouldn’t be choosing a floorplan with a den or office.

This space has been a life saver. In the upper cabinets we keep all of our cookbooks and Scentsy supplies. On the shelf below I have two rectangular baskets from Thirty One. In these we keep chargers, my labeler, and planner supplies. We also keep our change jar here too.

In the slots below the large shelf from left to right I keep my couponing and shopping supplies, mailing supplies, magazines, bills that are paid, and finally bills that need paid. On the desk itself we keep our home management binder, budgeting binder with printables from A Bowl Full of Lemons, my husband’s home brewing binder, writing utensils, our tearaway calendar, my toddler’s arts and craft supplies, and the printer. The drawers contain our office supplies and the large drawer holds hanging file folders with important documents.

Next to the desk we have a hanging organizer from Thirty One. It holds a calendar, our weekly cleaning checklist, event tickets and gift cards, a dry erase space, and a pocket for each family member to keep items we may need.

I’m very proud of this space and how it has helped us to remain organized and in control of our clutter.

Head over and check out all the linked up projects!

  1. I love this look! I need to get something to organize my desk area and these are some great ideas. I have the Thirty One hanging organizer and have used a blank Real Simple Calendar (that they don’t make any more). What calendar do you use? Thanks for the inspiration!
