Nicole Galiger, owner of Organista Professional Organizing, partnered with Real Housewives of Raleigh Durham for a little back-to-school organizing help. I enlisted her for these tips after attempting to do a little organizing myself. I don't have any kids in school yet but we're going to be doing some at home preschool lessons this year before our little one goes off to school next fall. So I knew I'd need to get a system in place to keep us in line. And I figured with most of you all sending kids back to school this week and last, you could probably use the tips too. I mean we could all use a little help in the organization department, right?
Nicole often has clients that need help with offices and closets. As an organizer, she strives to make sure the system she designs and implements suits her client's needs and is easy to maintain. All too often, Nicole assists those that have fallen out of the habit of organization because a routine has not been set into place. That's where a command center comes into play. Many examples of command centers can be found on Pinterest if inspiration is needed. For those of you that have never heard the term, a command center is simply an organized drop zone. Some include a desk for doing homework or bills, they can be located in a foyer, mudroom, kitchen, or even a home office. Wherever you'd like to assemble your command center, Nicole has a few tips to go along with it for your back-to-school organization needs.
