What is it about flat surfaces that refuse to stay organized? It’s like I simply cannot resist placing my car keys, junk mail, pocket change and all other kinds of stuff on any desk, dining room table or dresser within reach. The dust bunnies love me, but it certainly makes life messier. That’s why I need a command center.

Even if you can resist the call of clutter (teach me your secrets!), you must admit to the superior organizational powers of command centers. They not only provide a big picture view of your weekly to monthly schedule, but also make for functional and fabulous wall décor. So here are some easy DIY tips for staying organized without sacrificing style.

Custom Corkboard Whiteboard and Chalkboard

The centerpieces of any command center are your boards. Chalkboards, whiteboards, and corkboards create a power trio that helps you keep order through the chaos of life. And boards can be beautiful! You don’t have to relegate your command center to your office or mud room. Bright, bold frames can make for a fun look for your kitchen, and classic plein air frames give you an upscaled command center look that will fit right in with your living space décor. The versatility of boards knows no bounds, and with some simple DIY creativity, you can put your personal stamp on them.

Custom Framed Chalkboard in white frame

When you hear chalkboards it might conjure up memories of scratching out math problems in grade school. But chalkboards are not just for classrooms! They make for great planning tools and are even better with some accessorizing. One way to plan your days is to use some decorative washi tape to block out days of the week. Measure out sections of your board, cut the tape to fit and Ta-da! Instant freedom to plan out your schedule.

But wait. If you have a chalkboard, why do you also need a whiteboard? It’s all about the creative brain storming. A blank, white space is absolutely magical for getting your creativity going. Life is hectic and always throwing you curve balls. So, having a place to spitball ideas, write up last minute lists, or even just doodle for a mental break is essential. Whiteboards also look great with colorful frames. Try adding a vibrant picture frame around yours for a luminous pop of colorful coordination!

Custom Corkboard

Every command center needs a good hangout spot. Corkboards allow you to keep the clutter off your desk or table and pin up the important stuff. That reminder from your kid’s school, a wedding save-the-date, a lovely postcard from a friend – pin them to keep them in eye’s view throughout the week. Use colorful pushpins to add a little more happy or attach strips of ribbon or twine across the board to use clothespins for hanging.

Office with Custom Framed Organization Boards

Now that you’ve got your boards set up, how do you fill out the rest of your command center area? We highly recommend some hanging file folders and other shelving to help you avoid creating a mountain of clutter. But why not personalize the space with family pictures, motivational typography, or your favorite art? You can coordinate a clean, modern look with matching frames, or go for a gallery-wall style eclectic look by choosing a variety of frame styles. Get creative, add some character to your space, and most importantly – stay organized!

Very comfortable and dry super fast!

The fit is very large.. I ordered the small size, which is smallest available size, it was still too big for me at 5'9" 150 lbs. Definitely get a smaller size than your normal size.
The pants are to small, I am fat, this is true, but the product description and size chart are inaccurate
Lots of compliments on this hat! I have a somewhat big head and flat bills hats can sometimes look a little too snug on me, but this hat did not have that problem! Its comfortable, lightweight and breathes really well. Love the color way a lot! Overall a great looking hat that i'd recommend to anyone!
I love em!
I love the wallet! Its roomy and has many storage areas
Quality construction. Five card slots and three pockets but still incredibly slim. Exactly what I was looking for.
This a definitely a heavyweight material. Great value for the money. This makes the shirt surprisingly comfortable, cozy and warm.
I was so worried about ordering this online without seeing the color and quality in person, but went ahead and ordered. I am so glad I did! This purse is that perfect "not too small, not to big" size that is great for everyday use. I am able to comfortable fit my large Fossil wallet, phone, keys, and a few other small items inside without it being too crowded. There are two pockets inside, one that zips and one that doesn't. The zippers on the front are not just decorative, but can be opened and used as a pouch, which is also a nice little bonus!
Great. Fits perfectly. Holds all my cards
People arent kidding these socks shed a lot of lint. A month after wearing these I pulled a big sock turd out of my shower drain.
Aside from the missing item when the first package arrived, the glasse were perfect
4 stars instead of 5... the bag falls over because of the front zip pocket not being flush with the bottoms of the other pockets. I can work around this, but it is a bit annoying.
I love these undershirts
Love the shirt, just ordered 4 more long sleeves and will buy 10 for summer wear. Beats all other brands for wear and looks. I am an apple farmer and this fits the bill. I have bought many shirts now i just buy these.
As I have lost weight and run out of belt holes, it was decided that I would go with these at work. Comfortable, easy to attach as they connect to the loops not the belt. The swivels are what has sold me. If I have the straps in the wrong position, just pull away from the shoulder and rotate the strap to remove the curl, the swivel will straighten the lay down.
First time buyer. The glasses feel very sturdy. Unique to say the least. Very comfortable.
Nice soft shirts
Appears to be good quality and has all the pockets I needed in a wallet.
Met all expectations for quality, fit and style.
This is my second pair of the "Dirty Mo" Spy sunglasses! Worth every penny! I went with more of a darkened color 'matte' finish so I can wear them in uniform (not in formation). They have a basic/limited "bling" factor which is good because I do not wish to have a 'loud' pair of sunglasses on my face.
So warm, feels like I'm lying on a cloud.
Para regalar
Saddened. I would love to give this sweatshirt 5 stars, because i love the style! But sadly compared to the others that carhartt have made, this one is so different. Maybe we got an unlucky one from batch- but this hoodie is so much more narrow and Short. Saddness really because is very stylish hoodie!
After numerous purchases of men's full rise briefs from Hanes X-Temp, Hanes regular brand and Calvin Klein I finally found my perfect match to Dockers with Amazon Essentials. I don't know what is worse,shopping for a car or buying the right underwear. One thing though you have to buy a size bigger to make sure they fit as well as the Dockers. I did end up sending the Hanes X-Temps back to Hanes and got my money back. I also did a couple washings to see how they would hold up and then ended up ordering another pack.
Love! Love! Love! Get so many compliments!
These socks fit as expected for a male with size 11-12 shoes. They are a little tight in the ankle area. However, they aren't too tight to wear and that seems to happen often. The socks are nothing special. They are comfortable enough to wear though. They have a 78% Cotton, 18% Polyester, 4% Spandex blend which I personally find a little more comfortable than all cotton socks. This also makes them moisture wicking which is an added bonus.

The socks stay on and in place when they are worn. They are good for an everyday sock alternative. They have been worn and washed several times without stretching out or having issues. Overall, they are basic...but decent socks that will help to keep your feet dry.
Sturdy frames and cleanable lenses.
I bought this to replace a similar wallet. For personal items and unknown brands, I am always a little worried as to what I might get when I purchase online. The wallet I received is well made, with good quality leather, and everything was an easy fit. I am definitely pleased.
