Here at Organized Home, we love the concept of the family launch pad: a dedicated space for each family member to hold and organize everything needed to leave the house for work, school or errands.
Blogger The Abundant Life has a new and pretty take on the concept: family mailboxes. Simple wall-mounted containers for each family member are given a decor-worthy twist with personalized photos--and are a great way to keep paperwork and reminders organized and ready for use.
We like the teamwork-friendly aspects; cleaning chore lists and phone messages find a home, while coloring pages and occasional treats make checking the mailbox fun!
The inside of cabinet doors is an often-overlooked location to keep important information close at hand but out of sight. Post calendars, often-used recipes, or emergency information there for quick access. Use non-damaging mounting options, like 3M's Command™ hanging strips, to tap the space without marring the finish.
