It’s hard for families to stay connected during the week. Everyone is running off in different directions. It’s nice to have a home base area in your house to organize everything and to share important bits of information. Start your own message board with this cute and simple idea.

Find a full-length mirror and mount it sideways in the entryway of the house, keeping it in plain sight for everyone who’s entering or leaving. Buy a cute basket and some dry erase markers to keep near the mirror. Write messages to each other with the dry erase markers as a way to remember last minute items or notes for the day and the week ahead.

Don’t stop there. You can hang a calendar under the frame so everyone can see the date. Or, add a cork board to hang important papers. Keeping everyone organized day to day will make life for all the family a lot easier, and more fun.
