Help! Command center revamp?

Last year for back to school, I converted an empty wall into a command center with some sheet metal and some magnetic supplies. We use it to post our menus (still planning them like this . . . most of the time), hold the kids' chore schedules and . . . fill up with clutter.

Here's what it looked like a year ago

(There's now more art up there.)

This is pretty similar, but a bit messier. Notice the photo clip holding a wedding announcement? We use this for checks to cash and receipts to reimburse these days.

Below the metal file are two photo clips for my older kids that hold their chore schedules.

This has never been a cutesy command center, but I've always felt like we could do more with it. So help me out:

How can we get more out of our command center??

My question: what are you missing? What do you feel like you could do more efficiently?

I don't know :/ . Everything!

I'd originally intended for the file to hold mail and the kids' files, but they're too heavy. I might use it for stuff Hayden brings home, and we sometimes put coupons there. So I guess I'd like better mail organization. I feel like there's some more this can do, but I don't know what.

I don't know how to improve it. I do think it's pretty neat the way it is! I'm looking forward to seeing what you do though.

This looks like it is working for your family.
I remember when you first shared this.
