September 2013
Simple. Organized. Life-Changing.
Forte Organizers helps individuals and families stay organized at home, as well as teaching business people organization skills at work.
In the News...
Even though Lori took a few summer months off from writing this newsletter, she has been busy continuing her column for the Dayton Daily News. If you’re having difficulty starting your next organizing project, perhaps one of these articles will give you a jump start towards an organized life. 
Delegate When You Can...
Parents of school-age children know how quickly paperwork from school can pile up on the kitchen counter. Have your child help you keep up with the paperwork by filling out their own permission slips with the information they know. All you have to do as a parent is review it and sign it. This will save you time and help make your children more responsible for those items that pertain to them.
File, Don't Pile...
If you have to get up from your desk chair to file, you are more likely to pile it on your desk, thinking you’ll take the time to file it later. But later is usually just as busy as the present so these documents stay piled on your desk. Make filing your documents easy by bringing your filing drawers closer to your desk where you process your paperwork. This will keep your desk clutter-free and make finding paperwork easier.

Community Events...
Free Shred day. Residents of Warren County can securely discard their sensitive documents on Saturday, Sept. 28 from 10am-1pm at the Warren County Administration Building located at 406 Justice Dr. For details call Jen Haney at 513-695-1868.
If your community is hosting an event that would help our readers get more organized, please email with all the details.
