In The News...
No Foolin'!  In Lori's Dayton Daily News articles, you can learn how to cut clutter and develop an organized filing system: 
Mirror, Mirror...

Got a great idea that needs a little brainstorming time? Write the idea on your bathroom mirror with a dry erase marker. Every morning and evening take a minute to think through the idea. Use the marker to write any new thoughts that come to mind each day.
When you’ve exhausted all additional thoughts on the subject, look in the mirror with your head held high and put your new plan into action.
Next time, use the marker on the mirror to leave words of endearment for your loved one. Would someone please relay this tip to my husband? I’ll leave the marker out.
Nobody Got Time For That...
Every second counts when you’re getting ready to leave in the morning. Throw away the caps on the products you use to get dolled up each morning. You won’t find any caps on my hairspray or the shaving cream in my shower.
This gives me the extra time I need to figure out just how much time I save each year by leaving caps off. Okay, I’m kidding here. It’s April Fool’s Day!
Of course, don’t throw the caps away if you take these products on the go.

I couldn’t do this newsletter (seriously, I don’t know how to send it out) without the Amazing Amy in my office. Amy, I appreciate you.
