In The News...
Lori helps you organize on-the-go and at home in her most recent Dayton Daily News Articles: 
Organized for the New Year...

If your office tends to slow down during the holiday season, take advantage of this down time to get organized. Write down the goals you have for the coming year and keep only those items that will help you achieve those goals.
You’ll be ready to attack the coming year with confidence in an office that increases your productivity.
Don't do it all...
This holiday season get better at delegating, so you can enjoy time spent with friends and family. Trust that family members can take on tasks you normally do.
Teenage drivers can grocery shop. Create a list of the items you need and explain specifics they may need to know to navigate the grocery aisles.
Young children can help set the table. Create one place setting and let them follow your example. They also love to design place cards for all the guests.
Spouses can help at crunch time when the food is ready for the buffet. Earlier in the day, show them which dishes go into each serving dish and where it goes on the buffet.
Have guests prepare some of the dishes, so you’re not left doing all the work. Provide recipes for those cooks who may not be as experienced as you.
Giving everyone a task beforehand alleviates some of your stress and teaches others skills they will need someday. It gives everyone a chance to participate and appreciate what is involved when entertaining.
Remember, even if they don’t do things exactly the way you would have, things will work out fine and you will get to be a guest at your own table.
Organizing Classes...
There are no public classes being held this month. We have many sessions scheduled in the New Year. Watch for dates and times in our newsletters, on Facebook and our website.
Bring a friend or family member and you have an instant accountability partner. Someone who will help you attain your organizing goals and someone you can help motivate to reach theirs.

One Last Thing...
“Other things may change us, but we start and end with family.” ~Anthony Brandt
Worry less about making everything perfect this holiday season, let others help and be present in the moment when you are with your loved ones.
Blessings to all of you,
