In The News...
Fright this way to Lori's Spook-tacular Organizing Tips in her Dayton Daily News articles:
Who's Calling?...
Keep a notebook or call log by your phone at work.  That way you can jot down notes and keep a record of all of your telephone calls in one place.  
How many of us have lost important information on those tiny scraps of paper we write our notes and messages on?  Think of how great it would be to have all of it in one place.
Throw In The Towel...
When you reitre your old bath towels to the rag bag, cut the corner so you know they don't belong with your good towels.  This way you don't mistakenly dry off with the same towels you use for household chores.
