In The News...
It's scary how helpful Lori's new article in the Dayton Daily News is:  
The Shredder...
Do you have a box labeled "SHRED" in your office for everyone to see?  Often times, papers in your shred box have confidential information contained in them.  Having a box labeled SHRED is an invitation for any unscrupulous passerby to snatch that information out of the box.  Keep your shred box out of sight and unlabeled for everyone's protection.  It would be scary if someone made off your important papers.
The same goes for having a SHRED box at home in your garage.  If you ever leave your garage door open, anyone could sneak in and make off with your confidential information.  If you really want to keep it safe, label the box "Grandma's Needlepoint Projects" instead.  
Spooktacular Storage...
Are your Halloween decorations a cluttered mess and scattered throughout your storage spaces?  It's time to slay those disorganization monsters!  
When you put your decorations away this year, store everything together in plastic tubs.  This will keep them safe from bugs, dust bunnies and anything else that might go bump in the night.  
Clearly label each bin "Halloween."  If you don't have a labeler, make a sign like the one pictured below and place it in a plastic sheet protector.  Securely tape it to the front of the bin.  
Create a list of the contents of each bin, put it in a sheet protector, and place it on top of the decorations before you close it.  When you pull out your decorations next year, you will be able to see what is in each bin with a single glance. 
What's even scarier is that Christmas is right around the corner!  You can do the same thing with your Holiday decorations when the time comes.

Lose Your Stuff, Find Yourself...
Free yourself from fear with this quote from Lori's book, "Lose Your Stuff, Find Yourself."
