In The News...
Here are some practical organizing tips from Lori's most recent Dayton Daily News articles
Fat Folder Solution...
Look closely at the front of your manila file folders. You should see some indented lines towards the bottom of the file. These lines are there for you to use when your file starts getting filled with lots of paperwork, and the papers creep up over the file’s name making it difficult to read.
By creasing one of the lines you expand the file allowing for more room in the folder, while the back of the folder stays in the same position as the others in your drawer.
Buried Treasures...
I work with clients who have saved boxes of greeting cards throughout the years. When they begin to think about how they want to spend their time in years to come, they often come to the conclusion they are not going to read through them ever again.
If you decide to part with your cards, it might be wise to give one last check to see if they contain any cash or gift cards before discarding them. I have often uncovered these treasures years later when helping clients recycle their cards.

One More Thing...
For those of you who work in an office, April 27 is Administrative Professionals’ Day. Take time to thank the people who support you throughout the year.
I would never have grown this business without the "Amazing Amy" in my office. Amy, I’m grateful for everything you do for me and the clients we serve.
