Simple. Organized. Life-Changing.
Forte Organizers helps individuals and families stay organized at home, as well as teaching business people organization skills at work.
In The News...
 In Lori's Dayton Daily News articles, learn how to treasure your memories without holding onto items that might be causing you stress.
Dust Disappears...
When you organize books in your bookcase, move all the books to the front edge of each shelf so they are in line with one another. This not only gives books a neat uniform appearance, it also prevents you from stacking other items on the shelves in front of the books.  No more cluttered bookcases.  A bonus – dust is hidden behind the books so you can clean less and relax more. 

Get 'Er Done...
Lee Iacocca was quoted as saying, “The discipline of writing something down is the first step towards making it happen.”
Stop and write down three things you hope to accomplish today. Now write down three things that will prevent you from getting those done; for example, surfing the net, phoning a friend and watching TV.  These are all things that keep people from getting to their to-do list tasks. Don’t reward yourself with these distracting activities until you accomplish the three tasks you chose for today.

Clean out those closets and help a great cause!
A Springboro High School Senior is collecting old shoes for his Eagle Scout project.  He will clean them up and donate them to "Shoes for H.O.P.E.," an organization that gives them to third world countries.  His goal is 600 pairs of shoes!
There are two collection sites in Springboro.  There is a collection bin in the lobby of the Coffman Family YMCA and one at Five Points Elementary School for the families of students who attend that school.
Donations accepted through May 29th.
We would like to take this chance to welcome Suzanne Finke to the Forte Organizers team!  She will be working on marketing our business to corporate clients.  If you are interested in booking a corporate seminar for your business, contact Suzanne at
For Mom...
“The quickest way for a mother to get her children’s attention is to sit down and look comfortable.”
Happy Mother’s Day! Take a minute to relax and enjoy your special day.
