July 2018
Reduced stress. Increased productivity. Improved well-being.
Forte Organizers helps individuals and families stay organized at home, as well as teaching business people organization skills at work.
In The News...
Celebrate freedom from clutter with Lori's most recent Dayton Daily News columns:
Paper Purge...
Your office paperwork can become overwhelming and can get out of control fast!  You don’t really need to keep every piece of paper that crosses your desk indefinitely.  Mark your documents and files with the dates that they can be discarded or shredded, then follow through with the paper purge on a designated day every week. 
Just remember that some legal and financial documents must be kept for a certain length of time, so make sure know those requirements. 
Kid Chaos...
The kids are home more in the summer, which means their stuff is left around the house a lot more too! 
If you are having trouble keeping the house tidy, then pick up their stuff and place it on their chair where they eat dinner.  They have to take all of their things on the chair to their room before they can sit down to the meal.  
Tackling a little bit every single day won't be as overwhelming.   
Organizing Classes...
There aren't any public organizing classes scheduled during the summer.  Take this chance to enjoy some time with your family!  Lori will begin teaching her seminars again in September.

Welcome Samantha! 
Lose Your Stuff, Find Yourself...
Enjoy this excerpt from Lori's book:
"Ask yourself, "Why am I taking my time to maintain, stack and trip over items that I no longer use?  Why do I allow this excess stuff to take up space in my home and create additional work for me? 
Take a walk through your home.  Instead of letting all of the emotions you normally attach to your stuff come out, I want you to start seeing the excess items in your home as anchors.  These anchors weigh you down and take up the valuable time you have left."
