December 2016
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...
Whether you are packing up for travel or an empty nester packing up left behind clutter, Lori's most recent Dayton Daily News Articles teach us how to manage both:
If you want to run an efficient, productive meeting, invite as few people as possible. If your company has regularly scheduled staff meetings, only those who will be discussing the agenda items should participate.
When extra people are in the meeting, off-topic discussions are more likely, which makes the meeting run longer and less efficiently.
In addition, excuse any members once their agenda item(s) have been discussed. They will no longer be adding value and may cause distractions.
Reunited And It Feels So Good...
If you’re getting together with family and friends this holiday season and you’re preparing potluck dishes to take along, grab your phone and take a picture of all the dishes and serving utensils you’re bringing with you. Once the meal is over and cleanup is underway, you can review the photo to make sure all those items find their way back home.
Organizing Classes...
There are no scheduled public classes for December due to the holidays. We have many sessions scheduled for the New Year. Watch for dates and times in upcoming newsletters, on Facebook and listed on our website.

DP&L Free Applicance Pickup and Recycling
Save up to $150 on your energy bill every year by letting DP&L pick up and recycle your old (working) refrigerator or freezer. Plus, they'll pay you $50 per appliance. New this year - get an additional $20 if you have an older, inefficient room air conditioner or dehumidifier they can pick up at the same time. 
They do the heavy lifting, and nearly 100% of the components will be reused or recycled.
It's easy! Just call 877-889-4765 to schedule your free pickup or go to their website at this link:

One More Thing...
“The holiday season is a perfect time to reflect on our blessings and seek out ways to make life better for those around us.” ~Terri Marshall
I am truly blessed to get to use the gifts I’ve been given to help others who want to better their lives. May all of you find your passion and purpose to help those around you.
Happy Holidays!
