December 2015
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...
 Lori's most recent Dayton Daily News Articles teach valuable organizing skills: 
What's Your Limit...
Start next year with a more organized office by setting limits on the amount of items you need. For example, how many pens do you need at your desk? Once you decide on a reasonable number, donate your excess pens.
In the future, don’t let pens pile up again. Stop picking up freebies others give you unless you really need them.
Next up... how many coffee mugs, books and decorations do you need? Setting limits on these will help you keep just the best of the best.
Cards Can Be Clutter...
According to an article in the Wall Street Journal, more than $41 billion (yes, that’s a ‘B’) in gift cards went unused between 2005 and 2011.
To keep the gifts you give to your family and friends during this holiday season from becoming just another thing they save but never use, ask them for gift suggestions and stick to the list.
Perhaps a clutter-free gift may be just what they need. Give the gift of time. Offer to do a task from their to-do list, deliver a home-cooked meal, babysit to give them a night off or treat them to a service such as house cleaning.
Organizing Classes...
There are no public classes being held this month. We have many sessions scheduled in the New Year. Watch for dates and times in upcoming newsletters, on Facebook and listed on our website.
Don’t go it alone. Bring a friend or family member, and you have an instant accountability partner. Someone who will help you attain your organizing goals and someone you can help motivate to reach theirs.

One More Thing...

“Acknowledging the good you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.”
 ~Eckhart Tolle
I am truly blessed to have worked with such wonderful clients this past year. Thank you for opening your homes, offices and oftentimes trusting me with your personal stories.  You inspire me to continue learning and working hard to help others who struggle with getting organized.
May you all enjoy this holiday season,
