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...
Get back to the basics with Lori's organizing tips in her latest Dayton Daily News articles:
Make gift giving easy by purchasing plain gift bags and tissue in a variety of colors.  They can be mixed and matched for any occasion.  You can even have the kids decorate them for special holidays.
Productive Meetings Ahead...
Want to be more prepared in your business meetings?  Create a meeting folder for each meeting you attend regularly.  Throughout the week, put in the following examples to help you stay organized:
  • Agenda items to be discussed
  • Projects to delegate
  • Reports ready for presentation  
  •  Updates on current assignments.
  • Notes taken throughout the week on topics to be discussed
This tip will help you prepare for your meetings, in addition to relieving some of your stress if a meeting happens to be moved up unexpectedly.

Our public organizing classes will resume in September. Watch this newsletter, Forte’s Facebook reminders and our website ( for dates and times.

One More Thing...
It's hard to believe summer break is almost over!  Back-to-School is right around the corner, so why not create a Lunchbox Command Center in your kitchen to help keep your morning routine organized.  
It is simple to do.  Clear out a cabinet or drawer that will be only for your lunch making supplies.  Items to be included are lunchboxes, thermoses, sandwich baggies, plastic utensils, easy snacks and juice boxes. 
Attach the monthly school lunch calendar on the inside of the cabinet door for easy access.  
Enjoy the rest of your summer,
Lori Firsdon
