December 2017
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...
Lori offers some great advice in her Dayton Daily News articles on how to change your outlook when organizing.
Post-It Problems...
Take a moment to look at all of the Post-it notes you have on or around your computer screen.  
How many of those do you really need in your vision every single day?  You may be surprised that many of them have just become 'background noise' and you don't actually need them.
Investigate what functions your computer has for reminders, so you don't have to see the visual clutter around your screen all day long.  
Clean off your screen to get a clear new vision for your work day!
Video Art Show...
Do you have boxes of your kids' artwork and don't know what to do with them?  They take up valuable storage space and collect dust. 
Do a Video Art Show with your child.  Most of us have smartphones with video capability.  It is as simple as having your child hold up their artwork, while they tell you all about it.  Think of how much fun it will look back at the videos throughout years.  You will be creating special memories, while reducing clutter all at the same time.  
Since you now have a wonderful video art show, you have permission to throw the artwork away.  If something is really special, have it framed so you can enjoy it in your home every day. 
Organizing Classes...
There are no scheduled public classes for December due to the holidays. We have several sessions scheduled for the New Year. Watch for dates and times in upcoming newsletters, on Facebook and listed on our website.
Community Events...
Did you know Goodwill has Estate and Downsizing Services?  
Their estate and downsizing service will gladly accept large donations, free of charge, and will work with you to schedule a convenient pick-up date and time.
When you call them at 937-528-6392, they will conduct an assessment over the phone. Once they determine if they can do a pick-up, they will schedule a time and day that works for you.
For more information go to Goodwill's Estate Pickup Webpage.
Who knew downsizing could be so easy?

One More Thing...
"The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree:  the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other."  ~Burton Hill
