Happy New Year! Please join us Tuesday, January 15th, 6:30 PM – 9:00 PM, at Z Grille and Tap, 2321 Cross Timbers Road, Flower Mound 75028
We can’t WAIT for our January meeting with speaker Amy Jones, who will discuss Organizing Tools and Strategies, along with how to personalize spaces, places and things according to learning styles and love languages.
“Organization isn’t about perfection; it’s about efficiency, reducing stress and clutter, saving time and money and improving your overall quality of life.” ― Christina Scalise
According to Amy, when we think about being organized, we rarely consider what not being organized costs us. We spend time, money, energy and effort looking for, thinking about and stressing over lost items, non-useful things and what we have too much of.
How does this translate?
- A survey of 1,000 U.S. adults reveals that one in five loses or misplaces personal belongings every week.
- Americans spend an average of $5,591 over a lifetime replacing lost items.
- 80% of home clutter is a result of disorganization, not lack of space.
Being unorganized can affect our ability to focus, decision making and sleep patterns as well as stress and energy levels. Learn simple tips, tricks and time savers that will help you be more comfortable, free up time, energy and effort and create a more balanced life.
“A year from now you may wish you had started today.” ― Karen Lamb

Our featured charity for January is Ranch Hand Rescue. Located in Argyle TX, Ranch Hands Rescue started as a sanctuary for neglected and severely abused farm animals. Today, they’re not just saving animals – they’re saving people, too. RHR is the first organization to partner neglected and abused farm animals with clients in deep psychotherapy counseling sessions. Their Equine/Animal Assisted Counseling (EAAC) sessions are guided by a Licensed Professional Counselor to ease the pain of extreme trauma in those who are not responding to traditional therapy programs/methods.
RHR uses unconventional methods in a standardized world to save lives. Each person in this world is unique, and often times, traditional therapy programs are ineffective in treating deep-seated, complex trauma. This is why our mission is so important; We specialize in treating the 1-8% of the population who are not responding to traditional counseling methods. We help adults and children who’ve experienced sexual assault/abuse as well as veterans with PTSD restore the light in their lives. Ranch Hands Rescue is a place for people to get help when they’ve run out of places to go.
Their activities are solely supported by the generosity of volunteers, fundraising activities, and grants.
We will have a donation jar at the January meeting, or you may donate to RHR directly via their website here.
Thank you for your continued support of WOFM’s featured monthly charities!
