Hello, everyone. My name is Jamie, the most recent addition to the One Organized Mama team!   Some of you may have met me since my start in October.  It’s been a fulfilling journey connecting with so many different individuals helping to jumpstart progress in their everyday lives and homes.

Although I do have a strong appreciation for aesthetics, I truly believe that organization is not just about making things look “pretty” but about increasing efficiency, functionality and most of all practicality.

I am so excited to be a OOM blog contributor where I’ll be sharing organization techniques, inspiration and my personal favorite: LIFE HACKS!

What are “Life Hacks” you ask?  They are usually simple and clever tips or techniques for accomplishing familiar (and sometimes frustrating) tasks more easily and efficiently, often times improvising or repurposing what you already have around the house.  Think, creative problem solving.

“Life hacks,” as they are known, are all about eliminating life’s manifold frustrations in simple and deliciously clever ways. The best involve tricks that are free, efficient and stunningly obvious in retrospect, deploying household items (like the humble toilet roll) for purposes beyond their wildest aspirations. — Michael Koziol
