Welcome to the Organized Optimist – a blog where I share my favorite tips and tricks for organizing this sometimes messy thing we call life.

I’m Jess, a 20-something Chicagoan who always believes in seeing the silver lining. I love coming up with ways to organize and simplify everyday life, while enjoying all of the sweet, harmonious moments it has to offer. Keep reading to learn a little bit more about the girl behind the blog.
