OT Life Hacks

During the month of July the AOTA and other associations have banded together to promote #OTLifeHacks on social media.  A life hack is any trick, shortcut, skill, or new method that helps to solve an everyday problem.  Abby over at OT Cafe at http://abbypediatricot.blogspot.com/2014/07/otlifehack.html encouraged some other therapy bloggers to join in the #OTLifeHack fun.
