Linda Joan Erlam had a long career as an interior decorator and professional drapery and slipcover maker. When she left the profession and downsized, she had to deal with clutter. Everywhere. She tried to declutter with the “into the trash bag it goes” system and failed. Several attempts later, she found her system and now writes about decluttering, how to jump-start motivation, and how to live an easier, happier, less stress-filled life.
