    in Motivation

    Paper is one of the most pervasive types of clutter in the world today. Professional organizers are frequently called upon to help their clients dig through the piles of paper and establish systems that work. In this episode of Reclaiming Space Tracy chats with Professional Organizer Linda Diamond about the best ways to get out of paper overwhelm.

Her major responsibilities in the nonprofit world focused on strategizing problem solving solutions. In 2008, Linda decided that it was time to go back to work and so she started her own business, Captured Clutter...organizing therapy, LLC.


    Linda is a proud graduate of Northwestern University. She is a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) and will serve on the board as Marketing Director for her local Georgia NAPO chapter starting in July of 2015.
