About Deborah Branscum

In 2002, Deborah Branscum and her family moved from the San Francisco Bay Area to Stockholm, Sweden. The family shed most of its belongings just before the move, a painful process that sparked her interest in possessions, clutter and organization.

The writer, a third-generation pack rat, has been a contributing editor to Newsweek, a columnist for Fortune.com and has contributed to the New York Times, Fortune Small Business and a variety of other publications. She has also held editorial positions at several magazines, including Mother Jones, InfoWorld and Macworld, for which she wrote the award-winning “Conspicuous Consumer” column.
