About Linda

Hi! My name is Linda Groat. I married my wonderful husband in 1990, after completing my Master of Arts Degree at Alfred University, in School Psychology. I worked as a WNY School Psychologist from 1990 -2006, then, I opened Simply Back to Basics Organizing. I am the proud mom of five children, two sons and three daughters, the youngest three adopted from China.

After working for 8 years as an organizer,  in 2015 we adopted our last child, and I retired to be a full-time mom and homeschool my daughters. I left my blog open as a resource to the community. Thank you for visiting.
