the organised housewife in the media

Hi – I’m Katrina Springer (aka, Kat, The Organised Housewife).

As a mother of three children, all now young teens. I began blogging years ago as a way to share my tips and tricks to keeping a happy and organised home. With three kids (twins + 1) under two at one stage of my life, I simply had to get a handle on home organisation and very quickly – for mine and my husband’s sanity.

I’ll be the first to admit that I love a chart, a checklist or a planner to help bring even more calm and organisation into the home. I also know that every home and every family is unique and there’s not a one-size-fits-all approach to life. All my tips can easily be adapted to suit your individual circumstances.
