Meet the Team

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

The Organised Housewife now reaches over 2 million (fabulous!) people a month. It’s grown into a one-stop-shop for a daily dose of domestic advice that makes life simpler, tidier, and less chaotic… and having that all run seamlessly takes a lot of work!

There is now also an online store, Organised HQ that has a huge range of organising and cleaning products, with some on-trend home decor. We have things for all areas of the home, from the kitchen, laundry, bathrooms and more. Shop from the comfort of your home and have your goodies delivered to your door. Plus, there are printables, planners, checklists, notepads and more to help you stay organised around the home and help you to create routines.

Kat employs a team of nine, who help her to send out all the wonderful household goodies and deliver the tips and tricks which have made The Organised Housewife and Organised HQ household names.

Kat is the first to put her hand up and admit that we all need a little help sometimes, and she says that she really couldn’t do it all without them. But all that aside, she actually quite likes having such an awesome bunch of people in the office and warehouse to brainstorm and banter with.

 

Kat Springer

The Organising and Checklist Queen

I’m Kat, and The Organised Housewife is my fourth baby – my hubby and I  have three adorable teenagers plus 2 super cute furbabies! It’s probably no surprise that I love home cooked food, a tidy house, and a good checklist. It makes me happy and calm, but I certainly wasn’t born this way! After my kids were born I struggled with the chaos, and so I taught myself to be more organised. Slowly but surely I replace the chaos with calm, and I am now incredibly passionate about sharing these lessons with other mums.

My top tip: One of the biggest struggles I had when my babies were little was keeping on top of the laundry, I always had piles of washing everywhere.  I love to organise and my way to keep on top of Mt Washmore now is to organise the dirty laundry too!!   There’s no stopping me, I organised EVERYTHING.  


Clare Bratina

Head of quietly judging (aka, every graphic designer)

Hello! My name is Clare and I am addicted to the world of design. I have been working with Kat since April 2018, creating the stunning and cute printables and physical products you all purchase and have in your home. I’m not going to lie, it’s definitely a bit of an ego boost LOL! I have a handsome little man who has started school and I definitely don’t know how I survived parenting without Kat’s forever growing adulting 101 (aka. the blog)

Top tip I have learnt from Kat is: Balance, truly finding my balance between being a mum working on her career in design and being a mum that prioritises her family too! I have gone from being busy for the sake of being busy to… it’s okay to switch off and enjoy this moment! I no longer feel guilty on a Saturday night leaving an email till Monday!


Sarah McGowan

Social Media and Marketing Guru

Hello all! I’m Sarah and I’m the resident head of marketing and social media at Organised HQ. My 25 years of experience being a detail nut have prepared me perfectly for this role 😉 I’m a newly minted Australian with a passion for creating. Being around so many amazing organising strategies and tools daily has helped me cross more off my to-do list every day and actually feel excited about what’s next to do!

Top tip I have learnt from Kat: If you’re procrastinating something that takes less than 7 minutes, just do it now!


Kate Rigg Fletcher

The Wonder Woman of Words

Hi everyone, I’m Kate and I love unusual words, and everything thing to do with writing and reading! My role in the team is helping Kat with her PR and content marketing. Here at Organised HQ I’m known for my ‘word of the day’ as Kat calls some of the more archaic words I occasionally use. I’m also a mum of five! Three boys ranging from 19 to 13, and twin girls who are 10, and with everything I have to juggle, I tend to describe my life as organised chaos.

Top tip I have learnt from Kat is: Find ways to simplify and streamline things. Don’t make anything harder for yourself than it needs to be!


Chris White

Warehouse Manager Extraordinaire

Hey! I’m Chris, the Warehouse Manager at Organised HQ. Rarely found without a smile on my face I multitask like a boss and ensure the warehouse runs like a well-oiled machine. Usually you’ll find me up to my elbows in orders and stock, lucky I’m one tough cookie! Being the resident jack of all trades I’m always ready to lend a helping hand. As a massive dog lover, I’m also a proud fur father and could talk about dogs for days.

Top tip I have learnt from Kat: Focus on commitment, make the journey fun and don’t be afraid of using your imagination.
