Win a day with The Organised Housewife – Thanks to Kia

This post is sponsored by Kia

Please note this giveaway is now closed, the winners are C Buchtmann from NSW, L Gaeta from QLD and L Mineo from Victoria congratulations ladies I am really looking forward to visiting your homes!

Recently I mentioned I would love to give myself away for a day, to help those struggling to organise a space in their home.  I am beyond thrilled that Kia would like to sponsor this dream of mine.  They are giving me the opportunity to fly and drive to the homes of three readers.  I will visit their homes, access the area, together we will go shopping (this will be fun), then return home to clean, declutter, sort and organise their space.  I’m super excited to meet three readers!!

All you need to do is enter your details into the form below, share with me which area you need help with and why, plus upload some photo’s of your space.  Not only will we go shopping for some products to help organise the area we will also create a plan together to help you manage it and keep it under control.  Our day together will be filmed and a reveal of each makeover will be published in a video and in a blog post.

Over the next few weeks I will be driving around in one of Kia’s new Soul cars.  I’ve really enjoyed driving this car, it’s a lot smaller than my current car which makes it so much easier to park!  I will be driving to the homes of all our winners in this little beauty.

I am truly happy that I get this opportunity to be able to help three readers as I can understand how overwhelming cluttered and untidy spaces can get. If you are struggling to know how to sort through it, where to start or the best possible solution, together we can ‘think outside the box’ and make a positive difference in your home.


The Kia Soul is stylish and sporty, with all the latest features, my favourites are bluetooth so I can listen to the music on my phone and answer calls safely while driving.  It has a very sporty feel to the dashboard, with a nice leather trim on the steering wheel.  I really enjoy listening to music when I drive, the sound system in the car is fantastic.  My kids usually grab my phone as soon as we get in the car and they spend our trips picking super cool music to listen and bop around too, Happy by Pharrell is our favourite song at the moment and Katy Perry is always a must!


I was actually surprised that the kids have plenty of room in the back, ample space between their knees and the front seats, typically most small cars are quite squishy, but they have plenty of room for comfort and can slip in their school bags easily between their feet!


The back seats fold down, which will come in very handy when visiting the homes of the winners, as I am sure we will fill it up with loads of shopping.  Every space needs good shelving, baskets, containers, storage boxes, pretty linens and even a nice ornament, hope you enjoy shopping this is going to be a blast!  We may need to grab some coffee in between all the shopping and organising too!


And finally a fantastic safety feature, the car chimes when one of the kids in the back (and those sitting in the front too) don’t have their seat belt on, lighting up on the center board telling me who’s seatbelt isn’t on.

Mary, I am thrilled to be able to meet three of my readers, I love organising and I hope to help just make a little difference in your homes. Good luck!

Such a fantastic competition! So generous of you and Kia! I would love to enter, but we’re currently building and living with my husbands parents while we do. I have loved reading your blog since discovering it a few months ago. I’m already storing ideas for when we get to move into our new house! Keep up the great work. 🙂

Kat - The Organised Housewife March 20, 2014 - 8:38 PM

Ooh, how exciting! Good luck with it all!

Nicole Joyce March 14, 2014 - 5:34 PM

What an amazingly generous prize. Pity you can’t come out to NZ to help me 🙂 I’m loving your blog and have suggested my friends and family check it out. I discovered it about 2 weeks ago and am presently catching up on all your previous posts.
I’m a mum of 4 kiddies (7, 5, 4 and 18 months) and have never felt I was getting on top of my housework or organising our home. I have recently started a part time admin job (have been a full time SAHM since my first was born) and am feeling rather overwhelmed with family, housework, time management – life in general. I’m hoping I will find more useful posts on your blog to help me feel more in control.
Looking forward to reading more of your great tips and advice, and implementing your ideas 🙂 keep up the great work xx

Thank you Nicole, good luck with it all!

Not sure if my entry went through? After a couple of minutes it said “unable to establish connection” or something like that. Do I need to redo?

Melissa Antolovic March 19, 2014 - 7:11 AM

I did my entry for your organising competition on Sunday but I got a message saying your message has been sent redirecting you and then the little circle thingy just kept spinning and then timed out. Do I need to resubmit it again? I hate to miss out on a chance for you to come help me organise my craft room

Megan March 19, 2014 - 8:30 AM

Entered!!!!! Oh boy do I need this sort of thing. It was just hard picking an area that needed attention but finally narrowed it down to one that would be more productive. Just before I saw this competition I was trying to sort out a solution to this problem area of my home so hopefully it was meant to be. Good luck everyone. 🙂

Kat - The Organised Housewife March 20, 2014 - 8:39 PM

That’s great! Good luck 🙂

Divya March 19, 2014 - 7:53 PM

Just submitted my form! I think it’s wonderful that you’re taking time to help 3 (lucky) readers! It’s very kind of you! Now, keeping my fingers crossed 🙂 Good luck everyone!

Kat - The Organised Housewife March 20, 2014 - 8:39 PM

Good luck!

I’m so sad that Canadians can’t join in!! Maybe next time??? :0)

I LOVE getting your daily e-mails – with 6 girls the tips are VERY needed some days!!!

Kathleen Brookes March 21, 2014 - 11:57 AM

I wish Canadians could be a part of this! I love your blog and your daily e-mails! Being a new stay at home military wife comes with it’s own duties and your blog has helped me stay motivated and keep organized. Thank you!
PS the new Soul looks so much nicer than the previous model! Thanks for posting pics!

Rachael March 21, 2014 - 8:30 PM

Entered. I have my fingers tightly crossed. I am in desperate need of your help. Good luck everyone.

Congratulations to the winners! I’ve been trying to find out who the winners were for days. I thought I must’ve missed the post announcing it, but couldn’t find it anywhere until now. On another note, I’ve just printed up my Mac calendar to keep track of all the things we want to do these holidays along with my work and other commitments. I’ve also written the kids wish list on it in the blank space at the bottom and top as I had no hope of remembering what they were and the exact dates. It’s the first time I’ve felt it necessary. Funny how I’ve now also just seen yours and it’s similar.
