Hello and welcome! I’m Kat aka The Organised Housewife. I’m a wife to a wonderful man and mum of 3 children 18 year old twins and my youngest is 16. We live on the beautiful Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.
I started writing this blog back in 2010 sharing my tips on creating calm amongst the chaos of everyday life.
I wasn’t always as organised as I am today, I’ve had my share of struggles and melt downs, as all mothers tend to do, but going through that helped me to adapt routines to help keep the house under control.
On The Organised Housewife blog I share daily tips and ideas to keep the home and family organised. Ideas to create new habits like making the bed first thing in the morning, creating a routine for the kids to make mornings chaos and frustration free or suggesting areas to clean that you may forget about, such as the dust on the ceiling fans. My aim is to motivate and inspire readers to enjoy the journey they are living with their family while easily keeping a tidy home.
I also love creating charts, checklists, planners and more, which all help me in different ways in the home from cleaning the house to reward charts for the kids and routine charts which help the kids with their morning tasks, but in turn helps me keep my sanity so I am not repeatedly yelling at them to brush their teeth!! All my charts are available as an instant download (which means you can purchase and print them within minutes) all in my shop.
There are several different subscription options for this blog, when you sign up to any of the newsletters you will receive my ‘7 things I do each day to keep the home clean and organised’ mini eBook.
You will also find me chatting on Facebook and pinning on Pinterest, I do have a twitter account but am rarely on there. Follow along on Instagram to see a more personal side of me.
I am often asked “I need help but where do I start”? I start at the front door of my home and work my way through from left to right. I firstly declutter, organise and then clean. View this page to help you to determine what your organising goals are.
