The UNperfect Family is all about helping other families manage their homes. From cooking to finances, from cleaning to organizing, you'll find easy to follow tips and ideas - no detailed cleaning schedules here!


After years of struggling to manage my home, constant disorganization, and many lost hours looking for things, I decided it was time to get organized once and for all! But it was no easy task. I was on a limited budget, had a full time job, and an ever growing family. I had to get creative. Sticking to any kind of schedule wasn't going to happen, and I didn't have money to blow on my dream products to make life easier. So I took it one step, one project, at a time. I could spend $5 to organize my closet, or $10 to make gallons of homemade laundry detergent. I was nowhere near the perfect family I wanted to be. And you know what? Neither were any of my friends! 

I decided to start this blog to share my tips and ideas to help other UNperfect families through this messy journey. It's not fancy. I don't use expensive products, or have professionals come in to help, and I still can't walk down the hall without stepping on a Lego. But I'm making progress, and you can, too!



I'm Catherine, a mother to three wonderful, beautiful, and very loud children. I'm also a full time student. I've worked full time, part time, from home, and not at all. Currently I'm a stay at home so I can focus on finishing my degree, but I hope to return to work soon.

I really struggle to keep my home clean and organized, and my husband is rarely around to help. I don't expect my house to ever look perfect, it's just not possible with kids at home. But I do try to bring order to the chaos. Follow me on my journey to managing my Unperfect home, with my UNperfect Family.
