Housekeeping Heaven: Getting to Know Courtney


Housekeeping Heaven: Get to Know Courtney

My name is Courtney – but most people across the web know me as Homemaker Hero. I am a perfect blend between the 1950’s housewife and the modern housewife.

Aside from being a homemaker and having a website, what qualifies me to have my own cleaning column on Homemaker Barbi? I know way more about cleaning that most people should. I’m fascinated with history – especially history about subjects I deal with on a daily basis. It’s no secret that girls have a lot of stuff and when my husband and I ended up raising three of them, I was forced to learn everything I could about cleaning and organizing.

I’ll be sharing these tips as well as some history right here every Tuesday. If you have any questions or problems you’d like solved, don’t hesitate to send an email  to homemakerhero(at)gmail(dot)com or comment and I’ll try to help you out.

If you are reading this column because you have absolutely no cleaning habits and want to learn how to have a clean house, there’s one thing you will need to understand. It takes 30 days of consistently doing something for it to become a habit. So if at first you don’t succeed, keep at it for 30 straight days. Cleaning will soon have a permanent place in your life.

Being a writer with three kids, a husband, a dog, a home business, and a personal life – you best believe that I will find the easiest and fastest ways to get the job done while still doing a good job. I hope you will follow along with me every Tuesday to get your home looking as good as the day you moved in.

Next, check out Housekeeping Heaven for “Cleaning for Kids”.   You can also find Courtney on twitter @HomemakerHero.

    I think this site is a great thing and the Housekeeping Heaven is such a good idea. It seems as though some people, especially young wives and mothers, just don’t know how to clean. I have gone into some people’s houses and they think it’s clean, but it just isn’t. They just don’t know how. I would love to give these people tips and “how-to’s”, but coming from me would be a sticky situation (I’m the mother in law). Now the problem is, how to get them to this site.
