Hi there and welcome to Tidy Life Happy Wife. Your one stop shop for getting your home and life in order.

Whether you’re looking for an easy hack to get your window tracks clean, some trick to convince your hoarder husband to get rid of a few of his gazillion t-shirts, or a simple solutions for organizing and storing decades of family photos, I’ve got you covered.

My name is Tanya Plattner, and I’m so happy you’re here! 🤗 I’m a cleaning, decluttering, and organizing nut who loves sharing all of my tips and tricks with anybody who’ll listen. I’m a firm believer that a little less mess = a lot less stress, and we could all use a little less stress.

What ‘qualifies’ me to give you advice? Experience! Over 40 😲 years of it.

I was a pretty tidy child and stayed that way through most of my young adult life. I even earned really money working with my grandmother in her cleaning business as an adolescent.

In my late thirties, life got super busy and I went through a messy patch where I let a lot of things go. Truth be told, I sort of turned into a bit of a slob. My home was enough of a mess that I was too embarrassed to have people over even though I absolutely love to entertain and spend time with family and friends.

I went from the girl that was always prepared, put together, and 15 minutes early, to one that was a habitually late, chaotic mess. I was frustrated, exhausted, overwhelmed, and falling apart at the seams. Something had to give!

A few helpful tidying habits, some simple household organization systems, and an efficient home cleaning routine have me loving my life again, and they can work for you too.
