Organizer Spotlight: Lindsay Plum

If kitchen clutter and pantry chaos are driving you mad, it's time to bring in the professionals. For one Texas family, the meticulous systems of organizer Lindsay Plum and the NEAT Method Katy team provided the ultimate kitchen makeover.

The clients, who regularly cook for their family of four, struggled to efficiently store and access their vast array of ingredients and supplies. "The main obstacle was not being able to easily see or access priority items," Plum explains. "The clients often overbought duplicates because they lacked an easily shoppable system."

To solve this, the NEAT Method Katy team took a multi-pronged approach. First, they edited expired goods and pared down excess inventory by donating extra items to a local food bank. Then, they created designated zones for everyday essentials like cooking staples, dinner prep items, and kid snacks - all within easy reach.

One unique challenge they faced was finding an easily accessible home for the clients' impressive spice collection. "This client really utilizes a lot of spices when cooking almost daily," says Plum. "Yet they didn't want the spices lost or hard to find in the pantry."

The problem was ultimately solved by dedicating an entire pantry shelf at eye-level to the collection. Utilizing NEAT Method's acacia risers for visibility and accessibility, the spices finally had a refined, ultra-organized home. They even added a turntable drop zone by the stove for any "active" spices needed during meal prep.

Unsurprisingly, this bespoke spice solution was the clients' favorite feature. "Not only did we give the spices added visibility, but we solved the problem of them living on the counter between cooking sessions," Plum notes.

Beyond the showstopping spice wall, Plum credits NEAT Perforated Baskets as a project standout. "They allowed us to maximize shelf space while corralling categories," she explains. "This meant the clients could easily see and access everything - so helpful for meal planning and grocery runs."

The team also established an accessible "kid snack zone" for the family's 2.5-year-old that's unreachable for their 8-month-old with severe food allergies. Removing potential allergen exposures became super important during the meticulous editing process.

In the end, the NEAT Method Katy team cleared the cluttered path to an expertly organized, allergy-safe, and highly functional kitchen for their deserving clients.
