BEFORE: I am horrified how much clutter we have in here.
Have you ever seen so many canned goods or condiments? Lordy!
Valerie and Amy hard at work! I am thankful that they didn’t run for the hills when they saw my pantry.
All bins, baskets and storage items are labeled. This makes identification simple.

One of the things I love about January is it’s the beginning of a new year. While most folks make New Year’s Resolutions, I focus on making lists of things I want to accomplish immediately. One of those things is being more organized… with my time, my blog and my life. So I decided to start with our home. Let me introduce you to NEAT Method and show you how they transformed my kitchen pantry utilizing items from The Container Store.
First of all, I am horrified to show you the before pictures of my pantry. It’s a hot mess! I mean, just look at the stuff everywhere, especially on the floor. Second, Pete must think there will be a shortage of canned food soon and he’s buying out the local grocery store. Bless his heart, if it’s on sale, he thinks we need it. At least he will go to the grocery store, a task which I hate to complete.
I reached out to NEAT Method because I had seen the results other people were getting. And I absolutely love The Container Store so this was a win-win! Co-Founded by Ashley Murphy and Molly Graves, NEAT Method is a “organization” company with operations across the country. In Dallas, Valerie Wood is the Professional Organizer that will change you life.
How it works: Valerie will meet with you in your home for a short assessment to discuss your needs and organization priorities. They can organize just about anything including the following: Attics, Bathrooms, Bedrooms, Closet Organizing & Design, Garages, Holiday Prep & Storage, Home Office / Den, Kitchens & Pantries, Laundry Rooms, Mudroom, Nurseries / Kids Rooms, Space Planning & Arrangement and Storage Areas. After the consultation, you will get a proposal outlining each area and how many hours it will take to organize. Then they will make an appointment to complete the task. If anything is needed, they run to the store and get it for you. You do absolutely nothing!
My pantry organization took 4 hours. We just had it done on Tuesday morning and I am LOVING it! The first step is to empty your space and assess all the items. In the case of our pantry, they go through all the food products and make a separate pile of anything that is expired. You choose whether you want to put them back in the pantry (no, thank you!). Get this, they even haul it off for you. Next they add all the bins, baskets and storage items obtained at The Container Store and strategically organize the items back in to your space. Once they are done, they present the organized result to you. Can you just say WOW?
I believe one of the reasons we have 5 bottles of A-1 steak sauce is because we couldn’t see it. So every time we went to the grocery store we would pick one up. Or maybe Pete thought there was a buy one, get four for free sale. 🙂 Regardless, my kitchen pantry now looks beautifully curated and I can see every single thing.
Want to have the organized life? I highly recommend giving NEAT Method a try by contacting Valerie by e-mail: Valerie@neatmethod.com or give her a ring at 940.765.0664. This also makes an excellent gift as a house-warming or welcoming a new baby. They have gift certificates!
Here’s to an organized 2018! xoxo- Tanya
