I’m so honored to be part of the BHG Live Better Influencer Network where, as a blogger, I’ve received compensation from Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart. The opinions stated in “Organizing tips for a clutter-free closet” are my own.

I confess… I don’t like closets! Also, I admit I love organization! For almost 4 years now we’ve had a very messy master room closet. The lack of space and the right tools for getting everything in its place made our small and crowded 9’ x2 1/2’ feel like a monster!
I will spare you the painful before, but after getting rid of some pipe clothing racks and adding some new closet modules, things started to get interesting. Now here comes the fun part; with these organizing tips for a clutter-free closet, I was able to get this area back in order in no time!
Out of sight out of mind
Living in a small home has some perks, but one of the many disadvantages is space limitation. We recently acquired the Better Homes & Gardens Knox Upholstered Platform Bed and one of the many things that I love about it is the underneath space. This area is perfect for hiding seasonal stuff or things that don’t get used that often. For this task, I’m using the Better Homes & Gardens Grey Rolling Underbed Storage Organizer. I mean, how amazing is the fact that these little carts can easily glide in and out without any problem; so accessible! I was also impressed by their sizes (26” x 16” x 5.9”). They also have a plastic cover that closes with a zipper to keep everything inside dust free.
For all those comforter sets that won’t fit in our hallway mini closet, I found the Better Homes & Gardens Grey Set of 2 Underbed Storage Bags. These also come with a plastic cover and zipper closing but are bigger in size. Their faux leather handles make them easy for sliding back and forth from underneath the bed.
Big and small boxes
Now that I had a better-looking closet, organizing those last bits and pieces was my main priority. I had some seasonal pieces that I didn’t want to put on hangers or hide in the attic. Although folding them neatly seemed like a good idea, I chose to place these inside some Better Homes & Gardens Grey Large Collapsible Bin with Label Holder. You wouldn’t believe how many things I was able to store inside these bins!
I had some narrow closet space left on the top area and because of this, not all boxes available in the market would be able to fit in this area. I was so happy when I found the Better Homes & Gardens Half Bin (in cream) at Walmart which measures 12.75” x 15” x 6”. Inside I was able to put 4 pairs of shoes (that I don’t use that often) and my husband’s computer travel bag and my camera stuff.
Another favorite piece from the Better Homes & Gardens storage collection at Walmart was a Grey Sweater Bin. Love how these hid perfectly my husband’s sweaters and caps. The straps on the sides make it easy to carry and adds a bit of elegance.
All these amazing bins made this small closet look more neatly and less cluttered… hence organized!
His/hers laundry time:
Well, mostly his… but so useful for “hers” as well. The Better Homes & Gardens Laundry Sentiments Collapsible Laundry Tote besides being cute is so convenient for throwing in his work shirts. The lightweight aluminum handles make this tote easy to carry and its size is perfect hiding it inside the closet. When full, all I’ll do is to place everything inside the Better Homes & Gardens Grey Pumice Drawstring Laundry Bag and it’s ready to roll!
I’m now much more in control of what used to feel like a monster in the closet. Because of these tips for a clutter-free closet, everything looks in its place. Also, I love that every piece from this collection of Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart comes in gray and cream colors. This helps to bring a little elegance into this space beside some unity. What area in your house is in need of an organizing intervention?

Is there a way to prevent the tops of the glass hand pump dispensers from rusting?

Not that I know. But some of these tops can be replaced by the ones used in mason jars.
