I prefer a laundry basket over traditional hampers for sorting, folding and returning laundry to it’s proper home! I do however use a narrow hamper in between my washer and dryer to catch the kitchen and bath towels.
If you have the room, sort as you go… place 2 hampers in each clothes closet: one for whites, one for colors. However not all closets allow you that luxury! Rubbermaid has a product that may work in your space- the Stack’ n Sort Laundry Basket uses your vertical space wisely. Take a peek and see if it fits in your closet!
Another option is to continue using what you have in your closets and keep a special set of baskets in your laundry room for sorting. Depending on your space and sorting needs there are several options. Check out these Laundry Baskets and be sure to look at the product specifications to make sure they fit perfectly in your space!
