There was a time when my kids had hampers in their rooms. That is until every time I went to do laundry I would find legoes, stuffed animals and the occasional sneaker. In one of my "enough is enough moments", I removed the hampers from their rooms and changed to one hamper in the main bathroom.
Well, this is what has been happening. The dirty clothes makes it to the OUTSIDE of the hamper. I am not sure if the lid is to heavy or maybe they are not sure how to work the lid, but they always seem to put their clothes here and not INSIDE the hamper.
So I found a new hamper. It is a little pricey but I waited until it was half price. You can order one here at 31 bags
This hamper is located in the spot as the old one. ( After all I didn't want to confuse the children. )
It doesn't have a lid to lift.
And it is split into two compartments for whites and darks.
I must say we have had it for two weeks and so far the kids seem to be able to handle it. They are putting their clothes INSIDE the hamper. I guess that lid was tricky.
Added bonus: the bag has handles so it is easy to carry down the stairs. No more transferring into a basket and THEN hauling it downstairs.
