Laundry Chaos: Where do we put our clothes?

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.


  1. I found you through iheartorganizing. :) I like the idea of splitting compartments for whites and darks. I'm going to have to go out and find something like that. :) I looked around your blog and liked the other post. Hope you don't mind if I follow. :)

  2. What a cute bag! I just use three white mesh ones from the dollar store so I can separate as I throw it in into reds, lights and darks. I did the Linens and the Loo challenge too and I'd love if you could pop over to my blog, check it out and follow me too :)

  3. Thanks.

    I'll pop over and take a look:)
