laundry sorter

Submitted by jsa271 on Sun, 08/12/2012 - 21:09

I used the instructions from ana-white's website. Instead of building 2 separate boxes for 6 baskets, I decided to make one big sorter that would hold 6 baskets. The sorter has been an amazing help. We have a family of 6. 3 baskets for dirty and 3 baskets for folded clean clothes. 3 Dirty baskets: whites, colors, and sheets/towels. As for the other 3 baskets: 2 people per basket. The top of the sorter provides counter space to fold.

With a family of 7 (soon to be 8) we really need this. Thanks for sharing the uses of each basket. That is what I am trying to figure out. I also need the washer/dryer pedestals for dirty laundry so the dresser could just be for clean, but homeschooling and cooking for all these kids keeps me from jumping in to projects and the pedestals may be a long way off as my (very talented) husband's busy season is starting.
