How to create a space saving laundry sorting system

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

I do not have a lot of space in my laundry room. A standard laundry hamper just did not fit in my laundry room. I had to get creative. I wanted a system so I could sort my clothes into 3 categories. Of course you can create a system to include as many categories of laundry as you need. I have 3 categories; dark colors, light colors and whites. I went to the store and bought 3 laundry bags, one for each laundry category. I also bought 3 hooks, to hang the laundry bags on a wall.

Materials Needed

3 Laundry Bags

3 Wall Hooks

Hardware to hang hooks on wall
