    1. A foldable double hamper with removable liners you can simply detach and use to drag your presorted clothes to the laundry room. So much of the work is already done!


    Promising review: "I was looking for a quality hamper that wouldn't collapse when full, but could also break down for transport when needed. This fits the bill perfectly. You can move the entire unit when assembled, or fold in the center divider to break it down and flatten it out when you need to move it. It's got two removable mesh laundry bags that fit on either side, which is perfect for keeping your colors separate from the whites, and for carrying your clothes to the washing machine. Very Pleased!" β€”John A. Thompson

    Price: $39.96+ (available in six colors, also with a single compartment)

    2. Or a ~fancier~ double hamper to do the same job with a pricer look. Oh, and the built-in handles for easy carrying is a nice touch.


    Promising review: "Makes laundry easy and looks really nice. Trust the other reviewers, it is really inconspicuous. It looks like a piece of furniture, not a hamper." β€”Ajai J.

    Price: $92.96+ (available in two colors)

    3. A tall, flexible hamper for handling multiple loads without breaking your back.


    Promising review: "My husband ordered this without consulting me. I wasn't too happy when I saw this was the shape he ordered β€” I was used to a more traditional rectangular basket. However, what a great purchase! It holds A LOT of clothes, doesn't have a huge footprint in our laundry room and is very easy to carry, even when it's at it's fullest. I'll never go back to a traditional basket again!" β€”JB

    Price: $28.75

    4. A foldable bamboo hamper because laundry hampers are a necessary evil that can also look very nice!


    Promising review: "I am seriously impressed with this hamper. I have back problems, so I needed something I wouldn't have to bend down to move. I also wanted something aesthetically pleasing. This hamper met both of those needs, and it is well made, to boot. It was very easy to put together and really sturdy. I also like that I can just pull the liner/bag out and carry it to the washer. I can't say enough good things about it." β€”Tammy

    Price: $34.99+ (available in four colors)

    And check out a similar double hamper or a similar corner hamper.

    5. A mesh drawstring bag for letting the air circulate around your sweaty gym clothes while keeping 'em contained.


    Promising review: "This bag works wonderfully for my gym clothes. I'd rather not foul up my normal laundry with stinky workout gear, so I keep those garments isolated in this bag. It keeps the stink in admirably and washes up nicely with those clothes." β€”Shiner

    Price: $5.60+ (available in seven colors)

    6. A magnetic lidded hamper to help hide your dirty socks from the world, aka your roommates.


    Promising review: "This is a great hamper. It looks good in your bedroom so you don't have to hide it like some cheap ones. It is pretty strong, I haven't sat on it or anything, but you can put other hampers on top of it if need be for some time and not worry about it collapsing. The two sides fold in so it can collapse flat. Its lid closes well and helps keep the smell of dirty clothes to a minimum. It has two handles for easy transport to your laundry room. Other reviewers complain about the smell, I didn't really have that problem. I have a fairly sensitive nose (I can smell the kitty litter two floors up at times), but I opened this up and it had a bit of the standard new product/chemical smell. I let it air out for a day or so and it's been completely fine. I've been using this every day for almost six months now. It doesn't smell, my clothes don't smell, and it still works and looks great! I wish it'd go on sale more often as I'd like to pick up a couple more." β€”Chris F.

    Price: $29:99+ (available in four colors, also in a double version)

    7. An adorable print with an adorable pattern and waterproof coating β€” it can help it stand up to you kid's messes.


    Promising review: "This hamper is super cute and very good quality. It's very lightweight, so it's super easy to transport (I use it in my baby's nursery and every other day I move it to our laundry area downstairs, so for me the fact that it's light works great)." β€”Gabs

    Price: $12.99 (available in five colors)

    8. An XL cotton laundry bag for hiding allllll your dirty little secrets.


    Promising review: "As a poor college student I tend to hold off on laundry until I have literally nothing left to wear. Before I had these bags it was an absolute nightmare dragging laundry to the laundromat. I bought two of these (originally thinking I'd separate my lights and darks, good one) and they are amazing!!! They make lugging my huge loads of laundry so simple!! They hold soooooooooooo much laundry. I'm not joking when I say that they fit all of my clothes for a month in them. Buy them, you will NOT be disappointed!" β€”TheMalkowskiSquad

    Price: $7.99+ (also available in beige)

    And check out a pair of similar cotton bags or a pair of similar ripstop bags.

    9. A charming helper β€” it might just convince your kid to become a total cleaning animal!


    Promising review: "Love this hamper! We have three children and have used a number of various styles of hamper, and this is my favorite for the kids! Sturdy canvas structure, cute characters and colors, handles for carrying to and from the laundry room, and the handles fold down to make a hole in the top that kids can use to fill the hamper on their own (my older kids like making a game out of that). It's been a couple of months now since we got the goat style and I definitely recommend it. We actually ended up buying the deer and octopus styles for our two older kids because we liked it so much!" β€”Devin L

    Price: $14.99+ (available in nine animals)

    10. A set of delicates bags that'll keep your fancy drawers intact in the wash.


    Promising review: "My old laundry bags were falling apart, so I bought these. I'm very happy so far with the quality and make of the bags. The zippers are easily slipped into a casing to prevent them from opening during the wash. They also come out easily when you're done. I've now used all the sizes that came, from delicate wool sweaters and lingerie to vests with many attachments that often have gotten stuck with other wash items. The bags themselves dry very quickly." β€”Mora and Erik

    Price: $8.99 for seven bags

    11. A door hamper bag to collect miscellaneous dirty things right where they belong, the laundry room!


    Promising review: "This laundry hanging bag is really cool. We installed it in seconds and, surprisingly, it holds a lot more laundry than I expected. We had a significant issue with things being thrown on the floor in our mudroom area, so we sought a solution. The material is sufficient and the hole is big enough to fit most garments through. Strong buy. Go for it." β€”DrChap

    Price: $15.95 (available in five colors)

    12. A basketball hoop can score big with chore avoiders and enforcers alike.


    Promising review: "I love these! I purchased one for each of my boys' rooms and the only negative is that I should have bought one for my husband too. Lol. Not a single piece of clothing on the floor since. Basket is on the small side as other reviews say. But it makes me empty them when there is about a load between two of them, so it works out for me!!" β€”Tami

    Price: $26.49

    13. A sorting cart with removable hanging hampers as a one-stop mobile shop for all your clean stuff!


    Promising review: "I LOVE this sorter system!! Our laundry room is next to the garage and as far away from the bedrooms as possible. This sorter makes hauling laundry back and forth SO much easier. I just wheel it to the laundry, wash, hang stuff on the bar, and roll back to the bedrooms to put clothes away. This might make laundry enjoyable! The baskets hold far more than I thought they would. By the time the 'darks' bin was full it was what I customarily run in two loads. The bar at the top holds a lot of laundry and isn't flexing at all. The feel of it is sturdy, not flimsy materials. I put it together myself in no time at all, and while that is definitely possible, it would have been SO much easier with another pair of hands to hold/stabilize. Check your measurements. it is bigger than I expected it to be, but it is not huge. The bags are a sturdy material and I think they will hold up well. Seriously, I love this product!!!" β€”jammarc

    Price: $59.90

    14. A corner wicker fixture β€” it can go in tight spots where you gave up on putting a hamper eons ago.


    Promising review: "When I pulled it out of the box I thought WHA? Flimsy looking thing. However, I put it together and it is working great. Stands up to a full load of packed-in clothes. My bathroom is small and this was literally the only hamper I could find that would fit the space without cramping and it fits WONDERFULLY. What is more is that the bathroom is staying so much neater because we have the bin in an easily accessible spot. I saw this listed with some retailers for close to $30 and I would not pay that much for it, but I paid around $15 and that is fair and reasonable for the product." β€”C. Henderson

    Price: $19

    15. A heavy-duty rolling hamper for carting up to 200 lbs. of dirty goods. (Surely that'll be enough?!)


    Promising review: "I live in a high rise elevator building in NYC with a laundry room on a separate floor. This hamper is ideal for that setup. The hamper allows me to drag two industrial front-load washer loads of laundry from my apartment to the laundry room via elevator. It gets over the door thresholds easily and the grab handles on the sides make it easy to pull behind you β€” I've always found push carts awkward. The wheels do not squeak but are roll easily on carpet or hard floors. I have lined the hamper with a heavy-duty canvas laundry bag so that I can wash the liner about once a month. If you're shy about having the top open for all to see, the liner bag allows for a drawstring closure while you transport your laundry. I could have sewn a large drawstring bag with cheap fabric for this purpose (with the same dimensions as the bag above) but my free time is rare/expensive these days. This hamper is incredibly useful for evicting clothes from an upper-level stacked dryer β€” it can just roll up to the dryer bank and is wide enough to dump clothes directly from the dryer into the hamper without having to first dump into a laundry cart and then pack into a bag or cart. Then I roll the hamper to my apartment and dump the clothes on the bed for folding. It comes fully assembled and I have noticed no deterioration in the joints or wheels in the four months I've been using it for once-a-week laundry day." β€”Jessica Peck

    Price: $56.59+ (available in two colors)

    Check out a similar hamper that comes with a removable liner.

    16. A plastic rolling option that'll provide no-lift transport and easy cleaning with a wipe down.


    Promising review: "Everything goes into it in the bedroom, I wheel it into the laundry room, do the laundry, put all the clean clothes into it, and wheel it back into the bedroom β€” I haven't had to lift anything all the while. An enormous relief. My only criticism is that when empty it will not stay upright but has to be leaned against something. Nevertheless, It sure beats my old hamper-and-basket method." β€”George Goldberg

    Price: $51.69 for three

    17. A minimalist carryall β€” it can handle a load and look good doing it.


    Promising review: "I live in a two-story townhouse, have mobility problems, and need to use one hand to hang on to the handrail of my stairs when I go between floors. This bag is *perfect* for the one-handed transport of laundry, and pretty much anything else, up and down those stairs. It has a solid bottom, so I can carry things that need to stay 'this side up' fairly well as long as I don't let the bag hit the steps. Its sides are fairly stiff, so it sits on the floor open, by itself, without collapsing (after one filling to get the wrinkles incurred in shipping out of it), so I can move things in and out without interference, as long as I don't hit the handles or top edges of the bag. I'm a very happy camper." β€”Dan J. Henderson

    Price: $11.99+ (available in two colors)

    18. A sectioned sorter ready to keep your delicates separate from your permanent press regulars.


    Promising review: "I have been using this cart daily for a few weeks now and love it! If put together properly, it holds up well. It doesn't feel flimsy or like it's going to tip over/tilt like some carts seem to do. I initially thought the bags looked small, but once it's all put together it works just fine. I can fit 2+ loads of laundry in each bag. The hooks have grips so they don't slip around or pop off too much when taking clothes out of the bags. The casters are good quality. The whole cart is smooth and easy to roll around. I have mainly hard surface floors. Laundry seems to accumulate all around the house, so I roll it around with me as I clean. I have decided that if I have more laundry than can fit in the four bins, I'm too far behind. The bags feel durable. I'm not afraid of them tearing as I move around or jam clothes down." β€”J. Henson

    Price: $47.79

    And check out a similar one with three sections.

    19. A canvas duffle to help you schlep your laundry pile to the laundromat.


    Promising review: "I have to do laundry at a laundromat so I decided to scrap all the plastic laundry baskets and go for a few of these. They're amazing! They are good, heavy-duty quality, they fit just enough that you got a couple loads in there but they're not too full that they're too heavy and when they're empty I just hang them up until I need them! One of my best purchases on Amazon yet!" β€”Madame Sugar Kitten

    Price: $14.50

    20. A stair-climbing trolley you'll thank the laundry gods for again and again.


    Promising review: "LOVE LOVE LOVE this thing. It's so stylish and amazingly convenient. The bag section comes away from the trolley so can be used as a furniture dolly too! The bag is large and holds a week's worth of laundry and it rolls very easily. The bag has a drawstring top to cover the laundry and keep it hidden/safe while you transport it. It's expensive but worth it." β€”Wendy

    Price: $64.99 (available in three colors)

    21. A huge bag with industrial-strength straps so you won't be caught with a mountain of clothes on the sidewalk en route to the laundromat.


    Promising review: "This bag is solid. I bought three different laundry bags and used them all equally. The other two brands I bought broke (strap ripped off one, whole bag tore on another) and this one seems at least three times more durable than the other two. I punt it down the stairs stuffed full and it just keeps on being solid." β€”Jack Vande Bunte

    Price: $15.99

    22. A graphic basket to clear up any confusion as to where their dirty undies belong.


    Promising review: "Effective carrying with one hand, no bending over, material is firm enough to stand up, manly colors available, lightweight, takes up even less space (vertical vs. horizontal), and can collapse out of the way if I need it to. Easily holds a week and a half of clothes for me." β€”Sam

    Price: $15.99+ (available in seven colors)

    23. A foldable bamboo option if you're in the market for something that looks like it belongs in a fancy spa.


    Promising review: "Easy to assemble. I am legally blind and managed to assemble it without having to refer to instructions. Just unfold it, place the bottom piece inside, put the dowel through the top of the cloth bag and hand bag, then slide lid hinges on. Takes less than a minute. If you look at the photo it seems like dirty clothes would hang out in the spaces between the wood, but the bag which hangs on the interior prevents that and keeps it looking neat and tidy. I bought this hamper because a new cat liked to sharpen his claws on the hamper with the wicker exterior and kind of tor eit up a little. So far, no such problems with this hamper. The cat still uses the new hamper as a step to get to the windowsill, which is fine." β€”Matthew Paige

    Price: $53.96

    24. A ~ventilated~ mesh pop-up hamper that'll be at home in any dorm room or any other room, tbh.


    Promising review: "Your sporting teens need this hamper. The mesh-ventilated sides means dirty uniforms and other lightweight gear like sweaty headbands and stinky socks can be thrown in without worrying that weird bacteria will ferment and grow before wash day. We keep two hampers in our mudroom. The tall, narrow size has a small footprint, and it can be folded up and tucked away in between uses. I wouldn’t recommend it for heavy-duty fabrics like jeans and blankets, but for lightweight use – even if filled to the brim – it’s a handy little hamper. My kids carry it over their shoulders like a bag to the basement laundry room. It's not bulky, is easy to use, and you can’t beat the price." β€”Melanie Gilbert

    Price: $6.99+ (available in eight colors and designs)

    And check out a similar, shorter version.

    25. A collapsible tote with the stuff to carry heavy loads you've been putting off for far too long.


    Promising review: "I help someone with their laundry and the machines are in the basement of a split level house. I am able to stick a load of laundry in the bag and carry it up the stairs. It is flat bottomed so I can rest it on the stairs while I open the child gate to get up to the main floor. It is a great bag!" β€”Pat88

    Price: $17.17+ (available in six colors)

    26. And a simple folding hamper cheap enough to buy a few at a time and stick in multiple rooms.


    Promising review: "I love the large size of this hamper. I'm using it for my two kids and it can easily hold a couple of weeks' worth of clothes. It's also made of a sturdy canvas material so it stands straight up with no slouching. It'd be a good storage box or toy box, as well." β€”Jheneya

    Price: $16.41
