    1. A foldable double hamper with removable liners you can simply detach and drag your presorted clothes to the laundry room.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Beautiful, sturdy, and holds a lot of laundry. Easy to assemble, just folds open and then you insert the flat bottom panel. Does have a plastic-y smell at first but who cares, it's for dirty laundry! I bought two and then ordered another! It's worth the extra money because it's not flimsy and will definitely last a long time. Plus the removable liner is a great idea. Some people claim it is more of a hassle, but you get the hang of it quickly (probably truly takes about 45 seconds). It attaches with four small Velcro loops. And with the amount of laundry this holds, you won't be removing a full bag every day, so the time it takes to detach and reattach the liner is totally worth the convenience it offers." —AmazonAddict

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

    2. Or a ~fancier~ double hamper to do the same job with a higher end look.

    amazon.com

    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." —Ajai J.

    Price: $94.74 (available in two colors)

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

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My husband ordered this without consulting me. I wasn't too happy when I saw this was the shape he ordered — 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!" —JB

    Price: $28.45+ (also available in white)

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

    amazon.com

    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." —Tammy

    Price: $29.99+ (available in five 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 dirty duds while they're contained.

    amazon.com

    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." —Shiner

    Price: $6.19+ (available in seven colors)

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

    amazon.com

    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." —Chris F.

    Price: $26:99+ (available in four colors, also in a double version)

    7. An adorable print with a waterproof coating — it can help it stand up to you kid's messes.

    amazon.com

    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)." —Gabs

    Price: $16.99 (available in five colors)

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

    amazon.com

    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!" —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 — it might just convince your kid to become a total cleaning animal!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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!" —Devin L

    Price: $16.49+ (available in eight animals)

    10. A wicker elephant that'll make picking up after yourself feel like less of a drag.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I purchased the large one and it is LARGE. The smaller size would have worked just as well and probably fit better in the space, but overall I love it. Holds a lot of clothes, towels, and bed linens, and fits in nicely in the kiddos' room. The white wicker has held up to everyday wear and tear. The laundry pouch inside is removable and washable. A damp cloth cleans up any mess on it. Some of the white paint has come off over time around the nob on top, but it is to be expected. It does not make it look like it is falling apart. I would highly recommend. Just measure prior!" —Kate Kline

    Price: $85.46+ (available in three colors and three sizes)

    11. A collapsible basket you can use to color code each family member's clothes, fold down, and then easily store.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these baskets! I now have five of them and get more laundry done. I put the clothes from the dryer in the first basket and fold clothes into each family member's basket to put away. Then when the baskets are empty, they crunch down for easy storage!" —B 35538

    Price: $23.99 (available in four color combos)

    12. A set of delicates bags to keep your fancy drawers intact in the wash.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product performs exactly as I hoped. Great for washing lingerie and other delicate items (or snag-likely items such as hooks or unusual buttons) in the washing machine. I used one of the medium-large bags to wash an expensive wool sweater in the washing machine (delicate cycle), and it turned out perfectly, and so easy to block for drying. No more tedious hand washing of wool sweaters — yay! The set includes a wide range of different-sized bags at a good price, and they are well made. The larger one will be excellent to use as a laundry bag when I travel. Very lightweight. I only wish I’d bought this sooner." —Anne D

    Price: $8.99 for seven bags

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

    amazon.com

    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." —DrChap

    Price: $15.95 (available in three colors)

    14. A basketball hoop that'll score big with chore avoiders and enforcers alike.

    amazon.com

    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!!" —Tami

    Price: $22.46

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

    amazon.com

    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!!!" —jammarc

    Price: $58.99

    16. A corner wicker fixture — it can go in tight spots where you gave up on putting a hamper.

    amazon.com

    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." —C. Henderson

    Price: $15.29

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

    amazon.com

    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 — 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 — 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." —Jessica Peck

    Price: $56.80+ (available in two sizes)

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

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

    amazon.com

    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 — 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." —George Goldberg

    Price: $47.90

    19. A charming carryall — it can handle a load and look good doing it.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "You easily lift the handles, which are a soft but thick rope, and push down on the inside to get it to take shape. It's made from a jute material with a cotton liner so it's sturdy enough to hold its shape easily on its own, even without clothes tossed in. I'd say it easily holds one if not two loads of laundry but that obviously depends on how much you chuck in your laundry machine at a time! They're lightweight, so they don't add a lot of extra weight when full and I've easily carried mine up/down two flights of stairs. They look very stylish and are a much better alternative to the regular plastic bins!" —Val

    Price: $14.99 (available in four styles)

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

    amazon.com

    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." —J. Henson

    Price: $39.66

    And check out a similar one with three sections.

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

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have to do l 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!" —Madame Sugar Kitten

    Price: $8.99

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

    amazon.com

    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." —Wendy

    Price: $64.99 (available in three colors)

    23. 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.

    amazon.com

    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." —Jack Vande Bunte

    Price: $19.46

    24. A graphic basket so no one's confused as to where their dirty undies belong.

    amazon.com

    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." —Sam

    Price: $16.88+ (available in seven colors)

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

    amazon.com

    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." —Matthew Paige

    Price: $48.96

    26. A classic wicker hamper — it can hide your sweaty gym shorts and comes in a variety of colors to match your bathroom decor.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "It's just a laundry hamper but it's simple, clean, neat, and sturdy. The padded top is solid and heavy so that it will stay closed in the event that it's overstuffed with clothing. We had one identical to this which lasted years and years and years and the darn thing wouldn't wear out, LOL. When we remodeled our master bedroom and bathroom I decided it was time to retire this workhorse and get one that matched our remodeled bedroom. This is definitely worth the price, great quality, and just what we needed." —Karen C

    Price: $37.56+ (available in five colors)

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

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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." —Melanie Gilbert

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

    And check out a similar, shorter version.

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

    amazon.com

    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!" —Pat88

    Price: $22.85+ (available in five colors)

    29. A hamper with two lids so your navy socks don't accidentally end up in the lights load again.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is the perfect size and look that I needed for my restroom. Not too much. Just enough to do what it is intended for and looks very stylish. It took only a few seconds to assemble by my 8-year-old son. Lots of capacity, beautiful, and lightweight enough to easily move for cleaning the floor. Life saver! Highly recommend!!!!!" —Pam

    Price: $24.99

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

    amazon.com

    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." —Jheneya

    Price: $16.30
