Sort It Out

So I have been sick and tired of sorting the laundry when I take it down and then sorting again right before I wash a load. Then when the hubby decides to help and take the laundry down I either have to go down with him and sort it or go down later and sort it. State of affairs were that there was not enough room to actually sort out ALL the laundry so that each "basket" was a load type.

We finally solved that problem, yay!!! This is what I was working with...

Sort It Out - before

This is most of the laundry, excluding Hubby's nasty, grubby clothes. We used 2x4's, screws, and scrap lumber to construct the laundry sorter that holds 10 laundry baskets and is roughly 62.5 inches tall, 40.5 inches wide and 24 inches deep.

Sort It Out - build

Sort It Out - side pieces

Sort It Out - main pieces

Sort It Out - helping

Sort It Out - adding rungs{those little scraps are what the baskets slide in and out of on}

Sort It Out - all finished!

Since it is for the basement and not many people are brave enough, stupid or whatever but me and 2 other people, it is not very pretty. It does however make laundry a lot easier. All that is left is making some cute signs for each basket...thinking some sort of chalkboard signs.

Here are two super sweet laundry sorters from Ana White!
