a neat and slim laundry hamper

thinking out of the shoe box, john finds a smart solution with the ikea sandnes shoe cabinet to fit his 8″ deep and 42″ wide space for laundry.

“we took an ikea sandnes shoe storage cabinet, threw away the legs, and mounted the cabinet directly to the wall. instead of using it for shoes, we use it as a hamper. the two right flippers hold whites and the left ones hold the darks. we didn’t need a lot of hamper storage as the washer-dryer is in the adjacent bathroom. works for us.”

    This is an AWESOME way to pre-sort laundry while letting you skip that step at wash-time.
