Different Colored Clothes Basket

I found a great time-saving tip for laundry day. I use different colored baskets for different loads of laundry, ie: white basket-white clothes, red basket-bright clothes, blue for dark clothes, and green for hubby's work clothes. This is so easy my 4 year old can sort her own dirty clothes, and on laundry day I do not have to sort before throwing the clothes into the washer.

Excellent idea! Where did you get a red basket? The only colors I have ever seen for sale are white, beige, green, and blue.

I cant remember where i got the red one, i have had it for years, but you can use the beige one, just make sure family members know that the bright clothes go in that basket. This has also helped my daughter learn how to sort things by color and learn colors.
