Until recently, I hadn’t needed to buy a hamper in a long time. My husband I use an antique steamer trunk like this one for our dirty clothes, but a few months ago it was time to replace my son’s hamper. After some Amazon searches, we found this slim, compact one that fits well in the available space. (This random brand makes both hampers and … fans. As you do.)

One handy feature of this hamper is the removable mesh laundry bag inside — no need to take time filling a bag on laundry day, because this one will already be filled! And if you want to avoid sorting your laundry all at once, consider getting a pair of these so you can sort items daily.

I must say this hamper is a little tricky to assemble, though when you figure it out, it’s simple. (Don’t worry, nothing IKEA-level here! My 13-year-old put it together.) There are some tips in the Amazon reviews if you need help. Also note that it’s hard to judge the sizes online, so make sure to read the dimensions and measure your space.

This hamper is under $25 at Amazon for the smallest size and available in five colors, depending on size. (The pictured “blue-gray” is more blue in person.)
