I use this laundry sorter as a hamper and it is great. It holds a lot of cloths and is extremely strong. My washer is on the other side of my apt. and it is great not to have to carry the dirty laundry anymore. As a bonus if I take the bags of dirty laundry out I can set my laundry basket down into the opening, it is supported by the 2 top cross bars, and roll my clean laundry back. The bags come with substantial metal handles that make removing the bags incredibly easy. If you only have a small amt of laundry in a bag it is easy to remove and comfortable to carry. The handles remove and reinstall easily so the bags can be washed. The bags are heavy duty canvas not cotton like some other sorters. The wheels roll very smoothly on carpeting.
