Save money on hampers by using duffle bags for dirty
clothing. Duffle bags are easily sewn and are thrift friendly. Give each
family member their own duffle bag and make it easy for them to carry their own
dirty clothing to the washing machine, and when of appropriate age, to do it themselves.
Here are more frugal tips to save money on hampers.
- Buy hampers with a liner that
you can wash with each load, or make a cloth liner for your hamper. Wash
the cloth with each load to keep clothing cleaner. If the cloth in the hamper tears, you can
easily repair it with your sewing machine.
- Any light plastic container
will serve as a hamper. If you want to use a heavier container, you will either need a liner, which you can easily make out of fabric, or a
portable plastic hamper to transfer the clothes to the laundry room.
- To make life easier, just give
each person in your family a light, portable plastic hamper for their closet or
a duffel bag.
