Since there's only my husband and I here, and he's gone 3 weeks at a time, this wouldn't be practical for us. BUT! I did alter it a little. I use one basket for each type load----whites, lights, darks, colors, sheets/towels.
Also I have one of those 3 basket rolling things. I used to roll it back and forth from our bathroom at the opposite end of the house to the laundry room. But it never failed, it was always in the wrong end of the house when we took off our dirty clothes! So I got 4 of those pop-up/collapsable baskets. I put those in the bathroom where we take our showers and change clothes, and the roll away is in a corner of the laundry room out of the way. Now when it's time to wash a certain load, I just go in the bathroom and bring it to the laundry room and dump it into the rollaway. Then I can return the basket to the bathroom and I don't have piles on the floor anymore.
