I have never had a fancy system for sorting or doing our laundry. I have even used empty totes as dirty clothing hampers. But we saw this on at Bed, Bath, and Beyond and since I had a 20% off coupon, I picked it up. I was a smart buy! Our 5 year old son finds it entertaining to make sure to put his dirty clothes in the "right" bag. And even likes to debate with me sometimes about why he thinks something should go in a particular one instead of the one I am telling him to. :) The quality of construction is very good. Does not seem flimsy or cheap, at all. I like being able to take items out of the wash that I am not going to put in the dry and hang them up right then and there. I also keep a basket on the top rack that I put delicates and work clothes in. This prevents my husband form throwing them in with his military uniforms or other less delicate items and ruining them. I am VERY pleased with this purchase and would definitely recommend it to others.
