The Rubbermaid Hip-Hugger Laundry Basket is my absolute favorite basket to use. It makes carrying your laundry so convenient. There is a handle on one side, and the basked is curved so you can lean it against your hip while you hold the one handle. There is also the option of carrying it like a traditional laundry basket with two handles on the sides. I would say the only thing that doesn't always work great with this is that when I try to walk down the narrow stairways in the old farmhouse where I live, I cannot keep the basket on my hip. I have to turn it to the side. This isn't the fault of the basket...just a problem with older homes. This is just something to think about before you buy the basket. This laundry basket is really sturdy, and I haven't had a single basket that cracked or bent. I make sure to only have this type of laundry basket. Because of the shape, you will only be able to stack them upon each other. The traditional rectangular baskets will not fit inside this basket.
