When you’ve got a small place, laundry can get complicated in a number of ways. For one, when I lived in a shoebox of an NYC studio, my drying rack took up so much floor space that I could barely squeeze around it to get into my bathroom. Of course, due to the size constraints, I didn’t have the luxury of in-unit laundry, so hauling weeks’ worth of clothes up and down the stairs was a horrible hassle. And last but not least, my full-sized hamper sat awkwardly in my kitchen, the only area with a sliver of unused space.

I’ve since left that place behind, but I still have a small apartment mindset. Meaning that even though I’m working with more room, I still try to employ every space-saving trick I learned over the years. For example, when you can find a collapsible version of an item you need, you should definitely snag it. (You can check out our list to get some inspiration.) I just found such a product at QVC that I wish I had then, but certainly would still buy now: Honey-Can-Do’s collapsible laundry basket set. In addition to transporting clothes to and from the machine, it doubles as storage and a hand-washing basin. Best of all, for a limited time, it’s priced at over half off, and if you’re a new customer, you can get an extra $10 off with the code WELCOME24.

What is the Honey-Can-Do Set of 2 Collapsible Rubber Laundry Baskets?

As mentioned above, this set can serve a number of uses, whether you’re a tiny space dweller or not. You can use both baskets to separate your items by color or type; you can employ one basket for laundry while the other holds extra clothes or cleaning supplies; one basket can be designated for hand-washing delicates. They can also become vessels for transporting things from one room to another. Beyond their multi-functionality, though, the best part is that when your bins aren’t being put to work, they’ll fold almost completely flat. So you can slide them under your bed, between the washer and dryer, or in the closet without sacrificing a ton of storage space.

What QVC Reviewers are Saying

Average Rating: 4.2/5

“Easy to fold and unfold from the bottom. Becomes a nice size laundry basket, and then becomes compact for storage when not in use. Would also be great for a dorm or small apartment.” – Csmith3737

“If you have a small home or if you don’t have a lot of storage space these are amazing. They are a perfect size for laundry but easily collapse for storage. I put them beside the washer when not in use or can easily slide under the bed. Very easy to use and they look nice. I need about four more.” – Katastrophicfox

“They are built nice and very sturdy! A great size, comfortable to carry down my stairs to the laundry room, and collapsible while not in use. The fact that I can actually save even more space when they are not in use and collapse them down to store is pure genius!’ – JenHarris

Once you grab one set, odds are you’ll find that you could use another, and right now, you can grab four bins for the normal price of one set. Affordable, sturdy, small-space-friendly, and multi-functional — what more could you ask for?
