Saving time with a laundry basket.

To save time and keep one focused on the task at hand, while picking up; instead of running things that are out of place up the steps or down the steps, I use a laundry basket to collect things that are out of place and need to find their way back.
For now, stick it all in a laundry basket to be distributed to its rightful place, LATER.
I use that for when there's alot, or bigger items. For less, I have a stair basket that sits on my steps covering 2 steps.
Place items in it and it has a handle so when you're ready to put things away, just scoop it up by the handle and off you go.
