How large a laundry basket you need doesn’t just depend on how much laundry you need to do. Don’t forget that you need to be able to carry the basket when it’s full of clothes. If you have trouble carrying a full basket, then you should look at a wheeled hamper, which would allow you to transport large loads from room to room much more easily than a regular plastic basket.
Not much to say about this model – you can’t get simpler than this, I don’t think:

You may want to look for a hamper made of a plastic that is somewhat soft and thick. Plastic that is hard and thin tends to be brittle. In general, for this type of product, the old adage of “you get what you pay for” holds true. You can get very cheap baskets, but they are likely to break easily.
