    Post a schedule of sorts

    I'm trying to keep to a schedule of sorts.

    What does "of sorts” mean in this sentence?

    Default Re: a schedule of sorts

    'Of sorts' means of a certain kind or type.

    We often use this to talk about something which we don't consider to
    be very good but which will be good enough for our purposes.
