```Depending on the different structure of list you might face, this might
prove to be too ad-hoc, but you can have it while waiting for the good

listthing = {{{1, 2}, {1, 2}, {1, 1}}, {{1, 1}, {1, 1}, {1, 2}}, {{1, 2},
{2,
2}, {1, 2}}, {{2, 2}, {1, 2}, {2, 2}}, {{1, 1}, {1, 2}, {1, 2}}, {{1,
2}, {2, 2}, {2, 2}}};
Dimensions[%]

{6, 3, 2}

Map[Sort[#] &, listthing, Dimensions[listthing][[3]]]

This should work for other types of lists:

Map[Sort[#] &, listthing, Min[Dimensions[listthing]] ]

It is by no means a general solution of course.

Best,

me
