What does “Kid Friendly” Closet Organization Mean?

While this may have different meanings for different people, it’s important for me that my kids help with chores. I organize the kids’ closets so they can put away their own clean clothing, put dirty clothing in the laundry bin, and so they can dress themselves in seasonally appropriate clothes.

This means the kids need to be able to reach the clothing they need and it needs to be EASY for them to put away. We use bins that they can throw their clothing in or fold, if they chose. All pants go in one bin, all short sleeve shirts go in one bin, shorts and bathing suits go in another bin, etc.
