Pants, Leggings, and Skirts
As you can see, these aren't unattainable, pristinely folded, expertly aligned sets of colour-coordinated clothing straight out of some magazine ad. These are drawers of readily accessible clothes presented in a functional way for parents and kiddos alike.
And here are the immediate benefits I noticed:
- My daughter was able to get something out of her dresser without unwittingly dislodging any other garment.
- She wore more of her clothes. Before, she'd often rewear the same shirts that were always visible, but because this method allowed her to see every item in one glance, my out-of-sight-out-of-mind toddler had more options available to her.
- She was able to help with the laundry! One of her "chores" has long been to put her folded clothes into her drawers, and until Marie, I sacrificed tidiness for fostering her independence. But with the vertical style, it's easier for her to put clothes away by finding open slots and jamming the clothes in them.
