What Houzz contributors are saying:
Create a fun wardrobeEnsure that clothes are stored at a height accessible to children, so they can take responsibility for dressing themselves. Provide a laundry basket in the place where your child gets undressed, whether that’s in the bathroom or bedroom. Having accessible wardrobes and a nearby washing bin will get them in the habit of putting dirty clothes in the basket to be washed, and of storing clean clothes for next time.At the beginning of each season, assess what still fits your child. Wash and pack away anything you’ll keep for a younger one. Label the box with the size of the garments, so you can readily see what’s inside. Alternatively, find a friend or family member you can pass things on to. Don’t forget that charities will recycle worn clothes if they’re not fit for sale, so even pieces that are damaged can be utilised.
