You put the dishes Where?

In my recent quest to be a better homemaker and training up my daughters to be keepers of their own homes one day I have been doing more 'projects' than normal, mostly organizing, sorting, and purging many things that clutter up the house.

One organizing change I made was to move our dishes to a lower cupboard where our girls can reach without a stool or a chair. This is for two reasons: 1) The girls can unload 90% of the dishwasher contents into their proper home instead of making stacks on the counter top with most of the dishes. 2) The girls can set the table independently. The sacrifice I am making, of course, is to bend down low every time I need a dish, but it's an easy enough change to make and worth the benefit of better training my daughters.

Here's how the new cupboards look:
