We used to tent camp before we got our TC. It was always difficult to get things back together neatly.

I saw the smartest thing this weekend. These folks had laid out a tarp and placed all their containers on it, so that they could sort and put everything back in it's place.

Now why didn't I think of that?!!!

When backpacking, I always try to place items back in the pack immediately. Otherwise, I have the exact same problem. When car camping, everything gets thrown wherever it fits until we get back home. Our MH doesn't have a lot of storage, and almost no exterior storage so we are still doing the "shove it wherever it will fit for now" thing.

Packing and repacking is always a PITA, especially if you’re traveling rather than camping, so anything that helps organize is a big plus. I used a little different approach. I designed and built two grub boxes that would easily fit in the back of my ’73 Bronco. One held my stove, lantern, fuel, and all cooking and eating utensils. The lid folded down into a cooking surface, it had a drawer for silverware, and four detachable legs to elevate it to a comfortable height. The other was simpler and just had compartments to hold the rest of my gear, excluding of course my tent and sleeping bags. That was a major upgrade in convenience for me, but it was still a pain if I was moving every day. When I got my PU I found it was far preferable for traveling, though not so much for camping.
