It's not often that a mom learns organizational tips from her sons, but I've learned a few from mine. Being in the military, my sons have learned to be all about efficiency. One interesting way they do this is by rolling things up.
They wear the same thing to work everyday (a uniform) so they make "skivvy rolls" to save time getting ready. These consist of underwear, socks, and an undershirt all rolled together. That way they just grab a roll and their uniforms and they are ready to hit the door in 10 minutes flat (of course it helps not having enough hair to comb). :) This is a great way to pack too. You would be amazed at how much they can fit into a carry on bag, plus it keeps things from getting so wrinkled.
I have a drawer in my kitchen chock full of dishtowels. I have lots and lots of them and it's not unusual for me to use 6 or more each day as I'm cooking and washing dishes. I have always had them folded up in the drawer which quickly became a mess as I pulled towels out and then washed them and put them back in. I finally thought to roll them up like the boys roll their things up. It works SO well! I can actually close the drawer now without one falling out. Now, why didn't I think of this years ago?
