Woa, Richard, 'squared away!'.. reminds me of the layout inspections in the military. Which is good, Im not critisizing your method since I still do these layout inspections myself. Back then everything was laid out on a poncho in a particular location and order. Socks "smiles up" (ask if you want to know), etc..
Now, I use the floor of my tatami room, and believe it or not, layout my clothing in the same order its worn, like a little merino and down scarecrow laying on the floor, except each item is rolled up; hats on top, then /gaiters/tops/pants/socks/shoes, gloves on the side. Layers are at the same height, but arranged horizontally base/insulation/shell. Next to this motivated scarecrow is my campsite, also arranged like the actual campsite, with tent, kitchen/stove in front of it, food bag, accessories bag, hygeine bag, pack lid(maps gps, etc..) (again everything packed up of course. It all takes up about one jo* Then I tick off the items on my checklist to make sure I didn't forget anything, but with this layout method, its pretty hard to forget anything.
Strange, I know.. maybe a picture is better; Ill post one next time I do this.
