How do you stay organized?

New to my Jayco and trying to figure out a system to stay less cluttered and messy inside. What do you do to keep organized and where do you put the dirty clothes?

I have under queen bed storage, under the dinette storage, bathroom linen storage and lots of upper cabinets in kitchen area. I have no idea how to store things to make life easy in the camper. Help!

Thanks!

We use a large bag under the queen bed storage for dirty clothes. We use a lot of plastic containers with lids of various sizes for all kinds of storage. Small ones stack up in cupboards. Large ones hold lots of things under the pass-through and under bunk storage. We use baskets and caddy's for silverware and stuff like that. Everything is set up so we can quickly take it out of the trailer to a picnic table at meal time, or into the house when unpacking, etc. Most of it, we developed over several outings - we keep a little notepad in the top drawer (junk drawer) and jot down improvements to make before the next trip...

This is what we use for added storage.

We used to cram a laundry basket between the bed and wall which worked okay for dirty cloths. Under bed storage is okay too.

When travelling/on the road, we have a laundry bag that rides in the tub.
When at the site, the laundry bag goes in the big wardrobe in the bathroom.
With a small TT, everything has to be in its place and dealt with promptly.
Example: The dishes get done immediately after eating, they don't pile up in the sink. Clothes, books, games, etc. get put away in their place when done.

Gotta agree with dewey and gone campin....plastic totes, laundry bag. never leave things laying around after use. Wash and dry dishes, put away shoes, games etc...
Camping is supposed to be fun not cluttered.
Many of us take too much stuff along on a trip in case we may need it...HAHAHA...my DW laughs at me cuz I tend to over pack...but I have a plastic bin for everything.:-)

Where do you keep all the totes? I have minimum floor space in my 22' TT. We do't even really have room for shoes so we aren't tripping on them.

When we get to the site everything is unpacked leaving empty totes that stack inside each other. I usually then put them in my vehicle.

Me and my wife don't have problems with junk sitting around but when the twenty something kids come down the camper looks like a bomb went off inside

The nice thing about totes is they are waterproof.
If you have things you don't need right away, they can go in the back of the pickup. We have a tonneau cover so that helps too.

Come to think of it, your dirty laundry can go in a tote and in the back of the pickup too!
