Hey! I was curious if any of you knew a way to organize a big bag full of stuff with having a bunch of bags/pouches inside. Or is there a cheap bag that already organizes? I'm kind of thinking in the lines of a drawstring bag and how to organize it. Any ideas? thanks!

You can get drop in purse organizers like this one Bernard featured on the mother's day buying guide. It looks pretty gender neutral.

Or there are the Grid-It boards like these

I really dig Timbuk2 messenger bags.  They have just enough organization to be helpful. You'll frequently find one of their laptop commuter bags on closeout somewhere for $35ish, like this one

I agree with you about the timbuk2 bags.  if you have a timbuk2 store near you they often have bags on sale in the store so you can get some hands on reshearch.

Is there any devise that will shock me if I don't put things back as the belong?
I would buy it with overnight shipping.

It's not pretty, but they are cheap. Ziplock bags, all sizes. I prefer the freezer bags but they don't make them smaller than a quart (that I have found). I have a spare change of clothes, under the seat of my car in a 2 gallon freezer bag. I have a 1 gallon bag with a scarf, gloves, and a warm hat in my EDC bag. Both have had all the air squeezed out. I have a thousand quart size bags with pens, chargers and cables, etc. I have a sandwich bag with instant coffee, tea, sugar and creamer (in a straw that has been melted into a single use container).I have a snack size bag with change that I accumulate daily.

 

They keep things separate. They keep dry things dry and wet things away from dry things.

 

I have a quart sized freezer bag that I turned into a measuring cup; by putting 6 oz of water in it and marking it with a sharpie so I don't dilute my instant coffee with too much water. I could do the same with a cup, 2 cups, whatever I need.

Sounds like you want to pack modular. One of the brands in the video is GORUCK and their field pockets.
