When I wind a warp, I will count out five ends at the bottom of the warping board and then slide them aside, I do this five times. I now have five bundles of five, so that is fifty ends.
In this photo I have done this twice and put the 100 ends in a looper. I now have three bundles of five (30 ends) and have counted out 5 more (10 ends). So I have a total of 40 ends. When I finish this count of fifty, I will put them in the looper too. Giving me 150 ends.
I learned this way of counting from my good friend and weaving teacher Jeff R. It works for me!
