I have used du -sh * in the past for listing the sizes of the subdirectories and files under the current directory. The same effect (of listing files too) can be achieved with the given --max-depth argument by adding --all also (du -s --all --max-depth=1), but we are lazy and less typing is better, isn't it? :)

Make it an alias then!

alias dum='du --max-depth=1'
alias duma='dum -a'
