Hello! How’s it going over there?
Sunday is the first day of Fall and with the new season comes cooler weather and a need to pack up the summer gear. Yes, SoCal is still HOTHOTHOT!
But, I do still need to unpack my winter running gear and put away some of my summer stuff. Crisp mornings will show up before I know it and I put my long sleeves and gloves and stuff away a few months back.
That got me thinking about organizing my running gear – especially because I have a TON of it! I’m working with Fab on this post to bring you ideas on organizing your workout / running gear. They offer free shipping, free returns and a smile guarantee. The list below includes items that can help organize your stuff from their site along with my tips and tricks to ‘get it together’.
How to organize your workout gear
First – put away the things you aren’t going to use for a few months. I pack my winter gear in vacuum bags since I keep them in the attic and it’s gross and not temperature controlled up there.
Vacuum Bags for out of season gear
My drawers are stuffed with sports bras – I really do think it’s the most important part of running clothing! So, I need to get this bra and chonie organizer
Speaking of sports bras – you should lay them out or hang dry instead of putting them in the drier. I use a few hooks I have above my washer, but that doesn’t offer enough space. I like this Accordion Drying Rack to get the job done!
If you have more room to work with this White Hanger is great too.
I would also use this if they were little runners – Coat Rack
A runner has a very special, intimate relationship with their shoes. And since you are supposed to switch them out every 500 miles or less we often have several pairs lying around.
Also – I have different types of shoes for long runs, short runs and walking. I have a shoe organizer on the bottom of the living room closet for my shoes.
This hanging Shoe organizer is another good option.
My best tip is to keep your electronics and other ‘must haves’ in one place so they are easy to find. This way you can grab your watch, glasses, music and safety ID and get out the door without excuses. I use this plastic bin from Target…
But, I love this super cute storage cube! (This is also a great item to use for your pet’s gear and keep near the door for walks/toys.)
And because this is my favorite tip and I love it, I am going to give one RER reader that adorable paisley storage cube to organize your gear!
