In a perfect world I would hire a company to design and set up a walk in closet for me. I live in an old apartment and, well, it won’t be ideal anyway. The owner will rehab this place once I move out.
Isn’t this gorgeous?
So that leaves me with being creative to organize not only my work stuff but also my running gear. Sadly I do not store everything in my bedroom but in various places in the apartment. My bedroom isn’t big but luckily I have a decent size closet.
➡️ My running shoes are in an armoire closet/chest drawer I inherited from my mother when she moved. It is in the back porch. I used to have 6 new pairs but now I have 2 pairs.
➡️ My favorite running shorts are the Oiselle long rogas. I have over 30 pairs. Yes, I love them. Those shorts are also there.
➡️ Sports bras and socks go in a plastic storage cart and organizer.
➡️ Pants and long sleeve tops go in the closet.
➡️ Tops go in a dresser drawer in my room.
➡️ Garmin and headphones are in a fruit stand in the kitchen. We use it to store everything else except fruit.
Each night I gather everything I need and leave it in the kitchen. My bedroom is next to it and it makes it easy to grab it all in the morning and get ready.
It may not be ideal but this system works for me. Cannot wait to organize it better once I have a house and more room!
