As my athletic endeavors have increased so has my collection of fitness specific clothing. And we finally reached the point where the clothing has far exceeded the capacity of the bureau that had been designated for these items. So we started storing the overflow in a plastic container, which had to be covered with a sheet to prevent our cat from using my t-shirts as a kitty bed.
According to Heather from Brooks, my wardrobe storage issues are one of constant debate amongst her running friends and colleagues.
This weekend I was determined the clean up my act, and figure out a new solution. In part because I also need to start putting away the winter clothing and I needed the container. And taking a cue from Asha and Christina of Minimalist Parenting, I was also determined to stay focused on this one task and not get distracted by all the other things that need to be organized.
The drawers and the container. As you can see, we can’t even get the drawers closed.
The pile of clothing, ready to be sorted and folded.
The sport “junk drawer.”
The under bed boxes from The Container Store which will be helping.
Discovered in the pile – Performance cycling pants made in the USA? We believe these may be circa late 1980′s, and now will be handed down to our son. (Now do you understand why I say my husband is a packrat?)
The most used items were folded and returned to the drawers.
Bicycle jerseys and shorts (which are impossible to fold) go under the bed, along with some of the less frequently used items (like my triathlon suit).
The junk drawer is organized – and I’m astounded that I even own some of these items!
