5 Ways to Organize your Running Gear

This is something I need help with (just ask my husband).

Organization is not my greatest skill. I'm working on it though and maybe I'll get some ideas through the Friday Five Link Up. I'm linking up at Eat, Run, Pray DC , Mar on the Run and You Signed up for What?!

I don't have five things, but I've talked about the three things that I use when running (clothes, shoes and gadgets) and how I currently organize them (which needs help).

1. Running Clothes Drawer
My running/workout clothes drawer started as just that, one drawer. However, after many races and lots of race t-shirts, I've now taken over two drawers with running stuff. The next time I get a chance to have time to organize my plan is to begin getting rid of workout clothes I don't wear anymore whether they are too small, too big or I haven't worn them for a long time. I have plenty of clothes like that.
It's not that bad. They're still in the drawers and the drawers do close.

2. Shoes
Right now, when I come in from a run, my shoes sit in the front hallway until the dry out a bit. Once they are dried out I put them in my gym bag since I'm trying to stick to a schedule and I'm not sure if it's going to be a day at the gym on the treadmill (if it rains) or a day outside. At least if I stick them back in my gym bag I know where they are when they are needed.

3. Running gadgets
This includes my watch and iPod. When I'm not running, they're on the dining room table. Need to find a better place for them but I know that on the dining room table I can find them easily. The charger for both sits on the counter (what I call my 'charging station') and I charge when necessary. Any ideas on storing these nicely would be appreciated!

Many chargers now use a micro-USB connector, meaning one charger can suffice for multiple gadgets
Ya, this is what mine is like. Maybe a little more tangled.

I think the biggest problem is that I'm a bit of a mess. I don't really know how to keep myself organized and my lack of time to get organized doesn't help either. I can't wait to see if there are some tips people have to keep it all together!
