Well I have about 3 years' worth of tri crap I am finally sorting out. Pathetic I know. I had one milk crate each for the S/B/R stuff. Well then there is a lake swim bag (body glide, binoculars, some club safety gear, extra goggles and caps for members who need them), a yoga bag sometimes, a pool bag. Oh and another pool bag for another pool where I have to bring my own shamppo and towels and some forms for swimmers to sign). THEN the occasional need to pack a race bag, or a Century ride bag. You know the dental floss that is just right for tying your shoes to the skewers. Not just ANY floss will do!
Plus an area in garage for the helmet, shoes, saddle bag etc. Fuel in pantry, water bottles in one part of cupboard. And --HORRORS-- some stuff could go in more than one bag/location! ;-)
OCD coupled with analysis-paralysis and procrastination!!
This is driving me NUTS! I really want a system to keep up with! Be able to grab my ___ bag and head out the door. I am thinking of duplicate shampoos bottles, sunscreen, body glide etc. And of course I need only one SWIMMING bag. Duh.
What are you all doing to (1) organize and (2) stay on top of that system?? I am throwing out stuff too-- old yucky swim caps (some sentimental value but I was ruthless), but what about the weird crap like hand warmer thingies you put in your gloves, the arm and leg warmers... Gee I may need a WINTER running crate now! J/K ("simplify" dammit!)
And the weird mounting doohickeys that came with my aero botttle that I don't need, and the orphaned HRM chest strap with no wrist receiver. Gee what weird weird landfill crap I am creating. And which friggin' electronic device does THIS battery go to??
Just so you know I am pissin' away time on ST rather than going back to finish the half-done job of sorting out this pile o' tri-crap on my bed!
Okay back to my task now, I swear, but maybe I'll check email first. LOL
