Is there a method to sort My Places on Google Maps? 
I often add up to 50 places for a planned trip and would love to have some way to easily look the restaurants (or other businesses) I've saved.  It's not easy because many places/businesses are not named in a way that describes exactly what they are - and if I've starred them months before, I forget what they are!  If there's not a folder sort system, is there at least a method to sort alphabetically?  I will remember the name of a place, but can't find it in the long list.
This becomes more of a problem because I often plan 4-5 trips at a time and would like to add My Places in advance.  Because of the limitations, I'm now writing these all down in a book, and then adding the next trip when I delete all the current existing entries.
Any advice/guidance about methods to sort/keep track of multiple "my places"?

You could sort the items on the left panel by dragging and dropping each element while in editing mode.

A followup question - is there a way for My Places to be listed in order of how close they are to where I am?

No, there is now way to sort the custom maps except by the way provided by Google, date of last edition.

Sure would be nice if it there were several sort options (alphabetically, by pin type, by time added)
