It sounds like you want to always clone repositories to a single
directory. git clone doesn't have a configuration setting to do that,
but you can specify the directory you want to clone. For example:

  git clone https://github.com/git/git.git

would create a directory "git" under the current directory, but you
could also write the following:

  git clone https://github.com/git/git.git ~/checkouts/git

to create the repository in ~/checkouts/git. You can also do this:

  git -C ~/checkouts clone https://github.com/git/git.git

which will change to ~/checkouts and then perform the clone there. "-C"
says to change directory to the given location before running the
command; it must be specified before the "clone" command.

If you want to automate this, you can create an alias:

  git config --global alias.myclone '!f () { git -C ~/checkouts clone "$@"; };f'
  git myclone https://github.com/git/git.git

and then your alias will always clone to that directory.
