It is true, we live in an age where DVD’s and CD’s are just hanging in there. No doubt when our kids are older, they will be a thing of the past.
But for now, even if you haven’t brought any for a while, what’s the bet, you have a tonne of them taking up cupboard space? Or even more to the point.. after Christmas and those long summer holidays, perhaps you have a stack of them that haven’t quite gotten around to tidying up.
I have a great storage solution, one that I implemented about 8 years ago and it really does work a treat. I have also saved myself an incredible amount of storage space.
Buy a big (or very big) DVD storage folder. When purchasing, make sure its strong enough to hold all of your DVD’s without falling apart. It might be worth going mid-range price here. (I brought ours in China).
Remove each of your DVD’s from their covers and put them into the folder. You may decide to divide them into sections.. I tend to have older kids ones starting from the front, and baby ones starting from the back page.. (I have a second folder for hubby and my movies).
Chuck all your covers into the recycling bin. JOB DONE! Space reclaimed.
*I have a small portable CD case that carries about 5-10 discs for when we are travelling.
I really love it when we have a movie night now, the kids can easily pull out the folder and choose a movie without having to pull out all the cases and make a mess everywhere.
