For a while I’ve wanting to update my DVD storage. Over the past 9 or so years we have been building our collection but it was getting out of hand with a lot that we didn’t really like and probably would never watch again. We bought a lot of movies instead of watching them in the theater (generally the price of the DVD was less than the price of one movie ticket); I got a lot when Blockbuster would have clearance on their previously viewed movies. Here were our movies before:

I found these DVD sleeves that keep the cover intact yet allow 8 movies to fit in the same space as a standard DVD. It was exactly what I needed so I bought a few packs and got started.
I learned that got a lot worse before it gets better. The cases in the box are all the empty cases and the ones piled up are all the moves that we are going to get rid of. There are about 60 DVDs that we are getting rid of; I’m thinking of possibly saving up stuff for the next few months and having a garage sale but have to figure out where to store it in the mean time.
I LOVE these baskets that are currently at Target. They have them in teal, lime, white and black. I have bought a bunch of the teal ones to put throughout the house. The DVDs fit perfectly inside and each easily holds 40 DVDs.

I also made some labels for each basket (yes the DVDs are alphabetical in the baskets). There is going to be a learning curve for printing these labels perfectly. When they printed each label was a little off and so they weren’t always centered on the label. I made some to label stuff in my couponing stockpile as well, but that is for another post :)
