Have CD’s become obsolete? Have they gone the way of floppy disks and VHS tapes? What about owning DVD’s in the age of Redbox and Netflix? And what should you do with your collection?
First off, music is so much more readily available today than it has ever been before. You can upload your favorite albums into itunes or find that particular song by Justin Timberlake on Pandora, Spotify or YouTube. Look through your CD’s, if you still want to keep all of them, toss the cases into the recycling bin and just keep the disks in a binder, and then store the binder in the top of a closet or the basement somewhere.
DVD’s and Blu-rays
It is much more expensive and time consuming to upload movies onto your computer, so keeping your movie collection makes more sense. There are a few ways to store these so that they are organized and easily accessible. First, if you want to ditch the cases, get another dis binder and put them in there. Think about putting in some reasonable order, like TV shows together, dramas together, cartoons together. If you want to keep the cases, pick up some media bins. Put all of the movies facing in the same direction and into categories. This will make it much easier to track down what you want to watch.
Video Game Disks
Unless you are a real gamer, the few video games you have could be easily stored in a bin with your controllers in a traveling CD case.
Good luck getting your disks in a box!
