Around the House

Want to know a secret about me? I hate wasting space.

Actually, I take that back.  I hate wasting space on things that aren’t pretty and/or functional.

So when I saw this idea about how to condense a mountain of dvd’s, I knew some all Bluerays, CDs, and DVD’s in our house were about to get a new home.  Thanks for agreeing to let me do this, G.

I found a decorative shoebox at Christmas Tree Shop for $2.50 {fun fact, Christmas Tree Shop is actually a pretty great store and interestingly enough, does not sell Christmas Trees} and picked up 2 packs of 50 cd/dvd sleeves at Staples for $5 each.

After putting each disc in its sleeve {making sure the dvd was facing out so you could see the label}, I then alphabetized them, and made some dividers to make it quicker to find.  I took a few minutes to create a little catalog to tape inside the box too, which makes picking a movie easier than thumbing through the discs.

Now our Blueray/CD/DVD collection sits secretly on a shelf on our console.

Well, I guess maybe not secretly since I’m writing about it here.

Do you have a mountain of DVD’s in your house too?

  1. Very cute! I tried a couple of different things for ours (which is a lot with two little girls and a mama who love Disney movies) but not quite as pretty. I may have to try this one :).

    1. Great question, Amanda! Right now they are sitting in a moving box in our attic. If we ever move and they haven’t been touched, they’re going in the trash! 🙂

    1. Hey Eugenia! They got moved to the attic temporarily to make sure we didn’t have any organizational regret 🙂 You’ll be happy to know that after not accessing them for a couple of months they were discarded!
