In giving up our old coffee table, we lost some media storage space. We’d slap ourselves on the wrists, but we were blinded by going round and gaining those few extra inches of floor space.
So out with the old it was, and in with the new. And suddenly we had over two hundred DVDs with no place to live. Thinking this was the perfect opportunity to get those space eaters in to a more manageable media book, I convinced my man it would make for easier title browsing. (This is the part where I let him think it over for probably too long, then order a Case Logic from Amazon as soon as he gives the green light.)
But giving up all those cases was harder than I thought. As eager as I was to purge, I’ll admit that those pesky special edition covers had me thinking twice. Now this is where Scott could have been all I told you so, but lucky girl that I am, he bit his tongue and we compromised. We kept only the fancy schmancy cases (everything from those embossed graphics to the cheesy holograms) and recycled the rest. We tucked them in a storage bin and hid them away in our basement storage unit (probably only to toss ’em down the road, I’m sure).
This got us thinking. How does the rest of this great, big world store their non-digital media? Did we commit the ultimate collector’s sin? Or perhaps you agree with this space saving solution? Just please don’t tell us you still have VHS tapes under the bed – that’s a whole ‘nother ball of wax, my friend.
