And then, the DVDs took over. It got real up in here, people.
I bought a ginormous cabinet made for holding DVDs. And filled it. And DVDs spilled out into a bookcase. And filled it.
I told you it got real.
I read on another blog, Simply Organized, that she used these little plastic sleeves to organize her DVDs. I checked my local Target store and found some and then they stopped stocking them. So I ran over to Amazon.com (so to speak) and bought some. They have free shipping for orders of $25, so I would buy a couple of packages at a time to defray some of the initial investment.
So, here are three Dollar Tree bins filled with movies. This isn't all of our movies, just what would fit in the bins.
Now, let's do a space comparison here. This is all of those movies, taken out of their case and put into a sleeve.
Seventy-five movies, that barely fit into three of these bins, now fit easily (with room to spare) in one bin. I was totally sold. I bought enough sleeves for our movies and Wii/Xbox games as well. Now, I have one shelf of movies:
I can't even tell you how much space this saves us. The Wii games alone allowed me to empty out one drawer and use it for candleholders. Because I have lots of those. And as far as I know, no one has made a sleeve for those yet.
You've gotta love making room where you thought there was none. Success.
