How To | January 15, 2016
It’s the time of year to start on reorganization and decluttering projects. In this era of digital music and online movies, we tend to forget about digital storage media, such as the CDs, DVDs and even VHS tapes we may have in our homes. Media collections can easily become unwieldy depending on the volume of discs you own. Therefore, it’s a great idea to include these items in your re-organization “to-do” lists. If you’re looking for CD and DVD storage ideas, we’ve listed a couple of good ways to organize your collection.
CD and DVD collections can vary from a few discs to very large collections. There are dozens of different CD or DVD storage solutions for the home from DIY shelving systems to store-bought binders, CD storage boxes or towers. CD and DVD storage ideas will depend on the amount of available space in the home for storage and if you are storing them in or out of the CD or DVD cases.
If you plan on using self storage for CDs and DVDs, take some special steps prior to storing media such as books, magazines, newspapers, CDs DVDs in a storage unit. CDs and DVDs should be properly packed before placing in storage. If CDs/DVDs are stored in binders, pack two to three in a box and fill the rest of the box with filler material. CDs/DVDs that are stored in their cases will need more boxes. Don’t forget to label the storage boxes with the contents and keep an inventory list of what you have stored.
A storage unit is a great place to store household storage items, including music and movie collections, that you no longer have room in your house to store. ezStorage has a variety of climate and non-climate controlled storage units from 5×5 to 10×30 that are perfect for storing these types of collections.
