2nd Annual Clutter Challenge Week 2 April 14, 2016

Media Management

DVDs, CDs, vinyl….dare we even say cassette tapes? If you’re anything like us, over the years you may have acculmulated an extensive media library. However, with the advent of streaming music and video, our CD and DVD collections have become a little obsolete – not to mention bulky and cumbersome.

Over the years, the CMFTO team has packed boxes and boxes of media for our clients as they prepare to move. Now that we have digital storage options, we no longer need to hold onto the hard copy. That being said, we also understand that many people are reluctant to give up their original CDs and DVDs.

So, what’s the solution?

Well, at CMFTO we have found that we can accommodate much more when we change the way we store our collections. If you’re not ready to load all your music, for example, on a cloud device or local platform, you can drastically improve your storage by removing them from their cases and transferring them to a binder system.

Going from cluttered shelves of several hundred CDs to one shelf with 5 binders is a practical solution for the audiophile in all of us.

DVDs are slightly different, but the same method can be applied. To begin with, it’s not practical (yet) to upload and store DVDs digitally. Therefore, it’s even more important to create a DVD storage system that meets your needs, and doesn’t take up unnecessary space in your home.

The CMFTO team LOVES the idea of cataloging our DVD system using plastic sleeves and storage boxes. Not only can you easily sort your collection – either alphabetically or by genre – but it takes up only one-tenth the amount of space it did previously when the DVDs were kept in their cases. Win-win!

An entire bookshelf becomes two small boxes. It takes a little bit of organization, and it’s a great project for the whole family. You could even create an assembly line, of sorts, to facilitate the transfer.

No more endless shelves of DVDs and CDs taking up room in your house. With these systems, you can now you have clean, organized, and properly stored media for everyone to enjoy.

All my best,
