We finally did something about the overflowing DVDs. Yesterday, KC made me a present. He put together this new four-sided spinning DVD rack.
It’s surprisingly solid for something that came in two flat boxes, and it’s very adjustable. It holds about 475 DVDs, according to its writeup, which covers a bit more than half our collection. It’s nearly as tall as I am! We had a blast reorganizing and sorting things, and realizing what we had that we’d forgotten about (or wanted to watch again — the point of owning movies).
On the left side shown here, KC now has one whole side for his music and concert DVDs. The right side is my classic film collection (which is anything from before I was born — isn’t that how everyone defines “old movie”?). I was surprised I had so much space, with half a side left for expansion. We’ve also grouped all the comic book-related stuff on one side, with superhero movies (plus Howard the Duck and Josie and the Pussycats) and cartoons. The fourth side will be other animation, I think.
I know I can be a bit obsessive about organizing things sometimes, but boy, this was fun.
