Equating the cost of DVDs to a car:
The monthly payment on a 1966 Corvette Stingray, I bought about this time of the year in 1965 taking account for inflation id about what I've spent on DVDs per month for the last ten years or so..
Corvette Stingray cost $5600 and today's Corvette is around $56,000, but I'm talking about the monthly payments, $90 to $900.

My 1990 Ford F1500 Super Cab has 2,00 miles on it Back then in the '60 and 70's it was fun to go places.

I could hike the Grand Canyon any time I wanted to. Set up my camp, come back a week later and nobody had bothered it  I could leave my mother's house in K.C., MO. after breakfast and be in my uncle house in Colorado Springs, CO. for diner.

Today the lakes are crowded, no leisurely fishing places. Clear across the USA people today have no manners, no consideration for other people or their property. It's rush. rush, shove, shove, greed, greed.

Is it any wonder that would rather see the world vicariously through DVDs, more then one news cast per day is too much.

I'm an amateur even though I'm up to almost 5,000 DVDs. Some people on this forum own over 11,500 of them!

I own a several thousand vinyl records and hard cover books in addition to my DVDs. The way I store them was to cover every wall with custom built floor to ceiling shelving units in my living room.

The bottom shelves are large enough to hold the vinyl. The rest of the shelves hold the books in the rear and the DVDs in front.

I keep almost everything alphabetized with rare exceptions. For example I keep Live Free or Die Hard with my Die Hard collection.

I like being able to see everything and know where something is when I want it. My 6 year old nephew calls my living room "DVD heaven"!

edit: Where's your collection? I was curious about what you own and its not posted. If you don't mind changing the settings, I'd be interested in what you own.

Just about to join the club.

As for the question about storage, I am moving from a room surrounded in storage racks to likely waterproof containers ( Rubbermaid type ) for most regular DVDs, although BluRay/HD-DVD's will remain on racks.  This is only possible because I am transferring all my DVD's on to a media server.  I've got 6.25 TB of protected space of which 5.15TB is in use , with about half my collection on it.  It's a multi-month job moving from DVD to Hard drive, but sure is convenient to sit in my livingroom and be able to access any DVD with a few clicks.

2010 in 2010!

Still growing... I put DVDs that are covered by Blu-ray in binders (as well as DVDs with no inserts in the cases and those from the miserable snappers), no cases. Each binder can hold as many as 256 discs, but having 6 binders, and expecing to gain more, I only put three discs on each four-disc page, and leave ten or so blank pages between each letter. The rest are stored in a number of places (in their cases, box sets, slip cases, digipaks, whatever): all pre-sound era films are in one drawer of a Can-Am cabinet (two-three drawer cabinets where the other five drawers have my CD collection) in my living room; the DVD/Blu-ray collection (alphabetically) from the numbers, the As, Bs, Cs and the start of the Ds are on custom made shelves in my library; the rest of the Ds through the start of the Rs are on built-in shelves in a closet in that library (behind them are my LP collection, and the few VHS tapes I haven't found or bought DVDs to replace yet); the rest of the Rs through the start of the Ws are on two store-bought DVD shelving units still in that closet; the rest of the Ws through the Zs are on two small store-bought shelves on top of the built-in shelves (in the window) of the library.

Only the SF collection and the mystery (book) collections are in the library, filling it. Our autographed books are on shelves in our bedroom, professional books in the office, the Library of America and antique books in custom shelves in the dining room, books about comics books (with file cabinets for the comics themselves) and about film studies in a closet where I store my guitars, basses, amplifiers and PA system under the stairs, and general lit and non-fiction in boxes in the garage. We need a two-story library larger than the one in the film of My Fair Lady to fit the books we own.... then a library our size to fit the CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

I think I need a bigger house, with a warehouse as well as a garage...
If it wasn't for bad taste, I wouldn't have no taste at all.

I'm declaring myself now even if it's a day or two premature. With what I have on hand, plus duplicate copies, and what's inbound, I'm right around 2000.

http://www.invelos.com/dvdcollection.aspx/lasitter

The collection is heavily weighted towards drama, indie and foreign language films.  I've also tried to stock up on best picture nominees, 2009-1960, though this will be harder going forward with the Oscar's expansion back to 10 nominees for that category. Nothing from 2010 for a while until the prices are more reasonable.
