Absolutely magnificent collection! But I can't help notice that all those cable seem to be a bit tangled.
It might wise to try and tidy them up a bit. I'm sure they are perfectly safe but I'm always paranoid about electrical fires starting from behind my TV.

A look back at my humble beginings. My collection of 13 DVDs and a bunch of VHS tapes.

It's a bit daft, but I find it highly enjoyable. If you can identify with the Aussies' perspective on Americans in general and the era of the moon landing in particular, you'll love it.

It doesn't take all that much creativity.  Just get rid of all the movies you've watched but didn't like enough to watch twice, and stop purchasing DVDs at a rate faster than you can watch them.

Or, you could just defer purchasing DVDs for a week or two and build a bigger house with the savings.

Not here.  Because all I'd get to watch is snow.

Here are 2 pictures which house most of my DVDs/BRDs. About 20 TV shows are in 2 other areas of the house because they are in use by other family members at the moment.

The shelves are home made and are continuous from one end to the other, so as discs are added or subtracted, you only have to move from one end of a shelf to another. They are also free standing with 1 screw keeping them attached to the wall so they can be moved when necessary. They are put together with screws making it possible to disassemble and reassemble without messing them up.

Picture 1 is 10 10-foot shelves and Picture 2 is 10 5-foot shelves. On the floor behind Lara are enough materials to build 10 12-foot shelves which I will have to build sometime next year, I expect. What is already built and the materials on the floor equal about $800.00 worth.

Or, alternatively, if you're short of space you could get yourself one or more of those cases DJs use, fill it with discs and put the keep cases and covers in storage.

This is about as wide a shot as I could take given that my rec room is rather narrow to begin with. This is the bulk of the collection but I have more in the exercise/toy room as well as you'll see in the later pictures.

These first 3 shelving units are the movies that I have watched and are filed in alphabetic order. The 4th unit on the far right is the first shelf of unwatched movies.

You'll notice on the second shelf on the 4th unit has a movie sticking out sideways. I do that with the case of any movie that I have out on loan to friends or family so I remember which ones I need to get back.

Here is my new TV. Connected to it is my up-converting DVD player, my Bell satellite receiver, an Xbox, an Xbox360, a PS1, a PS2, a Nintendo Gamecube and my Nintendo Wii. (I've since added a 1000 watt Samsung stereo surround sound!)

This is unit #2 of unwatched movies. It is shorter than the other units which pretty much go right up to the drop ceiling.

Shelving unit #3 of unwatched dvds. You can faintly make out on the outer right edge of each shelf a small white sticker which is a running number of my unwatched movies which increases with every single shelf. I then use my random number generator to choose which movie I will watch.

That's just the lower half of the same unit.

These two units of unwatched movies, numbers 4 & 5, are just small ones I picked up for this space as there is a window above them.

#6 and the last unit of unwatched movies in this room. Total number of unwatched movies in this room.... 2957. I'm unsure of the exact amount of watched movies.

Now we are getting into the exercise room. The unit to the left of the blurays and the shelf above are all movies that are sequels that I have not watched yet. When I randomly select a movie for which there is a sequel I will come here, pull the next sequel in the series and put it in the place of the one that I just picked.

The unit on the right is my 'Video Vault' unit full of all my trade bait. There is a mixture of blurays, dvds, games and music cds here. It's hard to tell from the glare but on top of the stack of blurays is the brand new Bluray of Inglourious Basterds, still up for grabs! (I've since started keeping the blurays and have tripled the amount shown on that shelf. Due to a lack of space I've started putting my blurays into binders and boxing up the cases...

This pic is of the upper half of the two units I use to store TV seasons and series that I have not watched yet. It's not very well organized yet. Once a tv season has been watched it gets filed with the regular movies in alpha order back in the rec room.

Lower half of the same two units. (I've since condensed both these units into the one on the right, putting the TV series two rows deep. It's jammed packed. I now use the unit on the left for more regular dvds... it's now right full too, again two rows deep.

This is the last shelving unit I have for unwatched movies. I ran out of shelving space in the rec room and so now I put each weeks acquisitions onto here. I don't have these shelves numbered so my range of numbers for selecting a movie starts at 1 and ends at 2957. Whenever a movie is picked, watched and filed, I bring a movie into the rec room from this shelf, grabbing from the upper right pile on the top shelf until that pile is gone. I then slide all the piles over and up.  (I now have my movies sitting on here sideways, two rows deep. By doing it this way I have bought myself enough space for a few more months worth of purchases. After that I have to get even more creative.

This is the pile of stuff I picked up this past week both bought and through trades. It still has to be added to my DVD Profiler database and then put onto the shelf in the picture above. (Actually an old picture but it's not abnormal for me to pick up that many movies in a given week.)

Ok heres mine. Currently in the process of changing everything, so its more like a status report

Currently i have a book shelve in the hall. But i'm in the process of getting rid of it for few reasons. For one its a magnet for stuff i haven't yet got a place for (e.g. that broken lamp, box for the new lamp and 2 Smoke detectors aren't there for decoration!). Two being that i had to move the cat litter boxes out of the bathroom, cause everytime i took a shower i had to vacuum clean the whole room (bentonite from cat litter + water equals to a huge mess). Already emtied 4 bottom shelves to make room for the cat litter boxes:


My first step is to make 3 boxes that will slide under the bed. Each holding approx 240 dvd's. Since their under the bed, i didn't intend them to be pretty (so the outstanding carpenter work was just an accident ). Assembling 2 of them:




One finished one, filled with all my anime dvd's (the 4 emtied shelves from the hall). I might actually do some fine tuning to that one, after i get the other two finished.


Next step would be to find a place for the rest ~300 DVD's, and make a cabinet that will hide the cat litter boxes. Style wise i've been thinking of something like this.

One of the reasons i got into this mess:
