The only thing I, personally, don't like is the folding of the covers in A5.

What do YOU do with the now empty cases?


It feels bad at first, especially with the good movies. At some point i'm going to cut the covers off of digipak's, thats going to be hard.

I was originally going to put them on sale with a 1e asking price. But i'll probably end up taking them to plastic recycling, if i can find a place that takes them.

Never thought i'd do it, but I finally got around to getting one of these. Have been trying to arrange it alphabetically, but that's become so tedious i'm just going to put anything in for the last 100 I have left to do. DVD cases are in cardboard boxes stored in the garage.

A collection of almost 2200 here. I have the same, or similar, case (1200 disk). I do it alphabetically. I can't imaging maintaining it otherwise. Initially I put about 600 disks in and used both sides of the sleeve. How I maintain this so it doesn't become overbearing is if I need to insert a disk, I just use a new sleeve with one disk and insert where it needs to go, leaving the back side of the sleeve empty. If there's already a sleeve in or near that space with an empty slot, I use that. 2-disk sets always go on the same sleeve, even if there are two sleeves next to each other with space. Movie covers and inserts, I take out of the cases, flatten and put in a box standing so they can be flipped through. The empty cases are just in garbage bags stored in the shed. I keep track of what's been unboxed and put in the case with a flag in DVD Profiler. Mostly only things we've watched and stuff only I'd be interested in (Obscure horror) goes in to the case. Then, set a filter in DVD Profiler and browse what's in the case without having to look at little labels. It's a lot of work up front, but pretty easy to maintain now.

For movies still in their original cases, I have them grouped by interest group (Not necessarily genre).  This is to help narrow down when searching for what we want to watch, otherwise it can be a bit daunting.

Not necessarily kid-friendly
Action/suspense
Comedy/drama
Horror general (Paranormal Activity, Hellraiser, Halloween, etc)
Horror extreme (Cannibal Holocaust, Salo, Guinea Pig, etc.)
Horror zombies (Zombie movies. )
Anime
Martial arts
Foreign (Non-English)

All Kid-friendly
Super hero and tween/teen movies
Kid's movies live action
Kid's movies animated

Due to space constraints, box-sets and TV Series' go where they can fit and aren't necessarily stored in any particular order.

Has anyone ever tried the Bellagio - Italia leather book-like binders?  We have decided to get rid of my old DVD shelves because my 2yr is always messing with the DVDs and we worry about the high shelves tipping over.
