It’s been awhile….I took a week off for my BIRTHDAY! And now back to reality.
I love movies…kind of a lot. Back in my before I had kids life the hubs and I went to the movies almost every weekend. I also love watching movies again and again and am a complete sucker for anything from the 1980’s. Yes I love Jake Ryan. Wait…what? You don’t know who that is???? That is a real problem.
Row loves movies too. She loves pulling them off the shelves and stacking them and throwing them and ripping the covers. You see my point. I had them in alphabetical order. I am a bit of a Type A personality. So basically what I’m getting at is
1. I love movies.
2. I own a ton of movies.
3. My toddler destroys that area all day long.
I have found a solution!!!! It saves space-so much space. It also enables me to move the dvd’s out of baby reaching abilities.
Here’s the before picture. Mind you this is only one shelf of four shelves and this is after I did the big purge and sold about half of our movies.
So I went and bought some decorative boxes at Hobby Lobby-I ended up needing two. I think I’ll buy another just in case I need it so they’ll match later. I also bought DVD sleeves and tabs.
All the dvd’s themselves go into the sleeves labeled. And bam! All our dvd’s fit onto one shelf now. THE TOP SHELF!
Yes I have asked hubs to buy me a D’Lorean like a million times. Yes his boss has one-it’s so wrong.
How’s your organizing going? I had really started with a bang but decided to slow down. I was finding all kinds of things to get rid of and then ran into the problem of having a ton of things I needed to sell stacking up. I resolved that until those items are sold or donated I would wait to clean out the next drawer.
I hope you’re doing an amazing job-well I know you are!
