Something adjustable is good and allows you use only the space that you need. This cabinet has 5 adjustable shelves and the remaining three are fixed. It gives you an option to customize its use according to your preference. Count on it to save on space because the shelves go vertical and the eight compartments are enough to store your DVDs. You can use some space to store compact disks, a few novels and books.

An Overview On CD DVD Media Storages

Many of us still cherish the CD and DVD collections that we spent so much time creating during the years. These media discs not only represent a decent financial investment, but they carry incredible amounts of memories and nostalgia that many of us would rather not part with. If you’re digging through boxes of old CDs and DVDs and are finally ready to store them properly, there are many great products that help you conveniently store those CDs and DVDs in a safe and easy-to-find place.

If you like to take your collection with you to different places, it can be really unwieldy to tote around a bunch of plastic cases that slide around and take up a lot of room. There are great travel cases for CDs and DVDs though, that will make carting your collection around really easy and efficient. A product like the AmazonBasics CD/DVD Binder Case can hold 400 discs, each in their own separate slots with soft backings to not scratch the CDs and DVDs. The case zips up and there is a handle for you to carry it around with. You can choose to put the sleeves in with the discs if you want to see the original artwork or lyrics, or you can simply put the discs in as they are, either way, you can’t beat this method of storing discs when traveling.

For a similarly compact storage method, but with a completely different design, there are neat that line all your discs into slim slots that are encased by a protective plastic sleeve. This allows a lot of discs to be readily available without any fuss or sorting through stacks and pages of CDs and DVDs. There is a useful sheet that lets you write which disc is in each slot too, so you can simply reference that before finding the slot with the same number.

For those who just want to safely store their CDs and DVDs, there are simple boxes that work as a file-folder box does, but they are built specifically to hold CDs and DVDs. You can fill up as many boxes as you need, label them, and place them safely in your attic or other storage space until you want to dig them out at a later date.

Finally, there is an easy way to display your hard-earned CD and DVD collection for all to see, and that’s with a designated media storage shelf. Think of these as a bookshelf of sorts, but designed specifically to hold your favorite CDs and DVDs with the spine showing for everyone to see, and for you to find easily when you want to watch or listen to one.

DYWM Fun Fact

If you thought your collection of CDs was big, think again. There is a Brazilian businessman, born in the 1950s, who goes by Zero Freitas and has amassed a collection of over 8 million discs during his lifetime and he’s building a warehouse specifically to store the collection.

The CD DVD Media Storage Buying Guide

  • Not all your discs need to be stored the same way. Keep your favorite DVDs somewhere handy so you can grab them when you want to watch and keep your most coveted CDs, the ones you’ve already saved to your computer, in safe storage for protection and longevity.
  • Using a simple disc cleaning device is an easy way to get some of those old CDs and DVDs to stop skipping.
  • Old CDs and DVDs that are too far gone and won’t play properly can be donated to a school or charity that will be used as arts and craft supplies by children. Old CDs can make great shiny mosaic pieces!
