Hope you all get some great ideas on how to organize all the "stuff" that comes with kids!
We had so many kids DVD's in our TV cabinet. There were too many to all fit in the cabinet and the kids were always getting into them and wanting to play with them. We have had several casualties to the kids stepping on them or scratching them etc. Well I decided to ditch the cases and store them in sleeves.....Here is the pile of empty cases....
These are the sleeves I found at The Container Store. They can go in any 3 ring binder and I had several empty ones around the house. $9.99 for 80 sleeves (Well 80 slots really). Here are all those DVD's in one binder.....so much less to store!!
I hated to get rid of all the cases but I knew we should. Half of them were broken anyway. I didn't want to get rid of all the covers though. I took the covers out and punched holes in them and put them in a seperate binder. They are in roughly the same order as the DVD's. I thought that way the kids can look at the covers and pick the movie and then we will get the DVD. It is hard for them to pick the movie without seeing the cover. All those DVD's, over 90 of them fit in the pink binder and all the covers in the blue one......Much better!!
