Bright Ideas...

Post by russ »

I was in an organizational mood. I looked around and saw all my cds stackd on shelves taking up so much space.

I rarely play cd's anymore.
All the music is on my computer or iPod.
The cd's just gather dust.

Aha!
I'll buy a bunch of those zippered cd albums that I see dj's use, and put all my discs into those, and throw out all the jewel boxes, and therefore
save ALOT of space!

So I run out and buy 4 of them, thinking I have about 900 or so cds.
I get home and am ready to begin.

WHAT A FOOKIN' NIGHTMARE!
Finding all the "A"s and then "B"s and so on and so on.
Making sure I didn't make any mistakes and forget to put all the "G"s in before I started "H".

I had cd's all over the room. In stacks that looked like they were going to tip over. The cat was freaked wih all the commotion and wouldn't step paw into the room.

All in all took about 10 hours over a 2 day period.
I'm glad I did it, but what a pain in the ass.

Adding cds is gonna be a bitch if you didn't leave any spaces...

I did leave a few spaces, but with these books you can also add extra pages too.

Oooh, I like your style. Mind passing along what brand those are? I like the look and I like the idea of being able to add pages. You have inspired me.

I tossed out all my CD cases recently and stuck the discs in some real cheap ass $7.84 holders from Walmart. Fuck 'em if they can't take a joke..

those aren't bad. they're pretty cool looking. if i had the space i might do that myself, but as it is those would take up more space than the cd cases. but then i don't have 900 cd's. i was close to that once, but i got rid of most of them 3 years ago.

Chris G's idea has been looking pretty good to me, lately. Disc Sox Pro... But the idea of spending $600 on sleeves (to hold around 1200 cds) seems a little crazy to me...

Those things look gay. A couple of pine boards and a few cement blocks work just fine for me. LOL!
