This idea was a truly redefining “baskets!” moment for our household. We were running out of precious bookshelf space, so we decided to recycle all our DVD cases — take every disc, put them in disc sleeves, and store them in a lovely media basket.
The sleeves we got are different colors, so you could organize using the different colors, but we just sorted alphabetically by title.
Now we have all our paperbacks stored nicely in our entertainment center, and our entire movie collection fits on our tiny endtable.
This could also work for video games, CD collections, any discs that are eating up precious storage space.
