Organize Your Home Movies

How to organize and store your DVD or Blu-ray movies in the least amount of space possible.

When I moved into a smaller home I needed to reduce the number my DVD home movies or find a different way to store them. DVD movie boxes are small, but they do take up space. Adding an entire wall of shelves in the family room was not an option.

I decided to just put my favorite movies, the ones that I will watch again and again, in the family room bookcase. I sorted the rest of the movies into several boxes labeled Christmas, Western, Adventure, Disney, and Not Viewed Yet and stored them on shelves in the garage.

It didn't take long before I realized this system didn't work for me. I started actively looking for DVD storage systems and found that there are rotating towers, boxes made to hold DVD full or slim cases, cabinets made specifically for DVDs, floating wall storage shelves, DVD storage racks, and CD/DVD wallets or binders.

I went with the CD/DVD binder system. I found a binder that would hold 352 DVDs. Two of these large binders would hold most of my movies and give me room to add more DVDs as time went on. I also bought a smaller binder to store all my Disney movies. Once the home movies are sorted into the binders in alphabetical order they can be keep in the family room without taking up more than one shelf of small bookcase. The DVD cases are stored in boxes in the utility room instead of in the garage.

You don't have to give up your collection of home movies because of lack of space. The binder system of organizing and storing DVD and Blu-ray movies proved to me ideal for me in my small home. You may not need to reduce your home movie space so drastically, and might find that a floating wall unit if what you need or, if you have the floor space, a series of rotating towers might be just right for you.

I organized my binders by alphabet, but you could sort your's by theme, actors, or any other method you like. I pulled up each movie on Amazon, and printed the front of the DVD case (four movie fronts on a page), then cut them to fit into the binder DVD holders. I loan my movies to relatives and can tell at a glance what the movie is and if it available to view. The movie front picture also provides a holding space when the movie has been loaned out.
