I don’t know about y’all, but space is limited at our house. My remedy to that problem is to get rid of items we can do without, and maximize the storage that we do have.
This armoire was graciously given to us and although I would rather have a dresser with a ton of drawers, this is what I have to work with for the time being. Up until yesterday, the armoire’s single drawer housed all of our DVD’s, and even though they were put away and organized, I knew I wasn’t maximizing the space to it’s fullest potential.
We’ve all seen those binders that are made to store CD’s and DVD’s, but those aren’t for me. I prefer to keep our DVD’s in alphabetical order and would have to rotate each one anytime we bought a new movie. Ain’t nobody got time for that! So when I stumbled upon these Memorex Sleeves, I knew they would be perfect for storing our DVD’s in the least amount of space as possible.
So, as I do with any project, I pulled out the movies that we didn’t want anymore, leaving me with this:
I designated a color for each category and transferred the DVD’s from their cases to the correct colored sleeve.
I labeled each category with Post-It Tabs and my label maker*, and placed the sleeves in a container from Tuesday Morning. (similar option)
See how much space I saved!
Now, I’m left with a big empty drawer and am pumped (more than any normal person should be) to figure out what I can store in there!
* Can I just say that I am obsessed with this label maker! I have no idea how I survived without one in my life for the past 25 years!!!
