5 Ways to organize DVDs & Blurays

This week’s organizational post is on how to organize your DVDs & Blurays. I have a substantial movie collection and with such a large quantity of movies organization is definitely important. Below are my top 5 ways to organize that I have tried and/or seen online with links to other posts from bloggers on DVD & Bluray organization.

Using plastic containers such a plastic shoe boxes sort all your films based on rating and place them in colored CD cases inside the plastic bins & label the bins.

Organizational method #2. BELOW RIGHT. Alphabetical order. Photo courtesy of Simply organized. Store the films in DVD sleeves and organize alphabetically in a storage basket.

    We have so many that number 3 would be perfect. I would have to con my husband out of the cases. He swears those sleeves scratches discs up. My trouble is every drawer and cabinet in the living room houses a dvd or bluray!

    I love #2 and #3. WE have so many DVDs and Blu Ray disks and they always end up just kind of tossed inside of our entertainment stand with no organization at all.

    As a military wife who could barely handle her busy schedule I am truly glad I came across your post. I love those different tips about organizing your DVD’s! What I like is to sort it out based on how I like the movie. I compiled all my favorites DVD and then separate those that I dont like that much.

    wow. we haven’t had dvd’s or cd’s for years. I guess it’s because we live traveling so those are just unpractical. I do like the systems you mentioned though! I used to have mine in a black zippered sleeve thing.

    These are some great ideas for organizing your home. It’s something that I seldom have time to do but definitely need to do more often.
