Wow, that's a lot of packaging. We had the same reaction as AT Reader Holly, when we compressed our DVD collection. There is a lot of wasteful packaging, that for some reason we all become attached to. Seriously, it's only plastic and why do we feel the need to devote entire pieces of furniture to house plastic mass-produced containers? We filed ours away in one of these Allsop binders, but Holly offers another solution that allows you to keep the DVDs individually stored. She found these economical sleeves that allow her to store her DVDs and their liners in much less space than those clunky, plastic cases. Read more about Holly's ideas here.
