Update: Clearing The DVD Clutter

Back in June we talked about how to clear the dvd clutter that can be a side effect of having a small movie obsession like we do. Our idea worked brilliantly until the credenza holding our dvds, found a new home at the garage sale we held just before moving in November. Click through the jump to see how we stored 500+ dvds out of sight and out of mind in our new space!

Our credenza has 3 doors, and 6 shelves total. On 4 of those shelves we used these leather trays from Target which when turned and put in on their side, hold three rows of dvd's brilliantly.

On the other two shelves, we needed room for the accessories that go with our gaming consoles. So instead of the trays, we mixed it up and used red fabric bins from Itso (also from trusty Target). They are fantastic little creations. Check them out of you haven't seen them yet.

Overall we are excited about everything fitting into our credenza and we haven't looked back since we ditched our dvd cases. In fact our box sets are almost frustrating since they don't have the same clean aesthetic that the slim line jewel cases do. We are pleased with our decision to make the jump to new slimmer cases and don't really miss the artwork on the box, or the extra space they took up.

Have you made the switch to something trimmer than a standard dvd box? Leave us a comment below and let us know!
