Step Into Our Music Collection

Vinyl, CD’s, cassettes, eight tracks (really?!), can take up an overwhelming amount of Basic Space.

Unless you’re Rob Gordon, and are willing to spend hours reorganizing your entire music collection every week, it’s time to get things in New Order.

We love these vintage record cases! Find new ones at Ikea.

CDs can be stored in album/cases. They’re the perfect way to hide your Howard The Duck soundtrack. Labled storage containers (as above) are also effective (use for mixed tapes too!).  

Or use nifty electronic programing equipment.

Wall mounted or stand up storage containers are useful (although antiquated). If you insist on displaying CDs look for storage solutions Born, err made, In The USA.  And hope they one day fit in closets, on the back of doors and Through The Bathroom Window.   

Sell the CDs you no longer listen to (they’re not recyclable and will end up in a landfill). Then go buy a pack of gum with the money.  

Digital music should be edited too. Computers and portable MP3 players have an incredible amount of storage available. Take time to make sure they’re holding only the songs you Truly Madly Deeply enjoy.  Create playlists and name them accordingly (based on mood, genre, activity etc…).

And finally, it’s time to stop holding on to CDs for one song (and for the “art work” – barf). Remember there are thousands of online (legal – ahem!) downloading options. 

Just Imagine what you can find!
