The CD Organizing Process
Utilize the general organizing procedure
of purge, sort and store, and apply it to organize CDs.
- Start by gathering all of your CDs and CD storage containers. Go through them ONE item at a time.
Pick up each CD and decide if it is worth keeping. In order to
accomplish this, ask yourself appropriate questions (i.e. Is this CD in usable condition? Is it scratched? Am I going to listen to it again? Is it a single song that I already have on my computer or can easily access somewhere online?)
- If you have a large CD collection, then it might be a good idea to combine the Purge and Sort steps of the organizing process. Thus, if you decide to keep something then take it one step further and put it into a category that makes sense to you (i.e. by genre, by artist name).
- As you make decisions, put the book in the corresponding
pile, bag or box (with the corresponding CD case if you have it) - Keep, Donate or Distribute (to a charity or someone you know if the CD works but you don't want it), Recycle/Trash. **Don't forget to record
your donations for tax purposes.**
- Take out the trash and put the donations in your car. Also, contain any CDs for distribution to others in a bag or box
and put them in a place where you will see them and remember to give
them out (i.e. by the back door). This hinders the possibility of
undoing your hard CD organizing work.
- Now that you've gotten rid of all the CDs you no longer want, it's time to focus
on what's left. Sort them into categories that make sense to you, so you can find them later effortlessly (i.e. by genre, alphabetically by artist).
There are so many CD storage containers and this is one of them. I just love this CD storage cube from The Container Store! It's cute and functional.
There are TONS of CD storage solutions to store your CDs in an organized
way, so let's get creative! Photos of all the products I detail here
are at the bottom of the page.
best way to keep your organized CD collection in order is to put them
back after use. If you're going to pull one out, then take an extra 5
seconds to also put one back in. It takes so little time and will save
you hours in the long run.
- Go through your CDs and weed out any that no longer work, you no longer want, etc.
