If there is another way to store CDs thatís not just on a shelf, Iíd like to know. You know that picture in the OP? Itís gotten to the point where I have to stack them in nooks and crannies. Where am I going to put New Orderís Republic?

I'm an old and I still buy CDs too.

Any suggestions for a more compact storage method than just sticking 500 CDs on a shelf? I'm in the process of ripping but loving A I've got a long way to go. And right now they're all either

1. stacked up on the floor after ripping, or
2. in a heavy duty contractor bag in the corner of our study waiting to be ripped.

And no I don't want to toss them all after they're ripped, but the contractor bag is pretty lame.

You can get a CaseLogic CD binder that will hold 300-500 cds and their jewel case art which will cut down on the space for sure. Just keep in mind if you ever want to sell CDs that without the jewel case/art the street value of a disc drops to zero.

If you have no art for a lot of them already you can just throw a bunch on a CD spindle and put that up on a shelf.

Insomniac - Green Day
Screaming for Vengeance - Judas Priest

There's nowhere near me that has a great selection of CDs, so I have to take what I can get.

Without me, there is no mission.
I am the mission!


Here is an old picture of my CD collection before I boxed it. I probably had 100 more albums than this picture shows by the time I took them down.


I use these sleeves and put them in these boxes.






I only get rid of the jewel cases. If they're digipacks or have a nice sleeve with artwork different from the booklet, then I put them in the box. 2+ CD releases go with the album cover/booklet with one disk, and the back page with the second CD. According to iTunes, there are 168 albums in that box pictured above.

Listened to it again recently, and yeah. It's not great. Not dogshit, but definitely nowhere near as good as the first. It does have Rock and Roll Dreams Come Through, though, which is a really great song. The rest ranges from alright to dogshit.

That one's good because I'm pretty sure it's the only one that isn't him bellowing the song's title for eight minutes.

I have all my original copy CDs in a file cabinet with the file type CD holders. I chucked all the jewel cases a long time ago because I was moving a lot and had them in folders, just recently upgraded to the file cabinet things and it works great.

All good suggestions, thanks! I have basically all the artwork and booklets, so I'm not sure if I want to really pare that down or not. As I'm ripping I'm keeping an eye out for any unique or rare stuff. Probably nothing, but who knows. Maybe the 2-disc edition of NIN's Broken? I dunno.

I'll take my pristine Wax Trax Black Box to the grave though.

Still buy cd's. Why? Because I don't have the room or ready cash for vinyl and I like hardcopy. Since I have 20 yr old discs that still play beautifully I don't feel like I'm missing out.

Was going to go with a few big plastic bins, but after filling one up about 75% and realizing I have a whoooooole lot more to do, I'm switching over to sleeves and boxes. Way more compact, which is what I'm looking for.

Plus, as I randomly research how much CDs are worth... they aren't worth poo poo. Bye, jewel cases (i'm keeping the super cool ones though)!

Depends on the CDs. Same with vinyl.
