Organized for Entertainment

Ever get frustrated because you can’t find the book or movie you want? Tired of tripping over video games? Use these tips and your media will always be in its proper place!

  • Books. We all have them, yet most of us put them on bookshelves without much thought. That’s fine…until you’re looking for a specific title. Organize your books so that you can easily find what you’re looking for by author, genre, subject, or title. If you’re more likely to remember a book based on its cover art, group them by color! To add visual interest, alternate stacking your books horizontally and vertically. Decorative items can add flair, just make sure they don’t clutter the shelves!
  • DVDs, Blu-Ray, and CDs can take up a lot of room. If you don’t mind ditching the cases, movie sleeves accommodate several discs in the space of one case. If you’re like me and want to keep the unit together, opt for wall mounted multi-media shelves that will keep your discs organized and out of the way. If you don’t have a huge collection, decorative storage boxes (labeled, of course) are a good option for keeping your movies tucked away.
  • Is there a gamer in your house? Use vintage suitcases or decorative bins to store games and consoles so they’re out of the way when not in use. You can even cut small holes in them for cords so they can charge while being stored!
  • Going wireless can really cut down on clutter. You can go as big as a home theater system and multi-room audio, or start small with wireless surround sound or Wi-Fi system that allows you to listen to your own digital music collection as well as subscription music services such as Pandora.
