How to organize your DVDs and Blu-Rays

Lately, I showed you the solution I found to keep DVDs and Blu-ray while saving a ton of space.

Once it was done, I had to find how to classify them. As my DVDs are in a drawer under my TV, I needed something I could see from the top.

I found these tabs that are angled. They are just perfect. I used white card stock that I already had to do the separators. As I thought it was missing a bit of color, I added some washi tape to the card stock to make it a bit more cheerful.

What you need:

  • Washi tape
  • tabs
  • White card stock (ideally legal size to avoid losses)
  • Permanent black pen

I mixed the colors of tabs with these colors of washi tape.

I cut the card stock 6 ” high by 7-1 / 2″ wide. This is why the legal size card stock is better than the letter size.

I then applied a strip of washi tape to the top of the card stock. It’s this part that we’ll see.

I sorted the DVDs alphabetically. It allowed me to see which “letters” I had the most and how to divide them.

In the rest of the drawer, I placed the DVDs that I wanted to keep in their original box.

Special editions, collector boxes … all excuses are good you’ll say! 😉 But it’s difficult to cut them to make them fit in the pockets. It’s like a therapy for me: I need to go step by step! 😛

Finally, I like my tabs and pockets. It’s very easy to search and find the DVDs.

For now, I’ve used only the pink tabs (almost). That’s because I keep the other colors for the rest of the DVD / Blu-ray. Yes, I still have a whole box to organize! But it’s summer and I try to enjoy the nice weather instead, while it lasts! Who can blame me?
