Learn how I saved 75% of the space occupied by my DVDs and Blu-rays with this easy and quick organization idea. You’ll even get to keep all your movies!
If you have kids like me, you probably have a ton of DVDs and Blu-rays of animated movies that are taking way to much space!
Should I sort or get rid of some? Sorry, but I can’t throw them away! Especially the Disney ones that get in stores only every 10 years! I still need to keep these classic movies for a few more years !!! But how to find good DVD storage that saves space while keeping your DVDs?
Several years ago, I bought the IKEA Billy Bookcase made especially for DVDs. It was the perfect media storage. The multiple shelves stored all my DVDs and CDs, it was great. But time has passed and it’s not the style I’m looking for anymore in my living room! Plus, I already used them of an entirely new purpose.

**Note: these DVD and Blu-Ray sleeves are exactly the ones I bought. Another clear version exists but some comments said that they were scratching the DVDs. This is not the case with the one I used.
Steps to follow:
And that’s it! Now, I’ll only have to do the same thing with the rest of the movies we have! But I’m convinced I’ll be able to get them to fit all in the same drawer!!! What do you think?
Do you also have a DVD collection that you don’t want to get rid of? If you don’t have a nice drawer like mine, there are other fun ways you can use the same sleeves. You can use a nice storage box with a cover or even just a simple box to hold them upright. Here are some options for you:
