because of that, i have always been hesitant about getting rid of the cd cases. well, now with a wife on the way, it was finally time to get rid of them. diana's friends miranda and levi recently got rid of all their dvd cases and bought plastic sleeves and boxes to store them in. it seemed quite handy, so i decided to follow their lead. i went and got four boxes (each can hold 100 cds), and 400 plastic sleeves. it was a major undertaking, going through the hundreds of cases and transferring them into the plastic sleeves, taking out the booklet and putting that in there too. it took a while, but now that its done, i am quite pleased with the results- instead of a six foot tall bookshelf filled with cds, now i just have four boxes which can easily fit onto just one shelf! diana is very happy with the extra room too.
