A few years back my kids were super little and our days were filled with all sorts of arts, crafts, and of course, lots and lots of Disney Movies! I have vivid memories of watching Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella as a little girl, so Disney Movies had become a part of my kids’ lives too! We even joined the Disney Movie Club a couple of times, so we had no shortage of kids DVDs.
I started noticing how much space the DVD cases were taking up so I set out to find a solution to make the best use of the space. We previously had an entire cabinet full of DVDs, but I wanted to use it for something else and I knew there had to be a better solution out there.
Thankfully, streaming services like Netflix and Hulu have dramatically changed the way we watch our shows, but the DVD problem still remains. I found these Clear DVD sleeves on Amazon and I knew they were the solution to my problem! I could hardly wait for them to come in the mail, and when they did I set out to organize them immediately.
I cut the DVD cover off of the DVD and placed it in the front of my new clear envelope. Then I put the DVDs into the sleeve as well. They fit perfectly!! Then I did it for all other DVDs and was absolutely astounded at the space that it saved me! I had so much free space available that I was able to clear out the entire DVD cabinet and start using it for my spices. My space looked so clean and clutter-free and it was a complete breath of fresh air.
The Storage Box
After I had all of these newly re-organized DVDs, I realized that I needed some sort of box to put them in. So I looked around for the perfect solution for a couple of weeks and finally found it! I found the Kvarnvik Storage box that fits the DVDs absolutely perfectly! I love how this storage box is even more on the decorative side and I don’t mind putting it out in the open.
I even went a step further and created DVD dividers according to the type of movie. You could easily do this yourself! Take some cardstock and use the new DVD as a template and trace around the DVD sleeve onto the cardstock. Now cut it out, leaving a small notch at the top so you can label it! Here are some category ideas that you could use for your own DVD storage space:

Because the storage space in our homes is so valuable to us, this solution was an absolute NO BRAINER! For only a few dollars, you can completely transform your DVD and Video Game storage! Viola, just like magic!
