Every day you'll get a new decluttering/simplifying challenge.

The people on Freecycle are going to LOVE you!

Today's challenge: Go through your videos, DVDs, tapes, CDs, and video games. Throw out the scratched up CD/DVDs that don't work anymore. Donate the ones you don't use, or give it away on freecycle. Make sure everything's in the correct case. Even alphabatize for extra "points".

We are in the process of copying our DVDs and selling the originals. We have the copies organized into folders by genre. It takes up less room and it's easier to find the movie we want. I use ListPro to organize the movies by genre, running time, director and title. This is a big project! I'm hoping to be finished soon!

karaboo - not exactly legal either. under fair use laws, you may make a backup copy but if you get rid of the original, you're legally supposed to eliminate the backup.

Wouldn't want anyone breaking any laws on my advice. Use your own judgement.

My husband and I just went through our CDs. We hauled the ones we didn't want to sell. I made $62.50, and my husband made $35!! Woo Hoo...The videos are mostly his, and he doesn't think we should give any away. I am not a big repeat video watcher, so thast is his area.

Next challenge????

Okay, this is something we have not done in far too long. I'm on it!
