Last year we got rid of ALL of our VHS tapes except some homemade stuff & little compilations made over the years. It freed up SO MUCH SPACE. I don't miss them at all.
Also, a few years ago I got rid of all cassette tapes except mixes. That along with the VHS tapes basically opened up this entire dresser we keep our stereo on with room to spare! YAY!
I love the feeling of a good purge! ha ha!
