If you are anything like me, you like to be prepared for life’s little emergencies. The worst feeling in the world is being out on errands and finding that you are on the verge of a headache or your phone’s battery is dying and you forgot your car charger.

As an avid reader of various organization blogs, I was inspired to change the way I displayed and organized my DVDs. The recommendation by most bloggers is to remove the discs from all the boxes, insert them into thin sleeves, and place them in a box or bin with homemade dividers.

After I spent the time doing this, I realized that there was one major issue to this method – it’s a lot more difficult for friends to see what movies you have and then choose what to watch. I also found that even though I created alphabetical dividers and organized the DVDs by name, it can sometimes be difficult to tell what movie it is at a glance (I’m looking at you, Napoleon Dynamite).
