Organizing Video Games & DVDs

Have video games & dvds taken over your playroom?! If so, here are some tips to keep them under control & more easily accessible for your kids.....
If you use a media cabinet for storage, I recommend using clear bins. This blogger separated hardware/accessories, figures, and games. Super easy for a kid to grab a bin and find the video game or piece they need!

 Instead of having a media console, another great idea is to repurpose a dresser. Again, use bins to separate games from accessories. Each drawer can even have it's own purpose....1-movies, 2-video games, etc. Like I mentioned earlier, the goal is to make this system kid-friendly!!

Another option is a lidded option. This is my favorite! I love how everything has its' place and then you can just close the lid and not see it :)

Use a back-of-the-door organizer to store video game controllers & accessories.

 I don't expect everyone to be able to build a swivel tower like this blogger did, but I love the pegboard idea to hang controllers etc. So, if you have the wall space, hanging a pegboard would be a great option.

Finally, those pesky DVDs...... I love the idea of getting rid of the cases and just filing them in a cd sleeve. This blogger has a whole system of inventory sheets printed out, but if that's too extreme for you, I would just color-code the movies. (Example: Blue = brother's movies, Red = sister's movies, Yellow = Mom & Dad's movies....)

Happy Organizing!

  1. Hey – great blog, just looking around some blogs, seems a really nice platform you are using. I’m currently using WordPress for a few of my blogs but looking to change one of them over to a platform similar to yours as a trial run. Anything in particular you would recommend about it?

  2. Hi John! Thank you for the sweet words. I started out using Blogger for a personal blog 8 years ago, so it just made sense for me to use one with Blogger professionally. I will be honest though, I'm not the most tech-savvy, so I hired someone to design this blog. It's super user-friendly for me, but I'm probably not the best person to ask for the technical side of stuff. Sorry!
