ASSIGNMENT: Media storage. VCRs, DVRs, and Blue-Rays, Wii, Xbox, and PlayStation; whatever components you have, you probably have movies and games that go into them.

Remove all the media and equipment to a sorting place, then wash/wipe down the insides of where you took them from.
Take all of your videos and games, whatever format they are in, and sort through them. There are probably some you never watch or play anymore. Sort those into your trash, sell, or donate bins.
With the ones you are keeping, decide whether you are going to store them alphabetically, by format, by genre, or by some combination. If you have not already, sort your videos from your games.
Return them to their former place; maybe you have identified a better storage spot, but was putting moving them off. By royal decree (not really), you have my permission to put them somewhere else.
When he was in high school, my middle son built me a video cabinet – really, a bookcase with doors. After taking the above steps, I had two empty shelves, so I use them for paperbacks.
Which reminds me, next week, we will tackle our home libraries.
