Where do you store your DVDs? If you have a dozen or so original DVDs in your hand, it represents a sizable investment on your part for your entertainment. If the DVDs happen to be related to gaming, then your investment is going to be even more valuable. In such a scenario, can you afford to have all the DVD strewn around in an untidy pile?
Remember, the DVD is nothing but a piece of plastic. If you step on it, chances are high that it is going to crack. It is not designed for heavy and rough usage. Hence, you must learn to take proper care of your DVD at all times.
Do not buy discs unless you have sufficient space to store them. The discs must be stored in a cool and dry place. Further, you should store it vertically. Avoid storing DVDs in the horizontal position. Chances of one DVD placing pressure on the other and leading to scratches will be very high.
The idea of not purchasing new releases because you don’t have space may seem very harsh. However, what is the fun in purchasing DVDs only to find that quality of discs deteriorate due to bad storage? In any case, purchasing a DVD rack or shelf is not a very expensive proposition.
You can even make one yourself if you are good at wood work. If you are short of floor space, you can opt for shelf that can be hung on the wall. Just make sure that the shelf is fixed in such a manner that there is no scope for the entire shelf coming down along with your total DVD collection.
