I just had a crazy idea that I think I am going to follow through on. I am going to throw away all of my Blu Ray plastic containers and just keep the discs in a binder.

I did that for a while (saved the boxes, but put them in the attic). I kept things alphabetized with a table of contents at the front. It was pretty handy. Except for when people wouldn't put them back where they belonged or when I ran out of empty slots for certain letters. Then I had to shift all of the movies after that point to make space.

I think that someone probably makes a binder where it holds the case cover (just the paper) and the disc(s). That would be nice too.

I am going to take a deep breath and "recycle" them.

I prefer leaving them in the cases and on shelves in the home theater room.

I shifted from Paradigm to Axiom. Now that's what I call a paradigm shift.

Part of the attraction of the home theater is when guests like to browse through my titles. Flopping through a binder could risk damage to the movies. I guess a printout would be fine though.

I find more risk of danger occurs when trying to get them out of certain plastic containers. Some are designed well while others sometimes make me feel like I'm going to scratch or break something.

I'm a binder person. I searched for a good one with soft linings and bound so that it actually still works when it's full. I also now have almost my entire collection digitized. I keep the binder close at hand if I want to not be paranoid about compression on certain movies. A few I splurged on when I digitized them and they remain at the full 30+ Gb .mkv files so that I have a few demo material concerts and movies at hand with the click of a few buttons.

I still have all the cases stored away to contain the "extra" disks and booklets I don't feel the need to have close at hand.
