CD galore!

While I was going through my living room during my “pseudo packing party” earlier this year, my music collection was one of those things that jumped out at me as being a separate tiny project for a later date.

Well the later date have come and gone, and its time to do something about the amount of music CD’s I have lurking around.

Once every blue moon, I go through all my music CD’s and clear out the ones I don’t want anymore. I tend to rip all my music to my computer first, so that I can keep the music I love, but I don’t necessarily need to keep the physical disks.

My rule is! Rip them all, but save only as many as will go into one CD case! Now that is not as restrictive as it might sound, as my CD case will take 80.

Why do I keep any CD’s at all? Well in the early days I used to play them at home as most of us did. Nowadays I stream my music through Wimp (similar to Spotify) at home, but I still have an old fashion CD player in my car. So if I want anything other than radio music, CD it is šŸ˜‰

And since I’m one of the crazy people, who loves driving with the top down on the car, “singing” at the top of my lungs along with the music, you see why I just have to keep some of my favourites around šŸ˜‰

For the time being I’m keeping around 50 albums, I’m sure some of these won’t make it through the next cut, but for now I’m good with that. Fortunately there are a few more going out the door… 79 CD’s to be exact…

  1. That’s great! We have been saving all our CDs, my husband had about 800 when I met him. We’ve thrown away the cases and keep the CDs in plastic pockets in three bags. Takes up very little space so I can’t see the point in getting rid of them. šŸ™‚

    1. Thanks šŸ™‚ I know it’s not a humongous amount of cd’s that left the house… But since I hardly ever buy CDs (mostly gifts) it takes a while to gain a “collection” šŸ˜‰ even so, a cleanup now and then is always good… I guess my next car (100 years down the line) won’t have a CD player and THEN I can get rid of them all šŸ˜‰
