DIY Index Tabs For DVD Storage

Hey there everyone! Welcome to the new site! I hope you can find your way around easily.  😀

Today I’m here to share a fairly simple project. A few weeks ago I had enough of our cabinet that stored our DVD’s and CD’s. It was overflowing and I could never find what I was looking for. We had bought binder type storage for our DVD collection years ago, and it worked for a while. But, now it just wasn’t. So, I decided to condense and reorganize. I found these cute fabric covered storage bins at Target for only $6 each. Then I purchased simple paper DVD envelopes to store the DVD’s to file in the storage bin.

What you need to get your DVDs or CDs organized!

Already better!! But, I wanted to make it even easier to find the movie we wanted. So, I alphabetized and set out to make some dividers.

I decided to use some extra file folders that I had on hand. They were used, so I wasn’t losing much by using them, and they were a great weight.

I started by using a DVD in it’s envelope to trace the size and then used the tab of the file folder to create a smaller size tab for my dividers.

I simply labeled each divider with a letter of the alphabet and bam! Done! Now time to make some for our CD collection! (Are we the only ones who still own CD’s??)

I LOVE organizing! I’ll show the whole cabinet to you soon! (Click here to see our media cabinet all neat and organized.) Thanks for stopping by today!
