I just finished unboxing, alphabetizing, and re-boxing over 600 CDs. After 12 years in our house, Mrs_S and I are getting ready to down-size our empty nest. We hardly ever listen to a CD any more, but we don't want to get rid of them. They've been on three different dust-magnet shelves for years, so Mrs_S decided they need to be boxed up. I insisted we use some type of box that would allow them to be stored standing up, so we can read the spines. The only boxes we could find that were the right depth were large USPS Priority mail boxes. Then Mrs_S set about boxing them up, but just sort of grabbed them off the shelves and put them in the boxes. In the end were kind of alphabetized, but not really, and there were a lot of random CDs scattered everywhere. And she didn't included a small shelf of about 100 CDs I had upstairs in my studio. In short, chaos. There was no way we'd ever be able to find a particular CD if we wanted to. So, in addition to packing my upstairs stash of CDs, I concluded I had to unbox them all and put 'em back in an order that makes sense. There was a large handful of loose booklets that had to be re-united with their discs and jewel boxes. There was a smaller handful of booklets for which the CD no longer exists; those went in the trash. It took me two nights. I ended up with 11 boxes with about 56 CDs in each. Now, I just have to label each box with the letters it contains. What a PITA.
