If you are having a hard time finding a place to put all of your DVDs, it might be time to start thinking about liquidating some of them. DVD’s can quickly accumulate if you’re a movie buff, and sometimes you might find that having less will cut down the time it takes to decide which movie to watch, by making it easier to go through your list. Here are some tips to loose the clutter and streamline your film collection
Before you can do anything else with your collection you will have to pull it all out and look it over. This way you can see what movies you want to keep, what movies you can get rid off, and organize your remaining collection into themes as long as you have it out. Start by making three piles, one to keep for sure, one your not sure about and one to get rid of. That way you can go over the pile you’re not sure about again, so that you do not make any mistakes. One of the worst feelings for a video collector is to get rid of a DVD, just to find out that there was only one releasing of it, and that they are very hard to find. Make absolutely sure you won’t want to watch the film again. Once you have your pile to get rid of, there are a couple ways to do it.
Online auction sites can be a very lucrative way to get rid of your old DVDs. They can get you a little cash back, and sometimes enough to replace it, should you find that you made a mistake and miss it. However fees can kill you, so always make sure what the DVD is going for before you list it.
Another way to get rid of your DVDs is to donate them to thrift shops, or to your local library. Local libraries usually take donations, but sometimes the library will just get rid of the DVD, so make sure you ask the library if they take donations and if they need a copy of the film you have.
Pawn Shops are yet another way to get rid of your old DVDS and get a little money in your pocket. Good Pawn Shops usually pay half a dollar for a DVD with a case, which can add up when you have a couple of them.
Whatever you decide to do, make sure it’s the best for you and your community. Often you will find donating them to a thrift store or library very satisfying.
