My definition of purge – sell, donate, repurpose or throw away items as you see fit



CDs and DVDs

Through the school holidays I plan on giving my husband’s ‘man cave’ a revamp and this means sorting through all our CD’s and DVD’s and being ruthless, they are taking up so much space and collecting dust.  Over the past few years we have stopped buying DVD’s and CD’s as we purchase our music now from iTunes and hire out the movies from the local DVD store.  I’m going to keep the CD’s that give me good memories and purge the rest.  I will also keep the DVD’s that I want to watch with the kids soon and find a better storage solution (which I will share with you!!).


Look what I just noticed, Ben Stiller was in Reality Bites, I loved this movie all those years ago.


Todays task is to:

Purge the CD’s and DVD’s you no longer listen to or watch.

How many items have you been able to purge today?

I would like to see a photo of your purge pile on Instagram, use the hashtag #declutter52

I have already done the job of organising DVDs and CDs. All the boxes recycled. Cds and DVDs in coloured covers in a little box separated with labels by colours by types of films or music. Now they are all in two small boxes rather than in three towers!!! Could send you a picture but don’t know how …!!! Good luck!!!

I’m pretty sure Ben Stiller actually wrote and/or directed Reality Bites too. Great movie and soundtrack!

Had my CDs purged for me in a flood a few years back. Would love to have them back no matter how much dust they collected. As we don’t have a TV antennae we watch DVDs a lot so I only donate a few that are truly terrible and I would not watch again.
