Picture of Cardboard and Duct Tape: DVD Storage
I've got three kids and our DVD storage area is a mess!  I needed a low cost way to keep things more organized.  With a little imagination, some cardboard and duct tape, I am very pleased at the final results.

Tools & Materials needed:
  • cardboard box
  • duct tape
  • tape measure or ruler
  • marker
  • box cutter

Step 1: Find a box and cut to size

  • Find a box.  This bleach box seemed to a good fit.  I could easily slide a DVD into it.
  • Measure and cut the box.  Anywhere from 5"-6" is adequate for DVDs.

Step 2: Tape up your box

  • You now have two halves that can be used for storage. The lower half is already glued and ready.  Just tape the other side up, and you are all set.

Step 3: Finished Product

  • I am happy with the final result.  I had to modify the length of the boxes to fit under our cabinets.  Thanks for looking :)
