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.
<p>That is why I always emphasize on the fact that something so useful does not necessarily need to be super expensive. Sometimes, things that you already own can be innovated into something that you did not know could be produced so quickly and almost effortlessly. DVD storage racks or shelves often cost quite an amount but duct tape and cardboard are free of charge if you have them lying around the house. If you do not, then search your neighbour&rsquo;s trash, I bet they have some.</p>
<p>Such a simple yet so useful innovation. Duct tapes have always been very helpful in handling minor hiccups around the house, especially in the kitchen, and with your idea, it has proven to have done it yet again. Not only are you able to neatly store your DVDs in this DVD storage box, you also get to save the environment by recycling your used cardboard boxes. If you were to wrap them all up in fanciful gift wrappers, you can actually make other types of storage boxes, perhaps for the room or kitchen areas. If you need them for the bathroom, simply wrap them with waterproof plastic wrappers.</p>
