How to Safely Store Your DVD Collection
Summary: There are ways to safely store your DVD collection. One method is to use hard plastic jewel cases. You can also sell old discs through online buyback services and peer-to-peer selling platforms. Another way is to create something new from your old discs.
If you've got a large DVD collection, online buyback stores can help you sell it. SellDVDsOnline, for instance, is a marketplace that not only buys DVDs but also other media, such as CDs and video games. This makes it easy to sell your DVD collection online and get cash quickly. The process is simple and fast, and you can get paid quickly by either check or PayPal.
To sell your DVDs, you can either upload them to a website or use an app. You'll be able to get a quote for the DVDs that you send in. Some sites will also provide you with a free shipping label. Once the store has appraised your collection, you'll be contacted to pick out the DVDs.
Amazon: If you're looking for an online store to sell your DVDs, Amazon's buyback program is an excellent choice. It allows you to sell your DVDs and earn cash without having to spend any time or money on shipping. It also pays in gift cards and a free shipping label, making it a great option for DVD collections.
Another option for selling your DVDs is pawn shops. The stores buy used DVDs and sell them to future customers for higher prices. But before you bring them to a Borders store, you should call ahead and confirm their policy on taking used DVDs. They generally accept DVDs in good condition and in their original case or packaging. They also give you more store credit than cash.
You can also sell your DVD collection on websites like Decluttr. Decluttr has an app that allows you to scan the barcodes of your DVDs. You'll receive your money within a day after sending them to them. Payment can be sent in check, PayPal, or via direct deposit.
Besides online buyback stores, you can also sell your DVD collection at your local used bookstores. Many of these stores purchase used DVDs and video games. While the price may not be as high as online, it is still more convenient.
Making something new from your old discs is a good way to safely store them. Before doing it, you can use DVDFab DVD Copy software to create ISO files or folders from your old discs and save them on your hard drive first. Then you don't have to be concerned about the disc's contents being lost and can feel free to make something interesting from your old discs.
Whether you have a bunch of DVDs sitting around or you just want to make something unique for your home, turning old DVDs into clocks is a great idea. You can choose a theme from your favorite movie or TV show and create a clock face from it. All you need is a clock kit or a clock movement set and you'll have your own unique clock. This is a great way to repurpose 80 items.
CDs and DVDs often have beautiful iridescence that can make great pieces of decor. You can use these old pieces to create bowls, picture frames, drinks coasters, and wall art. Many DIY tutorials will walk you through the process of making something from old CDs and DVDs.
Another great idea is to create a mirrored frame from old DVDs. These can be easily cut into small pieces and then glued to a simple frame. You can even use damaged frames to create the mirrored effect. If you like to create frames, you can also check out some unique DIY picture frame ideas.
In addition to online auction sites, you can also try yard sales. Some local vendors will set up stalls at your local flea market, where you can sell your DVDs and earn cash in the process. You may not get top dollar for your DVDs, but at least you'll get rid of some of your DVD clutter while making a little cash. Don't forget to use local yard sale apps to find local sellers.
You can also make beautiful wall art using CDs. A CD suncatcher can be a great example of wall art. The colorful suncatchers you make can be hung using drilled holes or a piece of yarn. Another great idea is a cd necklace. A triangular CD can even be used as a statement necklace.
