Yesterday I had a realisation. My CDs are not organised.
While I was preparing breakfast, I felt a sudden urge to hear a particular album by a particular artist – it was Masterpieces by Bob Dylan. I knew I had it. I knew what the cover looked like. My CD collection is not vast, so it should have been easy to find. But it wasn’t there.
I went straight to my son, who has a habit of borrowing our CDs. He’s a music fan with varied tastes. No, he hadn’t borrowed it, didn’t know we owned it, but “here, you can listen to Desire by Bob Dylan. I bought it yesterday.” Ok, that’s a pretty good substitute, so it got played. But I was still bugged by the missing album.
Lightbulb moment – maybe it’s in my husband’s car. He likes to keep a selection there for long car trips. Sure enough it was there, with a broken plastic cover.
I don’t have many CDs but I would like to find them when I want them. I would like to know which ones have been borrowed and by whom. Pretty much everything else in my house can be found when and where I want it. But I’m feeling a little frustrated about my CDs.
Now my questions for you are – How can improve my CD organisation? What system do you use? My CDs need your help.
