    Default Storage Ideas

    So my girlfriend has been asking that I organize my video game collection a little more neatly for a while and I finally gave in and realized I should organize my stuff better. Currently it is taking up the majority of the second bedroom in our apartment which we'd like to make a guest room. As it stands now most the stuff is organized half assed in cardboard boxes. I'm thinking I should switch to rubbermaid containers or some sort of plastic containers. I'm wondering though should I just bunch everything based on Nintendo, Sega, etc into containers or should I break it up even more and get containers for each system? Any recommendations or opinions would be helpful. Thanks.

    Is it just games or are you referring to memorabilia?

    Just games for me. Majority of it is Nintendo and Sega, but I have a little bit of everything.

    I've had great luck with some slide-out plastic organizer bins that I bought from Lowe's. I got some bins that allows me to place them 1 game deep facing upright. Game systems fit as well. I've got each system broken down to their own containers.

    Hmm I like the slide out drawer idea the more I think about it. It may be obsessive, but I also plan to make an excel spreadsheet with everything I own on it and take pictures of the more valuable, collectible or rare items.
