With the CDs now exceeding 2000 (not including burns and the majority of Various Artists/Compilations still be be counted) space is very much at a premium.
I am trying to be more discerning with the ones that I am bringing in and it is maybe time to consider a one in one out policy.
The thought of getting rid of any brings me out in hives but realistically there is a fair amount of dross on the shelves which I never listen to.
I've made a start - albeit a very small one with 3 CDs from the rock/pop section going to charity( three new ones came in the other day from my most recent charity shop excursion!). Had I got them more recently they would not be keepers. I'm getting slightly better at letting go.
There is maybe one song from each that I might listen to again but I have copied the entire albums onto the hard drive - just in case! They can go eventually when it gets clogged up.
It's a big step! And so it is goodbye to Bachman Turner Overdrive - The Collection, Babybird - Ugly Beautiful and New Radicals - Maybe You've Been Brainwashed Too. These were all charity shop purchases from 2013 and probably haven't been listened to since.. They have now been expunged.
