Strategy For Media

February 20, 2009

Sometime soon I’ll be dealing with my boxes of “media” (audio and video cassettes, CD, DVD, etc).  The goal is to reduce the volume to what will fit inside one banker’s box.  I’ve been avoiding this task because it will be a big job.  I know because this has happened before.

The boxes will be opened and there will be tapes I haven’t seen in ten years.  Looking at them will surely set me off on a trip down memory lane.  I’ll spend all day trying to organize them into categories, while playing a few of the ones without labels to see what’s on them.  Then at the end of the day, I’ll get tired and overwhelmed by the task and just scoop them all back into the boxes.

There must be a better way.  If I approach the job with a strategy, it could go faster.  For example if a tape is not labeled it’s trash.  Get a cassette holder for my car — keep however many will fit in the holder.  Any extra must be given away.  If it’s a recording of something I did, then digitize it, burn some CD’s and toss the cassette.  If it’s a copy of an album…  not sure.
