Hi there and welcome friends!
Today I thought I would go over how I organize my video game collection and give you guys some tips on how to organize and optimize what space you have, especially if it is a little bit of space like I am (Seeing as I am confined to one room).
I personally asked myself what I wanted to display most and what I wanted within reach (or close reach). I also wanted everything to look good as well as be close by. I decide I didn’t need my PC games super close by but I did want them to be displayed somehow. I found it important for my GameCube, Wii, Wii U, and handheld games to be displayed prominently as these were the things that would be growing the most as well as what I would be reaching for the most. I wanted all my Sony systems to be close by but not necessarily the focal point of my display.
I personally like to try to use every inch of display space possibly while still being able to see everything. I like to fill in the row on the shelf first and then do columns on top of my rows. This way you can still see everything but you get more on one shelf.
I will also “hide” some of my games.
I put my PS3 games in these lockers because they’re great for storage. They don’t take up much room and I can fit a lot in them. Plus they are perfect sized for PS3 game cases. And I don’t really use my PS3 as much as my other systems so having them nearby if I want them is great but not having them within reach just makes sense for me.
I have all my cased PC games in my closet to have them all where I can admire them but not to take up “prime real estate” because I just never need to grab them because of everything being loaded up on my computers and discs just aren’t really necessary anymore.
I also will “hide” some of my games because I have a lot of “pretties” (like my wonderful Slytherin crest). I like to display my pretty things but I also need places to store my games. So a perfect compromise for me is to have all my PS1 games in one of my organizer cubes and then have some of my pretty display items in front. 🙂
Making sure my games are in alphabetical order is also key to keeping my collection organized and looking good. It helps me keep track of where things are, what I have and still need, as well as what I have lent out to friends.
Just remember above all to have fun with it. I always enjoy moving things around and organizing things differently. Especially when I get new pretty things.
Let me know what you do to organize your collections! Feel free to leave pictures too! I always need inspiration. 🙂
Stay classy and sassy guys ❤
