Tuesday Tip: Clean out VHS Tapes
I've been thinking about this for a long time but haven't been able to bring myself to do it. I was reading Better Homes and Gardens on my last car trip and they had a quote from Clutterdiet.com.
"If you no longer own a VCR, get rid of those VHS tapes. Donate or dispose of them (greendisk.com will take 20 pounds of your technotrash for $7 plus shipping). Replace favorite titles on DVD."
Ugh. I have boxes and boxes of my favorite movies on VHS tapes taking up valuable landscape in my basement and no VCR to play them on. I shudder to think of how much money I spent on those over the years. But, the time has come. I need to get 'em outta here.
I don't think I necessarily agree iwth the part that calls for replacing favorite titles on DVD. I'll probably just use Netflix if I want to see them - that'll really decrease the clutter.
Am I the only one who is still desperately clinging to their old VHS tapes??
