Do you keep DVD/CD cases for Movie and Music?

I am going to move and I noticed I have too many DVDs/CDs (Movie and Music respectively). For music CDs, I have already put them in the thick CD holder. I have not yet done for DVDs (I bought the holder already). Do you keep the DVD/CD cases with you after you organize them?

I have all of my DVDs in Case Logic leather binders. They work great. They protect the DVDs and they look really nice (easy to clean too)

i as well keep the my dvds in a protective case. for a student they are a great space saver. when i go home on breaks i just bring the dvd boxes with me and put them on the shelf. for some reason a dvd without its box is kinda weird to me.

I keep the cases, I rip them into iTunes then put the CDs / DVDs back in their boxes put them in a pile somewhere. They get lost, but at lest when I find them I know they will be in perfect condition.

Thanks for the comments. So there are more keepers for CD / DVD caes.

But, if you have to re-located to an overseas location, would you pack them and ship them to your new place? Those CD cases could be heavy and the shipping cost can not be cheap.

I've had good success with DiscSox http://www.discsox.com. The DJ sleeves allow for all the stuff in the CD jewel box to be stored with the CD in MUCH less weight and space.

My CD collection now lives in a series of boxes ~2 cubic feet whereas before it was an entire bookshelf. (Of course the content is in iTunes, on my iPod, ...)

DVDs are still in their original cases.

I keep all my CD/DVD's in their original cases on bookshelves. In the case of CD's I rip them to my computer then after I read the liner notes a few times the CD goes on the shelf for storage.

Yes I keep them all, I have a bunch of CDs stacked in this tall tower. That tower's growth has dwindled though since I buy most of my music on the iTMS now. As for DVDs, I keep them as well. My collecetion of DVDs is admittedly not very vast, so I don't have spacial problems.

I'd advise just throwing them all in a box, put them up in the attic or whatever and save them in case you decide to want them back.

Same.

I couldn't imagine putting my DVDs into a case. I had done that with my CDs and the book/case was stolen. All of the CDs there in one easy to carry case; not good.

I shipped my CDs when I moved overseas. I wasn't in any hurry to get them (all of the music was ripped onto my server), so I sent them via sea mail and got them about a month later. (This was shipping from Australia to America.) In retrospect, I could've taken the box of CDs with me to the airport and checked it as excess luggage, since the fee for that isn't terribly bad (and not that much more than what I paid for sea mail), and I wouldn't've had to wait a month to receive them.

I decided to get rid of the empty CD cases. With DVD tiles over 120, I came to the conclusion I simply don't have the space anymore.

What did you decide to store them in now that you eliminated the boxes?
