Spring Cleaning and Organizing: Organizing CDs

This one's for you dad! 

Every day I walk past this piece of furniture in my house. 

It is located at the bottom of the stairs so it is constantly in my line of sight and it wouldn't bother me so much if I didn't know for sure what I would find inside it...

CDs. All unorganized.

At one point I went through this cabinet and alphabetized everything, but of course my parents aren't quite as OCD as I am, and have no problem putting a CD back where it doesn't belong. =)

I decided that since I'm in spring cleaning mode anyways, I might as well take some time to get these CDs organized and back in alphabetical order.

I took every single CD out of every last drawer. I laid them all into piles based on the first letter of the last name of the artist, or by the band name. There are many ways you could organize a pile of CDs like this, however I personally think alphabetical order is the easiest for most people to understand, and what I prefer to use the majority of the time.

I placed them all back in nicely and noticed that my parents own quite a few duplicate CDs…Oh well, it's their collection!

I also wanted to mention that while they have a massive CD collection, I actually don't have any CDs at all! About five years ago I took every CD I owned and transferred all of the songs onto my computer. Now, I still have all the music that I want in one place without the actual physical space being taken up. I much prefer to have the tracks in my iTunes, rather then on a rack somewhere!

How do you organize your music? Have you held onto your physical CDs or is everything on your computer now?
