How often do you go to the movies? If you’re like me, that would be about once every few years or so. However, I still get to see movies that I love.

For starters, I figured out how many kinds of movies were used in my home. There are some that I enjoy and some for the kids. Of course, we have movies that are my husband’s particular favorites, too. Once I had established some ground rules, I was able to move forward with a plan.

Next, I assigned each group a color. I listed all of the movies in alphabetical order so I could easily find any movie I was looking for. This will take some time, but when you are done, it is easy to add or take away according to how you buy or give away some of your stock.
After listing all the movies, I created a color-code at the top of the page, like this:
