Despite the rise of digital entertainment, many people still own physical copies of their favorite movies, TV shows, music, and video games. To pack these items for storage or moving, start by separating them into stacks for easy handling.

Next, line the box with folded packing paper to provide extra protection. Pack the items spine-up to fit more into the box, starting with larger-sized items and ending with smaller-sized ones.

Fill any gaps with crushed packing paper to ensure a snug fit. If you need to add another layer, use a folded sheet of packing paper to separate the layers.


When packing CDs and DVDs, it is important to consider the weight of the boxes. CD cases are made of denser plastic than DVD cases, so it is advisable to use a small box for CDs and a medium-sized box for DVDs.

Also, it is crucial to ensure that the box is not packed too heavy to move, even if you need to move it to the other side of the room. Once you have packed the box with CD or DVD cases, fill any remaining space with scrunched-up packing paper to prevent it from caving in when other boxes are stacked on top of it.

To support the weight, it is necessary to tape the top and bottom of the box properly, using two to four layers of tape on each side if needed, and not simply folding the flaps over each other without using tape.

It is important to label each box with the corresponding room it should be placed in at the new home. Additionally, make sure to list the contents of each box, such as CDs or DVDs.

For any boxes containing collector’s sets, it is recommended to label them as “FRAGILE” to indicate that extra care should be taken when handling them.
