Buying LPs that is. I've finally run out of room. I've never had a large collection, about 850 prior to the 'superior' sound of CDs in the mid-80's. I gave about 700 away but started collecting again in 2009. I now have around 1,500 but that's it. I have no more room. I'm going to have to stick with CDs and the storage space for those is rapidly shrinking. I take all the CDs in jewel cases out and place in clear poly-pockets, I can store 4 CDs to the width of one jewel case. The shelves still look good with digi-pack CDs about every 3 CDs. The box sets are on separate shelving, same story there. I will have to keep clear of record shops because I can't bloody help myself!
