Digitize Your CD Collection

Is your CD collection collecting dust? Tired of looking at them and having them take up space in your home? Are you continuously asking yourself why you're even keeping these anymore? In today's advanced technological world the way we listen to music has completely changed. Being a HUGE music lover I never in a million years thought I'd ever be saying this... but, do we really even need our CDs anymore? My answer is no. I think it's finally time to let the CDs go. The best way to do this is to digitize your CD collection by transferring it to iTunes. There are many other software programs for organizing and digitizing your music, however, I prefer iTunes. It's free and really easy to use. This can be a really big project, especially if your CD collection is large, like mine. So the best way to tackle this enormous task is to upload 3 CDs a day. It'll take just a few minutes each day. Follow this schedule diligently and before you know it, it will be done. One very important thing to remember if you choose to go this route is to make sure you backup your computer regularly. It would be a shame to have a computer disaster and lose it all.

What do you do with your CDs after transferring them to a digital format? You could sell them at a local music store or online, give them to a friend or to a local charity that accepts CDs, give them to your library, or simply recycle them. Whatever method you choose, I highly suggest keeping at least your absolute favorites and storing them in a CD organizer for your car.
