Movie Madness

Ever since my roommate’s daughter and her boyfriend have started coming over to “hang out” there seems to be stuff going missing. I have a great collection of movies on VHS and DVD, so I decided to make a list of all the titles to help keep track of what I have. Might get even more ambitious and list the actors, give them a category, rate them . . . . . wait a minute . . . . . nah. Just making the list of titles took several hours.

The cool thing is that I made the list in Excel from what was on the shelves, and then had the spreadsheet sort it alphabetically. Then I went back and put the DVDs in alphabetical order based on the spreadsheet. Now I should be able to tell pretty easily what is missing or what new titles I should go shopping for!

Found a couple “oldies but goodies” with their wrappers still intact, so with the bad weather outside it looks like tonight is a popcorn and movie night for me.
