Somewhere over 400 empty CD jewel cases; next to them, in the box, are the CDs and accompanying artwork (both insert and back tray card), in individual polyethylene sleeves.
That’s A through most of P. There are still a couple hundred CDs left to go (I have lots of S and T bands).
Yes, that box is motherfucking heavy. The box of 1000 empty sleeves I bought probably weighed 15 pounds by itself.
Our local landfill recycles jewel cases (or they claim to, at least). So, next week, or maybe the week after that, I’ll throw all the cases into a big bag and haul them away.
The sleeves are soft and quite slippery, but they do OK when stored vertically, (and they’re designed so you can read the tray card spines on the edge). When they get to the new house, I think I’m going to build a new rack for them. Or, maybe just shove them in a chest of some kind.
