The Great VHS Cull

Goodwill still accepts donations of VHS videotapes, so I’m bringing in 40 tapes this morning. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, too. I have over 100 VHS videotapes I don’t watch anymore that need to be donated. They’re horror movies, mostly, but also a lot of mainstream films I enjoyed like Goodfellas  and Schindler’s List. This is going to clear out a lot of room in the closet where I’ve been storing them!

It’s funny, looking over all my VHS tapes, I realize I only watched most of them once. Kind of a waste of money and space. But I was big into collecting videos for a long time. I’m not sure why. Psychological reasons? I’m far less concerned with collecting these days. It’s a money issue, and a storage space issue, and just not as much of a compulsion.

But you can’t sell VHS tapes these days. No one wants ’em. So it’s off to Goodwill with them!
