because it's got 419 items on it?!? Most of which I will never buy <sniff>

I'm thinking I'll split it into categories - DVDs, books etc...

That is some going! I expect if you've got that many items a lot of them will have been discontinued, so you can delete those for a start.

Nope I've scrolled through I do this when I'm bored and they are all still there...

I did have it all on about 5 different lists - kids stuff, reading list etc... then I got annoyed and just moved them all onto one. But maybe that was a bad idea! To be fair there are lots of sort-of-duplicates - things like all the DVDs in a series, or different versions of the same thing.

I find it strangely satisfying to look through hmm blush if I had any less self control I'd have spent a fortune by now!

I'm weird aren't I. Strange thing is hardly any of it is stuff for me - most of it's for the DCs and DH, I love finding things they'd like.

I agree... and procrastinating waiting pays off too. Particularly when it comes to Disney movies and their damn 'vault'! I've had Fantasia and Alice in Wonderland on there for ages, really expensive as they were 'locked' for the moment... then they came out earlier this year so I preordered them at a great price and actually nearly cried with excitement blush

Wish I'd been so proactive with Snow White (not one of my favourites, but DD had latched on to all the princess stuff... ugh) - it was there for under a tenner and now it's more like twenty <fume> so I don't think I'll bother!

Oops I misremembered - it is actually 463!

Blimey! I've never heard of it - quite glad I haven't if that's how much it'd cost to satisfy my nostalgia need.

I have LOADS of nostalgic stuff on mine - lots of old cartoons. We've actually decided to buy a multi-region DVD player (we need a new one anyway) because some of them are only available on import blush

Anyway, I've mostly finished it now. Divided into 'DH' (so he knows not to look at it!), 'DCs' (everything relating to them, this is by far the biggest list thanks to all the picture books and DVDs), 'Entertainment' (DVDs, CDs, Wii games), 'Books' and 'Random'.

There is still some stuff in Random which I am sure fits into another category but I can't figure out which one blush
