My dh is a huge film fan. He owns so many dvds and blu rays I couldn't even count. We have about 6 shelves worth, as well as two big bookcases.
About 18 months ago we were abit short of money and he decided to sort them out to be able to sell them. He took about 250, which are duplicates or things he's never going to watch again. 18 months later, they're still there, just piled up on the floor at the end of our bed. He maintains that he's going to watch them, but I think he just can't bring himself to sell them or get rid. I understand to an extent, as they are his pride and joy, but they're such an eyesore and I think that I'm reasonable enough allowing such a big collection take place in our bedroom. We're getting new furniture delivered on Thursday and I'm desperate to tidy and sort the bedroom but he won't entertain the idea of doing something with them, saying they're not a problem because they're stacked neatly. When it became clear he wasn't going to get rid of them I told him to buy some shelves. He's yet to do so. Nor has he watched a single film or TV series from that pile.
Wibu to tell him to move them or I'm giving them away?

Could you box them up and put them in the loft or shed until he forgets about them and you can chuck them while you are sorting out your new furniture?

We don't have a loft (we moved into a new eco house with solar panels so we were told we weren't allowed to use it), our house has barely any storage at all. At the moment we have about 3 storage boxes just piled up because we have nowhere to put them until this furniture is delivered

Pile them up on his side of the bed?

Yes bag them up and put them out of sight somewhere. That would drive me mad!
If they're his pride and joy they shouldn't be piled up on the bedroom floor, unwatched. Sounds like he cba to do anything with them!

That would drive me mad.

Buy him an external hard drive or NAS and get him to scan them in. Or put them in his wardrobe.
