    I was lucky enough to get the last Expedit shelves from the supplier I know, (they only do Kallax now) so I have two of these units, plus a smaller 2x2 for when the collection grows bigger. 650 records so far..

    looks great, @reesdog ! I'm looking forward to our move so I can put my expedit (and setup) in a larger room. Mine is upright & I'd never thought of putting it on its side and placing the components on top until I saw those pics. Very cool!
    I LOVE MUSIC.

    Thanks mfc2006, yeah I saw somewhere online with the unit on its side like that, I like it too, great height to have the components at. Apparently theres a slight risk of these toppling over, but I think that's mostly with the bigger 5x5 units not being used correctly. The instructions I got with this shows that its perfectly fine to have it on its side..

    I'm around 3000 records now... I feel it may be time to try and get rid of some, because I am running out of room.

    I periodically get rid of stuff. Ebay it to fund some new stuff. Every so often I get the urge to sell it all.

    I’m about due for a cull. Have some stuff left from the last one, so many singles that I never touch but are a hassle to price and just general trimming the fat of the collection type stuff.

    Need to wipe my Discogs and start from scratch too. I generally get rid of collector stuff and go for solid player copies when quality of reissues allows.

    I just culled the collection in August, but now I need to sell it. 

    While I get less than discos or eBay, part of me just wants to dump stuff at my local and be done with it.

    That's quite a few.  I'm at about 15% of that.

    I stopped keeping a spreadsheet 5 years ago. I was at 2500 then (7” 12” and LPs). I don’t want to know what I have now,

    I've been keeping an inventory on Discogs since the beginning. It's a great tool.

    Wow. I don’t even know if I could imagine having 500 of anything.

    Ive sold around 1000 records over the years when trimming the collection down. The thing I find is that once I have it in my mind that I am going to sell it, I have to, even if its for next to nothing.

    The sad thing is, Im thinking I will be able to tell in the next 10 years whether or not my kids are going to want the collection. For the sake of their finances I suggest they dont collect vinyl. Ive lost a lot of interest in music, collecting and going to concerts. Just getting older I guess. Never thought Id say that. Finding other interests.
