Do you own CDs anymore (in this day and age of iTunes)? If so, do you actually listen to them? If you got rid of them, what did you do with them?
This is a question that was inspired by Jack pulling 10s of CDs out of our CD bookcase.
We have CDs, a couple hundred of them (I still have cassette tapes and record albums too). The CDs are mostly housed in a bookcase thing I bought years ago. I listen to a very small handful of them. I've burned some to MP3s and due to copyright, feel the need to hold on to those particular CDs so I have proof of ownership. I'd love to get rid of at least 100 of my CDs, but hate the idea of just giving them away after the money invested in them. But I don't see much market for CDs these days.
Um, my DH is obsessed with having the physical copy of CDs. So we download a little, and have transferred most to our computer or DH's MP3 player ... but we have hundreds of cds floating around. Most are out of the cases and into cd binders. We then boxed up the cases and put them in our attic. We keep a full (250ish) cd binder in the car and listen to those in the car.

I still have a good amount of cds but do not listen to them that much. We do still buy them but only for the car mostly.

We have some, but not a lot. We don't buy cds anymore, but I have recently bought some kids song ones for Miles. And we don't own ipods, I don't even understand them. We mainly listen to the radio.
i use CD's in the car. (well when i have a car that works and has a radio lol) and i also have an older huge stereo that holds 5 disks. i wont buy a cd these days unless i know i am absolutely in love with most of the songs on it, because if its just a couple then i can just d/l them.
when i got rid of some of the CD's i no longer listened to some years back (ok like 8 years lol) i hung them on the wall in my room as a wall art/mirror type deco thing. or you could always find a way to do something crafty with them!!
I have an ipod shuffle but only use it when I mow the lawn. I am hoping to utilize it more when I start working out again.
As for my cds, I only have a handful because my cd cases were stolen from our car a couple of years ago. I am pretty sure the stupid thief had a hard time selling them though because I don't imagine there is much of a market for Madonna, Rent- The Broadway Recordings, and New Kids on the Block greatest hits. LOL Anyway, I have maybe 20 or so that I listen to occasionally. I downloaded a lot of my fave songs from my cd and made mix cds. Those are my fave to pop in while cleaning the house.
As far as the car, I don't really listen to the radio or cds. I am too busy trying to listen to my GPS.
