Your movie library isn’t what it used to be. Even though you might think movie night is exciting, your friends are starting to tire from the same old movies again and again. Just because you like to watch the same movies more than once doesn’t necessarily mean your friends and family do. You need to start getting smarter about your movies, without having to take up a lot of time or money. Here are some signs that your movie library needs help – and what you can do about it.
You Watch the Same Movie Every Night
While it might not seem possible, there are many people who truly watch the same movie again and again. If this sounds like the case in your movie library, you need to rethink this habit. Though this movie might be good, eventually you will tire of it and then you’ll be left without anything to watch. Instead, it’s a good idea to switch things up by ordering movies online or through a local video store to see what you like and whether you can fit this into your budget.
IDEA: Have a movie swap night. Encourage all of your friends to bring over their favorite movies and you can swap movies to see what others might like from your collection, while also expanding your horizons.
You Can’t Find New Movies
You end up choosing the same movie free movies again and again because you can’t find the movies you do have. When this is the case with your movie library, you need to think about software that can help you get organized and stay organized. That way, you can reach for what you want and not just for what you can find.
IDEA: Invest in movie library software that helps you see what you own and where it is. This only takes a few moments to set up and it can help you learn more about your movie collection.
You Don’t Know What to Buy
Sometimes, you stick with the same movies in your movie library because you just don’t know what to buy. If your collection was organized, you would see that you have some movies that are missing their sequels or related movies. Again, getting organized is the best way to combat the problem of not knowing what to buy. You can then keep a list of what you want to purchase or what you want to receive as gifts from others.
IDEA: Find out what you own and then start looking to see what’s missing from your collection. You might find that you are missing a certain movie that’s been done by your favorite actor or actress.
Your movie library doesn’t have to be a burden. Instead, you need to look for ways to enhance what you already have, enjoy what you buy, and then add to your collection as needed. You don’t have to be stuck watching the same movie as everyone else – and nor does your family.
