Let’s organize! Vinyl record sales soared after the onset of the pandemic and even managed to surpass CD sales for the first time in nearly 20 years. With that in mind, we’ve curated a list of shelves, bookcases, and other storage options that will keep your favorite vinyl records and CDs in one place.

Whether you’re a casual collector or have simply accumulated too many CDs and vinyl (or cassette tapes) over the years, we’re here to help.
