What's the best way I can get rid of VHS tapes?
We have a closet full of VHS tapes, want to get them out as part of Spring-cleaning. We don't own a VHS tape-player anymore, obviously. All suggestions are welcomed.
There are people out there that collect everything so if you really have a lot, the first thing I'd do is post them on eBay as a collection. If that doesn't work there's always craigslist or a yard sale. If you don't care about getting anything out of them there's always Goodwill or a local church charity. My final option is, I think, my best. Find a VHS player in good shape and keep the tapes.
Hi Cecelia, thanks so much for your answer. I will definitely use your ideas for getting rid of the VHS tapes after I convert them to DVDs. The tapes take up too much space, I'm keeping up with technology a bit slow when it comes to storing movies.
Cissy has an excellent answer. If there are some movies you love, you can get a VHS to DVD converter. I hear they don't cost a much and are pretty easy to do. Plus a DVD/VCR combo
I agree Cecelia's answers are excellent. I guess we can start by getting a VHS to DVD converter, thanks for the idea. And then I'll do a couple of the suggestion Cecelia has given.
I converted about 450 of my VHS tapes to DVD then just ran out of steam. I would suggest pulling your favorites and convert them first. I started at "A" and still had some of my favorites in the "To Do" pile when I gave up.
Yea, I will convert the favorites, and then have my daughter to convert the movies they like. And for fun, might keep a couple tapes to remember how they look in the future. My uncle used to remind of how he would play 8-track tapes in his car.

I am contemplating a video hub or two. I say 'contemplating,' because it all depends on whether I can successfully learn the proper formatting, and upload process. This digital editing is new to me, and I...

I know this wouldn't be a full time job. Some places offer this already but if you had someone who would locally convert your old VHS home videos to DVD or a file online, would you be interested?
