The Saga of the Manga Bin

I accumulate manga. As one series can go into 20 books, storage is a big problem of course. My bookshelves were crowded, so I went to the manga bin. How it looked at first:

Mostly, I threw manga I had read into this plastic tub. It kept the manga mostly corralled, but some pages were folded and it was hard to find the exact volume I wanted.

It took me 30 minutes to clean out the manga bin to create the above neater manga bin. It has less storage, but it is easier to view the titles.

I need to do that with my books. I'm quickly running out of shelf space. The clear bins look like a good alternative.

My daughter is a Manga fan. I know her shelves get like that too. We can't get enough!

Yea, with books you always don't have enough space. I've been clearing things out, and using the library[to read FMA 6-18], but my favorites are still usually the longer series.
