    Currently I have jump up/dancefloor at the front, promo's separating them in the middle and liquid/rollers at the back but i'm wondering if this is the best way to have them.

    Just looking for some ideas in how to pack my record box in a way that optimises my performance in record selection. How do you guys do it?

    teases
    new (i.e recently bought, stuff i'm feeling)
    old (i.e stuff that never leaves the box)
    eps/lps

    seperated by cardboard divders.
    normally take all the eps out, and the teasers. leave them resting against either side of my bag. maybe take a few tunes out that i definatly know i want to play and leave them resting on the front.
    then it's lucky dip into the bag for the rest!

    No filing system, just keep my most played tunes in their own crate ready for taking out or whatever.

    Like gcurtis mine aren't in the right sleeves or anything, I just dont have time when I gotta get the next vinyl cued and ready within 4 bars!

    i do it by record label, once i organised where the labels are, its easy to dip into my crates get exactly what i want real quick.

    I keep all my tunes in white sleeves,

    Newly brought promos/tunes and stuff I'm really feeling at the front
    Liquid/Rollers
    Jump Up/RAM/Dancefloor
    Harder dirtier stuff
    Teasers at the back

    Cardboard dividers is a good call Riisu, might have to do that one day. (y)

    Alphabetical order by artist, when i first did this i knew exactly what tune i wanted and could find so easily, made my mixes improve loads.

    got do this with my cds some time ... hmm

    Most of my stuff is in white sleeves... some isn't, the rest are in their wrong sleeves...

    I basically have a pile of records that I'm feeling at the moment that's a mix of new stuff, favorites and classics, then everyhting else is just in random order in crates... DnB and non DnB records are separated though... I probably have as many non DnB records as I do DnB, if not more...
