Do You Hold On to Old VHS Tapes?

It may be nearly Fall, but I've been doing a ton of Spring cleaning of my own and recently came across my stash of VHS tapes from high school and college. Funny enough, I haven't had a VCR in years — but two years ago most of you said you still had one. I'm not sure why I'm holding on to the tapes; nostalgia, maybe? I keep telling myself I'll convert them to digital format at some point.

Until then, they're still stashed in their box out of view of visitors in my living room. To be honest, I might be embarrassed if anyone walked in the room and saw a huge collection of VHS tapes. What about you? Do you hold on to old tapes, or have you gotten rid of them?

I still have a couple dozen I haven't bought the DVDs of, especially the Disney tapes. My poor VCRs are just sitting aside, at least their not blinking 12:00

Ashbeeeee.. don't hold on to them for too long. The quality does not improve with the years. lol I don't have any any more. I hardly ever purchased them anyway, most of what I had were things that I had recorded off the TV. It's easier to get that stuff on a DVD at the library now.

I have a VHS/DVD combo player. I also still have my VHS tapes, and I still watch them. No point in upgrading them to DVD if I don't have to.

When my last VCR died a couple of years ago I gave the majority of my tapes away.

Only my faves and some classics. I don't have anything to watch them on, but just the tapes themselves bring back memories!

I still have a few, but I'm tech savvy enough to have converted them all to dvd (and on a back up hard drive). I guess it helps that I work in a recording studio and specialize in doing that for audio already... needless to say, the quality is pretty good.

gotta hold on too that old analog stuff for the day copyright prevents you from enjoying anything without paying again and again.
