We use videos behind our videos (duplicate copies of titles) saves alot of space.

Hi, we are low budget and just use shoe boxes or other similar size boxes
behind our videos.

Hi all
I have a question. I am in process of reconfiguring my shelves so our
vhs tapes will stand vertically rather than horizontally. (I read in
Gary's book that that is better.) The shelves however are deep and to
keep the tapes close to the edge, I was going to get some styrofoam to
make spacers to put behind the tapes. Is there any problem using
styrofoam this way, it doesn't offgas anything that will deteriorate my
ancient VHS collection?
