We do. My husband buys CDs the most from other garage sales. Then he downloads them to his Mp3 & we then put them in our own garage sale 🙂 Same with movies. Although there are a few movies I have kept i.e. The Twilight Series, The Pretender, The Fifth Element, the majority we buy for $1, watch at our leisure, then sell them for the same price.

Well, there are certainly advantages to getting physical copies. With something like Netflix, you don't really 'own' anything: you just get access to the shows and movies they give you, and they can take them away whenever they want. Even with something like Steam, you lose all your games if the company ever goes bust. Which they haven't yet, but it is a bit of a worry...

Ya, ownership is a big thing for me.  As all these services raise prices, merge into packages, etc, etc. I just keep watching my media like nothing happened with no fees at all if I don't want to add anything new.

That's the way I feel. Physical copies are yours. Plus, with the CD, DVD, you can take with you & play anywhere even if you don't have the service or even internet connection.

I haven't bought any physical media since we moved 9 years ago. When I realized how much stuff I had to pack or give away, it was way too much so we've been trying to downsize ever since. We don't have as many VHS videos and only had a handful of bluerays anyway. The CDs, wow, we have so many and it's hard to part with that beloved music. I also have cassettes but no player!
