Do I put this in the cellar photo thread? How about the cellar reduction plan thread? Or the WBA thread? What's a person with a buying problem to do?

Jay - Goes in the cellar reduction thread. You do not have a buying problem as there are many open slots in the racks. What gives? Perhaps the buying problem of which you speak is that you are not buying enough.
And what's with the wooden box with the words "père et fils?" Is that really your cellar? Or did Justin Strider Smith have a son?

Well, if you get rid of all of those shippers, oversized wooden boxes, and Cayuse cartons, and consolidate all of that into empty rack spaces and regular wine boxes, you'll have a lot more space. Then you can buy more!

That's more like what I was expecting to see in the show off your cellar thread. I'm working on building racking for my cellar, but in the meantime I have boxes on boxes on boxes that I am sifting through. I feel like a crypt keeper and/or I should be on the hoarders tV show when I go into the cellar looking for a very specific wine that I can't recall where I put it.

It is pretty clear to me that the only answer to the issues raised by this picture is to build a new bigger cellar. Then, you can post a picture of the new cellar in the cellar photo thread and use this picture as the before photo.

There are about a half dozen open slots because I just pulled that many bottles to bring to a bar association dinner. That is all

Those are not empty slots. It is double deep racking !! so there is more leeway and I usually push the bottles all the way back.

I think the OP was meant to inspire some "real cellars of WB" pics that you won't find in a magazine. Here you go. I decided to spend the $$ on the juice instead of the finishing...a decision I may come to regret. And yes, that's a wine.com box smack dab in the middle. Please don't flame me, the good stuff is in the Eurocave.

Jay, you need a smaller buying problem or a bigger drinking problem (said the pot to the kettle).

You want to explain why there is a bottle of Scarecrow with a half-pulled cork in the same room as the water heater? At least my Scarecrow has a place of honor - hidden behind the Cayuse boxes under the Schrader, where it belongs.

Great catch Jay! That’s an empty bottle I keep for sentimental reasons. I aspire to have enough Scarecrow to get lost in my cellar..

The second photo is such a mess, I didn't realize it was sideways until I clicked on it to blow it up. Bravo! But look at all the space you have in the bin on the right (top of photo).

I only put shippers in my cellar when I have no place to empty them.
