What DVD(s) have you bought lately…Keepers or trade?

So, I love going through past threads on here! Due to being enabled by these threads (thank you all but you’re killing me financially!) and wanting outdoor workouts, I have recently bought:

Denise Austin’s Totally Firm

Denise Austin Sizzler

Madeline Lewis Get Moving

Ellen Barefoot Bikini Ready Fast

Ellen Barrett Slim and Sleek Fast

Jessica Smith Strength and Balance (part of Walk On 3 DVD Super Set)

Jessica Smith Walking for Weight loss, Wellness, and Energy

Beach Babe by Tone it Up

Tamilee Webb Defy Gravity

This one that is not outdoors: Kathy Smith Functionally Fit Lower Body Firming

Prior to that I bought 6 Firm workouts which I am willing to trade that have either never been used or used only one time:

Total Body Time Crunch

Ultimate Fat Burning Workout

Cardio Sculpt Blaster

Body Sculpt Blaster

Cardio Sculpt Fusion

Total Body Toner

What have you bought? Are they keepers or up for trade?

So far, I have bought the following dvds this year:
  • TAF Workout DVD Trish Andrews
  • Kettlebell Boomer
  • Runner’s World 30 Day Challenge
  • Bodywisdom Yoga for Strength and Flexibility 3 dvd set

I have not had the opportunity to try them as either (1) the require a level of lunging or impact that I am unable to do at this time, as I'm having knee issues or (2) I just received the dvd. Right now, I'm doing a Margaret Richard rotation for 8 weeks so it may take me awhile to get to them anyway. Right now, they are all keepers, although the Bodywisdom Yoga is reacquired.

I bought Cathe's first 2 PHA workouts and I like them both. There aren't very many total body workouts from Cathe that are not super high rep.

I've been on a bit of a buying spree since January. I've found most of them for great deals, some used. I have acquired a few Classical Stretch seasons, CS/Essentrics titles like Ultimate Stretch and Pain Relief Workouts, Rebalance Connective Tissue, etc. Jessica Smith Feel Good Fusion, one of her stretching DVDs, her older set of three walks (dance, stride and strength and barefoot fusion). Ellen Barrett 7 day transformation and PL&C (those were a great deal from a Facebook group). I'm kinda collecting what I wanted back in the day but couldn't afford as I get the opportunity. At the moment I'm only doing CS/ Essentrics though.

In the past year I think I only bought Cathe's Boss Bands DVDs. Nothing else for at least couple of years....I think. Yes, Boss Bands are keepers but then, I rarely if ever, get rid of any of my DVDs. FYI, I still have my classic Firm VHS. I don't own a VHS player.

I just bought a vhs player off eBay in hopes of digitizing my old Firms. If I’m unsuccessful at least I have something by which I can watch the OOP Firms.

Keepers just purchased:

Tracie Long Reboot 1 and 2
Total Body Time Crunch (pink Firm)

I’ve recently been on a massive, massive exercise dvd buying spree. I cut all streaming though. I was spending $50 a month on fitness streaming services, did the math, and I’ll be coming out way ahead with workouts I can hold in my hands. those $1 Barre3 dvds I acquired are an example.

You have to make a mess, sometimes, to clean it up.
