Video collections- tips, questions, ideas

Hi all ,
A slightly different thread from "post your list of matches". I started taping matches with the intent of recording everything but, as VHS died and DVDs took over, and as I've moved, space has become an issue.
How do you manage your video collection? Do you get rid of some matches over time? Do you ever edit matches onto a new tape/DVD so that you only save "the best of"? Even if a match is historic (e.g. a Slam final), do you ever rewatch it and think "I don't want to watch this again, I should record over it or sale/trade it"? Do you ever get rid of a match and later regret it?
I'd be interested to hear what everyone thinks, as I am in the process of cutting down. Also, does anyone have tips on VHS-DVD transfer? Does it matter what "sytem" you use (player) or is it more important to have a quality DVD-R? Which brand of DVD-R is recommended for a permanent collection? Does anyone put matches from VHS/DVD-computer for storage or does that take up too much storage space?
Thanks for all comments .
