I have done that, yes; not this year anyway. I have done this recently though - and those CDs have been listened to on CD players (car stereo mostly) - but the usual order of operations is to also rip the CDs to MP3s so they can be stored on my phone. But typically, I buy digitally on Amazon Music and they give me handy MP3s already that I can back up (smug face).

I get the idea of backing up digital stuff, especially if it's expensive, and I am totally on board with that but space - physical and storage - is finite so if a digital service shuts down and I lose some cheap stuff, I'm willing to take that loss, especially since I am becoming less of a read/watch whatever multiple times.
The last CD i bought was used Super Eurobeat CD's at AWA, since it's not like I can go into a physical location and get those. There's a huge MEGA link that someone housed all of SEB up too like 247 I think if anyone wants the digital versions of that, but having physical copies of them to pop in your CD player in your vehicle is a thing I still like to do. Oh yea, there was these single Victory Gundam CD's Retro Joe's had that I got.
