What to do with old CDs?

For the past few years my family has been downsizing with some goals in mind: having fewer things, living in smaller, more efficient housing and traveling a bit more.

So in an era when my entire legally-purchased music collection fits easily onto one 3.5″ hard drive, why must I continue lugging around two moving boxes containing the original CDs? Is there a more reasonable solution for proof-of-purchase, perhaps a disk-shredding service that can provide a valid certificate of destruction?

I’m curious to know what others have done. This issue may ultimately go away as more people purchase their music online.
