i used to keep things that mean a lot to me, like letters even though i don't know who gave it. i started to keep letters when i was just young. i also love to make cards, i don't know i just want to keep it even friendly letters or all kinds of letters i read them whenever i have time i put them in an album and i have been keeping them for maybe 6 years. am i old fashioned? how about you do keep kove letters or cards?

Hi augmae I have one shoes box and I fill it with old love letters, cards, etc. Even I still keep the wrapping paper from the gift I received on my birthday last year. I still have a small music box given by a boy who love me 8 years ago (when I and he in 4th elementary) Christmas card, greeting and birthday card, all of them. Guess I[m more old fashioned than you. I think, maybe know they mean nothing to us, but in the future, when we grow older, we will see them as precious things, full of memory of our young-time. That's it, I save it now for myself in the future

Thanks too for this nice discussion I always say to myself that I save the wrapping paper because it still in good condition and I'll use it later in the next time..but I know the fact that I won't use them, I just love to keep them and remember the sender

I have a collection of letters and cards from my family and friends since I was small.Some of the people who wrote them like myt grand parents and father are not alive but i have all the letters that they send on me and sometimes I read them to rememeber the relation between us. After that came age of progress and development. Now I have folders of all my friends in my mail box and I have a dedicated gmail id where I keep all the good ones on me. I love sending cards to verybody but get a very few myself

Yes, I do. I'm a very sentimental person. I still keep old love letters from my ex-boyfriends. I kept them on a pretty box with other memorabilias and pictures. It's fun to read them after all these years, when I have finally moved on and can just laugh about it. :-)

I also keep love letters and cards given to me. I am a sentimental person and an old-fashioned one just like you. I like it when people give me these things rather than material things because at least with cards and letters, they will never be gone. Like you, I also reread letters and cards once in a while. They never fail to make me smile and brighten up my day. I put my letters and cards in big shoe boxes.
