I have saved all the cards I have ever received from people in probably the last 15 years. Does any one else do this?

yes I haver boxes of them! I guess it's because I save everything! I am a bit of a pack rat! My kids will love it when their older My mom kept everything and gave us OUR BOX when we moved out it was great to see all the cards and letters we never read when we were younger. I also had school papers, clothing from when I was a baby! Great stuff!

I don't... I am a terrible person when it comes to keeping stuff like that! I think I will however keep the things my children give me so that I can give them a box (like flabgirl said). That sounds like a really cool idea!!

I used to save them all but they got to be so many that I just had to get rid of some of them. I now only keep the sentimental ones. I keep all the ones that I have received from my husband and my sons and daughter, not forgetting all the ones which my grandchildren made for me. I have hundreds of these, as they make one for me each time they come to visit me.

Yes I keep old greeting cards but I keep selected items only, I have things back from my childhood :) I keep a lot of old and useless stuff but I'm a nostalgic person :)

I save a lot of them, not all of them though. For instance, I saved all the cards I got from my babyshower, from my first mother's day, my 21st birthday, my 16th birthday, and my son's first birthday, christmas and other holiday cards. I can't imagine how many cards you must have if you've saved them all from the past 15 years!! I'm enough of a packrat to begin with that I don't have the room for all my cards :)

I save mine also. I save them all in shoe boxes. then every once in awhile I go through them. it brings back memories of the time. also my Mom always sent us cards and she is no longer here so now I still have the cards she sent to look at from time to time.

I like more the conventional greeting cards. What's more if I receive an electronic greeting card I can not be happy at all. I feel that the person who sent it to me was too lazy to go to a shop, and choose a real one. A virtual greeting card means only virtual feeling to me. Anyway what should I do with an electronic flower, I can not put it into a vase, I would even like a hand-drawing flower, because I know the person took the rest to make me glad. So dear my friends please do not send electronic greeting cards to me, I delete them as soon as I receive them.

No unfortunately i don't. Each year I toss them out. The only ones I keep are the photo type cards of family and friends, the rest are thrown away.

I used to save all the cards that I got. But I'm trying to organize and simplify my life, so I'm starting to throw cards out. Of course, the really special ones from special people and family, I can't throw out no matter what my husband says.
