    Yup.  I didn't throw them out.  :P  Seriously, they're in a box in the basement.  Have you thought about slicing the front off the back and putting them in an album, with both the front and inside on the same page?

    I've heard of people hole punching them and connecting them with binder rings. 

    I threw away all the ones that were just signed and didn't have any sentiment written in besides what was already printed on the card. I kept the rest and they just sit in a box. They have made two moves with us and coming up on a third, and I kind of want to throw them out, but I probably won't.

    I saved them all. I have them in a small shopping bag in the office. 

  • I'm pretty sure I threw mine out, but I did keep them for a year or two.

    But then, my wedding dress is in the same cardboard box my mom shipped it back to me in (I got married OOT).  So I wasn't the most sentimental person about my wedding stuff, lol.

  • Same as most PP's.  I threw out the ones ppl didn't write in and planned to scrapbook or at least bind the others somehow.  We'll be married 4 years in July and moved 5 times since we got married....they're still in a box. 
  • Mine are still in our card box...  But arguably they aren't in the way and our card box was meant to be turned essentially into an end-table.    

    Best idea may be to get one of the smaller size binders and put them in page protectors that you can pull them out and look at in the future.

  • Mine are all in a manila envelope x 1.5 years and likely will stay that way for a while. I'm thinking about photographing them and then tossing but I'm not there yet.
