    I've just finished college for good but have loads of notes left. I don't just want to chuck them away because i've worked really hard this past year (and slightly less the year before but that doesn't matter!)

    So what should i do? - I have litterally a stack 3 Yellow Phone Books HIGH! :eek:

    Just keep them in a box(s) in your wardrobe or attic or something.

    2) photocopy the essentials and sell them some financial reward for allll ur hard work
    3) uh.. bonfires can be really satisfying for some reason, jks :rolleyes:

    I just keep them in random places, hidden from view of course. Can't bring myself to chuck them out either.

    But watching them burn is so satisfying And I had 6 subjects, so I helped contribute to global warming significantly :p:

    Wow that's a well good idea! I'm tempted to burn my notes to restore my karma, but knowing how unlucky i am if i burn my notes then i'll prolly fail all my A-levels and have to retake :damnmate:

    Well I chucked mine in the recycling bin. I wanted to burn them but wasn't allowed :mad:
    If you really want to keep them you could shove them in the loft or something? Maybe only keep a bit of each? I'm sure theres something that could go to minimise the load? The I kept of mine is my chemistry notes which may be useful at uni.

    In the words of an ex-teacher, my notes show my 'laziness and immaturity'

    .....teachers, what do they know eh? :s:

    Stuck all my notes/books in a couple of those A4 paper boxes (the ones which hold 5 reams of paper) that I had lying around.. and then up in the attic... it will be a good memory point in a few years time..

    If you have a computer and a scanner, just scan all the essential notes onto your computer and you can then just recycle the paper copies, and still have a copy on your comp. :p:

    That's what I was gonna say :P

    Take all those notes and with the magic of a computer, turn them into a single CD.

    I will be keeping mine, too much work to burn!

    Depends on your attitude, my course at uni is very relevent to my a-levels. If your a-levels feel like they're useless now, or the notes will never help you in future then i suppose getting rid of them makes more sense.

    Give them to some poor person who doesn't have any notes but would like some. I'm sure they will be very happy.
    I have all my old schoolbooks sitting in my cupboard which helps my sister.
