    I usually take apart all my notes and throw them in the recycle bin as soon as I'm done with the course.
    Still got a stack of GCSE/A Level textbooks in my room, trying to sell them off on Ebay but it's taking a while.

    I'm keeping some stuff for the memories (like uniform and some pieces of work), but otherwise I'm going to get rid of it all.

    I think I'm going to give it to my aunt to use for kindling for her fireplace for the winter, she's always looking for paper for it. At least then it'll be visibly useful, it feels bad just throwing it in the bin even if it does get recycled!

    Edit: Just remembered that after my last ever Maths exam I ceremoniously threw a 5kg weight onto my calculator, that was fun :laugh:

    I don't think I have anything from primary school apart from a few things my mum wanted to keep. I still have a lot of my high school and college work, though (I haven't got round to throwing it away yet - it's buried in the back of various cupboards and I'm too lazy to get everything out)

    I destroyed all my spanish books/revision guides after the exam (felt so liberating :laugh:) i have kept everything else though especially the planners. I have kept all of them since yr 7.

    I just stick all of the old books under my bed
    i keep all my planners too! they mean much more to me than all of the books

    using them for a fireplace sounds like the best thing tbh imagine around christmas, being kept warm by your burning maths work

    i am throwing away sooo much primary school stuff! it has all been kept in the same cupboard and all of my gcse stuff is in there too, i've never thrown away my school work until right now so it's very overwhelming

    Yeah! Although I love the idea of a communal bonfire, that'd be so much fun :laugh:
