    I was talking about this with my friend the other day, I told her I just bin them and she was so shocked and said she keeps every single one. I'm just curious to know what you do with yours? I hate how society has made it almost mandatory to get someone a card on their birthday.

    Tbh personally I don't see the point in them, I've vowed never to buy another again, we'll see how that goes..

    I decorate my house every year with Christmas cards from the last 5-10 years.

    Cheap decorations, personal and they bring back memories.

    I'm guilty of throwing a few away.
    I like to keep them though, memories and all.

    I would like to keep them but if you're getting 10-20 cards twice a year that's a lot of junk to be building up and up and up. I keep cards from meaningful occasions (e.g. graduation, 21st etc) and get rid of the rest.
