Hi ladies,

Do you always keep notes and cards that are extra special to you? Where do you keep them?

    I also saved a few homemade cards from my son from when he was in school! One I even framed! =)

    I also have saved my girls cards too!

    I do.  I have file folders . . . and boxes.  I've been collecting them for a long, long time. :)

    Oh yes!!! I'm a sentimental sucker! LOL! But....I'm glad I am! I lost my two great aunts and my grandmother, and my hubby lost his grandmother, and the other day I was going through my cards and I found cards from my two great aunts and my grandma, and even ones from my hubby's grandma (who was a LOVE to me!!). I even found a handwritten recipe from one of my great aunts red onion steak - it's a recipe everyone in my family has been trying to get ahold of for years, but my great aunt told me not to give it to ANYONE, so I haven't, and nobody knows I have it! LOLOL!!  :)

    I'm sooooo sentimental that I even keep voicemails from my hubby and grandparents. Every year when I get a Happy Birthday song from my parents, grandparents and hubby, I save them until the next year. I've always told myself that if I lost my grandparents I'd still love to hear them sing happy birthday to me even after they're gone.

    My MIL gave me these large plastic drawer/container things many years ago. They are a 3 drawer container, quite large, and I've been saving cards in there for years...I think I found a card in there from 1994 when I graduated from high school, and I've got a separate box of wedding cards we got in 1996.

    I'm a little sappy....sorry!  ;)

    hugs

    That is just so sweet . . . lots of good memories in those cards.

     Absolutely! I'm a hard-copy sentimental fool. :o) I have a small Rubbermaid tote/container that I keep them in. It's the perfect size.

    happy

    Yes - I still have notes from 6th grade (some from boys). They make me giggle when I read them.
    I do keep cards from my kids - especially when they trace their hand or something.

    I save the special cards I get from family in a special box in my bedroom closet.

    I keep them in a box in the garage and in some of my drawers.  My SO doesn't really get into my stuff so it's all good.
