I throw them away (with exception of my nieces) but Darling Husband likes to keep them. We compromise and keep them for a season or two then toss them.

After I’ve read them I usually put them on the fridge. Then after a little while I’ll toss them.

They always end up in the trash at my house. I do make sure that I share it with Fiance so he can see, but a photo thank you  gets treated the same as a regular one. I hold onto and display holiday cards for a bit though… But I don’t keep them.

Eventually, yes I throw them away.  I’ll keep them on my fridge for a little while, and then it goes into the trash.  I just don’t think I’ll regret not having the “Smith’s Family Christmas card 2014” in 40 years.

I throw away generic items, but keep personalized ones–I’ve kept every thank you card I’ve gotten and put them up on my pinboard (I lost one from a student which bums me out–I thought it was super sweet of her to write it!).  If its a STD or invite, it gets trashed.  Christmas cards I sometimes trash, sometimes keep… that’s more up to chance.

I wait until the date/party/fiesta/etc is over.. then the trash it goes. Unless its my immediate family (brother, mother, nephew, niece) I don’t feel the need to keep it.

I throw them away.  I keep them on my fridge until the event passes (in the case of STD’s), or until a few weeks after Christmas if they are Christmas cards.

Have two Christmas/New Years cards and a Save-the-Date from last year on the fridge… I should probably toss them…

In keep them for a while till they look pretty. Ultimately, one has to throw them.

They get displayed for awhile, then I toss them. Generally a 1-3 week range. For Christmas cards, we display them through January. Then toss 😉

depends on who it is. close friend/family, once i’m tired of seeing in on my fridge, i’ll put it in a box or album where i stash all my photos or i cut the photo out and frame it. if it’s not someone we’re particularly close to, we toss it.
