I was just trying to tidy up my place and realized that I have birthday cards and anniversary cards and even a few Christmas cards from many past years. I'm not sure why I've kept them though. I mean, I'm as sentimental as the next person, but some of them are from people that I don't even talk to anymore. People that I haven't seen or heard from probably since I last received that card from them. Yet I haven't thrown them away.
I think I need to let them go and just de-clutter. It's not like they're all associated with happy times and fond memories.
How long is the "proper" amount of time to keep a card? Do people get insulted if you've decided to throw it out after a while or are you supposed to just keep cards forever?
