LEGO Sets - Do You Keep the Boxes?

<< < (2/3) > >>

Mikey D:
My sets yes, my sons' no.

Keep the instructions, toss the boxes, though that's a habit carried over from the 90's before they had digital instruction downloads on

I actually recently packed up a majority of my sets. Bought a rubbermaid bin and some large ziploc bags and basically placed one set in each bag (or 2/3 sets per bag, depending on the size)

I've kept most of the boxes, but flatten them.  All of the instructions are kept together on a shelf for reference.

I'm still debating if I should just pitch the flattened boxes or keep them.

I keep the flattened boxes as well - when I take a set apart they go into a zip-lock bag.

I don't have that many sets, so keeping the boxes isn't that big of a deal, but I think if it ever got to be a big deal, I might consider tossing them.

I have kept three boxes (Death Star, UCS R2-D2, and UCS B-Wing; the former still "expanded" and the latter two flattened), but have tossed all the rest.  Even flattened, the boxes still take up a lot of room that I really don't have.  I'm at a point now where I have stuff sitting in the floor instead of on shelves (the space behind my computer chair looks like a Lego Creator House shantytown), so real estate is at a premium.  I definitely keep all the instruction books, as well as any other inserts (mini-comics, posters, etc), and let's not even get started on the tackle boxes full of extra pieces. :)
