I am not a card keeper (unless it includes a heartfelt message) but a word of advise.......hold on to birth announcements you get in the mail! They will come in handy when you are about to visit a friend and can't remember his/her kids' names.
You might be wondering where you should keep stuff like this?!?! I have a photo box with memory stuff in it. It includes souvenirs, concert tickets, notes, birth announcements, etc. When the box gets full I go through it (which is actually fun) and purge anything that doesn't drum up positive memories. If I can't remember where I got it or why I kept it, in the trash it goes!
I often find myself recommending drawer organizers to my clients. (You know, the trays that come with all different size sections.) The problem with them is that they slip and slide every time you pull out the drawer or push it back in.
Solution: Stick some mounting putty on the bottom and they will stay put. I have fallen back in love :)
