I like to keep certain things. I am a drunken fool and come across as a cynical bitter dick, but some things make me soft hearted. for instance, I have an heirloom aged glass cabinet in which I store away keepsakes and silly things that are not materially important, but have meaning to me Birthday and holiday cards, for instance; it is so rare these days, for me at least, to get hand-written correspondence. Something someone put some drat effort into, to write, stamp, and mail. I have a bundle of these dating back to my childhood. I like to read them when I am feeling down. Sounds silly I know, but small strange things like that can make a difference in a person's life, or just day to day existence. I also have some notebooks from gradeschool with my stupid doodles and notes in them, even ones as far back as first grade when I wrote an "essay" and cartoon about Gorfeld, my favorite cartoon character.

What sentimental or nostalgic things have you kept over the years? Feel free to tell me to gently caress off, imma blaze now

I keep old family stuff. I have a little wooden doorstopper shaped and painted like felix the cat that my grandfather made in wood shop when he was a little boy. I have a few pieces of my wife's wedding costume pinned up around the house because it's too pretty to go in a bag in the basement. A Valentine's day card from 2013 is stood up on the book case next to the TV. I have all my correspondences from living abroad in a folder somewhere. I'm gonna go smoke a bowl in my car even though it's cold and 3am.

You don't come across as bitter or a dick to me OP.

Anyway I think I have a few things I've written stashed away including the journal that says "a good piss is better than a bad gently caress". Looking forward to my new place that's big enough for BOOKSHELVES!

Rocks. Pretty rocks, unusual rocks, even completely plain rocks. I have rocks from everywhere I've been in the world. They're very heavy, but somehow I never decide to get rid of them or leave them behind when I move.

I had a breakup in my early 20s that I handled pretty melodramatically, as was the style of the time, and I trashed everything of any sentimental value from the relationship. A few months ago I found out my ex killed herself a few years later, (I feel bad taking like a decade to find out) and now I get a little sentimental when hanging up clothes because the only thing I still own from that time is some pink and purple clothes hangers she picked out for our apartment.

Other than that, I don't save stuff really. A coworker quit recently and left nice little notes in everyone's lockers. I read mine, thought "that was nice" and then went to throw it out. Throwing it out immediately felt rude, so I stuck it to the wall of my locker. That felt a little excessive, so I took it off the wall of the locker and just put it on the bottom where it gets smashed and wrinkled every time I use my locker. It's been about a week, probably time to trash it.

I have my teddy bear from when I was born. His name is James James Morrison Morrison. That's the full name and yes you have to say it like that every time. No one knows why I started calling him that. I'm guessing a Doors documentary was on.

Aside from that I have two items of real sentimental value. Both are small tokens from friends who passed away in the last few years.

Nothing else tho. These three items are the only things that have passed the function test. Everything else serves a purpose and once it can no longer be used (or is not needed) then I get rid of it. I hate forming attachments to items.

I think I got a stack of old birthday cards and elementary school notes in a drawer at my mom's place, along with notes from highschool too. I think most of my sentimental stuff is notes and cards now that I try thinking about it.
I also have a small pencil drawing of a parrot a highschool friend made for me nearly 20 years ago.

I keep all of my movie theater tickets. The earliest tickets I decided to start keeping are from Aladdin in 1992, and the latest I have are from Yesterday in 2019. Havent been to the movies since then because of the pandemic, but I can look through them and remember who I saw the movie with and what we were doing with clarity.

I have so much stuff that I can't bear to get rid of

- Trinkets and stuff I got while working as a reporter, including badges to conventions and the like
- almost every letter my grandfather ever sent me
- little things I picked up from my travels

I'm currently in the process of getting ready to move and finding so much poo poo that I have held onto that I really don't need to, like old paychecks and the like. It was 10 years ago!! They should be gone!!

I started putting together a shoe box of mementos from when I started dating my wife. 6 years later it's now 2 overflowing boxes of stuff that doesn't fit anywhere else in the house. Maps from museums we went to, little plastic souvenirs we got on vacations, stuff like that. I still have the parking pass from our first date in there.

I used to have a very small & intimate collection of 'stuff' I had picked up from living and traveling all over. Stuff like this - pocket change from a trip to Hong Kong, a star wars piggy bank I've had since I was a kid, a casino token from a huge winning bet, etc.

Than all of my stuff was stolen while I was moving across the country :smith:

Weirdly, though, the local sheriff department recovered a tiny bit of it - they recovered my aging gaming PC and all of the foreign change. I ended up changing some flights around on a business trip and swung by the Memphis TN PD department and sat around their equipment locker for a few hours while they had to manually sit down and count back something like a thousand coins in various foreign denominations with a declared value of like seventeen bucks or something stupid. Now I'm pretty sour on souvenirs :lol:

Instead I take pics with my cell phone as a momento, and make sure it gets uploaded to at least two different cloud services.

I normally get one little trinket from each place I visit. A whistle shaped like a cardinal from Nicaragua, a little bamboo jewelry box from Tokyo, a tiny ship-in-a-bottle from Stockholm, and so on.

Other than that, nothing. Dont even have my old yearbooks or Christmas ornaments.

Look to your left. Look to your right. Only one of you is going to pass this course.

a lot of my friends growing up died from heroin and I have a small something from each of them to remember them by. A tshirt they left at my house, a book they lent me, a souvenier from China, a handwritten recipe on an index card. Probably more stuff in that box but I'm not exactly in the mood to open it up right now.

i also have kept my teddy bear from infancy. his name is Beaner, because he's full of beans. he has rotating limbs like a GI joe, except for one arm that got torn off; my mom sewed it back on. once i left beaner in a hotel in france by accident, but the staff mailed it to my family. Beaner sits on my bookshelf and i only move him to dust the shelf

all of my Christmas tree ornaments are ones my family either made or collected from our time in Europe years ago

i have my dad's old pipes, and two he gave me for a birthday or some holiday. one has a wood stem and ceramic bowl carved in the shape of a hand. the other is one of those long stemmed pipes made of clay. he also gave me a tiny pipe that was shaped like a growling lion-- im pretty sure it was for smoking opium-- but i lost it :(
