I keep only high end stereo boxes and all flat screen boxes the rest I pitch after about six months after install. I too have a issue with throwing things out that could be of use later. I must have 300 computer cables of any and all types many date back to my original 286......scary !

We have a shed full of boxes. Figured if we sold a computer, people might like the boxes the parts came in.
Just can't seem to find the time to clean, test an old comp and also having to find the correct boxes for it.

One day..............maybe.

I'm another that just keeps them until the warranty runs out, trouble is here I don't have the room to keep many, we don't have a garage.

Funny thing is as many of these things go into a collectible/antique status the boxes in good condition become as valuable or more than the goods.
