Our Holiday Card display always seem to be the last thing we take down each year (Though you'll never see my tree up a day past New Years!) They are too fun! I love receiving, displaying and fully enjoying loved ones cards, but I'll be totally honest here, I think it's totally okay and should be a guilt free activity to dispose of them after the holidays.
One exception: your own family card
Always save one copy from each year and keep them in a way you can enjoy them. Ex: a photo box, a photo album, a collage frame that you utilize each year as decoration. Don't throw them in a drawer, have a designated place, and only keep one.
Are you a card keeper? We understand, so here's a few quick DIY rules to keep them all in order:
Try to pare it down to the people in your life that you are really close with, it's okay to only keep a select few.
Get rid of all envelopes if you haven't already. (Don't forget to update your address book.)
Store them in a way that you can enjoy them - keeping them in boxes never to be looked at year after year is a waste of your storage space.
