What do you do with your Christmas cards?

If you are friends with me in real life, you know that I love a Christmas card! If you've been following my blog for a while, you may have seen my post last year of our Christmas scrapbook.
For the record... NO, I do not love a scrapbook, although my last 2 posts may lead you to believe that I do. However, I do love the memories that pictures bring about.
So, I titled this post... What do you do with your Christmas cards?
Throw them away, stash them in a drawer, or attempt to hang on to them yet just like the sock in the dryer they just seem to disappear.
Well, here's what I am currently doing with mine (just our family card not every card you receive).
I have a scrapbook and I just add to it every year.
I said this is what I am "currently" doing because I like to keep my options open. I use tape instead of glue just in case I decide to switch to something different than the scrapbook in the future.
Keys to success (because if you are friends with me, you KNOW that I am the most unorganized person on the planet)!
** Keep it simple! Who cares if your writing is sloppy or you just stuck some pictures in the photo sleeves? You can always change it in the future if you want to. But for post-Christmas fatigue sake... just stick the cards in there and write Merry Christmas somewhere :)

** Use the Bare Minimum! As you will see, I only put our Christmas card and the kids pictures with Santa in the album. If you start trying to add ALL of your Christmas photos from that year, you may only complete 1 or 2 years :)
I'd love to hear your ideas on what you do with your family Christmas cards!
Oh and for the future, if you'd like to receive a card from us, just send me your address! I'd love to exchange!
