If you keep tickets from movies, concerts, and plays, are they tossed into random drawers or do you keep them in a memory box or scrapbook? If you keep them together and organized because you like the way they prompt your memory of events, no problem, keep them.
If you like the memory prompt but don’t find it necessary to keep the actual ticket, consider scanning them and storing the images on your computer (and backing up on a cloud service).
On the other hand, if you randomly tossed some old tickets in your junk drawer, some in your desk, and others in another drawer or box, question if they are important to you – because scattered all over the place, they aren’t really doing anything for you.
You can toss or recycle tickets; you don’t have to keep them.
If this doesn’t apply to you – Scan 5-10 documents so you don’t need to hold onto the originals.
