I put mine where all good boxes deserve to go, THE RUBBISH BIN.
Sorry , I dont keep my boxes, no reason to. Having box doesn't increase more in resale, hell, I wouldnt pay extra for a used item just because it came with its original box.
It would be hard to prove that used lenses with the retail box sell for more. But I am certain that they sell quicker, since there are many buyers who will not buy a lens without the original box.

I personally would not buy a second hand lens unless it came with the original box.

Yes, I know it's the actual lens that's important, but a previous owner who took the burden of keeping the box would perhaps be a bit more careful with the lens too. That's how I feel about it.

This thread inspired me to scrap all my boxes except my 60D body and Sony video camcorder as they're still covered by extended warranty. Lol.

A few of mine have been recycled already, but these ones are still gathering dust in the cupboard... I figure that if I sell any of the contents in the future, the original packaging will make postage much simpler.

I had to pull down my collection to add the 24-70 box; so here it is: the new family portrait:
