Yep, me too.

Fortunately I have room for them by stuffing the camera boxes into the printer and PC boxes and storing them up where no one else can reach.

Got a "look" a couple of months ago when I pulled out the boxes for the 550 flashes when I listed them.

I keep my camera boxes in the box my TV came in. ;)

Must be an old TV. CRTs handle many more boxes than flat-screens do.

I keep all my boxes too. Don't know why. It is more convenient to put the item in the original box with original packaging when I sell it rather than get a box from the post office or wherever.

I love it when you are selling something like a battery - and they ask, do you have the box that the battery came in ? (yes, actually I do.... because I too, am a box hoarder - LOL)

I keep all the boxes too. From computer part boxes, camera body/lens etc... generally anything that I might sell that has some value with it. If its something cheap I don't bother as the resale value would be cheap anyways.

I am a knife collector as well as a photo gear box saver. I have all the boxes(those that came in or with a box) and receipts in a big box at my daughters house. I told her I did not want the knives and photo gear boxes/receipts together just in case of a fire. It makes an insurance adjusters life much easier if you have receipts for everything. Taking images of your gear and storing the images off site (not in your home) might come in handy if you get burgled or a fire occurs

I keep my boxes under my pillow (flattened, of course). So far no luck.
Could my grandpa lie to me about the Canon fairy? He always used a Zorki 4...

hahahahaha. This thread made me laugh, and want to go take a picture of my closet. and dresser. and office. We hoard boxes, BUT, we break them down, or use them to store other things. Yeah, we look cooler cause our random crap is stashed in L lens cardboard :)
