CD cases, to keep or not to keep? That is the question.

I have many friends and acquaintances who get rid of their cd cases when they get cd's (they usually put them in cd binders or something of the sort).

I personally keep all of them, I quite like the cd booklets and artwork.

What are your opinions and such?

Keep for artwork and booklets...

any damaged cases get replaced with extra CD cases lying around, originally used for purposes of burning CDs

I keep them and I will never throw them out. I keep some cd's in a binder (with artwork) for traveling.

How can you throw them away? and why?

Why even bother with the cd if you don't have the complete packaging for them?

I once took all my cd's and put them in a binder. Never again. I missed the lyrics and artwork way too much and without the CD inside the case gets lost far too easily

i put my cds in binders for transportation purposes.

but throwing out the cases? ok, i could see getting rid of them if they were really broken, not slightly broken...my case to london calling is cracked pretty bad but i taped it back together. but i guess if a case got totaly demolished i'd toss it...

but the album art? the only bad album art is the stuff that XP makes. sometimes the album art is just as cool as the cd. i was talking to a guy last night who said he hasn't bought an album in 4 years, he only downloads stuff. morals aside, i couldn't do that just because as chessy as it sounds, i love reading every last thank you. i like knowing that track 5 or whatever was dedicated to so-and-so's dog. i get annoyed when bands don't print the lyrics cos i like to read them.

now i miss my cd booklets. damn you.

I've thrown away most of mine because of the amount of moving I've done in the past three years (8 moves!). I keep all of the booklets and the little things in the back, but just throw out the plastic cases. I keep them until I have to move, but there's NO WAY I could move with over 500 plastic cases unless I wanted to spend about $400 shipping them all.
