    I still have all the boxes to my Apple products, they're so nice looking, I've never willingly thrown it away.

    Yes, I still have the box and receipt for my iPhone, iPad, iPad smart cover, Apple Bluetooth keyboard, and the iPad stand. I also maintain a copy of the receipts via Evernote.

    You bet your @$$ I kept it, lol. My reasons for keeping it are 1) if I ever need to re-pack my 4S to put away because I upgraded to a newer iPhone and 2) in case I ever have an issue, I have original packaging for it

    Yes but I don't know why. I live less than 10 mins from an Apple Store in case I have to return something.

    Maybe it's time to clean out my closet and make room for other stuff I really don't need to keep.

    Good Luck

    I keep mine too, but I keep the boxes for almost every electronic item I buy until I don't have room for them.

    I'm not a hoarder or anything. I just thought the Apple packaging was worth too much to throw away. It doesn't feel like something to be disposed of, it has a little weight to it and lasts a long time. But I do like to look at it though.

    I keep all of my boxes because I tell my self I'm going to sell it when the next gen comes out. Yeah... I've never done that. They are still too useful to have around for me to sell.

    I even keep the boxes of stuff I don't own anymore, like my original iPhone, which I sold years ago...buyer didn't want the box, and it's still at the bottom of the pile of iPhone boxes

    Guilty... iPods, iPhones, iPads, MacBook Pros/Air, Mac Mini, iMac, AppleTVs, Time Machine, Airport Extreme, Keyboards, Mouse, TrackPad... I have them all... and like some of the others, I can get my hands on a copy of the receipt for every Apple product that I have ever owned...

    When I "retire" an item, it goes back in its box for storage - or sale, in which case, the box goes with it.

    I'm not a hoarder and I DON'T have a problem. More like "pride of ownership".

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    Now that I wouldn't do. I don't keep the box for something I no longer own. I had an iPod touch 4, I kept the box, but I threw it away after I sold it. But as long as I have the item, I am compelled not to throw away such a nice looking box.

    Now that I wouldn't do. I don't keep the box for something I no longer own. I had an iPod touch 4, I kept the box, but I threw it away way before I sold it (it was about that time). But as long as I have the item, I am compelled not to throw away such a nice looking box. With the iPhone, sometimes I put the phone inside the box just to look at it.

    I save boxes for anything I have under warranty, or anything that I can get more money on when it comes time to sell i.e. iPhones

    I always keep the packaging of my Apple products. The main reason is because I can sell it with a higher price if I still have the box and the accessories that came with it.

    I agree. I may have the box floating around somewhere, but for the most part I throw everything away just cuz it clutters everything and is useless since I'm not really looking into selling anything.

    Mine are actually on display in my office, and one iPad box is used as a monitor stand to kick it up about 2".
