I got rid of mine during a cleaning spree where it was suggested you didn't need them I now 50 years later wish I had kept mine...not because of my pictures but the notes classmates wrote..you can get another copy albet expensive but the notes written ahhh and quite a few of my classmates have left this earth so it is bittersweet.

I've kept mine, but I'd hate for my kids to look through them. I was one of those 'goody two shoes' type gals and some of my peers enjoyed writing really nasty stuff on the inside covers of them. Ticked me off.

lol, but it was through my yearbook that one classmate declared his love for me. !!!!! Whattttt? I had no idea. I was also not interested, but he was a nice boy.

As someone that has been out of high school for more than 50 years, I vote to keep them. I hear about people that have died, or are not doing well, or is now retired and living the good life somewhere exotic. I can't remember who a lot of these people are until I look them up. Then it all comes rushing back to me. So they might come in handy some day!

I'm not very nostalgic. Didn't keep mine long and have never been to a school reunion. I did keep in contact with some college friends for a long while but other than that, never looked back to my school years..

You may wish to donate your yearbooks to the library or Goodwill. A lot of people may be interested in coming across a 'find' like that! You just never know whose day you might make.

I haven't unpacked mine yet, but I'm tossing mine. High school was horrible for me, and I'd just as soon forget it.

I say "Keep them!" I love looking back through them. Those high school years are so important in our development. And loaded with wonderful memories - and heartaches too. And yes, there were lots of mistakes made, but I like the post where one saved the whole LOVE page from a then-boyfriend to use as a teaching tool in her children's lives. My husband and I both look through my yearbooks often. He now teaches at my highschool so he enjoys seeing parents of his students. And I just enjoy refreshing the memories!

Hello! I only have junior and senior book. I have kept them. Planning to pass them on to my daughter. Not only, do I have them, I helped work on them by collecting ad money and doing some artwork for an ad. Also, special mention to some honors I received. I, too, need it to look up names from time to time. Senior moments are real! LOL

I will keep mine. Some are good at scanning and that would be a way to preserve memories if you are good at that. Then you could burn or shred the original books. I don't look very often but once in awhile I have look to see a picture with a name I forgot etc..

I think I'm keeping mine. Though I hate a few of the comments people wrote in them.
But you know what I did?
I had saved a whole page for my then boyfriend to fill up (as he requested.) Boy oh boy! Was it ever filled with never ending LOVE LOVE LOVE.
Well, a year later he had broken up with me.

I actually saved it for that ONE moment when my growing children felt they were TRULY TRULY IN LOVE....to show them that what WE think is love, is often just infatuation or short lived or childish. What ever.

I finally had the opportunity to use it this summer.
From the sound of the writing it was really really true love that he wished would NEVER end.
But it did. On his own choice.

I thought it was a good lesson/example for my children. And it did touch them. We'll see what happens from here! lol

LOL, Lecates, too much work for what it's worth. One guy did a "scavenger hunt" throughout the book, that much I remember.

That makes sense! I know we didn't even get our Sr year books until THE NEXT YEAR! When I was in college! How stupid was that? Well, that one isn't signed by anyone obviously :-) Well, best wishes!

Yeah, no, I had some now ex-boyfriends that signed it and wouldn't want others reading. Good suggestion though for something without personal stuff in it.

Didn't think about that. More wondering if any old classmates might want them if that didn't bother you? A friend of mine's house was gutted and she lost every thing. I know she would have appreciated an offer of something like that. Didn't know if you were on classmates or facebook group. :-)

Yeah, would rather recycle them. Not sure I'd want people I don't know looking at photos of my classmate and I - and reading all the things they wrote to me in them.

Keep your senior one if you keep any---but the rest, I would toss. As much as you move around, makes no sense to keep.

I'm helping my Mom clean out her basement and there is a bin with a bunch of stuff from my high school days. Prom dress, my old letter jacket and cheerleading outfit, other stuff.

I am donating it all but I don't know if I should keep or toss my yearbooks. I don't look at them nor have I kept in touch with many from high school.

I'm keeping photographs taken outside of the yearbooks. I'm 40 so for me this was 22 years ago.

Keep the yearbooks, or toss??
