Is There Any Reason to Hang On To Old Business Cards?

My first New York City job was in an office where everybody – even me, the new receptionist – got business cards. When I left the job three years later, I still had over half of the box I’d been given.

That box is still on my shelf. Is there any reason I should keep hanging on to the cards I was given? What are they, other than funny, curious relics of a job I’ve left behind?

How does one reuse old business cards? Any ideas? Or do they just head into the recycling bin?

…Hope everyone’s week is moving swiftly toward the weekend.
