  • Only for large purchase items tvs, electronics and appliances do I keep the manuals. Most of the things my kids have are uncomplicated and not very expensive. If something goes wrong with them at this point then we will probably just get rid of it. As they get older and they get new things I am sure there will be a need to keep more of the manuals. Right now I already have a filing cabinet drawer full of manual so I try to minimize and keep only the necessities.

  • yes each kid has a small container that we keep them in , in their rooms. It has been a good thing too cant tell you how many toys i have had to go back a few years later and need the manual for a address or trouble shooting.

  • Yes, and then I pass them on when I pass the toys along. I've never had any need for them, but it's just my habit to stick them in a file.

  • Yeah, I actually do,lol. I keep them all in a big ziploc bag in one of the drawers in the nursery. I keep them just in case something is recalled and I'm not sure if I have the exact thing that is recalled and I also keep them in case I sell one of the items or I give something away..I like to be able to pass on the manuals.
