For now I have a postcard book found here:
https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B015YAGQRG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage...

I am new to Postcrossing though and only have 6 so far, so we'll see what I'll do as I get more! I don't like owning a lot of things at all, so I don't know how this will work once I fill it up. I guess I'll worry about that in the future.

Postcard books are really good! I only save one from each location though, otherwise, there are too many!

I take pictures of the rest that I want to save! For me I put them into penpalmanger . com!

My favourite received cards go to a wall in my room, everything else to one big drawer together with all my letters. (It's overflowing already!) I also started making "postcard books" with the more interesting cards (just glue them together with sticky tape at one side!) Those, of course, stand on my bookshelf next to my postcard books. My room is probably hell for postcard collectors :P

I store my as of yet unwritten postcards in small drawers: one for all normal cards and one for selfmade ones. They have the perfect postcard size :love at first:
And I have a bigger drawer for all cards which are slightly too big or long so that they don't fit in my smaller drawers.
I also have a shoe box for those cards I don't like very much but own anyway for some reason (great for "ugly card tag" and the like!) I hope to empty it soon...
Why do I have so many postcards? :duh:

I do this project with the young man I take care of who has special needs so we can learn about the world together. Every week he picks a card we received and we make a scrapbook page out of it. We research what's on the card or the area it's from, he glues pictures of things he finds interesting, or would visit is we went there, and we cook popular meals from that country all week. It's a great learning activity for him as well as a great fine motor exercise activity because of the cutting and gluing.

I tried to upload a picture but it won't let me

I have started keeping my cards in acid free sleeves, the standard size holds 6 cards but I only use 3 so I can see the front and back. The pages hook into a 3 ring binder. Also you can get sleeves with larger openings for large or odd shaped cards. Have a great day, I just found this thread so I suspect I will be reading old posts for a few hours haha.,

Just in journal-style notebooks. Also, I have notebooks for train tickets, restaurant receipts, business cards, etc. It's a great way to easily record memories, and track places you've been! I always come back from a trip with a ziploc bag jam-packed with pieces of paper. It also came in handy last year, a friend asked about a hole-in-the-wall hotel I had stayed at during a trip to France and I was able to just check the receipt for the info!

I keep all of my unused postcards in a plastic shoe-box size bin. For my postcard collection I have a binder with special clear postcard size holders that go inside it. They're made by the same company that makes trading card binder sleeves.

We just installed our postcard wall. As new members, we can't wait to fill up the wall! :) The map was already there with pins representing where we've been. Now the postcards we receive can surround the map!

How pretty! What will you do once your postcards get so numerous you run out of wall space?

Build a bigger house. :spin: (Haha, just kidding. The best part is we can cycle them in/out depending on what our favorites are if it gets too cluttered, or my wife did mention putting some in our hallway.)

I store my postcards in A5 files of 2 pcs. in the file, or 1 pc., if the card is large.
The files themselves are filed in such a folder: https://www.komus.ru/katalog/papki-i-sistemy-arkhivatsii/papki-s-aro...
This is more convenient than a special album for postcards, because it allows you to store postcards up to size A5.

I keep mine like this ^^


This month I went to a mall and bought this cheap wire letter rack I found in a store which is just perfect for my cards and any other snail mail! :)
It's only IDR35k (I think no more than $5) and it's quiet simple. It can be attached to wall with nail but I like to keep it upon my desk ^^
It looks like it can store more cards further..
