Do You Save Your Ticket Stubs?

I'm sure I'm not the only one.

I started collecting back in '97 when Empire Strikes Back was re-released.. then there was a flood in my basement back in 2001 and they were all destroyed. I started again with Evolution in June of '01. Have way too many to count, but it's just a little thing I like doing since I love the movie-going experience.

How about you?

I have been collecting mine for years...since around 1990. I have a really big collection now. They all go in a box with concert and theatre tickets.

I would save the stub if it was a movie I liked. A year or so later I would look at them and ask my sister "Do you remember when we went to go see ________." We'd laugh about it and start discussing the movie all over again. Now it's every once in a blue moon that I go to the movies, so I've stopped keeping them. Glad to know I'm not the only one who did that.

Yep, ever since I got a movie journal for Christmas a few years ago. There's a pocket in it - which I presumed was for stubs - so I figured why not.

I'm on my second journal now and made sure to find one that had a similar pocket in it for stubs.

I have every ticket stub since 85. I usually put them under the pastic on top of the artwork on the DVDs of the movie if I own it.

I saved my tickets for one year from one theater, the AFI Silver. I keep them as a memento because that year my wife made a sizable donation to the AFI in my name and for the following year I could see anything I wanted without charge.

Yup, I've been saving mine since about 96 or so. Just toss them in this little brass box I have.

I don't save them per se. I just never clean my wallet.

I am 34 and have almost every stub from every concert/movie/sporting event I have been to in the last 24 years. Some older. They go in my drawer and then to a sealed tupperware type container into the attic.

I know. I feel outdone. Chances are though he'll die of old age, and since he's much older than me, by that time I'll have the same amount collected.

been collecting them since the early '90's. I think Speed is the earliest. I don't go to the theater as much as I used to but I still keep them when I do go.

I used to, but not so much anymore. I lose some occasionally. I don't need any more clutter than I already have.

I have some actual ticket stubs, but others are sales receipts that say the movie name. Not sure when I really started, but I have a decent little collection now. Always wanted to start doing that, but never got around to it, 'til one day I just started and have been since.

I pretty much do but not officially. I have a cup on my dresser which I shove every sporting even ticket as well as movie ticket stub into when I get home. The first one I remember saving was T2 so I've been doing it for almost 20 years now!

I never thrown them out. Eventually I clean out stuff I don't need (like ticket stubs) and will have a laugh looking at all the movies I've seen.

I don't do this for concerts though. Those I keep.

I stopped collecting them the day I washed my jeans and Sin City stub made a mess of my pocket.

To try to keep the various receipts, ticket stubs, letters, pictures, etc organized, I've been using a large envelope for each year, with the year written in large letters with a Sharpie.



Not sure why I save so much other than being a sentimental packrat. But it is fun to occasionally pick a random envelope and look thru my memories.
