I record journal entries on loose leaf paper and then place them in 3 ring binders. I have several of these binders, as well as some journal books. I'm wondering if others save their old journals or if they throw them away after a period of time. Should I pack them up in a box, start a scanning project and transfer them to the computer (this could take a long time), perhaps only transferring the more meaningful entries? Should I toss them all? Should I select the most meaningful entries out of all the binders and keep just one binder? Any other ideas? I write and consider some of the entries to be seeds for poems/stories/etc. And I'm also wondering what others do with this type of clutter.
Privacy is important to me and it's hard to keep them up in a way that others won't come across them and read them.
