Hi, I hope it is in order for a newbie to post a question.

I collected, perhaps just sometimes slightly unenthusiastically, stamps, when I was little. I recently found my book and some bits'n'bobs, with some old inherited stamps also, and it seems a shame to chuck them out them, so what to do to rationalise things? There's a book with some stamps in it, some of which I remember after all these many, many years (!), and some just in containers, loose, some stuck to envelopes, some not.

I've also been reminded of collecting, as while having a clearout, I've come upon a small flat box, probably used to send abook in, with a block of 10 "Through the Looking Glass" 63p stamps on from 1998, and a pair of "Lion, Witch and Wardrobe" 26p ones also, and "ordinary" 1p and 2p stamps, which look quite attractive. How can I best keep them? I can't put the box in my book!

Mr Yates,

I would just keep them as they are and look at them now and again to bring back the memories of all those years ago.

Can you put the book in the box?

Would you think of removing the stamps from the envelopes and putting all your stamps in an album? I have albums from my husband's youth and mine.

Which reminds me, I found a stamp from Belgian Congo - don't know where it appeared from - and am not sure what to do with it - find a space in one of those childhood albums or put it in with up to date Congo Republic stamps?
