    Niikon Gold Boxes: Keep em or get rid of them?

    Niikon Gold Boxes: Keep em or get rid of them?
    I normally do not keep original boxes expecially with the flat screen TVs. I've been holding on the Nikon and other camera related boxes for a while just incase if I want to sell them in the future. For those equipment that I do not intend to sell, I usually dump it like my Gitzo tripod.

    So, for the camera, lens and flash gold boxes, do you keep them or toss them? I am hesitating on mine since I tend to upgrade every now then although I also have mentioned before that I was more than satisfied with my previous equipment but later have sold them for something newer.

    The only remaining equipment that I have in the picture below are the SB800 flash and Nikon 16-35mm lens.

    Your thoughts?

    I keep my camera and lens boxes because resale prices seem to be a bit better if you have the original box and all the stuff that came in it.
    I only have one camera and 5 lenses, so no big deal really, all fits in one drawer.
