I save mine. Sometimes I find typos I want to fix. Occasionally something will just bother me and I'll open it up and change it. I've grabbed pretty clusters out of my layouts and copied them to a new page before too.

 

I will delete them if it is something I really don't like anymore.

I save mine as well. Just for the "what-if-I-lose-something" factor. I actually realized recently that there was an embellishment folder I'd never unzipped for a product and fortunately it was right there for me to find.

Keeping a PSD file is advisable IF you intend to go back and change something or use most of the layers again for another layout.  After a couple of years, if I've not found any reason to go back to it, I delete it.  I've got my flattened file and all my digital photos saved, so I'm not losing anything, but I'm getting back a lot of disk space.

Compulsive saver here for all the above reasons. Plus another reason - When compiling images for my mother-in-law's funeral slide show of pictures and the Shutterfly photo book I'm now making with all those images, I have used several older layouts with  her in them...but I have added and changed things, used different journaling, different photos, etc. So even though I hadn't touched some of those .psd files in 5 years they really really came in handy.

I have all of mine as well, but as my current, portable ehd is filling up, I'll probably delete my psd files on it and just keep them on my main ehd backup. I hate to delete anything!

I save mine on DVDs, but the tech guy at Staples recently told me that DVDs are going by the wayside and everyone is going to thumb drives. I just bought a 1TB EHD so I might transfer them to it for all of above reasons. I have only been digitally scrapping for about 2 years, so I am thinking at some future point I will probably delete the old ones if I haven't gone back to them for awhile. I print most of my pages. Probably won't ever delete the ones I don't print.

I rarely delete anything that requires WORK to recreate.  My staff has a folder on the server labeled "BecauseWeNeverDeleteAnythingHere." 

 

  :winking_baby:

 

Disk drives keep getting cheaper, and I just make a backup and keep going.

I totally agree!  I love the name of the folder.  :D

I save mine, including the working file where I've recorded the supplies and techniques I used, because I consult the information more often than the layout itself.  They're on an EHD for awhile; periodically I copy them to DVDs, and weed out the EHD.  There are many layouts which I haven't printed for myself; they're in my grandchildren's albums, or wedding albums - albums I don't have, so I want to be able to look at them occasionally.  But I could do all this with flattened files!  Maybe it's time to simplify.

I've kept all of mine so far but those files are huge. I think I will weed out a few that I have printed and see no further use for.
