You are not alone! It was interesting to read your post since we seem to
have the exact same experience and attitude about QSLing. I threw away a
collection that filled a bedroom chest of drawers many years ago and
instructed the ARRL bureau to discard any QSLs they received for me. I
do reply to cards that include SASE's but do not save the cards I
receive. When I run out of my current supply of cards (rubber stamp),
don't know how I'll handle it.
I do save QSLs that I receive for QRP contacts and a few others that I
find interesting (just received one last week from eight year old Becky who
has an Extra ticket!). I also have a collection of cards with "BP"
suffix, probably about three dozen of them.
Answering the cards that include an SASE is a minor annoyance, but the
sender did spend 64 cents and probably needs the card for WAS or county
awards. Oh, I also do not log by hand any more. All QSO's, contest or
otherwise, are logged on NA. The only writing I seem to do any more is
to sign my name on checks to pay the bills. :-(
