In the past, I’ve advocated not selling off old gaming books and taking pictures of your sessions. The same goes for your notes.

When it comes to your GMing notes, campaign notes, adventure ideas, half-finished map doodles and other paperwork, be a packrat. Stick them in a folder in a drawer in your garage, suspecting you’ll never need them again, but don’t throw them away.

I miss nearly every pile of campaign notes I’ve ever tossed, and even the drivel has value — if you can recognize that it was drivel, you’ve learned something from it.
