Actually, I don't, Tammy. And I have only 2 on my keychain--one for the car and one for my home.

Keys related to real estate are always promply disposed of using a hammer.

However, I do have a personal collection of keys without identifiable purpose.

At the back of my house, opening onto a 40 foot brick patio is four pairs of french doors each with it's own handset and bolt lock. This started my personal collection.

Tammy Lankford - now thinking it differently. Why not just have a collection - irrespective of the status of listing?

(And yes, I do have some keys that I don't remember where it came from - it all goes to one key-chain!)

Do you know that commercial where the little pig keeps repeating boots 'n pants and boots 'n pants? It's kinda like that everywhere I turn except the saying is keys and codes and keys and codes, The main difference is that they're all tagged and I know exactly where they should go!

Good morning Tammy. Lots of keys and no idea where they go, so have been around for years. You have motivated me to get rid of them.

Tammy - What's funny is we have a personal key collection. Not sure where they all came from (like at least 25 keys), and we certainly don't know what any of them go to.

Funny you should talk about keys. I just organized mine (again) and found one set of keys that a former client gave me AFTER she pulled the listing a couple of years ago.  I've been meaning to give them back to her. Don't like the responsibility of holding keys unless they are active clients.

I disposed of my old key collection.

When I was working in the foreclosures sector, I had keys that would work on most of the forelosures inventory in our market area.
