I started it years ago as a joke and now I can't stop. Have them in a beautiful box designed by British artist Matthew Rice. Sometimes I take the larger ones out and examine them.
Do you save your toenail clippings?

Aquinas tells us that even animals have no souls, so what are the odds that toenail clippings can be saved.
I nevertheless retained mine, and, with the aid of a glue gun, was about to create an entire, albeit scratchy replica of myself, when I discovered how much I could get for them on eBay.

If it's one of our freeptards, they may be collecting them in order to place them at murder scenes.

Guys and gals, I totally get how odd this is, trust me. But I like doing it. Just wondering if anybody else doing it.
Nope, R3, never called into C2C but I love that show and once I get my speakers fixed I'm going to listen to the call.

OP After you die, if a space alien needs to get ahold of some DNA so he can assume human form, he can always use your toenail clippings.

R3 Got my speakers fixed this afternoon so I listened to the call. That guy's wacky. I would never ever mingle someone else's toenails with mine. My collection is pure. I can't imagine touching somebody else's toenails, yuck oh my god. And a whole coffee can full? That seems exaggerated. I just measured my Matthew Rice box and it's 3"x3" and 1" high and it's not even filled.

My Sicilian friends' mother warned me to keep a close guard on my clippings, because her sister got hold of some of hers in 1946 and hexed her with them and her life was a living hell ever since (Her children appreciated hearing this repeated over and over.).
So maybe OP is on to something.

You link to something called Old Wives Tales, and that's supposed to be credible? Even if it were true, Picasso was a brilliant artist, so one can overlook such a peccadillo.
What's your excuse? Are you comparing yourself to Picasso? What brilliance will you leave behind in this world, other than some disgusting toenail clippings?

I too compost my nail clippings (and the skin dust from my pedi-egg). These are good nitrogen for the compost.

One day you will meet the man of your dreams, and the first time he is alone in your house he will snoop and find your Matthew Rice box.
When you get home he will have disappeared, taking your toe nail clippings with him.

Oh! R35, I also collect my own teeth. Have all the baby teeth and an adult tooth I had pulled three years ago. They're nestled together in another box (not nearly as nice as the Matthew Rice) but I rarely visit them.

Yes I do and have been for years! But I combine my fingernail clippings with my toenail clippings in the same glass jar in my medicine cabinet. And yes, my few freinds who know of my collection are rightfully disgusted by it. You would be surpirsed at how small the collection is; after doing this for at least 15 years, it's less than a cup of clippings, and no they don't smell.
And as a youngster who was once prone to nosebleeds I would collect my dripping blood into a small cub I kept under the sink, dripping another few tablespoons every few weeks over the dried blood that I had previously collected. Now that was rank smelling.

What a good idea, OP. You can turn them over to LifeGem, along with a fuck of a lot of cash, and have them turned into diamonds. You could have a Diamond Toe Nail Tiara. Even Liz Taylor didn't have one of those!

I cut my nails in my back yard where I can see ants. I like to watch the ants carry away my clippings to stow them safely underground. You seem quite attached to your clippings, however, OP. Have you thought of having them made into jewellery, cufflinks, or a brooch or something?

haha at the collection of baby teeth. I can do you one better.
I was going through my mother's things recently and discovered what can be only described as a brown film carefully wrapped up in tissue. Turns out I was born with a caul (thin lining of the uterine sac) on my face, and my mother, true to her bog-Irish background, saved it in order to ward off bad luck, together with the dried remnants of my umbilical cord. I was revolted and immediately buried both items in the backyard. I think she was relieved to get rid of them too.

You are not alone. What started as a joke for me has turned into a family quirk. i have two sucrets tins filled with nail clippings. most are mine but my kids have started to contribute to the project. we laugh at it and i tell myself i am not attached and can throw them away anytime i wish. im not sure if i blieve that if for no other reason all the years invested now in this aimless project. I told my girlfriend, after 8 months together. I was afraid she would run but she whipped out the nail clipper and made a wonderful contribution of her own! true love. I found your posting because i am convinced there is a clever way to deploy this treasure.
