I believe that for most people, once you have 600x or 32Gb/64GB card, you won't use your old 133x, 300x, 8GB card.

So, what do you do with old memory cards that are low in capacity or slow in speed?

For me, I carry them most of the time but don't find the need to use them because new cards have enough storage.

When I sell used gear, I usually bundle old cars so I can get rid of them.

I use mine as a 'Wildcard' backup.

I will at random times copy my best pictures to my old cards and put them in an innocuous place.

That way after my RAID fails, the back up RAID fails, the backup tapes are accidentally magnetized and the online storage firm is hit by a sun flare, I still have the best of what I have done stashed away somewhere.
