Especially if they are cleanly cut, no non-perpendicular/parallel cuts. And I trust you used only the finest blade when cutting.
Sort them alphanumerically by the absolute gravity of the atomic weight of the compound nuclear particles. (and subset by protons vis-à-vis neutrons)
But seriously - why keep them in the first place???? (a
There are a lot of BrickLinkers that keep them for shipping which saves money.
Like others have said, I keep the bags until I have built the set (or even just the numbered section of the build) to be sure there are no stray pieces I may have missed, but after that, 'see ya later alligator' ('after a while crocodile').
I do keep the 'empty' sticker sheet (yeah I'm one of those weird sticker apply-ers, go figure), and any little boxes that string or capes, etc, might be packaged in, and even the little battery saver tag for the light bricks, but I draw the line at the empty numbered bags...the actual set boxes and instructions are always kept, but that probably goes without saying in this discussion. ;-)
Although thinking about it, I could imagine EOL empty numbered bags attracting a premium.
I think if you have the perspective that you may one day sell off the set or give it away as a special gift; then sure, go ahead and store the bags inside the box.
But overall tossing them seems to be the best bet.
