What do you guys do with your nuts?

Ok so my doors were virign to being off until lately where they are off every day except when I am babysitting. Do you guys just toss the retaining nuts in the glove box or actually put them on every time?

Mine sit in the garage until it's time to put the hard top on. I put the nuts on during winter 'cause I won't be taking the doors off repeatedly.

Mine are in a little Snack size ziplock bag at the bottom of my center console. Just so that I know where they are if I ever need them for some strange reason, but they haven't seen the light of day in over 3 years...

Mine are in the center console, although I had some trouble rolling up the back window due to cooler temps this weekend, so it might be time to put them back on as I don't see myself going doorless anymore this year...

Glovebox, until winter, then they go back on to protect the exposed threads.

If you're married, your wife will keep them in her purse.

My door hinge nuts have been in my hardware box for ten years now. My wife owns my other nuts.

Well yea I figured our ladies all had our less important parts locked up. I know my gf has mine, but if not for her my bank account would be negative 350 but my jeep would be much farther along.

On the door hinge ones that is what i suspected. Thanks guys I will find a nice cup to put them in until november.

I think mine are in the miscellaneous nuts and bolts bin since I broke two of the studs when I took the doors off for the first time.

Mine are in my cup holder. I'm not sure why, I haven't used my nuts for some time now. I guess I'm just waiting for a nice, clean spot to put them, somewhere I can remember.
