time for a little autumn cleaning...


Have I got a surprise for you! Ok, well, it's not super cool like a unicorn or a gorilla but I expect you'll like it just the same. You see, my bestie, magpie, introduced me to a website I would like to share with you. Gazelle is the perfect solution to that plastic storage container hidden in the back of your closet with all those useless old cell phones in it. Or that 6 year old digital camera hiding under your bed. It is a website that pays you for your old electronics. You pop in to see them, enter what it is you're looking to get rid of and they tell you what they'll pay you for it. If it actually is worthless they offer to recycle it for you free of charge, you never even pay the shipping. In many cases they even send you a box to mail it to them in.

And so I went hunting for old electronics of mine. So far I've only sold them 3 things, but I do have a prehistoric laptop they've offered me 83$ for and an old graphing calculator they're offering me 35$ for (just need to find the damn power cord to the laptop and make sure my brother doesn't want the calculator-it is a mighty spiffy calculator).

Look, here's what I have to send them so far.....

Seriously, that was old junk I was expecting to throw away (very bad for the environment) but now I get money for it! They pay you through paypal, a donation to a charity, via check or with an amazon gift card. You choose! And to top it off I found a promo code online that got me extra cash. You really can't beat that!!

Wait! Ha! It gets better!! After I sold my junk to them I was cruising around their website and learned that they also have a referral program. You get 10$ for every person you refer after they sell their first 50$ worth of old gadgets to them. Not too shabby, eh? So clean out those closets and let Gazelle deal with your old crap for you! Hey, why not, it's better for the environment and your wallet!
