Get Organized Month 2009 - Decluttering Your Electronics

Got outdated electronics? You hate to get rid of them because you feel someone can use them? Here are a couple of options for ya.

You can sell them at Gazelle. Gazelle buys cell phones, digital cameras, MP3 players, laptops, PDAs, GPS devices, gaming consoles, camcorders, satellite radios, external drives, video games, and movies. Simply submit your item and they will make an offer. If it's a deal, they will pay for shipping and even send you a box.

NBC Nightly News recently featured a store in NYC, CEX, that purchases electronic gadgets and resells them in their store. View the story.

If you'd rather donate your items, The National Cristina Foundation takes computers, printers, peripherals, and software. "The National Cristina Foundation is a not-for-profit foundation dedicated to the support of training through donated technology. For more than two decades we have encouraged companies and individuals to donate computers and other technology, which is then matched to charities, schools and public agencies in all 50 states, Canada, and in many countries around the world."

Do you recommend other organizations that help us declutter our electronics? (If you receive this blog by email and want to comment, this link will take you back to my blog.)
