Spring Cleaning for Cash

The birds are chirping and the sun is shining! Time to open those closet doors and examine why you still have jeans from 1991, that ipod brick from 2000 (you know, the one that weighed 10lbs and held 10 songs?), and all those old cell phones. Thanks to the folks at Gazelle, emptying your closets and office drawers just got a little more beneficial, without the hassle of a garage sale. Unfortunately they don’t take the old jeans (or I would be a millionaire), but they do take small electronics, laptops, mp3 players, cell phones, and other gadgets off your hands.

Featured on NBC’s Today show and in Wired, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times, Gazelle is a company with a green mission to first try to reuse electronics and as a last resort, recycle them. You simply go to their website, enter your gadget and search. After you answer a few question about its condition, they instantly offer you a quote. If you accept, they send you a pre-paid box to send in the goods. Once they receive it, they pay you via Paypal, Amazon.com gift card, or you may donate it to charity. And if your item is worthless (doesn’t work, damaged, etc) they will recycle it for you at no cost. It’s a win-win situation!

According to their website, someone in Kentucky just received $116 for their Blackberry. And a guy in Ohio just got $206 for their HTC Sprint Hero. All items get a cash offer. They also accept GPS devices, video games, PDAs, video cameras, digital cameras, and movies. Even my ipod from 2001 was worth $6 and some old Wii games are worth about 10 bucks each.

So, clean out your closets and empty that box under the bed or that plastic tote in the closet for some extra cash. Thanks to Gazelle, spring cleaning just got interesting!
