Step 1: out with the old

Some call it spring cleaning. I call it...a disaster. Why? For me cleaning means making an even bigger mess than before. But to make things a little easier, I tackled my nightstands and bookshelves first. Interestingly, I came up with a lot of electronics. I got my first iPod in 7th grade and my first camera in 5th. Believe it or not, I STILL have them. I read about Gazelle in a magazine and decided to give it a try. The company will literally pay you if you send in old electronics. I came up with 3 iPods, 2 cell phones and 2 cameras that totaled at $63. Not too bad. A box for me to mail in my stuff is on it's way. Not only am I getting rid of junk and getting paid to do it, I'm going green. Instead of ending up in landfills, my devices will be recycled and and reused. Stylish? I think yes. I definitely recommend checking out the site. If you do, let me know what you think! Now...on to the my closet. Wish me luck.

    Rad idea. Can you send stuff other than phones and iPods though?
