In the How Cool Is This? department, check out Second Rotation http://www.secondrotation.com/.
Basically they will purchase your old cell phones, digital cameras, gaming consoles, digital music players, and GPS systems. Coming soon they’re going to start doing old laptops. They refurbish them and then resell them on eBay — and make the whole thing really convenient for you. (Have you ever sold something on eBay?) This is not only easy, it’s much better than the landfill.
This is fun for kids who just got upgraded at Christmas, and could use some extra money for their old stuff. Check it out!
