Earth Day isn’t until April 22, but everyday is earth day at GirlieGirlArmy! We don’t throw out much – nearly everything in our office and homes is appropriately delineated to the correct recycling or donation location. There is a place to donate absolutely everything, but many of them can actually make you money! If you are tight on money or/ and need to do a house or office organization, turn your clutter into cash with these 3 genius solutions to too much stuff.
Here are three EASY, quick, and money making (!) things to do with your old junk;
Gazelle.com is making a direct green impact by keeping old smartphones, tablets, and MacBooks out of landfills. Earth-friendly and convenient, Gazelle offers cash for buying your pre-owned consumer electronics. The process is easy – just look up your old device on Gazelle.com and receive a cash offer. Gazelle sends packaging materials and pays shipping costs. Then just wait for a quick payment by your choice of check, Amazon.com Gift Cards or PayPal.
The clothes kids have outgrown can now be turned into cash to support their school. Former school principal Stacey Boyd founded Schoola as a fix for the devastating school budget cuts that are affecting schools nationwide. Parents donate gently used clothing and Schoola sells the items online with money going right back to the schools from where the items were collected, or the non-profit school of your choice – they even send you a bag, but you can ship them back in any container. This one may not be money-making for you, but it’s money-making for your favorite public school – which is essentially money-making for your child or friend’s kids!
ecoATM kiosks offers another way to get instant cash for old, unwanted, electronics. It’s easy to find one at many stores and malls nationwide. Simply plug an old smartphone or tablet into the machine and receive cash for it right from the dispenser! It’s also a great way to safely dispose of broken phones so they don’t end up in a landfill.
