I remember there was a time when the most technical thing we had in our house was a black and white TV with a hanger for an antenna. Then we upgraded to a color TV which was really nice but it still sucked because as a child I had to serve as the remote control for parents. How times have changed!
Nowadays technology is like breathing we all pretty much have to do it. You can't escape it whether you like it or not. Sometimes it makes life easier and other times it's just painful like being a newbie using the automated grocery line checkout. But for the most part I think it's improved life. I guess I'm partial since I'm what you would call a techie, geek, etc. I've always loved technology and embraced it. You name one of the hottest gadgets and I have it. (This is courtesy of my work at home career as an affiliate.)
But as much as I love technology, I hate the fact that everything becomes obsolete so quickly. I literally have boxes full of old gadgets that I stopped using within a few months because something hotter and better came out. My wife always complains how gadgets are my vice and just wasteful. I'll be the first to admit that it is. However most of my family and friends do benefit from it because I tend to give away old laptops, cell phones, Ipods, etc. I bet you'd love to be my friend. lol
How To Make Money Recycling Gadgets & Electronics
But today that may all stop. I recently discovered a site called Gazelle.com that pays you for old gadgets and electronics you may have lying around your house. In this day and age, everyone has old electronics and gadgets stored away in some closet. And we all know going green has become more catigous than a nasty STD. (Sorry for the analogy, but it's true.) But do you really think everyone really cares about our environment? I hate to sound like a cynic but "Yeah Right!" The real reason you see a big focus on going green is there is money to be made. But most of the time it was only being made by big companies.
However now the little guys like you and I can profit from this and feel better about doing our part for our planet. Chances are you probably have old computers, laptops, cellphones, TVs, Ipods, mp3 players, etc that are collecting dust when they could be collecting dollars! Or better still, think about all that crap that your kids have in their rooms that they aren't using any more like old video games, Playstation, xBox, PSP, Nintendo, etc, etc. I know you've complained to them about how lucky they are to have these toys and that in your day we weren't anywhere near as fortunate. Save your breath! Instead of lecturing them, why not collect their old gadgets and make yourself a small fortune? Or invest that money in savings account for the ingrates? lol Whatever you do, the point is that there is easy money to be made here with recycling gadgets.
Is this a scam?
Aren't we always the skeptic? And you should be. But It's definitely real. I actually learned about the story on Cnet.com which is a well known and trusted resource for everything electronic and gadget. They are the authority on Gadgets and wouldn't risk their reputation recommending scams. So no it's not a scam. And if that's not enough, The Wallstreet Journal, The Today Show and CNN Money have also covered this website. So rest assured it's safe.
Make Even More Money By …
Here are some other ways you can maximize on this Gazelle Work At Home opportunity.
1. Visit your relatives and ask them if they would like to get rid of their old electronics, then go to Gazelle.com and make yourself a profit or share it with your relatives.
2. Place a free ad in craigslist offering free removal or recycling of old gadgets and electronic. No one likes having all that old crap cluttering their home. Like I said earlier, with folks being more conscious about the environment they would probably prefer giving it to you rather then throwing it out in the trash.
3. Visit Garage sales and buy working electronics dirt cheap and re-sell them for a profit on Gazelle.com
That's just a few ways, but the possibilities are endless. And by the way, they have an affiliate/referral program where you can just make money referring people to the site. (Purely optional!) Now isn't that something? Yet another company with an affiliate program. That pesky work at home career as an affiliate continues to rear its profitable head. Hmmmmm?
In any event, when I read up on this opportunity, I figured I would share it with you since it was another legitimate way to make money at home now rather than hoping for to do so. So even if your anti-technology and you are the type to use smoke signals instead of a cell phone, or an 8 track instead of a CD, you can still make money by using the 3 techniques I mentioned above.
Either way, this a great opportunity to make some decent money. So if my other recommendations haven't really been your style, this is another option for you. And like so many of the work at home opportunities I recommend, it doesn't involve waiting to hear from an employer, searching job boards hoping to get hired. Getting started is like any great work at home affiliate program. It's as simple as signing up and getting to work.
So what do you have to lose? Well I'm off to hunt down my old ipods, computers and laptops. My Baby girl Brianna needs a new pair of shoes and visiting Gazelle.com may give it to her.
