While I was waiting for the dentist I picked up a Redbook mag (I think) and found an article about selling your used electronic gadgets. Check out : http://www.gazelle.com/ Apparently they will send you a postage paid mailer and pay you for your item. Even if you don't get a lot it is more than what you'd get by just leaving it lay in the drawer.

Before and After and even more
Was it ambition or the nitrous oxide at the dentist's office??? I don't care, I am just extremely pleased. After a lazy start to the morning (I did not want to get showered and have a filling replaced) I accomplished a lot so far today. My dentist appointment went really well, I was anticipating a LONG visit, but filling my wisdom tooth didn't even take an hour and it was so painless. When I was finished I ran a couple of errands and then tackled my book shelves. Hubby built me this wall of bookshelves (34" each unit) many years ago. It's kind of a useless wall anyway, if I put seating there you'd be too far away to talk to any one or see the TV - hubby's purpose for the room. I cleared out 6 grocery bags of books from just this one section. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my books and have always wanted a wall of books, but I just decided that I was never going to read everything on the shelves, I have an ereader and the headboard on the bed is full of books too. If I need info or even a recipe I look on the Internet. Here is the after, i know it's not a magazine photo, but looks 100 times better in my opinion. I usually end up putting framed photos of grand kids in front of the books, I have so many pictures. In the top photo you can see on the 4th (from top) shelf a bunch of photos just tossed down and not even displayed. I have decided to put out only some of them....the milestones and of course the new school pictures. On each section the bottom 3 shelves are devoted to grand kids toys, games, and books. That's just the way it is here.
