Saving You Money
If you're in need of some qick cash, don't throw it away...
or like me, shove itin a drawer and forget about it.
I talked with the founder of Green Proof Your Home about the recycle for cash programs that are online sites like Gazelle.com, and Securetradein.com
You simply go online, type in the device you're looking to sell and they'll let you know what it's worth.

Stacy Case says: "I think when you look at some of these especially this droid that's cracked.. you may think it has no value.?" ..
Tara says: "Yeah... but there are parts.. you've got the glass that's cracked.. but still the items and elements inside are still okay and probably can be reused You know you're short on cash and you want to get something for it... these companies can do that for you... "
For security reasons, you'll want to be sure to clear all of your contacts, pictures and any personal information before you sell your phone or computer.
These companies sell the recycled devices in overseas markets.
