Yes, as long as it's worth my time. I just got a new router and put my old one on eBay. It was giving me a bit of trouble, and I listed it and described the exact condition it is in and sold it for $50. After fees and shipping that's $35. Listing something on eBay only takes a few minutes and another few minues to box it, slap a label on it, and put it in the outgoing mail in my apartment.

I almost always sell my old electronics, I am not going to ever use them again and they're usually worth a decent amount of money, such as old phones and computers.

Sometimes give it to Charity if its still usable. Now what to do with that copy of Windows 8 I have lying around? :)


You could donate it to me, lol! :p (J/K) I usually give my old tech to family and/or friends who might need it, otherwise, I just chunk it into the garbage. :-/

Nope never. Throw it away, recycle or give it away to charity.


Same here. I never sell it. I probably should. That might be why I never have any money.

I just giv it away to whoever needs it. Mates or a charity.

I'm too lazy to work for a few coppers.

I sell my stuff primarily because I include what I'll get back from it as part of whether or not I can afford it. For me I'm looking at selling my Lumia 900 once the 920 or 8S comes in stock so then I can use the money I get from that to put towards the cost of purchasing a new phone. When it comes to non-technology stuff I tend to only replace something when it is completely had it - to the point that no one would want to buy it other than to use it (in the case of a desk or book shelf) for firewood.

how the hell do you live off that... impressed if true


It feeds my gadget addiction.. I can tell you I don't go broke by doing it. $30-50 for the newest shiny thing is much better than $500. A&E made a show about living off selling old junk.. I think they called it pawn stars, and several YouTube videos have proven it to be staged.

Oh right, I thought this thread was about being a prostitute. Whatever the way the answer is no, I doubt anyone would want what I have :D
