Tech Clutter Update

Last week I posted about all of the corded creatures lurking about in our apartment that were in need of a new home. I’m happy to report that many of them left via USPS this morning for exotic new locales like Pennsylvania, Kansas, and Florida. Here’s where we currently stand:

  • 3 2 laptops
  • 3 2 Kindles
  • 4 Cell Phones
  • 3 1 streaming devices (Roku)
  • 4 fitness watches
  • 1 external monitor
  • 1 printer/scanner
  • 1 Bluetooth keyboard
  • 1 Bluetooth speaker
  • 4 headsets
  • 4 rechargeable battery banks
  • 1 solar panel laptop charger
  • 1 Xbox 360
  • 1 DVD player
  • 1 cordless phone
  • 6 remotes
  • 3 TV antenna
  • 7 USB phone chargers
  • No more miscellaneous cords!

We took Tank to Best Buy last night for recycling. I sold my old Kindle, the solar laptop charger, a fitness watch, the Google Chromecast, the TiVo box, and one of the cell phones on eBay. We did much better than expected, netting a grand total of $135.69. We donated all the miscellaneous cords, the cordless phone, an antenna, and a universal remote to Goodwill. The other antenna we took back to the store for a refund of $8.74. The DVD player and a few headsets are going to family members but we haven’t seen them yet this week. Once I get the photos off the other cell phone, I’ll probably post it on eBay too, but it’s a non-smart phone so it’s a bit of a process. All in all though, I’m pretty happy with our decluttering effort.
