This is NOT a sponsored post, just a cool website I want to share with you all.

After I bought my MacBook Air last April, I made the decision to keep my ancient PC around just in case. I had everything backed up on an external hard drive, too, but without a PC around, I thought I wouldn't be able to access the files located on there. Thank God for the Internet...and Google...and YouTube...and USB 2.0 connections.

Yesterday, I started digging around and found out that I could format my hard drive so that I could access the files on my Mac as well. It took a few hours to get everything up and running, but at the end of the day, I had all my old files rewritten in a language that both Macs and PCs could understand. In doing that, I eliminated the very last reason to keep my old laptop around. The thing is 5-years old, which, as you know, makes it a fossil, but I was determined to figure out a way to turn it into cash money. And that's exactly what Gazelle is going to do for me!

Gazelle allows customers to recycle used electronics or sell them for cash! I went through their quick and easy selling guide and was pleasantly surprised to find out that my dinosaur is worth $68 to them. Better still, they sent me a pre-paid shipping label to mail it out with!

Gazelle isn't just for computer equipment. You can sell (or at least responsible recycle) any ancient piece of electronic equipment through their website. I know I'm not the only one with old laptops, iPods, Palm Pilots (remember those?), MP3 players and digital cameras laying around, collecting dust. Do yourself a favor and check out Gazelle to see if you can collect some cash for that trash. If you want to send me a portion of your proceeds, I'd be more than happy to accept. Let me know how you make out. You're welcome.
