We all know how fast tech devices seem to age. But don’t just chuck them out. There is a market for older cell phones, tablet, laptops and the like.
Online sites like uSell and Gazelle will buy your items, saving you the trouble of finding a buyer. Best Buy, Apply and Target will exchange your old devices for gift cards. Other sites like Swappa and Glyde will let you list old items for sale for a percentage of the sale price.
While newer and better conditioned items will fetch higher prices, there are buyers out there for older and somewhat damaged goods as well.
But remember! Make sure you wipe the device of any personal information before you sell it!
You may think you have enough socked away, but financial planners caution that these items may derail some of the best-laid plans:
Luxury Auto: Average cost $55,000
Dream Wedding For Your Child: Average cost $33,000
Dream Around-the-World Cruise: Average cost $25,000
Big Toys: 22-foot sailboat average Cost $25,000 + upkeep
