How many electrical products do you have that are just lying around your house or garage or basement etc?
I'm talking about televisions, radios, tape recorders etc
These days when something is bought it is not long before a new version comes out that makes the old one look ancient.
Also, when something breaks down these days, it's usually cheaper to just throw it out and get a new one than have it repaired because most of the
time it is cheaper to do this.
Last year our 3 year old washing machine broke down so I bought a new one and put the old one in the local council skip for such things. Yesterday a
toaster finally gave up the ghost so I threw it out and bought a cheap one that does the same job for half the price of the one that broke down.
In my loft, I have working free view boxes, a tv, an old monitor for my pc before I got a flat screen for it, a smaller flat screen for same pc, and a
lot more working gadgets that I have replaced with newer models.
I even found 2 old mobile phones that still work but I don't use them.
Maybe I should sell the lot on gum tree or suchlike.
Not as if I'm rich or anything but just stuff that's accumulated over the years.
What do other members think?
