Know someone over 50 who is making a difference? Nominate them for the AARP Purpose Prize.

If like the rest of us you've upgraded and have a stash of old cellphones, video game players and other electronic devices, don't let them clutter up the house. You can get good money for many of them from online companies such as NextWorth.com and Gazelle.com. A used iPhone (depending on age, condition and model) could net you $200. You go to the websites, list what you have and receive an offer. If you accept, you receive a check, PayPal credit or gift card. Your electronics are refurbished and resold, or recycled. Be sure to delete all personal data from any devices you sell
