DH and I are trying to figure out the best way to deal with eTrash. DH has a business doing computer service so he's got a fair amount of eTrash around. Also our neighbor gave him a CRT TV that was bigger than our current TV (well, ANY TV is bigger than ours... we have a 15") but it doesn't have any closed captioning device onboard so we're stuck with a TV I can't use (I'm deaf).

I've checked a lot of those places out but we're just not ready to spend the money yet. So I suggested to DH that we start an electronic graveyard in our basement. Maybe sometime it will be cheaper, or we will find a place within driving distance so we only pay the fee and not shipping, or whatever.
