NextWorth.com: Gone are the simple days of crayons, paste and scissors — kids want gadgets. Bigger needs and tighter budgets require shopping creativity, which is why I love NextWorth.com. Here, you can recycle your old electronics for cash. Simply find your item in the database, send it in and get paid. Payouts I discovered include an Apple iPhone 4 worth $261, an 8GB iPod touch worth $92 and even a Call of Duty video game worth $17. Or, do a trade-in at Target Mobile locations nationwide and receive a prepaid Target card for the value of the trade-in, or credit toward a new purchase.
