Having scrap appliances at home can eat more space in the house. Unless it really a vintage one, there is no reason for them to keep and just to be full of dust throughout the year and even more. Some people are too attached with old things because of some sentimental value and they always think the original cost when they bought it and compare it with the devaluated value cost.
Appliances like old video camera, VHS rewinder, VHS player, walkman, and so on. I have actually have them, it is not that I am holding them back, I just do not have the time and opportunity to bring them on the junk shop or have it picked by scrap buyers. I will try to convert them into cash by selling them and purchase a new one that I currently need.
