Purge that Pile of Junk with the Best Buy Recycle Program

When I came home from the hospital with our new little love a couple of weeks ago, the first thing I did was stock up on movies. Some for me, since I expected to be up all night, and some for my son, who I knew would be pretty bored while Mommy was stuck recovering on the couch for a while.

Still working, but outdated. It’s kind of sad, really, for the poor, once-loved technology as well as the environment!
