Many people have at least a few old gadgets lying around in their homes but the thought of throwing it away sometimes is just too emotionally heavy. Even though modern technology is rapidly evolving and can offer us things that a few decades ago were simply unimaginable, sometimes you just can't resist the good old nostalgia. Even when those damn gadgets have gone out of order ages ago. And we still don't seem to be able to let go of them.
But let's get real for a sec—if you've got some old tech that no longer works piling up in your home, you should definitely get rid of it. Seriously, recycle it. It's not that hard—just go to your nearest electronics recycling point (and don't forget to bring your goods along with you). You're gonna declutter your home while at the same time helping the environment—two birds with one stone!
And now let's take a moment to talk about those old gadgets that STILL WORK and don't seem to stop anytime soon, even after all these years. Yes, the true MVPs. Twitter user Zoe Kleinman recently asked her followers to tell her about their oldest functioning gadgets and got some pretty interesting answers. We invite you to have a look through some of these old devices people are still using today. Spoiler alert—some of these gadgets are more than 50 years old!
