Does Your House Suffer From Gadget Obesity?

According to the Gadget Mass Index, 42% of Americans suffer from “Extreme Gadget Obesity” (a measure of a person’s propensity to store unused gadgets).  Oh boy!  Can I relate to this!  The new year inspired my husband and I to seriously look in the “I’ll figure out what to do with this later” drawers and clean them out.  So many gadgets and electronics!


To calculate the country’s gadget obesity rates for the new year, used electronics marketplace asked 1,000 Americans how long they keep devices they no longer use (instead of selling them or otherwise disposing of them).  This is a fun infographic.  Where do you fit in this rates?
