I mean mobile phones, computers, tablets, laptops etc that go on the internet?
I was trying to count all ours and was horrified to work out we have 4 tablets, several phones ( only 2 in constant use ) 2 laptops ( plus a couple of old ones that we don’t use). 3 computers all used quite a bit. Not to mention 5 TV sets. I think we’ve lost the plot and I am not getting any more , we need our heads looking at.

1 phone and one computer each, 1 tv, then we both have a small laptop each, that we rarely use at home, They are for use when we are away from home or at home in France.

Once any piece of equipment becomes surplus to requirements it is passed on to someone or recycled. I do not do clutter of any kind.

Between the two of us we have 1 TV, 1 desktop, 2 iPhones, 4 Kindles (2 Fire, 2 Paperwhite).

I’m surprised to see so many people who, like us, have just the one TV. I thought it was more unusual these days.

Same as Monica, 1 phone and laptop each, plus one tablet each only used when going abroad.

I also have a new tumble dryer which can apparently connect to the internet, but I am no doing that, much better to get up and go and turn it off than sit on the sofa and use a phone to do so!

2 lap tops,5 mobiles.

There are several organisations which refurbish devices to give to schools. A lady near us has completed almost 400 items. We gave her three laptops.
We still have three laptops, two iPads, two iPhones, 3 non smart TVs,

1 laptop and 1 iphone. That's all.
