I just bought an electric blanket which had not been used since it was made in 1976. At that time the retail price was £18, I paid £10. The equivalent to £18 in 1976 is something insane, like about £130.

Depends on the item but usually about half its cost. Keep it another 25 years it may be worth double or triple. Has to be complete like new in box

If they are “mint in box”, hold them for another 15-20 years. Not old enough now to be worth as much as you paid even.

Government inventory for electronics 5 years and older is zero and is surplussed out. Personal items have whatever value for their usefulness or what someone else is willing to pay for it.Source(s): U.S. Naval Office of Records

What is the item? Computer? Not very much--phone? Could be worth something--alarm clock? Probably worth nothing--etc etc.

Impossible to answer without knowing what the item is.

It depends on the item.

Value depends on the brand, model, and condition of the specific item.
There is no instant formula or calculator for it.

30 to 20 percent of the original value.
